Ranch Sorting, H.S. Rodeo, horse sale deadline, women’s ranch bronc school, clinics
There’s been another little dribble of snow, which at least dampened the ground. This whole region needs moisture desperately and spring storms are the biggest moisture makers there are. We can hope, even as grim as a storm is during calving and lambing, that the wet snow of March and April will come in abundance.

If you wonder why I promote all these schools and clinics, here’s why. Experience and knowledge is expensive if you get it all by trial and error and hauling down the road and paying entry fees. These clinics are such a valuable tool to increase knowledge and preparing a competitor to be able to enter competition. I really encourage parents to get their kids into these schools before they get set in an array of bad habits. It gets them off to the right start, whether roping, bull riding, or barrels, and in the long run, saves money and hide.
Well, that’s my circle for another week. Please pray for our nation! God Bless America!
