Glory be! About a half inch or more of rain arrived here last week. Areas around us got even more, and there’s more in the forecast today. Some brandings got postponed, but I don’t think anyone but maybe the cook minded.
In an effort to keep the rodeo business alive, there will be FREE bareback, saddle bronc, breakaway and tie down roping clinics in Cody, Wyo., in June and July.

With the grass coming on so fast from the recent rains, be watching out for founder in your horses. If they’re standing with their front feet out ahead of them or laying down a lot, get them off the grass, call your vet and give them some Bute immediately.
Have a great week and be sure and pray for our nation and for continued rains.
