Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Ranch rodeos, clinics, shows, mini broncs and bulls, ranch broncs, and county fairs

Well, that’s my circle for another week. It’s a little warm today and thunderstorms are brewing. It’s amazing to me the recovery this area made after the big hail storm in June. It has to encourage those who got hammered this past week in the region. Pray for rain for those who have had little, pray for our nation and may God bless America.
