My Favorite Spectator Sport... Cutting

My Favorite Spectator Sport... Cutting

I went with our friend Mckenzie (Dunning) Parkinson on the weekend to my first official cutting. Yes I know this is sad admission considering I have actually competed in AQHA cutting.  Of course I have always loved the sport and my minor attempts at it were always entertaining to say the least.  Yet my introduction to the cutting world was like being toured around by the equivalent of Drew Berrymore in the acting world.  Mckenzie Dunning the daughter of the famous cutting trainer Al Dunning has grown up with the world of cutting she is, in my eyes at least,...

How often do you wash your jeans?

How often do you wash your jeans?

This may seem like an odd question… I know that most of you cowboys will probably say several times a week, if not everyday. This does make sense, especially if you are coming in from a smelly cattle pen or have been laying sod all day. But, what about your good jeans.  The jeans you really care about, how often do you wash those? In a recent article where the CEO of Levi, Chip Bergh, was interviewed, he told us to NEVER wash our jeans! I know most of you are staring at your computer screen right now, jaws dropped,...

Manic Mondays... Launching a new website

Manic Mondays... Launching a new website

  So last week was the official launch of our new website. We put blood sweat and tears into making a user-friendly interactive community on our site. The smallest details were not overlooked.  We made videos of our jeans so you could get the most realistic feel of what they look like on.  We had our amazingly talented photographer, Antonija Klotz, take a different approach to product shots making them more stylistic. As well she did all of the amazing images that grace each page when we had our big photo shoot in March. So we have been agonizing over...

Favorite Fridays: Our 4 Favorite things about the 4th!

Favorite Fridays: Our 4 Favorite things about the 4th!

Friends: At Kimes Ranch we consider our friends our family. As I once heard it well put “Friends are family that you choose”.  We are strong believers in this and very grateful to have the close knit group of friends that we do. Dinner at the Ranch is never a small affair and rarely a planned formal occasion.  More like a come one come all bring what you want mentality.  We respect our friends so much that we jokingly make reference to our “group parenting”.  We are so often together that we do not hesitate to feed, cloth, or keep...

Crazy Corgi Lady

Crazy Corgi Lady

This is our first guest blogger.  Ruth Cloudt is the mother of Amanda Kimes.  Ruth has become known to many as “crazy corgi lady”, and she wears her title proudly.  Ruth takes her corgis to all the horse shows, and this is just a taste of life as the “crazy dog lady”. I love my corgis, and I love showing horses.  Corgis and horse shows just go hand in hand.  I have been known to travel to the horse shows with as many as five or six dogs in tow!  I wear the name “crazy corgi lady” with pride. Lets...

Manic Mondays…check out our office

Manic Mondays…check out our office

For a few weeks now we have been remodeling our office to create a more inspiring space. The gold fixtures, golf and Ansel Adams pictures are now replaced by enormous pictures from the Kimes Ranch Lifestyle shoot that we did in March with Antonija. I must say they look Ah-Mazing!!!! (not to mention that Amanda so nicely chose the picture of all of the boys leaning in the hood of the truck for me to look at all day… not a bad view)  We now have a collaborative open workspace that is sleek, clean and de-cluttered.  Not only did it...
