Funny Friday

A Russian, an American, and a Blonde were talking one day.

The Russian said, 'We were the first in space!'

The American said, 'We were the first on the moon!'

The Blonde said, 'So what? We're going to be the first on the sun!' The Russian and the American looked at each other and shook their heads.

'You can't land on the sun, you idiot! You'll burn up!' said the Russian.

To which the Blonde replied, 'We're not stupid, you know We're going at night!'

Training Tip of the Week:
By Clinton Anderson

Never forget that horses have the quickest reaction time of any domesticated animal.

If a horse gets frightened, and you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, things could get ugly in a hurry. More people get hurt every year by broke, quiet horses than they do by wild horses because people take them for granted and take more risks around them. I always tell my Apprentices, “If you treat every horse like a wild mustang, you’ll never get hurt.” Get in the habit of practicing safety around all horses so that you’ll never get caught off guard. Many people will get into the habit of being lazy around their horse, where they won’t always stand at a 45-degree angle or keep their hand up by the horse’s eye as they desensitize him. Then one day their neighbor asks them to come over to work with a new horse they just got. So they’ll go and start throwing the leadrope at this new horse and wonder why he runs straight over the top of them. Never assume a horse is safe. Always make him prove it to you.

Happy Safe Trails,

"Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide
how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us."
— Stephen Covey: Personal development author and speaker

Our choice!

Our mind also flows through our cells, want to be healthy, choose thoughts that strengthen not weaken.

Next time you have pains or sickness instead of supporting the pharmaceutical companies, set down with yourself and ask, what is going on, what is weakening my body, how have I been reacting to circumstances in my life. Observing yourself can help diagnose the problem, changing the way you react will move you into a happier healthier lifestyle.

I received this message the other day from Neale Donald Walsh he states;
....that thinking the highest thought is the safest mental

Do not be tempted to think the smallest thought or to
lower your expectations so that anything above that
will be considered a "win" for you. You will have
already lost...

Your safety will not be found in working hard to avoid
disappointment, but in hardly working to produce more
and more life. Aim high. Ride easy.

Funny Friday

What is it about someone falling that is pee your pants funny? Funny if you get to witness it not so funny if your the one falling.

One day back in 1980's we were at the horse races in South Jordan, our horse was in the race, we won the race and through my excitement I hooked my heel on the bleachers and tried to recover, four steps later, I splattered, the whole bleachers let out a ahhh, just as if a jockey had been tossed off, I buggered up my elbow and knee, as I lay there twisted and broken all my mother did was look at me with embarrassment and said what the hell are you doing! The rest of the day anytime I walked past anyone they would whisper there is that girl that fell out of the bleachers. Funny for all of them, not so funny for me.

In the youtube video I especially like the guy looking at the girls on the beach only to fall on top of a girl on the ground.

Zen Horse

Training Tip of the Week:
By Clinton Anderson

If you want your horse to change, you have to be willing to change first.

That is the most important concept you can understand when it comes to training horses. When I was an apprentice for Ian Francis, he often said to me, “To change your life, you must first change your attitude.” Ian believes, as do I, that if you’re unhappy with the current state of your life, you need to change your attitude and perceive your life the way you’d like for it to be. I’ve incorporated that saying into training horses – “If you want to change your horse, you must first change the way you interact with him.” When you interact with your horse in a way that he understands, you’ll get results. But if you keep doing the same thing, you’ll keep getting the same results. If you want a different reaction from your horse and want to progress your horsemanship, you’ll have to change the way you work around him and start seeing things from his point of view.

Amazing how all things tie back to attitude.

Happy Trails,

"Success in life comes from being willing to move

into Unchartered Territory."

Always remember: "Life begins at the end of your

Comfort Zone."

How true!!! My growth on a personal and business level accelerates when I face my fears and head into "Unchartered Territory". I have teased for years that as soon as I enter a comfort zone in life it's time for me to make a substantial move. I like living on the border of chaos and order, it stimulates my mind and makes me think. The only way we experience life is to jump right in the middle of it, the only way to gain more out of life is to head into "Unchartered Territory".

A year ago I chartered new territory, so glad I did.

Lets all get numerous stamps in our passport of LIFE!

On The Road Again

Two "On The Road Again's" Into One!

Oh my, take a breath sit down and blogg! The past two weeks have been overflowing with activity. Packed with new electrifying business adventures. Electrifying is the right adjective as one of those business' is revolutionizing health care through building cells with precise electrical current.

Destiny, Dusdee, and I headed to Las Vegas for the CEO SPACE conference, we were there to help John Thorp/Thorp Institute assist in promoting Energy Medicine. I was so impressed I was in awe. This conference was mind blowing, CEO SPACE is a private club which hosts five business trade programs each year for enrolled members. Their mission is to reduce cost and time to reach growth goals for business'.

