Mirror KB's Twin Wranglers

We, Kim and Kari, are the Twin Wranglers - identical twin sisters. In our younger years telling us apart was a bit more difficult than it is now...the years have some how "creased" us differently. Still we look quite a bit a like. However, there are differences that did exist right from day one. Kim - the A twin is right handed, Kari - B twin is left handed, or more accurately, ambidextrous. For this reason we have always considered ourselves Mirror Image Twins and thus giving rise to our ranch name "Mirror KB".

Twin-ship is one of the closest partnerships that exists in the world. For us this means a lifelong collaboration of identical interests (horses and the love of all animals, photography, horses, ranchin', the old west, nature, and more horses).

We've been ridin' horses since we were no bigger 'n a couple of hay seeds. When we were 9 years old we finally managed to coerce our parents into gettin' us our first horse. Up until that point we rode our best friend's horses and have to admit that we had some pretty amazin' spills.  But we survived, and after we got our first horse we soon found that just one horse wasn't good enough.  We had to have more which led to us gettin' a second mount the followin' year and that led to a third and fourth horse, and so on. After many years of breeding Appaloosas, we no longer raise horses but we still ride and have 9 head in our remuda....and to this day we can't resist pickin' up a rope if there's  a horse attached to the other end of it.

Though it's been quite awhile since we've entered the show arena, in the past we've successfully campaigned our horses in the show ring...including qualifying two of our mares (Tacita Trio & MKB Roamin' Echo) to the Appaloosa World Championship Show.

Ranch work keeps us busier than a horse's tail in fly season! Though we're a might short for tall and notably slight on brawn, we take on all of the ranch chores ourselves. Besides training the young horses, and providing general horse care - including minor veterinary attention, we also take care of trimming hooves.  Keep in mind, that's usually around 56 hoofs!

If you enjoy trail riding or just lookin' at pictures of horses and beautiful country then rein your mount down this side trail.

 

Now, don't think that all we do is horse 'round. It may be close to the truth, but we do tend to regular feedin' chores as well as ridin' ranch fences, cuttin' lodgepole fence rails, puttin' hay in the barn, and stockin' up on each winter's supply of firewood does one heck of a job keepin' us from wearin' out our saddles.

Unfortunately ranching isn't really all to productive and we seem to have perpetual holes in our pockets.  So, we manage to supplement the lack of cash flow with our cameras and by authoring equine related articles.  Our photos, and often our articles, are regularly published in magazines such as: Horse Illustrated,  Horses USA, Quarter Horses USA, The Horse, Hobby Farms, The Blood Horse and Equus.  Our work has also appeared in, Performance Horse, Pegasus Equine Express, Montana Horseman's Journal, Stable Kids, The Horseman's Guide, The Texas Thoroughbred, Horse & Rider, Equine Athlete, The Western Horse, Western Horseman, Cat Fancy, Cats Magazine, The Morris Report and International Photographer.

Our original photographic double image montages are exhibited in fine art shows across the country. Below is a small sampling of shows and awards:
