It is getting close to that time!

~N**F**R~

SOOO excited for the 6th to get here!!

Alright sooooooooo who are you all rooting for in the Barrels?

I am of course rooting for team MAZ! I also am rooting for Mary Walker, I think she could come in an really smoke them and have a good feeling she is going to! Also Lindsay and Martha the epic amazing duo! And the one of the first timers Christy Loflin.

I don't really know who is in any of the other events, I will decide who I am rooting for there during the first night lol!

I'd have to say my favorite to watch run is Lindsay and Martha. I just love her wrap around turning style.

But I'm going to have to root for my Badlands girls: Lisa Lockhart and Nikki Steffes!!

Although, what amazing obstacles Mary Walker has overcome!!! Go girl.

And since I still think it was so stupid to change to the GAC channel (that I don't get .... grrr.... ) I will just have to wait until the next morning when someone posts it on Youtube!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

I am GLAD they switched it to GAC lol....now we actually get to watch ALL of the barrel racing and it is LIVE every night. Hated ESPNs coverage of it.....also got tired of watching Viagra commercials all night lol!

Always rooting for Trevor Brazile in everything he does, as well as Clayton Savage in bulls. Clif Cooper in tiedown. Also Russel Cardoza (Roper) since he's from Oregon.

Now for the barrels...

Brittany Pozzi definitely. I LOVE Duke. He reminds me of Ruger.

Carlee Pierce since she holds the record now, and she rides very well.

Brenda is a given, she's my home state and Jethro/Dora are both just the cutest things in person so I'm slightly bias.

Benette Little, I love the horses she has under her at the moment.

Lisa Lockhart, another one of my favorites, always incredible to watch.

Nikki Steffes, been watching her for awhile.

Lindsay is also kind of a given...I mean, it's Lindsay, and Martha. Come on.

I would say Sherry but everyone just assumes her and Stingray will do well.

Does that count as too many favorites?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I love me some Carlee Pierce.. I'd really like to see her do well. Sucks that she knocked one last night though, I think she's #4 in the world right now.. She's sitting Dillon out tonight and running her back up, Hammer.

She knocked TWO barrels, unfortunately. I was bummed to see that too, since they are the arena record holders!!

I'm really happy for Mary Walker's win. What a great way to start out her NFR after all she's been through!

I'm super sad Lindsay and Martha hit a barrel. They never hit one.

I hope my South Dakota badlands girls fare better tonight and place in the money!

Yikes! I had just heard one! Ugh.. I wasn't able to watch it last night and I'm not going to be able to tonight, driving back to Ga.. I'm anxious to hear how she'll do on Hammer. I haven't seen him run..

I think Mary Walker is amazing, she deserves to be up there on top.

Ladies....she went for the TRIPLE and GOT it! All 3 down...

I was super excited for Mary as well! As for Lindsay I think she should have went with Moe....because she hasn't ran Martha since Calgary when she had that nasty slip and got hurt.

I almost thought it was all 3 barrels, because she knicked the first barrel and it looked like it was going over, but the camera never had it in the picture so I couldn't see if it fell over until they showed her time.

I stayed up late to watch last night, because my husband pointed out to me a few days ago that we DO get the GAC channel!!!!! Probably won't stay up every night, which means DVR is amazing!!
