Branding~had to get as many head branded in 2 minutes that you could! We got 2 done~almost 3!! You really find out how much your roper likes his ground crew! They had that you could either heel or neck catch the calves. Well, hubby heeled only, it makes it so much easier on the calf and your ground crew!
No rodeo would be complete without some face painting!!! They had a mock rodeo for the kiddos to do! Savannah had a blast! I came up into the stands to visit when we broke for the church service! What is that look I'm getting?!?!?! I really should have had him take a picture of how dirty I was!
At the line for the doctoring~you have to sort designated head out and then head and heel. Flank, take ropes off and mark there head, in 2 minutes.
Wild cow milking~you had one person horseback to rope and the other 3 on the ground. Everyone was saying they aren't going to be bad! They weren't until they realized they were roped! We got it done and I got milk! Once you took the rope off you better be moving, they were on the fight!

- I don't have a clean house! If you want that don't come here! Everyone is welcome, I spend way too much time outside to keep up the inside!
- I love all kinds of music!! Country, rock, christian, etc. My MP3 has a wide selection of music on it!
- I love to take pictures! I normally always have my camera with me!
- I do not color my hair~I even have gray hair!
- I love to cook and bake!
Well there you have 6 things about me! I think everyone has already been tagged, but if you have not please do it and leave me a comment so we all can stop by and see!
Also I have been given 2 awards and I keep forgetting to post them! I know I am a bad blogging friend!! Thanks to the ladies who passed this on, I truly have enjoyed blogging and all you great blogging buddies I have now! I would pass them on, but since I am so late, I think everyone has already gotten them already!

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.

We had our play day after church on Sunday. The events were obstacle course, barrels and the ring race. The obstacle course you had to open and close the gate, back through the panels, drag a log, do 2 jumps while loping in a circle, cross the bridge and go back through the gate. * Notice "Shelby" is going with me!~hubby said she did the whole course with me! LOL *
The ring race~you have a sword stick thing and there are 6 rings you are trying to get on there. I got 5 rings in 20 seconds~can't remember hubby's score~but I do know I bet him! :)
Then we had the barrels~notice how wide I am on the last barrel~well that isn't how we normally run it~I had lost one of the reins~I was fishing for it as we were coming home! LOL! We still got it done in 19 seconds! **That is the great thing about being mounted well~I trust her completely and know what she is going to do!!**
FYI: I will be posting pictures from the Extreme Race and the finals from this weekend as soon as I get them! There were a couple of ladies that took pictures and I am trying to round them up from them. I can't wait to see them myself!

4th of July we went to Bar None Cowboy Church for a play day, homemade ice cream, watermelon and fireworks! The events were barrels, poles, speed race, goat tying, calf scramble. They ended the night with a awesome fireworks display! We had a great time and I even brought home ribbons in all the events! Hope you all had a great and safe 4th of July!

Running poles! There would have been more pics, but hubby was about to break the camera-he was so frustrated with it! He said it wouldn't take pictures fast enough. He tells me after this run, okay you are going to have to slow down so I can get pics! What I say!!? And you see there are no more pics~I have a need for speed people! LOL! The next events were all about speed, so he knew I wasn't going to slow down, he put up the camera! Poor hubby!
