A Little Catching Up To Do

As you can see by how high the river is, we've had quite a bit of rain here lately. Can't complain but we're pretty wet right now.

As I promised a long time ago, here are some pics of the WRCA ranch rodeo our church put on back in September.

This is one where we were setting up for the church service and all the broncs were so nosy..they were turned out in the arena and coming up to find out what was going on.

Then we tone it down a bit for our Fall PlayDay we had a couple weeks ago. This was a blast! We had events from Lil' Britches on up to adults.

Here's a string of horses tied up waiting for the stickhorse race... this little buckaroo had to be real careful not to get too close for fear of getting kicked...

Dear sweet Bridget was a champ. I think she ended up with eight kids riding her....that's eight kids going through all the various events! But that's okay...she finally got to go to an arena other than riding the kids around on the farm. She's usually the one that gets left at home but this was her day.

This is the goat ribbon pulling where the little ones had to run and pull the ribbon off the goats tail. This was so much fun!

Yep, Cinch and Jess got to hang out at home...

Happy Trails...


  1. That looks like fun.I'm glad your church is using the opportunity to spread the gospel at these events. I'm also glad to get the opportunity to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Good to see a new post from you Berte. Looks like y'all had great fun at the rodeo. Was that Buddy on the bronc?

    I forgot how soothing your blog music is. I will have to tune in more often just to listen. Beautiful!

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  3. Well honey I am glad that you are OK!!! I missed you!! Great pictures. Really looks like it was a lot of fun too!! I love a good rodeo but I am sure it was better as a christian rodeo!!
