I will be honest with all of you: I'd rather spend all day outside mucking up horse poop than spend an equal amount of time inside fiddling with my computer.

Howdy everyone! March is flying by: the geese have settled on the river (I am fascinated by them for whatever reason and Molly sure likes to watch them as well.) and the warmer weather has drawn us outside to enjoy the beautiful outdoors that surround here at our Colorado Dude Ranch.
