  1. I loved vacations in Texas when we got to go horseback riding.

  2. I worked at a cattle yard as a teen. I was supposed to be in the office, but wanted so badly to be out with the horses! They finally gave me the opportunity to come to work at 5 am and help round up the cattle with the cutting horses. My first time on a cutting horse and no one told me they know what to do on their own! I pulled left and they cut right! Almost fell off several times, but what a ride!!!!

  3. I broke my ankle in the early spring at 15 years old. Wanted to go visit a friend across the river, but of course I couldn't walk on crutches or ride a bike, so I borrowed another friend's horse to make the trip. It wasn't graceful (or pretty) getting up and down on the horse, but I was able to make it. And yes, I am a Taurus! Deb E / Oregon mdenders@msn.com

  4. I can remember when I was about 6 years old, all I wanted for Christmas that year was a pair of blue jeans and a pair of cowboy boots. This was in the early 60's when they didn't make blue jeans for girls. Momma and daddy got me a pair from the boys dept and the smallest size of cowboy boots. Of course the boots were too big but I wore them around the house anyway. I watched Roy Rogers and Gene Autry on tv everyday.

  8. I'm kind of a "rural girl", but I did go to horseback-riding camp in Girl Scouts. Then I met a girl there who lived on a farm and she invited me over to ride her horse. It is memorable. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

  12. When we went to Yellowstone, we camped in North Dakota at a state park, and one of the other campers had horses. They let the kids have a ride on the horses.

  13. The first time I was on a pony, I called him "a stinkin' old horse,"

  14. I haven been horseback riding since i was a girl scout. It would be fun to do again though!

  15. My only cowboy experience would be when I was 17 I dated a guy who was in the rodeo, he was actually the stare champion in Colorado! That was pretty cool

  17. I lived on a farm when I was little - we had a horse and used to ride him bareback - then several years ago I took horseback riding lessons - they are amazing animals

    ReplyDelete
  18. I loved it the first time I went to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. Great skills and lots of fun. Seeing Chicago live afterwards was icing on the cake!

  20. Cute panel. I went horse back riding in high school with a guide and three treasured girl friends. We were staying a week at Mountain Lake in Virginia.
    My one friend, Vivian, had a very naughty horse, and Vivian was freaking out. All of us were laughing so hard. I am grateful I had a good horse. They are wonderful animals.
    Now playing cowboys? hmmmm, the closest thing I can think of is playing with cap guns.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I volunteer with the Blacksmith Committee of the Calgary Exhibition & Stampede. I'm a city girl, but can now make a horseshoe and fireplace poker! Lots of cowboys at Stampede time!

  24. Visited The Scarlet Thread and would've loved to be in the class for 'My Kinda Town Block of the Month'. Such a clever foundation pieced house quilt!

  25. I got to ride my first horse as a sophomore in college...I was on a summer internship in Jackson when a group of us were invited for lunch at the professors farm and it was the hugest horse I have ever been next to or on...it was wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  26. My worst experience: We lived in Kansas City. The American Royal Horse Show! Mother and I always went to the show on the morning of the parade because everyone was at the parade. Hopalong Cassidy was the marshall one year, and just as we came around a corner here was his team having to help get him on his horse. Super cowboys weren't supposed to be human, and need help. I can still remember that.

    My best happened several years later. I am now a 22 year old mother of two preschoolers whom I took to the Royal. My husband couldn't breath around all the hay etc. We stayed for the horse show that night, but couldn't afford seats so I stood just outside the arena and held up first one boy and then another. Not good, but the most I could afford. One of the men who helped stage the arena for the different classes said here lady these aren't going to be used tonight. He pushed two of the barrelracer's barrels over next to the wall, and even lifted one of the boys up on to it. We put one boy on each barrel and I could stand between them to hold on to them. I never even got his name, but I have always remembered his help.

  27. While on holidays out West, I was coerced to go horse back riding with our daughter who was 12 at the time. My horse was difficult and would lag behind the others on our ride, which meant that he would gallop to catch up!!! I was near to tears so worried that I'd fall off!! I know that horses are very intelligent and the one I was riding knew I was nervous!!! Never again!!

  40. Everyday is cowgirl day at our farm. I have a big red angus steer named "Red" who follows me around like a puppy. He was really confused during our total eclipse! Signed up for their newsletter. I like how they have their fabric organized by color.

  45. When I was a little girl my dad had a friend who owned some horses and we would go to his ranch and ride the ponies. I was small so of course the horses looked huge to me. I learned to hold your hand out flat when feeding a horse....ask me how I know.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I don't know if I really had any experience with Cowboys and a Girls. However when I was around 9 or 10 I loved to watch the Lone Ranger after school. It's pretty corney, but I thought it was cool when I was a kid. Have a great day! dawnm1993(at)gmail(dot)com

  55. Wish I had a cowgirl story to tell....but I don't. Had friends with horses, neighbours with horses, but didn't have much interest in them myself.

  56. Summers at grannies ran with my cousins who had horses, no saddles. One day they let me at 14 ride alone. I was so excited. But I had Champion in gear to run and I felt the wind and he galloped so fast I could barely hold on. Now 67, I still feel the ripples of laughter during the ride. First time I had ever felt it.

  66. I was raised in South Dakota. Rodeos were a big thing there. I also had a boyfriend who had a horse, so we rode often. I still watch rodeos and Bull riding today. I would love to win the fabric panel and make the dolls for my grandkids. Thank you for the opportunity.

  67. I grew up on a farm with horses, cows, chickens, and pigs! I received a cowgirl outfit from Santa one year! Loved it!

  68. The closest I came to a cowboy experience was growing up with a pet horse and a pet pony - at different times of course.

  70. I am definitely as city girl--NYC to be honest but my family had a one room weekend cabin in the woods. When I was about 7 my father bought a shetland pony for us at an auction. My parents drove it home in the back of their station wagon! It stayed at a nearby farm during the week and on weekends it came home to us.

  81. My father-in-law, who unfortunately died in 2005, was a cattle farmer in Kentucky. He had a relatively small family farm, and he was the third generation to farm that land. I'm fortunately to live in an old farmhouse on that farm now, and it's so very beautiful. Back when I was just becoming a member of the family, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, I loved riding around the farm with my father-in-law in his truck and learning about the cattle and the farm. I can't say that I was any help, though I would occasionally open and close gates, but I hope he enjoyed my company just a bit. I wouldn't trade that time for anything. He was a kind and gentle man; and he had a passion for his cattle and his farm.

  87. I grew up on a small dairy farm. when the new calves were born in the spring through fall, my sister and I would often take it upon ourselves to go our and catch that calf and take it to the barn for our dad. We were too small to carry the calf and it definitely wouldn't walk alongside us with a rope around it's neck so we got out our little wagon and loaded it on while one of us pulled and the other one held onto the calf so it didn't squirm off the wagon.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I live on a ranch and grew up working in the hayfield, mowing and raking hay in the summer. I have been feeding a bottle calf when our son is away and the calf is always ready for that milk!
