Cowboy Stampede

 

Out on the range, when there’s nothing to answer but the call of the wild, and the only clock you have is shining overhead, things seem to make sense.  The little things start to matter more and all the other stuff kind of gets lost in the dust.


A Stitch in Time

In 1873, immigrants David Jacobs and Levi Strauss, combined their talents and resources and came up with a new phenomenon, called Waist Overhalls, more commonly known as jeans.  From this first creation of denim thread and metal rivets, the single most popular clothing item in the history the world has taken shape, and variations are endless.  Brilliant because of their durability and style, practical because they last forever and get the job done, jeans are synonymous with hard work and high fashion all at the same time.  When women finally started wearing “trousers” in the forties and then “slacks” in the fifties, a proper pair of women’s jeans weren’t far behind.  Cowgirl Tough Jeans have taken the jean world by storm, doing their well-fitting best to make women’s legs look longer, behinds firmer, and all with a sense of wild west chic.  Pine Country Feed has the good sense to carry a product that goes so far in making women’s fashion about comfort, style and ease of care.  Proud to carry the Cowgirl Tough brand, Pine Country is the place you’ll find a treasure around every corner.

Behold the Horse

Hollywood loves horses, in every form.  They love the horse that can win a race, or the horse that stands by his man until the last shot is fired.  They have given us talking horses, horses that fly, singing and dancing horses, carousel horses and horses that have broken our hearts.  They are the favorite means of transportation in an entire genre of movies, and most of the favorite film stars of the forties, fifties and sixties ended up on a horse at one time or another.   Horses are back in style on the silver screen with westerns making a come-back over the last fifteen years.  Today’s westerns are more violent and the main characters never bathe, but one thing is consistent with the early western.  The best friend of the cowboy, rancher, farmer, or settler is still the horse.  The west simply wouldn’t have been settled without them.  The four legged beasts are beautiful, noble, intelligent, usually gentle pictures of the soul of an era that was misbehaved, poorly planned and truly brutal.  When everyone else was spitting, drinking too much, gun fighting in the streets, the horse brought a grace and sureness to America’s wild picture of the west that makes us love them.  They are the spirit of what we wish we could be; strong, sleek, peaceful.  And they do talk by the way – you just have to listen really carefully.


Missing the Wild

So we have recently found the choices for big cinema entertainment wanting, and we have finally put our finger on the problem.  The movies tend to parade leading men across the screen who obviously spend a good portion of their time in the gym, not necessarily bad. But we are bothered by the fact that only a small handful of the real leaders could manage a ride on a horse.  They simply wouldn’t look right astride one of the glorious equines of the Hollywood 40s and 50s and we can’t even imagine most of them being able to get on the horse without major injury.  Cowboy movies, the real westerns that put the country west of the Mississippi on the map, needed men to be rugged, not fit necessarily, but tough, and since the horse has been removed as one of Hollywood’s main characters, that element of grit, of rock solid, take no prisoners, don’t make me pull my six shooter persona has faded to black.  There have been a few westerns in the past decade that have proven that there are a few of those boys left, but too few to our liking. Somehow being able to download the secrets of the defense department before the guy in the suit walks into the room just doesn’t give off the same aura as a man who can control his horse with the reigns in his teeth, riding at the speed of locomotion, while he wields both of his guns with the accuracy of a sharpshooter.  Imagine.


Big Deal

Halloween is the day to make contact with you inner ghoul – the side of you that would prefer to be mysterious, and hide behind a mask of intrigue.  We have to take our hats off to Martha Stewart who has perfected the art of ghostly retreat, greeting the holiday in the most elaborate way possible.  Martha’s life isn’t a possibility in the real world, where you have to function within a budget, and your staff consists of your husband and your cat, but Martha forces us to look at life differently.  She insists that we celebrate the everyday, that we go the extra trouble, that we make life a celebration, and she is never more Martha than on Halloween.  Martha Stewart understands that there are times when the most important thing you can do is enjoy the art of living and she shows us just how to do it with style.  We can take a lesson from Martha, who has become wealthy teaching people how to properly fold a bed sheet.  Sometimes, despite the mayhem around us, life is very simply and exquisitely about the fun.
