Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Bull Ridings, Bronc riding, clinics and schools, OK steer wrestling jackpot

It’s been a beautiful weather week here in spite of some days of high wind. It finally rained a bit and the grass is sure trying to grow. More rain is in the forecast so am sure hoping it comes. Meanwhile, drought still hangs on with clenched teeth to many regions. Northeastern New Mexico is fighting a huge fire in the Las Vegas area. Many friends there have been evacuated, allowed back in and evacuated again. Many don’t know the status of their livestock or homes at this point. Over 300 homes have been lost in New Mexico fires, all in very rural small towns and ranch homes. As bad as the fire and horrendous winds have been, worse yet is that one of the major fires was started by a controlled burn on a day with a high wind warning, preceded by days of 70 mph winds. Tragic and criminal.

On a brighter note, the Sugar Bars Legacy Sale website has all the updates on the exciting changes to the two and three year old futurities on Sept. 17. You can find out more at http://www.sugarbarslegacy.com.
