Faith’s Ranch Rodeo a success, despite the weather

The Faith Stock Show and Rodeo was jam packed with activities and events, and the Ranch Rodeo was popular with the ranch crowd.

Twenty teams tested their skills in two events; sort-and-doctor and team branding challenged both sorting and roping skills. Each team had one youth on the four-person team.

Sort-and-doctor required the team to sort out three numbered cattle, two heifers and one roping steer, from a bunch on the south end of the arena. The sort-outs were then penned on the northwest end of the arena with the roping steer sorted out. Once out of the pen, the steer had to be headed and heeled and tailed down, whereupon the designated “doctorer” put a chalk mark on the steer. While it sounds straight forward, the roping steers were hard to sort and the heifers didn’t want to be left behind in the small pen, resulting in a horse-race to beat them back to the bunch. Roles changed as it was “catch if you can” and everyone could take a shot. Because the smallest member of the team was usually dubbed “doctor,” and often ended up catching the heels of the steer, the scramble for the chalk added to the excitement.

The team branding showcased two teams working simultaneously in separate pens. There were two ropers on each team with the first roper being a youth. When the calf was roped and dragged out of the pen, the ground crew then tailed the calf over, the “brander” put the white powder “brand” on and the calf returned to the bunch. Time was called after the second calf was branded.

There was a third event on the schedule, but a thunderstorm blew in and only the first five teams had completed the event when the Ranch Rodeo was called off due to hurricane-force wind, hail and rain. Because not all teams competed in the third event, it was decided to just use the times from the first two events to determine the overall winners.

First place, with a time of 1.38 in the sort-and-doctor and 0.54 in the team branding, was the Clint Doll Team. Members of the team were Clint Doll, Tyrell Thybo, Tye Hotchkiss and Lane Schuelke.
