There will be changes– in my life and in this blog. But before we get to that, enjoy these pictures taken while riding my horse in the Crazies, Sweetgrass County, Montana.

Still on my horse – we were moving cattle.

Historic ranch house, Sweetgrass Ranch. We stayed in the haunted historic bunk house.
This is such a beautiful place. If ever you have the hankerin’, head to Sweetgrass Ranch north of Big Timber, Montana. It’s wild – wolves, bear, mountain goats, coyotes, cougars, marmots, elk, deer, antelope, golden eagles, bald eagles… We saw them all. This is not trail riding. This is real riding on real horses that spend 8 months of the year turned out in the mountains. You get to move cattle, restore trails- for those of you ‘crazy’ enough you can use a chainsaw or at least pack one in on your horse- search for runaway horses, mend fences and gates, eat amazing homemade food because there are no fastfood joints anywhere in the vicinity.
The best thing about Sweetgrass besides the horses and the company? No TV, no internet, no cell phones. Plus I got to spend time helping my daughter and son in law – moved their cattle – most of the land we ride on belongs to them as they border Sweetgrass on three sides. My son in law is improving – it’s barely been five weeks since his accident. He might be back on a horse in 3-4 more months. He hopes…
And yeah, we had a helpful ghost in the bunkhouse. No kidding. Nice ghost.
