Saturday was a busy day we started off at a Invitational Pasture Roping and ended at a Barrel Race! This is the 2nd annual pasture roping they have had in honor of there boy's birthdays! It is always a great time and fellowship and food!!
Hubby's team won 1st place! Way to go Dickie, Lynn and Shannon! The big joke was the "geriatric" team won!
No birthday party would be complete without a good chaping! They got Micah first and then McCawley! McCawley was alittle smarter and saw it coming! *Barry Clower from RFD-TV was the judge and he was the one that did the chaping! If you haven't seen or heard him you are missing out, he is hysterical! Him, his wife and kids are such a blessing!*
Then we were off to the Barrel Race. I got 2 free exhibition runs, so I trotted the 1st and the 2nd I slow loped the pattern. The pattern was set real far back in the pen and tight, so I wanted to gauge my speed I would need. The 2nd run when I was going to the 3rd barrel I heard snap! I knew what had happened the snap on my right rein had just popped off! We finished the run and I stopped her at the end of the pen no problem at all. The gate guy was like you did that with 1 rein! LOL! She is a great mare I tell ya! Our run was clean and we placed 1 out of the money! When I ran the announcer said "Well lookie here she is running cans in a roping saddle, and by the way where did you get it?" LOL! My horse and one other were the only ones that didn't have tie downs on. I was proud of her run and we had a great time and supported a good cause.
