  • Cowboy Poetry Week 2011: Our Contest Winner

    cowboy poetry penWe had some lovely entries for our Cowboy Poetry contest in honor of Cowboy Poetry Week 2011. The winning entry below resonated with us for a few reasons: its sparse, but precise language; its ability to capture a slice of life; and its cool little twist at the end, which serves as a nice juxtaposition to the title.

    The poet is Rowdy Yates (love that name!), a true cowboy who manages the Shooting Star Ranch in Montana with his wife Kristen. The couple has two boys, Cody and Colt, who ride broncs and bucs. Continue reading

    sunset with horseOur western landscape photo contest was such a hit, that we've decided to hold another contest this fall.

    The subject: something that's near and dear to so many people's hearts: horses.

    It could be your horse, a neighbor's horse, a horse (or two or more) that you saw on trip, and it can be from anywhere, really. We're looking for a shot that inspires, wows, makes us laugh, makes us smile, or plain just makes us stare at it for five minutes straight.  Continue reading

  • Western Landscape Photo Contest 2010

    sunset with horseAh, Mother Nature. Her artistry is unparalleled, especially when it comes to one of her favorite palettes: the American west.

    Close your eyes. C'mon. Go ahead. Now picture this: blazing orange sunsets. Cloudless blue sky. A pack of wild horses running. Cattle grazing. A solitary cactus blooming. A storm watch. A tornado. Dusk, captured on film. Early morning, steam rising from the earth. Starlit sky.

    You get the idea.

    So why am I going on like this? Well, we had so much fun with our last contest, we decided to run a new one: an American western landscape photo contest.  Continue reading

Glen is a former country real estate advertising writer and graphic artist. He's been writing for nearly 45 years and has had two free verse collections plus four cowboy poetry books published, including his newest: No One Knows Where the Longhorn GoesContinue reading
