Welcome

to the 50th annual NILE!

W

FROM NILE PRESIDENT JASON EUELL

elcome to the 50th annual Northern International Livestock Exposition! On behalf of the board of directors, thank you for helping to make the NILE one of America’s premier stock shows and rodeos. Since its inception, the NILE has been a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of livestock, agricultural education and respect for western culture. We are once again excited to host outstanding exhibitors and contestants from across the United States and Canada. Exhibitors, contestants and spectators alike will be impressed with the quality of the lineup of events at this year’s show. As NILE celebrates its 50th anniversary, it is important to look back and give thanks to all who have worked so hard to make the NILE the strong organization it is today. Look for special 50th Anniversary events, merchandise, photos, and exhibits throughout the week. This year the week starts out with the tradeshow and the NILE Ranch Rodeo Finals Saturday at the Metra. Immediately following the rodeo Saturday night is the Dance In The Dirt. As the name implies, this is a dance on the arena floor with music provided by Kyle Shobe and the Walk’ Em Boys. On Sunday as part of our 50year celebration, we will host the inaugural NILE BeerBQ. Sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, this fun event provides an opportunity to sample BBQ and local/regional microbreweries. That same day, the livestock shows begin. Make sure and check these out. We are thrilled with the number of breeds that see the value in exhibiting and showcasing their genetics at the NILE. Youth and agricultural education are primary

focuses. Monday begins our 4th grade ag education programs. Also, FFA and 4-H members from around the region arrive for the Livestock Evaluation and Sales & Service contests. This is still one of my favorite parts of the week. Other youth programs include Junior Fed shows, the Club Calf Show, Merit Heifer Show and more. Mid-week horse events include the NILE AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge / NRCHA Cow Horse Bash, the Gold Buckle Horse Futurities and multiple high-quality horse events and sales. The NILE means PRCA Pro Rodeo. In 2016 NILE was awarded the Rodeo of the Year in its size category by the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association and nominated for this same award by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. This is one of the earliest opportunities in the season for professional cowboys and cowgirls to qualify for the 2018 National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Plan on seeing past NFR champions as well as top up-and-comers during three nightly performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Top NFR stock, announcers, clowns and contestants continue to make this a highlight of the week. Staff, NILE members and volunteers put in countless hours to make this event successful year after year. We are grateful for all the hard work and devotion from these individuals. The generosity of our sponsors is also greatly appreciated. Please support those businesses who support the NILE, and let them know that their advertising dollars are being well spent. We welcome you to come and be part of the 50th Anniversary of the tradition and heritage that is the NILE.

a message from JENNIFER C. BOKA, NILE GENERAL MANAGER

2017 marks 50

years of memories that are steeped in tradition and education for the Northern International Livestock Education. The rich history of the NILE is one built based on the foresight and fortitude of the many leaders, exhibitors and partners of the NILE. Since October 2016, a long-time NILE partner has been given a salute each month to honor the support and commitment to the organization. Each of those groups have help to secure the organizations success over spanning 50 years. There is the saying that a Milestone marks an end to the past and a beginning of the future. This year’s fall show will celebrate that very milestone and welcome in the things to come. No doubt, the exceptional elements of the historic NILE Stock Show and Rodeo will be ever-present but the 50th anniversary additions will be ones for the record books. October 14th the action begins! Be sure to plan now to put on your dancing boots and attend the ranch rodeo. Not sure why you would wear your dancing boots to a rodeo? Well, stick around after to “Dance in the Dirt” to Kyle Schobe and the Walk ‘Em Boys. Of course, long time NILE Bull Fighter Al Sandvold will be playing with the band which is a can’t miss. Be careful not to get carried away by the smell of good food. New to NILE this year, BBQ masters will be honing their skills and prepping for the NILE Beer-B-Q Pitmaster Challenge Brew fest taking place Sunday the 15th in the Metra Arena. We welcome the kids to NILE every year. The Jr Fed Livestock Show’s will kick off this year with a cattle clinic by Kirk Stierwalt Saturday the 15th. Shows will be under way Sunday with $5000 in added money and a wildcard scholarship to be awarded. Then early in the week we look forward to the arrival of area 4th graders as they grace our event with peaked curiosity and inquisitive nature. The long-standing tradition of 4th grade ag education is something NILE is exceptionally proud of. Next up the 4-H and FFA youngsters arrive for the

A PUBLICATION OF

annual Livestock Evaluation and Sales & Service contests. The barns will be buzzing with 14 different breeds of cattle and record entries over the 8-day span, no doubt the Expo center is the place to be if great cattle genetics pique your interest. The NILE Club Calf sale is sure to offer many opportunities to fill your trailer as you plan for 2018 shows! Breed sales will round out the week’s cattle lineup. The Horse exhibitors will be bringing the futurity entries to town and outstanding horse flesh will be featured in the Ranching Heritage Show. No doubt, if you need to add to your Cavvy, there will be something for everyone at the NILE Gold Buckle Horse Sales. From boots to boutiques, ag equipment to art and much, much more the NILE Trading Post is open Saturday the 14th through Saturday the 21st. For the foodies at heart, there are 7 different food trucks for an adventure of tastes. Swing in for sublime shopping and outstanding food all via free admission. Three nights of pro rodeo action will run October 19 -21 with an appearance by the Wells Fargo Stage will be featured entertainment over the second weekend. The “2016 WPRA Medium Rodeo of the year” NILE Pro Rodeo will feature many of that region and countries top professional rodeo athletes as well as featuring high school champions! Have you witnessed the Wild Pony Riding? If not, it’s a must-see event nightly at the rodeo. Don’t miss this week full of 14 cattle breed division shows, horse futurities, rodeos, cattle and horse sales and outstanding shopping in the Trading Post will take place from the 14-21 of October. Come celebrate with us at the 50th annual NILE Stock Show and Rodeo. The FFA says it best. The NILE 2017; The Past, The Present and The Future. See you all in October.

Years is quite a milestone and the Northern International Livestock Exposition is proud to have reached it in 2017! Back in 1967, businessmen, cattlemen and industry professionals gathered up with a vision to “Support and Embrace the future of Agriculture and the Western Way of Life.” The individuals formed an exceptional panel of insight, education and foresight. Their goals were lofty yet so well worth the effort. Supporting many of the segments in ag and creating a platform and foundation to give youth a foothold in the future of agriculture was a primary focus. These talented, driven individuals’ mission remains strong today and we are proud to celebrate those segments that have allowed the NILE to reach 50 outstanding years! Half a century later the vision remains and the small livestock shows developed into an event with thousands of people celebrating the rural lifestyle.

Media “The NILE is saluting the many partners who have aided in the success of this organization. Without a doubt, the success and longevity of this organization is attributed to the hard work and efforts of our many supporters. Those involved with farming and ranching are tied together with common values of hard work, and are grateful for the blessings that the land and the industry provide us all. The NILE embraces this spirit of gratitude. We thank our media partners. Without the support of publications, radio, and television, the NILE would not have been able to share the story of our industry and our vision and hope for the future of agriculture. Many thanks to all of our media partners over the past 50 years that have supported, and continue to support, the NILE.” - Jason Euell, NILE President 2016-2017 We roll into the 50th year of NILE by saluting our industry partners, founders and supporters and continuing to promote, embrace and support the future of agriculture. Hosting the PBR, the MATE and Stetsons & Stilettos prior and culminating at next year’s 50th, the NILE Stock Show and Rodeo will be one for the history books. Our goal is to celebrate and thank our long time media partners for keeping the NILE message moving. Without each and every entity over the past 50 years getting the NILE word out, we would not have experienced the longevity and stay-ability as the NILE. Singling out one or another would be inappropriate as it has taken every media outlet to share our message. While the recent addition of TV time seems the highlight, many years of print media and radio advertising captured the interest of exhibitors and visitors alike. The effective and outstanding media entities that are dedicated to promoting the NILE have created that opportunity to get the word out and let people know what happens here at NILE. To our media partners, we at NILE salute you. Thank you for your dedication, years of service, years of promotion and love for the events.

Cattle Industry The NILE salutes the Beef Cattle Industry. For 50 years the cattlemen of Montana and the surrounding regions have supported and promoted the NILE by attending and exhibiting their livestock. The NILE was founded by some of the most progressive cattlemen and businessmen in the industry. It is only fitting that we salute and thank all of the many beef producers who have built the NILE into what it is today. Cattle are a huge part of the NILE, filling up the barn from start to finish, packing the schedule with shows and sales all week long. The 77,400 square foot Expo Center Building is completely full of 14 different cattle breeds. When the NILE started the pens at the Public Auction Yards were utilized. Even though the Expo Center is full, the NILE has grown so much that additional buildings need to be used to fit all the exhibitors. The Montana Pavilion houses the sale ring and the historical Heritage Building houses the Commercial Pen Classic Heifer Show. At the turn of the century, in 2000 the NILE started the Merit Heifer Program. The purpose of the project is to help youth get a start in the beef cattle business by awarding heifer calves to project participants chosen on the basis of merit, future goals and ability to care for the animal. Kids between 12 and 16 years old can apply for a heifer. Each program participant will own their calf jointly with NILE until the completion of the program, at which time NILE officials will sign off and the participant will take full ownership of the heifer and her offspring. During the program duration, participants are responsible for raising the heifer, arranging for her to be bred, completing the record keeping procedure and bringing the animal back one year later as a bred replacement heifer for exhibit at the NILE Stock Show.

Over 325 heifers and kids have gone through this program--that’s a lot of future cattle producers who have gotten a leg-up in this industry. That’s also a lot of donors. Generous ranchers have given up one of their heifers for the sake of this program--some giving a heifer multiple years. People like this truly make the cattle industry special and we salute you! The NILE Merit Heifer Program would not be possible without the support of beef producers. Cattle are a big part of Montana’s culture and we’re glad to be a part of Montana. Thank you to all of the cattle producers and their families. The NILE would not be what it is without you. Thank you!

Rodeo The very first indoor rodeo in Montana was at the 1969 NILE, just two years after the inaugural Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE). Fifty years later the NILE salutes the rodeo industry for riding with us for the past five decades.

For 50 years, rodeo cowboys and cowgirls of Montana and the surrounding regions have entered up at the NILE rodeo. The spirit of competition and camaraderie makes for an atmosphere unlike any other. Crowds of thousands attend the NILE professional rodeo annually, some people come back every year and wouldn’t miss it, while others experience the Western sport for the first time. There are many entities to thank for the success of the NILE rodeos. Without the dedication of the associations, contestants, committees, and behind-the-scenes workers, it wouldn’t be possible. The Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association and Women’s Professional Rodeo Association are excellent partners that validate the NILE as a premiere and professional event. The partnership with those associations gives credit to the hard work that goes into maintaining the title of first, and best indoor rodeo in Montana. The NILE also salutes the contestants. It’s impossible to have a rodeo without contestants, so thank you for risking the ride and giving the crowd someone to cheer for. The NILE Rodeo committee

TRI-STATE LIVESTOCK NEWS


is one of the largest committees of volunteers for the NILE. Numerous people dedicate their time to help put on the event, from opening gates, taking off ropes, and wrangling kids for mutton bustin’ to wild pony racing, the volunteers are a big asset. In the next 50 years the NILE hopes that rodeo remains the number one sport in the region, and that Billings, Montana is marked on the map for providing the highest quality rodeo for contestants and spectators.

MATE The Montana Agri-Trade Exposition (MATE) has been going and growing strong since 1976. It’s the largest agriculture trade show in the region, filling up 125,000 square feet, with over 600 vendors, and recording attendance of over 18,000. In 2008 the NILE purchased the MATE and hasn’t looked back since! It’s

a no-brainer for the two to be one. Promoting agriculture, supporting the businesses and individuals in this industry are both at the core of these shows. The NILE thanks the vendors for returning year after year, the volunteers who work tirelessly to make it go seamlessly, and the visitors who give the businesses a boost during the third week of February.

FFA “Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to serve,” is the National FFA Organization (FFA) motto--what valuable words to live by. Since 1928, the FFA has been striving to encourage young students to get involved in agriculture. In many ways, the FFA and the NILE share the same values and dedicate time to today’s youth in agriculture. Fueling the fire in FFA students promotes western heritage in the generations to come.

Over the course of a year, the NILE hosts a handful of youth programs, giving a special emphasis to FFA students. Chapters from the far corners of Montana, and surrounding states such as, Wyoming, North Dakota, Idaho and Washington send their members to compete in various events each fall. From the Jr. Fed Market Shows, to the Sales and Service and Livestock Judging CDEs, FFA has been a part of the long-standing traditions of the NILE Stock Show and Rodeo. Not only does NILE promote youth in agriculture at the fall show, the NILE hosts other opportunities for FFA members to be involved. FFA members are often found at the Montana AgriTrade Exposition (MATE) selling raffle tickets, partaking in a self-driven scavenger hunt, or simply participating as a guest at the show taking in the new products on display.

Spring months bring on the chance to apply for a NILE Merit Heifer. Applications open March 15 and close June 30. Applications are open to FFA and 4-H members ages 12-16. Recipients are not limited to the state of Montana. The NILE limits the recipients to members of FFA or 4-H because of the proven results from these organizations. Giving a live animal to a minor is a big risk, but there is assurance of a quality kid when they are involved in FFA or 4-H because of the ideologies they strive for and teach. The NILE also promotes secondary education and financial assistance for high school seniors and current college students through scholarships that are open to youth who have been involved with NILE in some way. More often than not that NILE involvement comes from participating in the FFA and 4-H contests, or the livestock shows. Experience is one of the best teachers, going back to learn by doing. The NILE selects a group of college students as interns for the week of the stock show and rodeo. When deciding which applicants will make the cut, past experiences are often the determining factor. Repeatedly on the applications, experience with leadership roles and critical thinking are from FFA experience. The NILE salutes the FFA organization for building strong, young individuals that become a part of our team. Their help during the third week of October is essential, and the skills that the interns come in with can be attributed to what they learned in FFA. Through the FFA motto, creed, and mission statement, it’s easy to see the impact the FFA Organization has had on past and present FFA members. For these reasons, and many more, the NILE salutes the Montana FFA. Thank you for promoting and embracing the western lifestyle, by developing today’s youth through agriculture education. FFA is a light of energy, a sea of blue, and most of all has given the NILE hope for the next 50 years!

