Apre un nuovo museo del West a San Antonio, un video sui Comanche di oggi da vedere

There is also a little place in Italy where we’ve been working for almost 25 years to honor and to protect the history of the Comanche nation within the history of the USA. Nemenuh were the horse people, we do our best to walk our path in a similar way. If we can suggest one thing: do more to remind the Comanche way to work with horses. Take care. In questo post potete ascoltare una rappresentante dei Comanche parlare del suo popolo in occasione dell’apertura di un nuovo museo del West: nel nostro piccolo, salutandola, le abbiamo suggerito di fare di più per tramandare lo spirito e i modi in cui i Comanche, i migliori cavalieri del West, vivevano in simbiosi con i cavalli.

A new Western art museum has opened in San Antonio, Texas. The Briscoe Western Art Museum had its grand opening in late October and is named for former Texas governor Dolph Briscoe, Jr. Briscoe and his wife, Janey, who were strong supporters of Western art.

The $32 million new museum currently has approximately 700 objects on display. Reflecting its stated mission to preserve and interpret the art, history, and culture of the American West, the museum houses artifacts and art ranging from the very last saddle of the Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa to painting by Maynard Dixon.

The Briscoe Western Art Museum also reaches back in time prior to Anglo-cowboy culture to recognize the histories and cultures of the Indigenous, Spanish and Mexican people who predate the formal organization of Texas as first a republic and then a state. The following news clip gives further background on the museum’s…

I pancakes di Sacha, ecco che cosa vi perdete a non dormire al Ranch!

Quando lo chiamiamo Bed & Brunch, ci sarà un motivo, o no?

Quando lo chiamiamo Bed & Brunch, ci sarà un motivo, o no?

English Abstract at the End of the Post

La prova di che cosa sia la prima colazione nel Bed & Brunch di Rancho Comancho l’abbiamo dovuta rubare da Face Boook (dove adesso si ripeterà in automatico), perchè così succede, a volte, in famiglia… Ma non potevamo non rimettere a disposizione del mondo intero la consapevolezza di quanto si perde che non si ferma anche a dormire da noi.

Questa edlla foto sopra, poi, è la dose della sola Lupetta: per gli amici di solito esagera e ne fa di più, molti di più… Le informazioni su costi e camere le trovate qui: per i soci e i cavalieri (di qualsiasi sesso ed età) che volessero avere delle offerte personalizzate bipedi/quadrupedi, compilate il modulo piùi n basso. Grazie e a presto!

This is just a taste of the usual Brunch in Rancho Comancho: It’s Sacha’s early morning serving. She cooks much more of them for our guests. One of the many reasons to come in our place for more than one day. Special offers for riders with their own horses. For info, fill the form. See you soon!

Sunday Column: My name

Well, for an Italian ranch now run by a young wolfie like Sacha, the old one thinks this site and this kind of news are absolutely needed (and the farm is called Daughters of the Wolf, even better and we have a Jessica here too, right in the picture at the bottom). Thank you Jessie, if you’ll ever be in Italy, here we are home too! Una bella persona, delle belle foto, della bella musica e pure dei bellissimi cavalli… Impossibile non stabilire un nesso, con tutte queste cowgirls (e avendo una Jessica con noi (qui sotto, a destra, sul suo Macho).

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Jessie Veeder
I tried to change my name to Stephanie when I was in kindergarten. A little boy named August raised his hand during sharing hour and asked to be called Gus, and, well, I thought that meant in kindergarten we got to change our names. So I raised my hand and declared that everyone must now call me Stephanie.

My sweet teacher looked at me, no doubt trying to stifle her laughter at the little weirdo before her, and calmly declared she thought Jessica was a nice name and I should keep it.

I was bummed. This was the 80s after all and Stephanie was the name of my favorite character on Full House. But I carried on as Jessica until second grade when we moved to the ranch and, struck with a sudden urge to shorten things up, I introduced myself to my new country school classmates as Jessie.

Everyone…

The Winter Cowboy

Beautiful picture… We know pretty well what are you talking about as you can see from the few of our place we added on the reblogging. Snow seasons are back in Italy and allover the world: maybe General Winter didin’t heard about Al Gore’s rants.

IMG_0366_1We’re getting ready for the new white coming and our horses and friends too. Come visit us!

Questa bella foto in apertura ha vinto un tot di premi internazionali e ci dà la scusa per pubblicare alcune delle nostre, riguardanti gli inverni scorsi, IMG_0359_1sempre più freddi e incuranti dei ragli di Al Gore. Sue Thomson, l’autrice dello scatto, ha colto il cowboy in questione nel bel mezzo delle Black Hills, le colline sacre, nel Nord Est del Wyoming.

Early one cold winter morning, five cowboys saddled up and rode out into the snow covered fields of the Black Hills of Northeastern Wyoming.
It is not often that a young Aussie lass, that would be me, has the chance to have real cowboys at her beck and call and shoot images. Not even a temperature of minus 30 degrees and a howling wind, could dampen my excitement.
After shooting for a while, I asked Tommy to go into the forest and then weave back out through the trees towards me. His horse spooked, he crashed through some branches, he cussed, he cussed very loudly, the snow dropped on to his hat…..and that was the shot I was after!
This image has won a number of international awards, including a Silver Award in the 2012 International Loupe Awards.
