Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: INFR congrats, scammers, 3 man stray gathering, jackpots, series, clinics
There’s been a little more moisture in the region. Of course, every drop is welcome unless you’re trying to get trucks in on dirt roads to ship cattle. Did anyone else think October went by terribly fast? It sure did for me!
The Indian National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas was well represented by our regional contestants. Congrats to Cole Elshere, Faith, S.D., on being named the World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider. Also, Miss Indian Rodeo is South Dakota’s own Miss Oglalla Lakota Nation, Tigh Livermont. Tigh is from Wanblee, S.D. and is a student at Casper College.
Online scammers are becoming more common. From hay sales to horse and pet sales, they are preying on people who buy sight unseen on social media and online sites. For example, you see a horse online that you really like, but, can’t go see in person. You watch videos, ask questions, and feeling informed, send money to hold the horse until you can go get it or send someone else to. Unfortunately, the whole horse sale ad is a hoax and was “stolen” off of a legitimate sale ad and used by a criminal to defraud you of your deposit, or worse, full payment. They’re hard to prosecute, so they keep repeating over and over. My advice, don’t buy horses or pets without looking at them yourself or sending a trusted representative.