PBR Bull riding action is a long-standing tradition in Billings, dating back to 1993 when the first bull riding event hit town, brought to Billings by the NILE. The PBR began when a group of professional bull riders broke off from the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association in 1992. This new organization boasted a single-event format that was sure to excite bull riding fans. An action packed event that the NILE organization was happy to embrace, NILE hosted its first in the spring of 1994. With that a long-standing tradition was formed and become history making as the longest running event in PBR’s history. That is 24 years of bringing exceptional stock, talented cowboys and an adrenaline rush like no other to Billings. The NILE salutes the PBR for partnering with us for the past two decades.

spirit of grit, determination and bravery--traits of the Western way of life that we work to preserve and embrace. Being progressive and constantly coming up with new ideas may seem contradictory to the stereotypical rural way of life. However, the most dangerous words in farming and ranching can be “do it the way we’ve always done it.” The PBR has done an exceptional job of changing it up. Keeping the bull riding action packed with the most impressive animal athletes, extremely competitive cowboys and a production that is sure to excite year after year. NILE Foundation President Butch Bratsky speaks of the first PBR event fondly. “From being a NILE board member and officer and on the Rodeo Committee back in the early to mid-1990s, I’d like to thank the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) for giving us the opportunity to host one of their top tier events in 1994 and every year since then. It’s been a great partnership and one that we are certainly proud of and to be one

of the elite venues working with the PBR is great for Billings, Montana and our bull-riding fans!!” It is with a tip of our hats that we salute the fans of the PBR for continuing to attend and support those professional bull riders who compete in Billings. The Billings fans are known for their knowledge of the event, dedication to the sport and warm welcome give to the cowboys year in and year out. The electric feeling in the air is addictive and contagious – thank you for being a part of that and coming back to get more. 50 years of NILE means a history of exceptional partnerships. We count ourselves fortunate to have had a partnership lasting 24 years strong this year with the Professional Bull Riders event. Thank You PBR, fans, and cowboys alike for your role in making NILE 50 years strong.

Equine Industry It’s been said that there’s something about the outside of a horse that’s good for the inside of man. As we work to preserve and embrace the Western way of life we salute the many facets of the horse industry. What would the West be without the influence of a horse? Think of the thousand-plus pound animal that somehow knows when a little girl is on it’s back. The good horse somehow intuitively knows how to be gentle and take care of its precious rider. How many young kids shimmied up a good old horse and gained invaluable confidence from riding? These gentle giants teach life-long lessons that can’t be replicated. Remember witnessing the incredible raw power of a bronc jumping out of the chute? The grit and determination sends out a kind of energy that can’t be captured. The bucking horse’s fierceness suggests that they’ll never be tamed. A romantic notion that speaks to a small piece of everyone. There’s a beauty to being wild and free and the horse reminds us of that feeling.

The partnership between horses and humans has been around for thousands of years. Connecting with a horse is an incredible experience. The capability to perform a variety of tasks proves the flexibility of the horse. Athletic is an understatement. Watching a cutting horse switch directions so rapidly and get so low to the ground is just one example of the quickness these animals have. Trotting up and down hills checking pastures from sunup to sundown just skims the endurance ability of horses. The versatility of horses makes them appealing to many people. Although differences in breeds and disciplines exist, the common love for horses is strong. The NILE events utilize horses in the spotlight and behind the scenes. There’s an entire department dedicated to NILE horse events. These events put horses in the spotlight. These horses perform at top levels showing off athleticism and carefully curated breeding. Behind the scenes and back at the ranch is where the true value of horses lies.

City Of Billings & The Billings Chamber The NILE began in 1967 when a group of progressive cattlemen and businessmen got together because they had a vision. Leaders like Pat Goggins, Conrad Burns, and Allen Walton knew the importance of Agriculture and wanted to make sure that generations later also knew the importance of this industry. Fifty years later here we are, the largest stock show and rodeo in Montana. We have contestants from all of the United States entering our cattle shows, horse sales, and rodeo. The people of Billings feel the impact because our week-long event brings thousands of people to town. The vision was a membership organization– gathering like-minded people to preserve and embrace the western way of life. What exactly is the western way of life? It’s a state of mind. It’s go-until-the-jobis-done-right work ethic. It’s teaching kids about life, leading by example, generosity of time and goods. It’s

a grit-your-teeth-and-get-through-it attitude. It’s a way of life that we value in Montana and in our shrinking wide-open spaces. If we don’t continue to promote what we love, the American cowboy and cattleman will only be in pages of history. Having the backing of the Chamber’s Ag Committee has supported the growth of the NILE. In turn, the NILE works to make the event attractive for exhibitors and spectators to attend. Additional exhibitors help the NILE succeed as well as the Billings businesses. Trucks have to be fueled, bellies have to be filled, heads needs beds to rest on.

One of the Chamber’s efforts over the years has been adding Visit Billings, an organization focused on bringing visitors to the area. We want to return the support that the Chamber has shown us by supporting their efforts. Collaboratively we can bring thousands of visitors to Billings to have a big economic impact. We especially love attractions that respect agriculture. For example, the Livestock Marketing Association (LMA) hosts the World Livestock Auctioneering Contest every year and Billings hosts 2017’s convention. Hundreds of auctioneers are expected to compete, bringing with them their families and friends. Lots of things have changed in the past half century. Community support and Montana hospitality haven’t changed – both have remained steadfast and true. Promotion from the Chamber over the years have been crucial to the success of the NILE events.

