Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Indian Relays, horse sale, junior rodeos, open rodeos, ranch rodeos
I’m hearing reports of ample rain in some places that had forgotten how to fix watergaps, so that is a big blessing for all of those folks. In general, the grass is looking better, but here where I’m at, it didn’t rain much and then forgot how. As I look out midweek, the grass is starting to yellow and after the predicted 90 degree temps coming up, it will be done. At least it rained enough to make a little grass though. I’m sure happy for those who are finally having a good grass year, such as my cousins in eastern Colorado, friends in southwest Texas, and elsewhere.
Heads up for those traveling with horses and other livestock, they are really cracking down on Wyoming highways, particularly coming and going via Colorado. They are checking for current health, Coggins, and brand inspection papers and there’s up to $1000 fine if you get stopped without them. It’s always a good idea to have all that paperwork in hand, and the rules are there for a good reason.
