Growing up in rural Ohio, I showed quarter horses in both the 4H and AQHA circuits and caught the horse bug quite young. After visiting a ranch in Colorado with my family at age 9, I knew that I would someday end up right back there. Fast forward many years later, ten days after graduating from college, I packed up my things and moved out to that very ranch, where I lived and worked for many years. Since then, I have lived in several states and currently reside in Western Missouri, where I am in the process of planning a future ranch of my own! Aside from ranching and the remodeling of my chicken coop, I also enjoy hiking, hazelnut coffee, antique shopping, and keeping up with both the cutting horse circuit and the western fashion world. To follow along my crazy journey into ranching or request any specific Crafty COWGIRL topics, you can find me @hashtagranchlife!
