Cowboy Stampede

cowgirl boutiqueOut 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.  Taking stock of what we care about, what makes us say “this was worth it” has a lot to do with why we own Pine Country FeedWe care about giving people what they came for, meeting needs and alleviating frustrations, helping people create a life in a place they love, and giving them the service they deserve in the midst of a world where nobody has the time.  We love living in the mountains, we love the smell of horses and worn leather gloves, and we love our customers, people who have made the choice to put in the work to have what some people couldn’t begin to imagine.  Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives and thank you more for being part of ours!


Sitting Pretty

There is no under selling the importance of the right saddle.  In the great Westerns there is almost always a scene where the cowboy pulls the saddle off of his trusted steed, plunks it down by the fire, where he proceeds to make it the crowning point of his bed for the night.  He’s ridden on this tailored piece of worn in leather all day and now, with his hat pulled down over his eyes, the saddle has become his pillow, and he appears perfectly content.  The lesson here is simple.  You can’t mess with the saddle.   You have to get the right one, the best quality, it should be attractive, but the leather has to be a work of art, soft and tough at the same time.  Of all the leather things in life for which counterfeits have been made-shoes, easy chairs, coats, handbags, watch bands – nobody has ever been foolish enough to try to counterfeit the saddle.  It has to be leather, the best kind of leather, and it has to be saddle leather, softened with saddle soap and tooled to perfection.  An exceptional saddle is what you want, and exceptional saddles are what Pine Country Feed has.  Drop in for a browse then get ready to ride.  It will be the ride of your life!

As Far as the Eye Can See

There is a place in your house where nearly every person who enters your home will at least see, and many of them will spend some time, and that is the bathroom.  Don’t let your bathroom be an afterthought in relationship to the rest of the rooms by filling it with nothing but towels and toilet paper.  Let the theme of your household décor carry over to this probably smallest, but most important of rooms.  Tie in your rustic chic with a wiry beaded garland over the mirror with rusted iron stars intermingled amongst the twists and turns.  Switch plates, soap dishes, towel racks and hooks for jackets or bath robes come in a variety of themed fashions that can dress your room in everything from wrought iron twigs to horseshoes.  Why not stuff a basket with fluffy towels and a fringed leather pillow, and don’t forget the lighting.  Shades trimmed out in leather laces, or embedded with malachite and jet will bring the flair to the room that you’re looking for.  Tooled leather, pounded tin, rough hewn wood – all textures that can serve as art on the walls.  An interesting distraction can be the perfect touch in a small room, and perhaps exactly what the doctor ordered.
