My girlfriend lives in Kamas (just bought a place) so here shortly we're planning on me moving up there with her and her boys. My house right now is in WVC. If you know anyone on the Days of '47 rodeo committee, I'm friends with a gal named Connie Harmon that normally does all the food and stuff for the contestants.

Grew up around horses and ranching in New Mexico but since I moved to Utah haven't had any exposure to it really.... I'm really, really looking forward to getting back to that life and getting out of the rat race that is SLC.

Good luck! Anywhere would be better than WVC.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

Ha! That's no lie.... where I'm at isn't terrible.... but it sure isn't country. I came from a small town of about 300 people so for me moving to SLC was a culture shock and my girlfriend gives me hell for it but I tell her I'm city now because I have to be, not because its where I'm from. Can't wait to get back to cows, horses, clean air and good small town folks.

Where are you from anyway? Do you rope in the rodeos?

I live in Tremonton. I don't rope in rodeos... I'm a real cowboy. I ride for a cattlemans association in southern idaho (for about one more week then I'll need a winter job).

Ah gotcha.... wasn't aware there was that us and them line of thinking. I'm pretty new at this so hopefully I didn't offend you. I've got a ton to learn and will be using everything I learn in a practical application working with cattle on our own place as well as maybe trying some of the rodeo stuff since my girlfriends boys are big into roping as well. They're from MT and her boys roped a lot up there.

Not realy an us or them but a friendly rivalry. There are things that are different with each style. I have to say that you must be a pretty bright guy since you have a girlfriend that at least tolerates if not encourages roping and she has her own cattle and horses and will allow you to move in!

LOL... thanks. I'm glad she tolerates a newbie like me. Hopefully I justify her patience with me. I'm not afraid of hard work and have the will to succeed at this so come hell or high water, I'm going to make it work. She had a big place in MT but we're starting with just about ten acres and a few cattle for right now although we want more in the future for hay and running more cows. Hopefully those will be one of the things I rope here shortly. I have about a billion questions running through my mind so hopefully you ropin folks on here don't get sick of me asking.

Hmmm... I've pulled sagebrush and various bushes out of the ground, I've roped my dog, I tried to rope a bunny.... it was an interesting sight. Me and my rope horse high-tailin it down the stubble field after a bunny. I've roped my dad off of his horse, hmmm.... oh, and I've managed to rope myself. :P

Not exactly roping but I was in a drag race whereby I raced down the arena. The guy at the other end had a big aluminum grain shovel with a rope on it which he tossed it to me, I tied hard and fast while he put his bum in the shovel, legs coiled up the handle and we raced like mad for the finish line. We were also racing against 3 others doing the same thing. My cowboy's shovel tipped about halfway which I felt as the horse had to pull harder. He yelled at me to keep going. We won altho the sleeve on his shirt was in shreds and his arm well scratched. It was a blast. I thought he was nuts. Lol.
