First off I must mention my goal for this year is to keep this website updated! As usual we have been busy riding this winter. Oscar been putting a lot of time in the saddle as well as Rana and I.
Oscar is getting the young ones started and we've had a helper, Keenan Reinhardt, so that has been nice. My dad isn't as young as he once was The kids love Keenan!
I have been working all the futurity horses. It's fun to see the progression of them all. I entered the Washin...Read Full Post »

I can't believe how I've neglected our poor website! Lots of things have been happening. Its been a busy year to date. Nathan has hardly had a moment to sit down. He did all of our spraying for the first time this year followed by seeding and then haying. We didn't have to irrigate for the first cut (Monsoon June) but did for the second. Harvest is right around the corner so its fixing to get even busier. Mary Lynn is going to Europe for a month so it...Read Full Post »

Rana, Doc and Hitch made home safe and sound. Thank goodness. The ferry that takes you across the river to LaCrete forgot to anchor to the dock and when Rana was driving off it started to pull away. The trailer dropped off and on to land, amen! No damage that she could see of.
Dawson Creek was terrible and Rana opted not to run Doc there. If something were to happen to him she wouldn't forgive herself. She has a spot at the CFR and didn't need to run.&...Read Full Post »

Rana ended up winning Grimshaw and I just got a call with the final results from LaCrete. She finished 4th and this will unofficially move her into 4th spot in the Canadian standings with over $19,000 won. Cathy Grant was the champion which is totally awesome. I had to call and tell her too.
Rana had planned on heading out tonight after she had ran but instead decided to stay over. It was late and she would have a 5hr drive ahead of her t...Read Full Post »

Yeah an update from High Prairie!! Rana and Doc are winning the rodeo

Rana had an awesome weekend...or do you call it a week? It seems most rodeos are beginning midweek these days. She won 5th at Medicine Hat, placed 5th at Abbotsford, won Bruce and topped the weekend off with a 4th place at Strathmore. Both Medicine Hat and Strathmore were tour rodeo's so that will help towards making the tour finals. This past week will have also helped Rana move up the Canadian standings. Things had started off so well for her and then she hit a...Read Full Post »

Well I am thrilled to say Fizz did fabulous for her first outing. She handled Medicine Hat like an old pro considering we went cold turkey. We were a bit cautious but she ran right in the majority for times. Rana ended up winning 5th and a nice cheque. Strathmore wasn't nearly as smooth for Fizz and I. Again we weren't able to get into the arena to work barrels inspite of being there plenty early enough. The chuckwagons were practicing until 8am and the sla...Read Full Post »

We are off the Medicine Hat tomorrow morning at 5am sharp! We added Tim Horton's stopping allowance so that we are at the grounds in enough time to perhaps get my horse into the arena. I am cracking Fizz out, aka Ms Kid Dee Dial. She thinks she's up for the challenge and it will be an opportunity to get a few runs on her before she hits the fall futurity trail. I am up in the slack and Rana is in the performance. Wish us luck!

Congratulations goes out to Cotton and Tara Wilkinson. They placed high in the first round of the pole bending at the National High School Finals Rodeo. Good luck in round 2. Cotton is a daughter of the late Kiddin N Streakin. She was trained by Canadian barrel racing Icon Isabella Miller Haraga and later campaigned by granddaghter Skyler.
