Another Day

The sun crested the ridge
Clean clear morning
Climb out of the bedroll, stretch
Good morning Roan!

Start the fire, strain the coffee, saddle up
Fence posts run as far as the eye can see
Another days ride, me and Roan
Another night on the hard ground
Thank you Lord for making me a cowboy

About Djinn Ruffner:

I live in Paso Robles, California on a small ranch - the 2 lazy 2.  We have Sissy and her 2 year old colt Buddy. I am an active member and representative of Friends of Rodeo, a national organization that educates the public on the TRUE treatment of rodeo stock. . . a worthy effort. 

My interests lie in trail riding, cattle work, team penning and just about any activities that keep me outdoors (camping, fishing, etc.)
