Our Trixie and Roxy Girls

Oh hey there!  It's me, you know the one who's going to blog consistently again...

This spring, we had two cow have twins and abandon one, within 24 hours of each other.
{For days, I was convinced that they were part of triplets...John Wayne and my Dad just looked at me like I was an idiot.}
That is how we got Trixie and Roxie.

Trixie and Roxy quickly became members, important members, of our little family.
We do absolutely love them both, but there's just something extra special about our little Trixie girl, she was HUNGRY and very eager for someone to bond with when John Wayne found her.

Tressie claimed Trixie.
And well, you know how this works, little brother got Roxy.

As the summer progressed, Trixie and Roxy turned into "show cattle."
We began prepping them for the county fair.
This project was loved equally by three of us.
And well, little brother, he'd participate occasionally, as often as his two-year-old attention span would allow.

Tressie on the other hand, complete natural.
And it made this Mama's heart burst to see her love something that was such a big part of my youth.


Bath time! 

Fair day finally got here!


Miss Tressie was pretty intense...and a little nervous : )

She totally rocked it in the show ring!
And well, GW and Roxy...they both cried.

I am SO proud of both my kiddos!
And my little Trixie and Roxy : )

Oh, and in case you're wondering, as far as I'm concerned, Trixie and Roxy can spend the rest of their days relaxing in the green grass, watching the kids play on their swing set!


We had family photos taken on the ranch this weekend.
I am thrilled that the talented Chelsea at Snap Happy Photos by Chelsea was able to capture this great image of T with Trixie and Roxy!
