Outside Circle: Rescheduled events, college rodeo season, horse sales, clinics, series
That was a humdinger of a storm that hit parts of the region! My heart goes out to those still trying to dig out, those who were calving and lambing through it, and those trying to get from point A to point B. There was just a little rain and a few inches of snow here on the windy ridge, very welcome moisture, but no problems other than slippery roads. The drought remains at full strength in many areas.
There were, of course, some storm cancellations. The Warm-Up Rodeo at Torrington, Wyoming has been rescheduled to March 28. Call Jake Clark if you have questions at 307-534-6175.
