This photo shows a lot. Leanne is taking her rope off of the dummy after her awesome rope. I aspire to rope like her. You see the flagger? He is super nice. He is riding his super nice horse that was given to him. That is a son of Petoboonsmal. That colt is three years old and so awesome. His name is Guapo. I rode him, and I love him, and I tried to buy him for 5 bucks, but for some reason his human would not take the deal. Then there is me. I am getting some last minute instructions on what to do. Just look at how natural I handle that rope! It's like a second nature!! Whuahahahaha!! Here I go......
I am defiantly awesome! I can't even get that rope over my head! Maybe I should practice more before I go out in public again. I lack in the form department. While I was roping this is what Little Cowpoke was doing.
Awe yes, life as a boy is just never quite complete without some dirt. Arena dirt is nice and clean right? Enough of roping and lets talk about Buttercup. She is our small pony mare that is crazy about barrel racing. We brought her along with us for me to ride on barrels and for Mr. Cowboy to ride on poles. But when we got there a little boy wanted to ride her. His name is D, well that is what I have been told to call him. He has a really long name that nobody pronounces right so we all call him D. D rode Buttercup in every event and did really well, despite his stirrups being too long. They even got a fourth place. Here they are doing the straight away barrel pattern.
She is a spunky pony. I have a hard time with her raising her head and then flipping her tongue over the bit. I need to have her teeth floated. But she did really well with D. I did hear that this past weekend at the rodeo D fell off of Buttercup when she turned too fast around a barrel. But he got back on and kept on riding. That Buttercup is a fireball. I think some work on balance and D will be back in business. Our next rodeo is in two weeks, so we will have some time to work on it.
Tomorrow I will try to have my beach pictures up. So, until next time, y'all come back now ya hear.
