Ranch Life

Texas Ranch Life www.bluemesablog.com

You haven’t truly experienced Texas until you’ve experienced life on a Texas Ranch. About five years ago I lived on a ranch for six months. I woke up with the sunrise and went to bed with the stars. I lived in an old converted barn with a tin roof that echoed when it rained. I rode horses every day, swam in the river, and got chased by a herd of buffalo more than once. I ate vegetables out of the gardens, apples from the orchard, eggs from the chickens, and grilled a lot of steaks. I went out for long walks in the hills alone and broke in my first real pair of cowboy boots, which I bought for cheap at a local cowboy store. They’ve held up to this day. Next time you find yourself in such a place make sure you wake up before dawn, wear a hat, ride a horse everywhere, don’t get in the buffalo pen, and stay up to see the stars come out at night.
