Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Broncs, Bulls and Bibles camp, two man ranch rodeo, horse races, breakaway roping, SDRA finals
It’s sure been nice weather around here. Some rain has come and the temps are cooler, so there should be a little fall regrowth of grass. It makes getting that third cutting alfalfa put up a challenge, but it always is. I see lots of truck loads of hay moving and the fall run has begun on cattle. Fall is looming.
Speaking of green grass, if you have a horse, mule, burro, or pony that has foundered in the past, be watching them closely or, better yet, get them off that green regrowth. The cool nights and warm days make that grass particularly prone to foundering an equine that has already been foundered or is just overfat and cresty necked. Founder never goes away and gets worse with time. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, especially as there is no cure.
If you’re on a rodeo committee and are looking to add an event to your rodeo next year, the Women’s Ranch Bronc Championships is looking to add to it’s tour stops. If you’re interested, email WRBC@WomensRanchBronc.com
