Although Mother's Day has come and gone, we have been busy this month tipping our hats to ranch moms. We kicked off the month of May with a photo contest, asking each of you to submit your favorite photo of your mom, sister, grandma or other special woman in your life. I really enjoyed reading all the testimonies you sent to pay tribute to your moms. Each one was touching and heartfelt, and elevated my excitement level even more about the arrival of my own baby in the coming month.

We have selected our top 10 photographs from our "Ranch Moms" photo contest. Congratulations to our finalists: Patti Trabon, James Terry Johnson, Marlyse Cunningham, Brian Galloway, Christopher Dalley, Nicole Kerstetter, Larry Meadows, Stan Esplin, Stuart Fitzgerald and Rick Howard.
Now we need your help in selecting our champions! The photographer receiving the most votes wins a $100 Beef Bucks VISA card, while two honorable mentions will each take home a $50 Beef Bucks VISA card.
In addition, two voters will be randomly selected to win prizes as well. To these winners, we'll give a copy of “The Western Horse” or “Dude Ranches of the American West.” Both of these beautiful photo books feature the stunning camera work of western photographer David R. Stoecklein.
Voting closes at noon on Friday, May 16. To vote, simply leave the name or the number of the photo in the comments section of the finalists photo gallery. And if you want to be included in the drawing, One last tip: don’t vote as “anonymous” because we can’t include you in the raffle without an identifier.
Good luck and thanks to everyone who participated! And I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day weekend!