A world trade show of business, had I transcended into business heaven? I was shaking hands and being introduced to executives of fortune 500 companies as well as authors such as Mark Victor Hansen, yes I met and talked to "Mark Victor Hansen!"

Our position was to introduce this Micro-Current Technology that will change the face of medicine as we know it today. We definitely received attention. We met doctors, investors, marketing agents, CFO'S, CEO'S actors, authors, all very successful and all interested in how this advanced computer technology successfully relieves pain and promotes healing 2 to 3 times faster than traditional medicine.

Dusdee flew back to Wyoming, Destiny and I headed northbound full of excitement and energy, I dropped her off in Salina at 2am and I pulled in my garage just after 4am , energy consumed.

Two days to repack, return emails and phone calls then it was off to sunny southern California for additional training with the Acu-scope and Myo-pulse. Four days jammed packed with INFORMATION, and a dreaded test at the end of it. Could this "Old Dog" learn new tricks, how long has it been since I set in a structured class setting, 1970 what!

We all passed with A+'s, Whew! School is much easier when your learning something you are passionate about. Now I am an official Acu-Myo Techie.

Finished class at 3pm Sunday, drove all the way to Park City and arrived home this time at 3:30 am. Again energy consumed!

On the road again next week, only this time I only have to drive to the airport:-) Flying to El Paso Texas home of the Lucchese Boot Company, this trip I preview the Denver market line and design more snappy boots.

G R A N D M A' S H A N D S

Grandma, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench.
She didn't move, just sat with her head down staring at her hands.
When I sat down beside her she didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat I wondered if she was OK Finally, not really wanting to disturb her but wanting to check on her at the same time, I asked her if she was OK.
She raised her head and looked at me and smiled.
'Yes, I'm fine, thank you for asking,' she said in a clear strong voice.
'I didn't mean to disturb you, grandma, but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were OK,' I explained to her.
'Have you ever looked at your hands,' she asked.
'I mean really looked at your hands?
I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them.
I turned them over, palms up and then palms down.
No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands as I tried to figure out the point she was making.
Grandma smiled and related this story:
'Stop and think for a moment about the hands you have, how they have served you well throughout your years.
These hands, though wrinkled shriveled and weak have been the tools I have used all my life to reach out and grab and embrace life..
'They braced and caught my fall when as a toddler I crashed upon the floor.
They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back.
As a child, my mother taught me to fold them in prayer.
They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots.
They held my husband and wiped my tears when he went off to war.
'They have been dirty, scraped and raw , swollen and bent.
They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son.
Decorated with my wedding band they showed the world that I was married and loved someone special.
They wrote my letters to him and trembled and shook when I buried my parents and spouse.
'They have held my children and grandchildren, consoled neighbors, and shook in fists of anger when I didn't understand.
They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body. They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw.
And to this day when not much of anything else of me works real well these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to fold in prayer.
'These hands are the mark of where I've been and the ruggedness of life.
But more importantly it will be these hands that God will reach out and take when he leads me home.
And with my hands He will lift me to His side and there I will use these hands to touch the face of God.

Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Happy Birthday to my Mom, "Grandma Red". What a wonderful example of hard work and dedication she is, still working everyday manufacturing her invention of the Indian Blanket Seat Covers, Donna (Mom) started with Burns Saddlery clear back in the 50's, invented the seat covers in the 60's and many decades later still contributes her time and creativity to our 6 generation Family Owned Business.

Growing up she not only taught me work ethic she taught me how to have fun. She would invent games and always kept us busy either working or playing. Mom is a wonderful writer she wrote many skits and material for me to perform as an active student. Her cooking is incredible, and her generosity is endless.

I love you Mom, Thank You for all you have done for not only our family but the entire western lifestyle family.

My thoughts and well wishes are with you even if my physical self is in California, I'll bet you wished you hadn't passed on that "Damn Responsibility Gene" that keeps me chasing all over.

Have an extra piece of cake for me, you make the best. Heck freeze me a piece, chocolate with white coconut icing!!!

P.S. Someone will have to show her this, she has never read my blog:-) too busy working.

Dream Big

"Spend some time alone every day."

In order to "Dream Big" you must find that quite space alone to create. I remember when I was young my little brother Dallas who was 7 years younger than I would escape off by himself and take a piece of grass and play with it on his thumb nail, I was amazed at the trance he would fall into, I wondered if there was something wrong with him, what I now discovered was there was something right with him.

Dallas was an incredible spirit, he vibrated at a level of consciousness higher than anyone I had ever met. In 1976 we tragically lost Dallas he was only 10 years old, his wisdom however was lifetimes ahead of mine.