All of the programs inspire youth to get involved or stay involved in the industry that supplies the world. The largest 4-H and NILE partnership is the Livestock Judging Contest. Clubs from across Montana and surrounding states such as Wyoming, North Dakota, Idaho, and Utah, send their members to compete. Hundreds of kids fill the grounds to test their skills in judging the composition of animals, working on their decision-making skills, and public speaking. The NILE incorporates 4-H members into other programs such as the Jr. Fed Livestock Show. This program is a livestock show specifically and only for youth. They care for and raise an animal, learning first-hand responsibility, compassion, stewardship, nutrition and numerous other life skills. The hard work and dedication culminates at the NILE Jr. Fed Show. Spring months bring on the chance to apply for a NILE Merit Heifer, applications open March 15 and close June 30 of the given year. Applications are open to 4-H and FFA members ages 12-16. Recipients are not limited to the state of Montana. The NILE limits the recipients to members of 4-H or FFA because of the proven results from these organizations. Giving a live animal to a minor is a A PUBLICATION OF

big risk, but there is assurance of a quality kid when they are involved in 4-H or FFA because of the ideologies they strive for and teach. The NILE also promotes secondary education and financial assistance for high school seniors and current college students through scholarships. Open to youth who have been involved with NILE in some way. More often than not that NILE involvement comes from participating in the 4-H and FFA contests, or the livestock shows. The NILE is lucky to have a partnership with such a great organization. Youth involved in 4-H that participate in NILE events are respectful, and enjoyable. We welcome them back every year and look forward to see 4-H alumni continue their involvement with NILE.

Slowing Down

After decades of service to Billings and the NILE, Butch Bratsky prepares to retire BY HANNAH JOHLMAN

“It was like getting on a treadmill,” he says of serving on the NILE board, as well as numerous other boards through Montana and beyond. “Once you get going, it’s hard to get off.” –BUTCH BRATSKY

I

n 1993, Butch Bratsky received a wakeup call in the form of a heart attack at 39 years old. Working as a real estate broker throughout Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota and Idaho at the time, Bratsky says he was putting on close to 1,500 miles a week, often making it home barely in time for his children’s events. “That created a lot of stress,” he says. “It was time to take a look at my health and start slowing down.” Bratsky didn’t slow down. Instead, he guesses he only got busier. “It was like getting on a treadmill,” he says of serving on the NILE board, as well as numerous other boards through Montana and beyond. “Once you get going, it’s hard to get off.” A native Montanan, Bratsky was raised on a small farm and ranch near Bridger. He grew up playing 8-man football and he jokes about having to switch from his football jersey to his marching band uniform at half time because the school was so small.

Despite being offered a college scholarship for music, that was never where Bratsky’s passion lay. “I live for rodeo and I live for bull riding,” he says. “When you’re 18 years old and bullet proof, I wasn’t going to play the horn or sing. I wanted to do something rough and tumble. Rodeo just fit me better.” Bratsky started out riding bulls in the National Little Britches Rodeo Association, making it to the Little Britches Finals in 1966 and 1967. He made it to the National High School his senior year in 1971. After high school graduation, he began traveling to rodeos. “I wanted to go down south for college but I got busy rodeoing and I forgot to ask if they’d save me a bunk,” he says. “The only school that would let me go then was Montana State.” He walked onto the Bobcat Rodeo Team as a freshman and all four years of college rodeo, Bratskey made it to the College National Finals Rodeo, winning the championship buckle for bull riding in 1974.

Bratsky continued to ride bulls until he was 30 years old. “Once you hit 30, things kind of start to fall apart,” he says. “I had shoulder surgery and I’ve had 212 stitches in my head. That’s just a part of the game, the little dings and dents you get. That was before we had helmets, in fact we didn’t even have vests back then. It was a challenge. It’s a really tough sport, and it was a huge part of my life.” When Bratsky moved with his wife Shannon to Billings in 1993 to help start a new branch of the Stockmen Bank, he didn’t know many people in town. He did know, however, that the best way to make connections was to get involved. It was that year that he became an active member of the NILE board, as well as many other boards and organizations. “I was the chairman of the Big Sky Economic Development Council and I learned a lot there,” he says. “When I left that board, I went to the Chamber board, which of course promotes the city as best as it can. Then of course, the NILE promotes agriculture and the local area.” While Bratsky continues to serve on eight boards, with his retirement looming at the end of this year he says that he is currently in the “de-boarding” process. “I was the president of Stockman Bank for about 15 years,” Bratsky says. “You’d go everywhere. Now we’re at a point where time is really, really important. You can’t buy time, I don’t care how much money you have, a lot of those better things in life you can’t buy anyway.”

