Author & Beauty Queen ANGELA BREIDENBACH: A COUNTRY GAL AT HEART

God's country
Angela Breidenbach loves country living. She considers her home of Missoula, Montana, as God's country. She sent us photos for this Country Life Captions feature. 

See her horses, the view from her office, her adorable toddler grandson, and she uses her barn for a pinata party!


Chief & Spanky

KING OF THE HILL

Winter snows don't stop the games with our two horses, Chief, the standard sized Morgan/Pinto cross, and Spanky, the miniature class B. Spanky loves standing on the hill in the pasture and lording over his domain. Chief and Spanky will often play King of the Hill, tossing their heads and galloping around showing who is king. Spanky ends up back on the hill every time.


Office View. . .Miss Piggy
COLORS OF THE COUNTRY 

The view out my upstairs office window. It's good to work from home as a writer with these views! This is early October last year (2009) with Miss Piggy. She passed away a year ago Christmas week from a fall on the ice. I keep this photo as a beautiful memory of her. The magpies land on our horses backs all the time. They hitch a ride all over the pasture.


BIG YARD, LITTLE GUY


We've got lots of hoses to move. Our grandson takes on this task. The horses look on from the pasture as he mimics grandpa. I love watching him play outside and discover all the amazing things toddlers find. It reminds me of the joy of life.


BATTER, BATTER, BATTER--SWING!


Creative uses for barns...pinatas at parties!
My daughter, Mariah, was overseas in Thailand for 10 months. I loved my son's playfulness with the pinata. He'd lift it every time she swung the bat. It was the perfect way to bring her home since they all played so much in the barn growing up. Lots of laughter!
