Bulldogging Baby

Baby Doll Combs (record). Ball O’Flash (record).

Baby Doll Combs, owned by steer wrestler and Rodeo Champion Willard Combs is thought to be the best Steer Wrestling horse, or “bulldogger” that ever rode the circuit.  During her seven peak years of rodeo competition from 1953 to when she died in 1960 she earned over $400,000 in prize money, which in today’s dollars would amount to around $2,965,000. In 1957 Willard Combs won the Championship Steer Wrestling title on Baby Doll, and that year, the cowboys who took second, third, fourth and fifth in the standings were also riding Baby Doll.  Famous Rodeo Cowboy, Bill Linderman said that Baby Doll knew bulldogging better than some of the cowboys who were riding her.  When she died at a Kansas Rodeo in 1960 from a ruptured spleen, Willard Combs had her shipped back to his ranch in Oklahoma to be buried.  Standing at the graveside, when she was laid to rest were many of the cowboys who had ridden her.   Baby Doll was inducted into the PRCA Hall of Fame in 1979 with their very first class of inductees and is remembered as one of the greatest Rodeo horses of all times.

Cowgirl Couture

If you want to be a cowgirl, get ready to live by a slightly different set of rules than many women.  Cowgirls do not let their estrogen levels rule their lives, they are not princesses in the sense of Paris Hilton, but they may be princesses in the sense of Rapunzel, because they still believe that there is wonder in the world and they want to share it with the people around them.  There is a long lost moiré of polite society that says a real woman is refined in the art of inclusion, of seeing that all of the people in the room are engaged in conversation, that nobody is going unnoticed, and a real woman would never put her own insecurity ahead of the welfare or comfort of others.  That may be the most important cowgirl trait there is, the one that can talk to the old, the young, the lovely and the unlovely and make them all feel welcome, and she is confident enough to talk to the most attractive woman in the room in the kindest and most gracious of manners.  Being a cowgirl means you understand that how someone feels about you after you leave is not nearly as important as how they feel about themselves.

A Fall Rain

Autumn

There is something about a fall rain that makes the mountains come alive.  The colors are richer~ the greens are greener, the browns are browner, the golds are golder.  The bark on the trees are a deep chocolate, the pine needles are washed and prefect forest green.  The grasses glow with a soft yellow that autumn brings to them and the silvery clouds seem to hold the color to the mountain side.

I love fall, I love the smells, colors, and textures.  It’s time to get the boots out for everyday wear.  It’s time to get the sweaters out for those cool evenings.  It’s time to get out the jackets with the fur on the collar for the extra bit of cozy.  It’s time to get out the scarves, one in every color of course, for those afternoon walks through town.

Fall evenings are filled with Grandma’s hand-made quilts and a cup of coffee.  Fall bring the warmth of a fire in the fireplace, the smell of ginger snap cookies in the oven, and the glow of a cozy fall evening in the mountains after the rain.

Cowgirl Smart

If it were entirely up to you there would be time for coffee every morning on the porch, the dog would be welcome in the Board Room and your children’s laughter would be the loudest noise you heard all day.  If it were your choice people would always be treated with respect and the longest part of the day would be the ride you take over the range as the sun is just beginning to go down.  Not everyone is asking your opinion but in the areas you control, you respond first with kindness, you give a little more than is expected, you make it a point to sit with the old man on the board walk to hear his stories about a long ago war.  You’ve never seen anything quite as beautiful as the darks eyes of your mare peeking out from under her mane, and you make a point of letting the people you love know that you do, and you’ve no plans of quitting.  You’re a cowgirl and it’s the little things that matter to you, because in the grand scheme of things they are all that you can count on.

Butternut Squash, Apple and Sage Soup

Nothing says fall like a pot of soup on the stove, and soup made with the best of autumn’s ingredients says it even louder.  This recipe puts it all together with ease and a dash of pizzazz.
Place 2 butternut squash (about 4 pounds), halved and seeded, in a 425˚ oven.  Sprinkle with 8-10 chopped sage leaves and salt and pepper, dot with 2 tablespoons butter and roast for 1 hour.  After cooling the squash scrape out the flesh and set aside.

In a large sauce pot heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and sauté one small chopped onion until tender.  Add squash, 4 cups chicken stock, 1 cup apple cider, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce, pinch nutmeg and ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes.  Season with salt and pepper and simmer for 30 minutes.

Puree cooked mixture in the pot with an immersion blender, or if you don’t have one, use a regular blender then return to the pot.  Reheat the soup and season with salt and pepper to taste, then just before serving stir in ½ cup heavy cream. Top individual servings with peeled, diced apple, or a dollop of sour cream.

This recipe serves 8 as a side dish with grilled German sausage over sautéed green cabbage and sliced red peppers.  Delicious comfort!
