5 Ways to Be a Winner…In Life and In the Show Ring

By Sally Long There’s a famous quote that says…”Sit with the winners, the conversation is different…” We love this quote and recently I have done some reflecting on what my conversations with true winners have looked like: 1.     Winners don’t make excuses. So things didn’t go your way and you had a bad show. It is so easy to find blame in the judge, the setup, the situation and anything else that could possibly help explain the disappointment.  However, all of those things are out of your control as a competitor. Winners let go of the things they cannot control …

5 Things You Learn From Showing Cattle

Growing up in a family that showed livestock, I often took for granted the things I was learning along the way. I thought it was normal to get up at 5:30 every morning and make sure all of the four-legged, 1,000-pound animals ate breakfast before I did. I thought every kid had friends across the state, who they spent more time with than their classmates. But after going off to college and entering the “real world” I soon learned that this is not the norm. So it got me thinking, what else did I learn from my cattle that other …

8 Feed Mixing Room Stories Only Livestock People Will Understand

Through my years of showing cattle, some my funniest fights / scares / memories happened in our little feed and tack room of our small show barn. Even today, my sister and I look back and laugh at some of the funny stories that went down in that 10 x 10 dark dusty space. Can you relate to any of these? 1. There were daily fights over who got to pour the feed and who had to deliver the feed. When we showed, we always had our cattle tied up during the day, and then turned them out at night. So, …

10 Things Horse People Know All Too Well

1. Why buy an expensive fur vest when you could save the hair from shedding season and craft one of your own? You’ll be an original in the fall, and you won’t have to worry about someone having the same vest as you (I’m just kidding, y’all—don’t actually do this). Horse people get excited for spring because of the beautiful weather and comfortable temperatures, but there’s always a downside… shedding season sets in and it shows no mercy. Let’s put it this way, you can’t even feed without getting their excess hair all over you. 2. Blankets are seasonal (and are …

Don’t Stop Looking

By Katie Thacker Winter has arrived at the farm. This means longer nights in less daylight, frozen water, heat lamps, cutting wood for the stoves, keeping a closer eye out for new arrivals, and freezing your tail off when you go out to feed. But it also means sledding down massive hills and teaching little ones how to make snowballs and snowmen – and what snow NOT to eat. It means dressing your kids in eight layers to take them out for eight minutes before they need a diaper change, but watching their faces as they squeal for joy over something …
