This week has been kind of busy. Mostly with farm visits and my roping. I was up Friday twice, Saturday twice and Sunday once. Then Monday I was so tired I couldn’t get much done but the farm visits kept on coming.
Friday I was up at Cavalcade. I did my Calf Roping in the morning and my Team roping run in the evening. My morning run won me the long go in the calf roping. For my Team roping my header missed and I never got to throw my rope. It is okay though my header was young and he had been there camping all week and going to the lake swimming. I think he was just plain tired.
Saturday we had farm visits and reading program in the morning. That afternoon I sorted all the lambs and penned them off so they can be weaned. Even with all that going on I still had plenty of time to make two rodeos. The first rodeo was at Slick and I was up during the evening performance. I managed to win the calf roping event there, however I left before I knew that and headed to rope in the slack of another rodeo in Turley. In the second rodeo I didn’t do any good. Honestly, I should have skipped it but for some reason I felt I needed to try and make that one too. The issue wasn’t so much that I didn’t do any good but it was more that I didn’t get home until after 4am and I had to take care of my horse and get a shower so I didn’t get in bed until 5am and I had to be up by 8am for the short go at Cavalcade Sunday morning.
By the time I got there Sunday morning I was pretty sure I wasn’t up to it. I posted a video on Facebook but can’t figure out how to post it from there to here. I will tell you now that I face planted my dismount and roped the calf by a back leg. Nope it wasn’t a pretty site. Don’t worry I didn’t wound anything but my pride and if I was going to miss that was the rodeo to do it at. Besides I am sure that someone needed to see me fail for some reason … It was all God’s plan.
I spent the rest of my free time getting my intro for my patreon Acct made and Storm’s adoption video done. You can check both of those out and let me know what you think!
