Howdy Partner!


I was out in Galisteo a few weekends ago and as I was walking past this horse corral I saw this metal cowboy getting ready to lasso someone or something. Glad it wasn't me. The day was perfect, with the green Junipers and and the blue sky it almost felt like Spring.

Look at that beautiful New Mexico sky! Don't you just love living in the American West? (I couldn't live anywhere else.) Have a great day, cowboy!

That is very nice!
Love this friendly cowboy, little things like this can make difference in our day. :)
Have a lovely Sunday!

Looks like a perfect day. I heard the cowboy speak, though, and noticed he had a very metallic voice.

But what really got me is he said, "Howdy, ma'am!" I ain't no "ma'am"!
