The coo and the geegee are smiling, too, Elizabeth.

[Note: Wish Frank would assist the gal to write in English!]
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Horsey too!
Oh dear... What's wrong with my English... ???

Sorry, Elizabeth!

I am out of line! You are a USA person, and USA folks don't speak English. Of course you must say whatever you please, and in whatever language you choose.

The simplest way to Anglicise your sentence would be to replace the word "that" with "when". But then it wouldn't be USA-speak...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Of COURSE I don't speak English! Frank tells me all the time he can't understand my Americanese!!! And out west here, our language is even more colorful! smile

HA.... First of all I like to say this is an absolute wonderful picture again!!!!!
And now I like to dip in with your conversation about English and American... don't laugh I have a small dictionary English-American and American-English.
Of course you don't speak English.... Ginnie does not speak English either, the both of you speak American... and I speak a mix of both I think.
When Chris visited us, he told me that sometimes he had no clue what Ginnie was talking about, he said because of Shutterchance comments, Chris gets the gist of the words.
People don't realize that we have two languages here.
And to make it more easy... I sometimes translate my Dutch into English... that makes it even more 'understandable'.
Language, a complicated thing.
Sometimes Ginnie and I get lost in translation. I bet that is the same with Frank and you too.
OOPS, now it is almost time to go to work. Have a great day smile (or should I say good night to you grin)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Astrid!
It is pretty funny isn't it! I have thought many times about how you and Ginnie must get "lost in translation"... I love your explanation!
Have a wonderful day at work... I'll try to get a good nights' sleep, then it's off to work for me! smile
Man alive! She sure wears many hats. No wonder she's smiling (if she doesn't like one hat at any given moment, she can change it?) grin
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I wish I could say I know her well, but I'd only met her this day. I'm told she's just the neatest, kindest most wonderful lady- and I don't doubt that! I like your idea of her hats... especially given she's not wearing one right here! smile

A powerful, tough, modern looking lady - she could be yourself!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't you sweet Pauline! I am humbled to be compared to Duree Shiew!

The cow seems relatively un-preturbed
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Most of them were... They get released from the chute, and head directly for the gate at the other end of the arena. I think he knew she'd missed!
My fave of the series.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh I'm glad, Mary! Thanks!
This is a terrific series E.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Bill! Glad you're enjoying it!

Two countries separated by a common language, but you will win if only because the spell checker is in American. ;o)

Another successful roping!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile So true! And a very relevant argument! smile

Clearly enjoying herself Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: She sure was- a joy to watch!
This is my favourite so far Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Richard!!! I'm so glad!
Love the white spot colours here Elizabeth... It complements the picture very well
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes, I asked that steer if he wouldn't mind posing nicely for my photo! He obliged. Thank you!
Can't believe she's a grandmother. Love the level of energy you've caught in this one, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I know! Isn't she beautiful! Thanks Beverly!
These American Grandma's are something...smile Yet another fine shot, Elizabeth, I'm going to be under pressure if I get the chance to take some .
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Hee-hee! Thank you Frank! You know you'll do better than I. You at least THINK before you take a shot!

That chestnut is agitated about something (ears pinned back like that). My guess is that the horse is wary of the bovine type coming so near with those horns. A well trained horse won't shy ...

My, when one writes about coo and geegee's, the dichotomisation about "that" and "when" has me wondering? But then, we know that the kings of Oz hardly speaks English themselves. That said, he helped me a lot with English in the past. I am also not English, either by birth or in my home.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Actually, you'll notice almost all the horses in these shots have their ears turned back to listen for commands from their riders. These riders give verbal, not physical commands ( like leaning or squeezing with their legs), as they are constantly shifting and leaning in the saddle as they give chase and throw the rope, etc. These roping ponies are very well trained, so well that the riders often never have to give those verbal commands,

As for the English, you are very right there!!! We all seem to manage to communicate don't we?! smile
Good shot with a nice background. Duree seems very young for her years and that's an unusual namesmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you John! She is so beautiful isn't she! Yes- very unusual!
I am enjoying the debate about English and Americanese, very entertaining, but then I read endless James Patterson novels etc.and am used to decoding what is being said, but I do sometime get mixed up when various food dishes are mentioned. Anyway, after rambling on I really like yet another fine action shot, you have some brave ladies over there.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Frank and I go on about it all the time! It's funny that food mixes you up! I like your ramblings....
Thank you very much... it is the wild, wild west!

Another great action shot!

As for the language thing - Quinn often accuses me of making up words, and I have to tell her that I picked them up in my 30+ years in Scotland
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Anne!
That's so funny! I imagine 3 years in Scotland would be enough - don't mention 30! smile Where is Quinn from? I have to tell you - she's so cute, and she looks so much like someone else I know!
Frank and I spent the day riding donkeys on the beach lassoing seagulls.See what you have done now.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: HA!!!!! I'd love to see that!!!!! Quite an imagination you have!! Happy Anniversary, belated!
Lovely horse, too!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He is, isn't he!
