Regarding cowboy poet, Jessica Hedges:

"Jessica's obviously really, really talented. Her material floated to the top because of the quality of her presentation and her material."

~Charlie Seeman,Executive Director of the Western Folklife Center

"Jessica's ability to take a common, everyday experience, such as cooking dinner or doing laundry, and put a ranch life spin on it has made her poetry popular with both men and women alike. She has also drawn the attention of a younger crowd that is searching for a grounded lifestyle that is real in a fast-paced, computerized society."

~Jennifer Denison, Western Horseman

"When Jessica writes poetry about the buckaroo lifestyle she is writing from a firsthand knowledge of the things she has actually seen or experienced. This puts her apart from many other western poets that tend to glamorize or write about the way they 'think it was.' When you add this hands-on knowledge to her keen, observant eye and sensitive nature, you come up with a very unique individual that can write poetry that truly touches the souls of those of us who have lived it and also those that wish they could have."

~Mackey Hedges, author of Last Buckaroo and Shadow of the Wind

  • So proud of these guys today!!! This was Zeus' first official day as a cow dog! He made a 12+ mile circle in 80+ degree heat and never quit me. It may not sound like much but he started out his career with an injury a few months before he was set to go to work. This meant he didn't get the conditioning rides I had intended to help prepare him. Dogs are hard to start in this country because of a lack of smaller circles and the distance between water but we will make it work!

Slim Shady ended up over stepping and busting open an old wire cut injury. Even in the heat and with miles to go, he never weakened. You can not ask for more heart and try in a horse than I have found in this old grey!

  • Cows have to drink, even on Sundays!

While pushing cows yesterday, I came across a dry trough and a busted spring pipe. Today we got it fixed and Sam got acquainted with the ranch dozer. 
Tomorrow, back to riding!

  • I'm going to regret this in the morning. 
The entire house has gone to bed, which is a rarity. I've been hit with the inspiration to write, so this could become a long night. 
Someone please be prepared with coffee and a pep talk, reminding me why I need to help fix the spring tomorrow.
