Quirt: Showing Animals Respect and Kindness

I want to bring up a subject that most cowgirls wont ever bring up (though im not sure im full cowgirl anyways). It's called SHARK, Showing Animals Respect and Kindness. Now first of all I am a fan of rodeos! I love riding in them watching them all around I think they are awesome but some events and some rodeos can go too far. Shark is an organization that shows what can happen at rodeos and how they can be downright horrible to the animals. One thing I want to point out is that Bull riding is not one of the events that i'm talking about it's a man against bull I think the bull has a fair enough advantage. Though I do think its horrible to shock the bulls like at some rodeos, lets do it the old fashioned way please. The kind of event Im talking about is the super competitive calf roping were calves die all the time because its horse, rider and rope against a small calf who just wants his mommy. One more event is steer tripping this is where they rope the steer and drag them across the arena sooo many steers die from this. Lets treat these animals with respect and have fun with them but to an extent please don't go this far.. Here is a video on these events that Ive been talking about
Ok thanks for reading! And on a happier note im going to upload some pictures from me and Quirks ranch sleepover! First is a picture of Quirk on Brego and second is a picture of Quirt (me) on Timmy!

Quirt: grrrrrr
So I said i was going to post pictures yesterday and beleive me I tried but my computer was acting all goofy i swear it has a mind of its own. So then I tried putting the pictures into a layout but that didnt work either soooo... ya. I have the pictures but I have yet to post them and I would post them now except for im not on my computer so I will try to post them tomorrow haha Ive said that before. Anyways, I notice that Quirk hasn't blogged as much as me so im pretty much hogging the blog but oh well. What did i do today? Well I went to the farmers market and bought strawberries! Yumm!! Then I went to the ranch and polished my barrel saddle then I came home and polished my boots! Now I feel very accomplished!!! Ok ttyl!!

Quirk: Current Faves

Hey everyone, as you may have read, I had my birthday recently, and some of my presents are turning out to be real favorites, so I thought I would share them with you. :) The first item is actually chap stick, a tinted version and a carrot flavored one. Coincidentally, the name of the brand is Yes To CarrotsCute ya? The coolest thing is, the carrot flavored "lip butter" as they call it, actually smells like carrots, and it's really moisturizing for those of us (mee) with dry lips all the time.

Quirk: chickens!!

 Hey ya'll!

Exciting news over here, my chickens laid their first eggs today. To be specific, Charlotte (our Delaware hen) laid her first egg around 10:00 am on Saturday. She was very tired and her combed pale out for ten minutes or so, but who can blame her, she laid an egg!! It was very exciting, a perfect little brown egg. To make things more exciting, Scarlett (our Rhode Island Red hen) was acting funny all day today, rooting around in the nesting boxes and cackling all morning. Around 2:10, she got really loud so I went out to check on them, and lo and behold in her nesting box lay a tiny brown egg, a little bit darker than Charlotte's and a little bit smaller. I am so incredibly proud of my darling chickens, hopefully the other three will follow suit and start laying in the next week or two. Unfortunately with the days getting shorter, we're not sure how long they'll continue laying for the year, chickens don't lay in the winter usually, but maybe with our Southern California winters... I'm also including a picture of Scarlett and a picture of the two eggs in comparison to the eggs we've been buying at the store (large, organic, free range).I'll talk to ya'll later.
