Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood Rodeo: Rodeo series, ranch rodeos, Indian relays, clinics, grass founder

There’s been some much needed rain in this area and it’s sure amazing what the grass can do with a bit of water. Much of our ranch and farm country still needs moisture in a big way, but at least we know the sky can still rain.

Watch out for grass founder folks! I’ve heard of some horses succumbing to it. This fresh green grass and cool mornings sets the stage for founder. If you see your horse laying down when nothing else is, standing with the forefeet extended, or just acting “off”, get them off that grass, give them some Bute and call your vet.

Well, that’s my circle for this week. Pray for continuing rain, and for our nation. God bless America!
