The Spirit of the American Cowgirl Is Alive.......
In a past blog post, I wrote about a popular poem called "When I am an Old Horsewoman" written by Patty Barnhart.
Patty is a true American Cowgirl, riding and working the land on her Guest Ranch, Willow Springs . The ranch is run "off the grid", they have propane, solar energy and a wind generator. They even have campfires with good old dutch oven fare.!!
With this poem, I posted a photo of a "Cowgirl" that suited the poem. The photo was chosen from the internet.....it is a great photo that captured the spirit of the poem (see the pic above).
Well I know why..the photo is of Connie Reeves another true American Cowgirl. I just recently learned that there is a movie being produced about her.....
