The New Chapter

Ok, so I know it's been pretty much forever since the last time I blogged... I will get better!!

So it's been a crazy couple of weeks for me. Adam and I applied for a job out at the Y.O. Ranch. It is a 40,000 acre ranch down in the Hill Country of Texas. They have over 55 exotic species to hunt as well as a horse program. Well, we went and interviewed and we got it! Adam will be a hunting guide and a hunting camp counselor and I am going to be the head wrangler. They are also providing housing and meals, which is awesome. They also said we can bring our horses and dogs! Yay!

We have changes to our family, though... We had to sell Evenin, Adam wanted a horse he could ride, which I don't blame him at all. Evening was bought by the nicest man and we got to see where she will live, and she will be really happy with them. We bought a new mare, named Bug, from a really good friend of mine. Adam absolutely loves this horse, and he is doing really well on her. It is so fun to ride with him and goof around. We will have to get rid of most our dogs, though, because we don't need 7 dogs at the ranch. We have homes for all of them and we are just taking Coal and Clutch.

So yeah, this move is a huge life change. I am really excited, because I will be on a horse everyday and help people learn about horses and riding, and I will still be doing camps in the summer. I am also nervous, though, because it's such a huge change! I think once we get the flow of things, we will both fall in love with the job. We are moving a week from Saturday, so it doesn't give us much time to pack! I can't wait to be back in the Hill Country. I love Amarillo, don't get me wrong. It has so much fun outdoor stuff to do like riding and fishing, but it's not like the Hill Country. I can't wait to ride under the big oak trees, swim in the Guadalupe River, and watch the deer graze.

Other than that, there's not much new happening. I traded my truck in for a Jeep Wrangler, and I love it!! It is one of the funnest vehicles I have ever driven! It's navy blue with a tan soft top. It's also a 6 cylendar and has a 3" lift, which is plenty for me! I figure it will get around on a ranch way better than my 2 wheel drive cummins.

So that's a sum of where my life is headed. Adam and I are moving 450 miles south with our two horses and two dogs to work on an exotic game ranch. Oh! They also have giraffes you can pet! And zebras! I will try to figure out how to upload pictures on here, but no promises... haha.

Well, I guess that's enough rambling for now... :)


  1. We are going to miss you so much! I'm sad you are leaving, but happy that you got such a great new job!

  2. Enjoy this new adventure. And I posted my piece about the museum including the pic with you in it and a link to your blog.