Dallas you inspired me to go off by myself and dream, I now know that we are timeless energy, and that we can unite in that invisibleness that you used to escape too.

"When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes
out - because that's what's inside. When you are
squeezed, what comes out is what is inside."
— Wayne Dyer: Self-development author and speaker

When I think back at times in my life when I was not very proud of my reaction to a circumstance it really revealed who I was at the time, my thoughts feelings and emotions exploded with the squeezing revealing myself to me and everyone who witnessed my shortcomings.

It is important to be squeezed every once in a while to see what comes out. Sometimes I do very well and other times I am very bitter. My intention is that what I am putting into myself when squeezed will flow sweetly, James Allen said it best, "Circumstances don't make a man, they reveal him."

I don't believe any of us would have done it!!!!

Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma
Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop

Long term, team players needed, for challenging,
permanent work in an
often chaotic environment.
Candidates must possess excellent communication

and organizational skills and be willing to work
variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends
and frequent 24 hour shifts on call.
Some overnight travel required, including trips to

primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities!
Travel expenses not reimbursed
Extensive courier duties also required.

The rest of your life.
Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily,
until someone needs $5.
Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly..

Also, must possess the physical stamina of a
pack mule
and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat
in case, this time, the screams from
the backyard are not someone just crying wolf.

Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges,
such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets
and stuck zippers.
Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and

coordinate production of multiple homework projects.
Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings
for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.
Must be willing to be indispensable one minute,

an embarrassment the next.
Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a
half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.
Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.

Must assume final, complete accountability for
the quality of the end product.
Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and
janitorial work throughout the facility.

Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills,

so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you

None required unfortunately.
On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.

Get this! You pay them!

Offering frequent raises and bonuses.
A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because
of the assumption that college will help them
become financially independent.

When you die, you give them whatever is left.
The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that
you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.


While no health or dental insurance, no pension,
no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and
no stock options are offered;
this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth, unconditional love,
and free hugs and kisses for life if you play your cards right.

All of it worth it, I can say that all three of mine are legal adults:-)!

Zen Horse

Training Tip of the Week:
By Clinton Anderson
Give your horse a purpose.

Don’t go out and do the same boring thing the same boring way every single day. Your horse will learn to hate his job. You can do the same exercises as long as you do them in different ways. For example, give the horse a reason to do the groundwork by doing the Sending Exercise in and out of the pasture gate, or through a puddle. Have him jump over a log. Back him around some trees or cones. Doing the groundwork outside is a great way to train on your horse without him even realizing that you’re doing it because it keeps it so interesting for him. Use your imagination. Challenge yourself and your horse every day.

Great Tip for Horses and Life.

When you pray for anyone, you tend to modify

your personal attitude toward them.

Norman Vincent Peale said that, and he touched on

something truly profound. If someone is vexing you

right now, say a prayer for that person. Send them all

of your best energies.

Nothing changes the environment like one person

deciding to love another, no matter what.

This daily message was sent to me by Neale Donald Walsh, I appreciate getting these helpful messages, they promote positive thought stimuli to our subconscious, so when the occasions arrive, we can spontaneously pull from the messages we have read creating a positive reaction to our situations.

Every thought is essentially a prayer we are constantly sending out into the universe, the more loving our thoughts, the better our world becomes, I am much more aware of the thoughts/prayers I send out, my intention is they all be filled with love.

Butternut Squash Soup
Recipe found on

1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/2 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1/2 butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 cups chicken stock
1/2 cube chicken bouillon
1 pinch ground cumin
1 pinch ground allspice
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat; cook the onion, garlic, and thyme in the hot butter until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Add the squash and chicken stock; bring to a simmer and cook until the squash is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Crumble the bouillon into the soup; season with cumin, allspice, salt, and pepper; remove from heat.
Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway. Hold the lid of the blender in place with a kitchen towel and carefully start the blender using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a serving bowl. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup in the pot.

I love fall cooking, its the best! Temperatures are cooling, time for soup!

Training Tip of the Week:
By Clinton Anderson

Back your horse up
everywhere you go.

I very rarely just lead my horse somewhere. I back my horses up everywhere. Like most of you, I have a limited amount of time to actually spend with my horses, so as long as I’m with them, I might as well be teaching them something. So I could drag a horse from Point A to Point B and would get to where I needed to go. Or I could back him there and I would still get to where I needed to go, plus he would have learned something by the time he got there. I try to use every opportunity as a training opportunity. It gives me a chance to gain respect from my horse as well as fine-tune the control I have of his feet. I’ll back a horse in and out of his stall, into the arena, all the way back to the barn, etc. The better a horse backs up, the better he’ll do everything else.

Who knew all this time my going backwards I was learning how to do everything better:-)
