We had an awesome week in Calgary. Rana did better than fantastic. We are so proud of her. She started off by winning the round on her first run and she has a nice paycheck and a really cool bronze to show for it. Unfortunately a tipped barrel in round 2 cost her from placing again but she was able to grab some money in the last two rounds. She was tied for 4th with Deb Renger in her pool but the tie went to her as she had posted the fastest time. It was ni...Read Full Post »

I am not going to complain about the rain. Thats right. I am a farmer. Too much rain is better than a drought. We haven't had a hay crop like this ever! Our crops have suffered from the excess rain but at least we got all the seed in the ground which is better than alot of western Canada. The sunshine is going to help for sure.
Rana is up in Pool B at Calgary. She starts this Tuesday. We had a few fun days prior the the action with Br...Read Full Post »

Well it has been beyond long since last updating this blog. I figure it's high time to do so. Speaking of to do...there is a lot on the to do list before the big I DO!! Rana's wedding is only 10 days away. The arena is now closed and the wedding prep begins. She and Logan are going to be having their wedding right here on the ranch. If this silly wind will quit the ceremony will be outside with the reception to follow inside the arena. I am looking su...Read Full Post »

So we had a great day in Taber! Rana took Doc to get a run on him before Rapid City. The set up is similar to Rapid City in that it's a smaller pen and you come in from the left side to the alley and then run. He hadn't made any runs prior to Denver since the CFR and it will help him to get in the swing of things! He won it. I just can't get over how solid he has become. Fun to watch.
Pickard did fabulous. I felt that I rode him much better and ...Read Full Post »

I was getting a little nervous today that tomorrow's barrel race would be cancelled. The weather isn't really bad it's just that its been sooo nice that it almost seems cold tonight! I called and its a go I'll let you know how it goes. Pick and I had a learning week. He is a challenge and I know it. I am learning lots and still love him. This past weekend didn't go well and after much discussion with OW I am trying to fix me. I have a tendanc...Read Full Post »

Although many have been rodeoing down south this winter not much goes on here in the north country until spring arrives. Rana had decided that it was in her and Doc's best interest not to venture south for the winter months but instead to go to a few rodeo's and come back home. She is headed out to Denver this weekend and will run Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. I am really excited for her. Doc is looking awesome and feeling like he wants to explode and run some ba...Read Full Post »

We have been having a great time at the barn. With Kareen and Amos and Rana and I we've have been getting a pile done. Around 25 head of horses are being rode a day! I have been posting video's of our horses but I'll have to start putting pictures up. With all the riding there has to be some fun breaks so we don't get burnt out! The massive amount of snow has provided us with some entertainment. The Ranger works great to pull the sled, knee board and saucer...Read Full Post »

I am hoping Rana reads this and gets some of those video's downloaded for me :)! I am not to sure about operating that silly camera and I don't want to delete anything.
Glad Kareen is back and Amos too. Its so nice to ride at the arena with company. Only one was a little fresh after the Christmas break but it wasn't a problem and Amos weathered the storm. Everything is riding nice and we are enjoying our little Arizona as my dad calls the arena in winter.&...Read Full Post »

It sure has been awhile since we've updated the blog! We had a wonderful Christmas celebrated with family and friends. Kassie was spoiled rotten and is now ready to ride with her brand new saddle. She rides Doc and when asked to come down she says "No thank you".
The barn is full of youngsters. It has been great having Kareen here and new to the crew is Amos Abrahamson. He came for a few days before Christmas to test it out and will be back on t...Read Full Post »