Bratsky gives a large nod of appreciation to his wife for allowing him to devote so much of his time to places other than their home for the past twenty-six years and says that he is looking forward to spending more time with her while they are in retirement. “The NILE will always hold a special place in my heart though,” he says, adding that he recalls going to the very first NILE as a boy in 1967. “I went to college and got an ag degree. Agriculture has always been a huge part of my life. We promote agriculture, agriculture education and youth growing up in agriculture. The NILE’s mission is exactly what I think agriculture should be, especially as agriculture is Montana’s number one industry. We need organizations like the NILE to support that.” Shortly after joining the NILE, Bratsky was instrumental in organizing the first bull riders only invitational event, which was the precursor to what became the annual Professional Bull Riders event held every spring. “We are the smallest venue of any of the Built Ford Tough events through the PBR and we are the longest standing event in the nation,” he says. “They started the PBR after our bull riding invitational and 1994 was our first PBR event.” From the first bull riding only invitational, Bratsky says that he is still impressed at the performance that it has become today. Each event is identical to the next and the PBR trucks in everything from the arena dirt to the pyrotechnics and sound system. “It’s unbelievable. It’s more like a cross between a rock show and a

TRI-STATE LIVESTOCK NEWS


motocross, but with bull riding that is second to none,” Bratsky says. “We get some of the best bulls and the top 35 cowboys in the sport.” It was the weekend of the first bull riders only invitational in 1993 that Bratsky had his heart attack. He recalls receiving an autographed rodeo poster from all the bull riders entered. “I’ve got that poster all framed and its one of my favorite things,” he says. “I had just started the bank too, but I stayed on with the bank and with the NILE and the rodeo.” Years later when the idea for the NILE Foundation began to take root, Bratsky was approached about spearheading the project. Not one to turn down a challenge, he agreed and soon became president of the foundation, a position he will hold through the 2017 NILE before stepping down.

“At the Foundation, we try to generate the money to give out in the form of scholarships to high school kids and kids who are going to college and are active in the agricultural field,” Bratsky says. “My wife works on the silent auction and several of the committees that raise funds for that.” Bratsky estimates that in the last four years, the amount of scholarship money has more than doubled thanks to generous donors and the foundation’s efforts. As October draws near Bratsky prepares for his final NILE on the board, but he adds, certainly not his final NILE ever. It may have taken over 24 years, but it’s time for Butch Bratsky to slow down. “We’ve bought a place down in Arizona and I sure like shoveling sunshine better than snow,” he says. “But, even though I won’t be on the board anymore, I’ll be there. I will always be a Montana kid.”

NILE Volunteer of the Year Goggins recognized among army of volunteers BY TAMARA CHOAT

“My dad (Pat Goggins) was the first NILE president, so I kind of grew up with it,” said Goggins. “It’s a big part of the community – both Billings and the ag community in the region.” –JOE GOGGINS

T

he NILE was started by volunteers who believed in the cause—to promote agriculture in the city of Billings— and for 50 years it has been carried on by the same. From the folks greeting visitors to folks marking floors for trade show booths, to those stuffing packets before the event, to the ones cleaning stalls, setting up panels and even auctioneering, the volunteers make the NILE happen. “We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without volunteers,” said McCall Linke, NILE equine programs and communications director. “We love them. Love, love, love!” Each year the NILE recognizes a volunteer who has consistently contributed to the success of the NILE with their time and talents. This year Joe Goggins earns the title of Volunteer of the Year, as he carries on a family tradition of promoting agriculture through the NILE. “My dad (Pat Goggins) was the first NILE president, so I kind of grew up with it,” said Goggins. “It’s a big part of the community – both Billings and the ag community in the region.”

A PUBLICATION OF

The Goggins family has been a pillar of the NILE since Pat Goggins helped start it in 1967. Goggins donates his time to the club calf sale and junior fed sale each year, and every other year is hired to auctioneer the Angus breeding show. He is also a past director of the NILE and provides a valuable fundraiser each year through the Goggins’ family businesses. They host special sales each spring— Top of the Rockies at Public Auction Yards (PAYS), and the spring NILE feeder stock special at Billings Livestock Sale—from which they donate $1 to the NILE for every head sold. Goggins’ relationship with the NILE started when he was a kid. “Growing up we all showed steers and heifers there and competed in the NILE. Each time you did that you got special memories from that. And the calf ribbon untying … everybody on the ranch has done that at least once,” he said. One of Goggins’ favorite memories from the NILE, though, is when they honored his dad as Man of the Year. “He came in on a stagecoach and sang ‘God Bless America;’ it was a real special moment.”

Jay Nansel is an area sales manager for Select Sires out of Billings, and has known Joe Goggins for about 30 years – approximately the same amount of time he’s been involved volunteering with the NILE. Nansel has long served as the superintendent of the NILE Club Calf Show and Sale, has been a director of the NILE and was past president in 2012-2013. Nansel and several others nominated Goggins as Volunteer of the Year, based on his longtime involvement with the NILE, and his annual contributions. “Every year he willingly does it – just comes in and sells the sale as a world class auctioneer. We very much appreciate it,” Nansel said.

