The Ranch Finale

Or Beauty and The Beast


When we last visited Beauty at Rawhide Ranch, she was just settling in to her first day of ice cream ranch life, and being a full time cowgirl. 

There were horseback riding jaunts down the dusty trail on her horse Foxy.


But.....there were also plenty of ranch chores to learn and perform.

Like feeding the ponys........


And then taking them for a walk, just like Grandma J walks JJ.

Learning how to vault and do other tricks in preparation for the Big Rodeo



All kinds of work goes into being a Rodeo Star



Beauty practices for the Big Rodeo on a real horse.


They say practice makes perfect....

TADA!!!


Beauty's hard work paid off with a second place ribbon!!  That's my cowgirl!!
