Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Bull riding, rodeos, series, series and more series

The recent rain has sure been a blessing. I hear this morning that some areas of Texas finally got some rain as well. I sure hope New Mexico is next as they are still on fire there. My heart aches for them. My rancher friends in that area are in dire straits with no grass and can’t go to the permits and land in the fire zones.

Tickets are on sale now for the November WRCA Ranch Rodeo finals.
