I Love May!

 I love May, so full of fresh promise. Spring and summer are still a bit elusive in our foothills community – we aren’t quite there yet – but you can feel the warmth and see the growth. The fun of summer is just outside of our grasp. How exciting! 


During the month of May, we celebrate my husband, Chuck’s, birthday and our wedding anniversary. And, I always love the Mother’s Day holiday. Even though I’m not a mother and my mother has passed, I so enjoy honoring everyone else’s mother. At TallGrass, we truly love taking care of so many mothers during this month, turning the tables and giving them the tender loving attention, just the way they lavish on their families the rest of the year. 


This month, I have another reason to celebrate: there’s a new “girl” in my life. We just brought home “Lady,” a Tennessee Walker mare as the newest member of our Lucky Penny Ranch. She is making her stablemate, Jack Flash, ecstatic with her good looks and saucy manner. The trails of Evergreen are calling to me, just as soon as this last spring snow melts!


Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful women! We hope to celebrate with you!