Nansel said volunteers truly are the lifeblood of the NILE, the ones who put the boots on the ground when numbers are needed. “There’s no way the NILE can function without the army of volunteers we have in all aspects of the event,” he said. “Each committee has multiple volunteers: the horse show, rodeo, stock events … with very few paid employees. The paid employees organize the volunteers, but without the volunteers it just wouldn’t get done.” The volunteers keep things running during the event, but many volunteer committees meet throughout the year, said Linke. “They provide expertise and knowledge, connections to businesses and people, and when the time comes they provide the grunt labor. They move panels and boxes, sort paperwork, scoop poop and do amazing things that we don’t even think about to make the NILE run smoothly. They’re truly a godsend.” “The NILE has just always been a part of what we do here,” Goggins said. “It brings a lot of friends and neighbors in the community together and everyone gets to see a lot of good stock and lots of great entertainment.” It’s that sense of community that Goggins values and works to promote. He said one of the deepest intrinsic values of the NILE is the people, businesses and acquaintances you make connections with. “The breeders and the people who come, they are so appreciative of the work [of the volunteers and the NILE],” he said. “You really get paid back tenfold for what you do.”

Designed with Ranchers in Mind NILE Commercial Heifer Class Pen Show evaluates bred females best suited for the cow-calf enterprise. BY AMANDA RADKE | Photos Courtesy of Shelby Shaw

A

s the Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017, ranchers and western lifestyle enthusiasts will gather in Billings, Mont., to enjoy breed shows, prospect sales, rodeos, bull riding, horse events and more. One of the premier events of the NILE is quickly becoming the Commercial Heifer Class Pen Show. Started in 2014 by NILE board member Dwain Hould, the event was created specifically with the rancher in mind as a panel of three judges evaluates pens of commercial bred heifers. “Larry Gran and I pitched the idea of this commercial heifer pen show as a way to get the ranching community more involved at the NILE,” said Hould, who serves as the event superintendent. “The commercial bred heifers are weighed and classed for evaluation; no registration papers or pedigrees are required, but they must show proof of pregnancy. From there, the panel of judges, who are ranchers themselves, study the animals strictly on structure, maternal traits, conformation of feet and legs, etc.” The group of heifers is loose in the ring, and the judges look through them individually and confer with each other to determine winners of each weight class. The winners then go head-to-head for an overall grand and reserve champion.

The buckle is just one of the prizes taken home by the champion and reserve pens, with the total package “We have tremendous industry sup- valued at port for this event; we truly couldn’t do more than it without our sponsors,” said Hould. “It’s $5,000. a laid-back atmosphere because ranchers don’t have to worry about halter breaking or fitting and clipping their animals, but each year, the competition gets tougher and tougher.” This year’s sponsors include Zoetis, Genex, Genex Hawkeye West, EstroTech and MultiMin. “We don’t have our prizes set in stone just yet; however, in the past couple of years, the winners have taken home belt buckles,” said Shelby Shaw, NILE livestock department manager. “With our industry partners, the champions have received 50 units of semen plus arm service, 50 CIDRS, and GeneMax tests for commercial cattle; the reserve champions have won 25 units of each item, as well.”

With several breeds represented, it’s up to the judges to determine which trio of bred females will ultimately work well in a cow-calf operation. While their opinions may vary, their ultimate decision as a panel of judges also becomes a score card for the crowd. “Ranchers bring their best to the NILE, and our spectators get really excited about it,” said Shaw. “In addition to the pen show, we have our Cattlemen’s Cut Judging Contest, and the public can come an hour before the show starts to evaluate the pens and mark score cards to guess how the judges will place them. This adds an extra element of fun and friendly competition as they stay to watch the show to see if they placed the classes right or not.” The winner of the Cattlemen’s Cut Judging Contest also takes home the exact prize that the champion pen receives, and in previous years, the prize package has valued at well over $5,000. “Last year, it was standing room only as folks watched to see how the pen show would turn out,” said Hould. “This year, we expect to have even more pens than usual, and it’s a great opportunity for ranchers to advertise the females they have for sale back at home. In my opinion, this has been a great addition to the NILE that ranchers and spectators have really come to look forward to watch year.” Danny Mydland, owner of Mydland Angus Ranch located near Joliet, Mont., has participated in the pen show every year since it has been introduced. In 2014, his pen of three earned champion honors.

Following his win in 2014, Mydland decided to pen up three bred heifers early before the contest, feeding them a little harder in preparation for the pen show. “We won it the first year, and the next year, the judges decided our heifers were too fat,” said Mydland. “That’s okay; it was a learning experience for us, and it’s truly a breeding type show where the judges are looking for practical cattle that will work on the range.”

Friend of the NILE

Metra Maintenance Crew

BY MARIA TIBBETTS

W

hen an event brings thousands of people—plus cattle, horses and other livestock—to a facility, a lot of work happens behind the scenes to make the experience positive.

