A bunch of photos of todays rodeo and a shot of New Zealands favourite pass time kids chasing sheep. The object is the get one of the coloured flags and collect a prize

A number of cowboys did not last the ride Horse score 1 cowboy zip

A sad moment the downed horse did not get up again and for those that think rodeo is cruel, the horse died of a heart attack and we all know the chances of surving a heart attack are not great. The horse was carried by the cowboys from the arena. Very fitting I thought and respectful towards the horse.
awe so sad the horse did not make is
Was it a bucking horse or was it one of the cowboys horse
But accidents do happen

We kept a fly mask on him in the summer to shade his eyes. He lived to be 36. Knowing what I do now though, I would never buy a grey horse.
My JR terrier had a detatched lense in his eye that passed through the pupil. Then he contracted glaucoma and we had to have the eye removed. I medicate the other eye every night to keep the same thing from happenning but he is losing the sight in that eye too. He is five years old. We raised JR's for years and was never aware that this problem is congenital. We never had a problem. Bo and I have become closer since he lost his eye. He is my constant companion. He is canine glue. He sleeps pressed against my side at night. If he is not at my feet here in the office he comes in periodically to check up on me. At night we share my recliner and watch t.v. Together. Often, he is draped across my lap or has his head nestled against my neck. I am Lucky that my wife is so tolerant.
I have two cats that try and share the recliner with me then they start to fight. Its me that bleeds so now all cats on the floor. Lucky horses don't try and get to close. Sorry to hear about your dog.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

It was a bucking horse but came out without a rider. Run around some what then just hit a gate and went down. Vets were on hand at the time. I would say it displayed some problem and was let out of the shute but at that time no one would have gussed what was wrong. Reminds me of why we spend so much time trying to keep our trekking horses fit. Speaking of fitness. Time I took my heart for a walk, and then a ride on Bugs before the sun gets up and starts to cook us.

Hi everyone, does anyone collect 'painted ponies'? I have quite a few and it would be fun to compare collections with others.
Today is a bit cooler 84 degrees'but we have a strong wind which is blowing all the dust around.

Fahntasia,
Well, the weather guessers were partly right and partly wrong. We did get the extreme cold, the high winds, and some snow, but not the 6 to 10 inches of snow they had predicted. We got maybe 3 inches.
We had a drought year last year with almost no snow, so we could actually really use a bunch this year. I am worrying about the lack of moisture as the pastures need it.
Couple years ago we had record snows and then record springtime flooding. Minot, ND, got flooded badly. My nephew lost his home up there, as did hundreds of others.
North Dakota, extremes in both directions!

Hunter, glad you are getting on your horse!
Good jokes!
Sorry for your losses. :(

Pony gal, I laughed out loud. :)

Country Woman, healing hugs to you, lady.

Critter Sitter, so sorry for your loss. :(

Stan, awesome rodeo pictures. Awesome!

Ladytrails,
Sounds like fun herding sheep on horseback! Bree sounds like a great dog.

Howdy Sunset!

Eliduc,
Your Jack Russell sounds like a sweetheart.
My daughter moved back home recently, and brought along my granddog. Kylie is half Australian Shepherd, and half mini Poodle. Sweet little dog, and she is my shadow. She greets me loudly when I come home from work and also sleeps against my side.

Caco, Celeste....howdy! Anyone that I missed, howdy!
