Rescuing Star




                                                          Rescuing Star





An opportunity presented itself, and we adopted an abused Arabian horse.  His name is Star, and he has and injured hip and drags his left hind leg.  The vet and the farrier are on the way, and I will be giving you updates on his progress.  I'm also planning a video of his story.  Here he is meeting Wilson.  Star is on the right side of the corral panel, he looks a lot like Wilson, and has a dear personality.

I'm very hopeful we can help him, even if I can't repair his leg, he will have a safe and happy home with us.

My Front Porch Friend




My front porch friend


This is the fellow who keeps eating my roses. When I sit on the porch near him he behaves, until I'm not looking, then he eats my flowers. I keep asking him to refrain from munching the blooms, but he is a cheeky guy!

The Great Greenhouse Tomato Takeover!




The Great Greenhouse Tomato Takeover!




I’m still taking advantage of every moment outside.  While I continue to struggle with the outdoor flowers, my plants in the greenhouse are thriving!  I have a tomato plant that is simply huge.  In this video, I will share why I think my green house was successful this year, plus a few facts you may be surprised to learn.

Our Labor Day- Labor of Love



Our Labor Day- Labor of Love

This front entry sign for our homestead is the result of our efforts this past Labor Day weekend. We designed, constructed and installed it. It was a labor of love and had been on our "to do" list for several years. I'm sure it will end up as a chapter in one of my books because we had some really funny experiences working on it. (It's heavier than it looks) 😉
In the past, my home was wherever life sent me, and that didn't change when I became a military wife and had a family. We lived in various houses and did our best to be happy. Now, for the first time, I have a home in the mountains of Montana. We call it Cimarron.

Nancy Quinn's Western Zen


Nancy Quinn's Western Zen


These are some inspirational thoughts I use to help myself. The landscapes here on the mountain are so lovely and uplifting, they often put me in a reflective mood.  I can always use a few extra moments of peace, and a deep relaxing breath.  I hope this video brings you the same kind of feelings.  I believe it's is another gift from Montana, and our life in the modern wild west.

Mercurial Mother Nature, Summer Hail Storm



The Summer Storm


I had to wonder, What the "hail" is this? I listened to the crashing and banging sounds on the roof our home. The frozen ice chunks fell viciously from the sky to the ground.



I was worried about the horses, they ran into the tree line instead of seeking shelter in the barn. When they emerged, they were covered with ice, but unharmed.


                                      


This is how much ice accumulated on the ground after the storm was over.  It was just another summer day in Montana.

The breathtaking Sunsets of Montana.


The Montana Skies



Visit our Montana mountain homestead, and view the gorgeous sunsets from our front porch.  Every night, I look to the sky for the ever-changing glorious patterns of light and shadow. Take 2 minutes, a deep breath, and enjoy these color drenched skies.

Cimarron is the name of the home featured in my books, "Go West, Young Woman!" and "Stay West, Young Woman!".

If you enjoyed this video, I suggest you watch Ep: 5 "Montana Sunsets" on my YouTube channel, Nancy Quinn-Life in the Wild West.
