Outside Circle: Wind, jackpots, clinics, draft sale, barrels, Miss Rodeo Wyo info, geld those colts
Wow. That wind was sure something, wasn’t it? There were too many fires, too much grass and timber burned. I’m sure sorry for losses that folks experienced. Thanksfully, no human lives, but livestock were lost. It’s just too early in the year for fire danger to be this high. Please pray fervantly for rain.

Green grass will be coming on soon and you’ll be wanting to turn your yearlings out on grass I’m sure. This is a good time to get those stud colts gelded so they can get healed up and turned out with the big horses. Don’t forget, those yearling studs can definitely breed a mare or even one of the yearling fillies. Geldings make better citizens than stud colts too.
Well, that’s my circle for another week. I hope you had a very blessed and meaningful Easter. Pray for our nation, and of course, rain. Have a wonderful week!
