A GREAT DAY!!!

2nd place-hay bag & 4th place was the necklaceWell it was a great day! I went to a Women's Sorting at Rim Rock Cowboy Church and had a great time! I took "Preacher" and we did awesome! He is a sortin machine! (or as hubby calls him his secret weapon!) There were 3 teams to come back for a run off for 2nd and I wish I had given the camera to someone to capture him working. Man-he is just awesome, sitting and cutting! One thing I can say when he is working cattle you better be sitting in the middle of his back or he will smooth cut out from under ya! I took my camera but left it in the truck! UGH!!! We placed 2nd & 4th and brought home a hay bag and a cool necklace. Way to go "Preacher", thanks for a great time!

Congratulations!! That necklace is beautiful. All of your hard work is really paying off.
It is so much fun being on a horse that does things naturally and really, really well.

I know the feeling with the camera. You want to get some great shots, but in the heat of competition, that is the last thing on your mind.

Terrific! And don't you know, it's kinda fitting for Preacher to do some winning at a Cowboy Church event!

Hey, I was just reading your comment on my blog and your state is huge into Shooting Sports. The program is always looking for instructors....we are all volunteers but certified. Maybe you should consider being an instructor...we shoot with the kids occassionally. You would probably have fun with the program.
