Getting ready for the end of June run into the fourth of July. This weekend, we got few of us running in different directions across Arizona and the country.
Start off with the 232 Bulls heading to Seirra Vista Bull Team Challenge put on by Where they Buck, Wacey Barta. Looks to be a good time for sure, the bulls are looking good and need some exercise before the fourth of July run up north. The bulls will be in Show Low, Taylor and Springerville, not only will the contestants be looking to get out of the heat, but I’m sure the bulls will enjoy some cooler weather as well.
Shout out to one of our new members who joined the group in January Hunter Kelly for winning the Arizona High School Bull Riding State Championship last weekend. He went in leading the state, won the average and walked out #1 going into Nationals in July. He has proved hard work outside the arena pays off inside of the arena. We all will be rooting him on at Nationals to walk out a the National Champion, it will be good watching. He completed his first goal of winning the state title now he sets his sights a little higher to leave his mark. Good luck Hunter!
Shane cut out of the heat to head up north to rodeo in the cooler weather. Worked his way to South Dakota, Montana then over to the Oregon. He has a big run planned for end of June and over the 4th.
Carter hit the trail to the cowpunchers reunion in Williams this weekend to pick up in the ranch bronc riding. I believe himself and daughter will be entered in the team roping, looking to get buckle out of there together.
Chance has been playing a cowboy down at the bar boot helping out Kevin. He also has not missed any jack pots along the way. He had one of his good horses go down, this last weekend. Never good when having to put one down, he had run of bad luck there limped home on three trailer wheels cause a bearing burnt up and horse down. I would have to say he has better days. But he is ready to roll to rope over the fourth.
Maco and Kayleb new members to the group have hit a little of hot streak in the bull riding. They have been entering anywhere they buck bulls to get ready for the fourth of July run up north.
Brandon has been busy working, getting a few buckers here and there. He also has been busy getting things taken care of before he hits the road hard in a few weeks. Has a big run planned for the fourth with Britt, double up on enter fee’s to double up on winnings! I do believe they will have there pockets full when they head home.
Been a pretty quiet spring for us this year, but everyone is chomping at the bit to get on the road and rodeo. Hope everyone has a successful run this summer, winning fist full of dollars, keeping the western way of life alive! Until next time nod big for the win!