That’s where the Metra maintenance crew comes in for the NILE. From emptying trash cans to fixing lights, hauling dirt, setting up panels, making sure the heat or air conditioning is working, the crew is on duty to make sure all the duties get done. “They are just amazing,” said McCall Linke, NILE equine and communications director. “It’s not just the work that they do, it’s their kindness toward us. They look out for us, which is nice. They always say hi to us, always wave. If we need something, they are the go-getters who just go do it. They are so accommodating, which we appreciate so much.” Kevin Richeson is an electrician/engineer with the Metra maintenance crew. He estimates they support more than 300 events throughout the year, but the NILE is one of the biggest. “It’s a lot of work for the maintenance guys, but it’s great for the community and brings people from all over,” he said. The staff is full-time, with two engineers and about 12 maintenance staff. The NILE office is on the fairgrounds, so the NILE staff works with the Metra staff year-round. “They tease us a little, take some of our candy and just make sure we’re doing okay,” Linke said. “They have a great staff—we like to make sure they’re safe and their needs are met,” Richeson said. “They’re just a great bunch of people to work for. The maintenance guys appreciate when their work gets recognized, so it was nice of the NILE to give us this award and dinner. It was much appreciated.”

he NILE has announced a brand new and exciting event that combines beer, barbecue (BBQ), and music from the Montana area called BeerB-Q on October 15th from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Metrapark Rimrock Auto Arena. “It’s a brand new event for NILE and what we are trying to do is broaden our demographics to try to involve some of the younger people into the NILE organization,” NILE Board Member Rick Hamilton says. “The NILE is primarily an agricultural based group who raises money for scholarships and we are just looking for ways to help reach a larger group of people.” According to Hamilton, the event will include a BBQ cook-off, sanctioned by the 46

Kansas City BBQ Society from Kansas, City, with participants from Montano and many other states. “People that win here [at the Beer-B-Q event] will be qualified to go to the Kansas City Royals World Series BBQ and have a chance at the Jack Daniels Invitation,” Hamilton says. “Its kind of a big thing in the BBQ world.” He also says that the event will feature roughly 30 breweries from all across Montana and the surrounding area and attendees will be able to sample both the BBQ and beer using tokens, Hamilton says. According to the NILE website, those that purchase tickets will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite BBQ and beer. The band Wench will be playing at the event, whose eclectic music is a mesh of different musical genres and styles, Hamilton says. “It should be an exciting event,” Hamilton says. “There is nothing quite like it.” Awards for the BBQ competition will be awarded around 4 p.m. on that day, Hamilton says. According to the NILE website, admission to the event is free, but beer and BBQ sampling is not. However, attendees can purchase 10 tokens for $25 to be exchanged for samples and additional tokens can be purchased for $2 each.

Two Brand New 50th Anniversary

T

he NILE has also announced the addition of the event, Dance in the Dirt, featuring Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘em Boys to celebrate its 50th anniversary on Saturday October 14th at approximately 9 p.m. in the Rimrock Auto Arena.

Kyle Shobe, lead singer of the Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘em Boys band, describes his band’s music as country western dance music and says he plays a little bit of everything from Bob Wills to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to George Straight.

“We wanted to do something special and the NILE has always had its stock show and rodeo and years ago we used to have a kick off dinner dance event, but it was just tough for it happen,” said NILE Board Member Al McCormick. “For the 50th anniversary, we wanted to do something special.”

“I’ve had this band for a number of years now and they’re all Montana based musicians and we have a lot of fun playing together,” Shobe says. “We try to brand ourselves as a Montana band that likes to play to dancing crowds.”

As soon as the ranch rodeo is over, the rodeo arena will be converted and set up with a stage and the public will be invited down into the Metro arena to dance and enjoy the music until midnight, McCormick says. He describes the event as similar to a street dance, but instead the dance is right there inside the Rimrock Auto Arena and he anticipates it being a fun and exciting time. “I am a little prejudiced, but I look forward to this being a kick off event,” McCormick says. “The NILE itself is just a fun week with lots of activities and it’s a real boost in the arm for the city of Billings.”

He says there are a lot of things about this event to be excited about and is looking forward to being a part of the event. He also says the people that will be at the Dance in the Dirt event are the type of people his band caters to and the type of people they love playing for. “We hope to add to the event [Dance in the Dirt] and make it a success for everybody,” Shobe says. According to the NILE website, anyone who wishes to attend the will need to purchase a ranch rodeo ticket.

High School Showcase

puts youth in spotlight BY KAYCEE MONNENS

I

magine being a high school rodeo athlete waiting in the alley or behind the chutes and hearing your name called after Lisa Lockhart’s, or Chuck Schmidt’s. That’s a reality for two Montana students in each event during the NILE High School Showcase, this year in conjunction with the PRCA rodeo on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. A professional rodeo is held in conjunction with the NILE expo, and many elite rodeo athletes come to Billings to compete in one of the first rodeos of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association year. One feature of the NILE ProRodeo gives high school athletes the chance to compete against the top competitors in the world. Thursday night, during the PRCA performance, two young athletes per event (and two teams in team roping) are invited to match their skills against rodeo’s best. The student athletes are chosen from the Montana High School Rodeo Association, and consist of the two leaders in each event after the fall season. Though several high school events are not in the PRCA, the standard seven events are featured in the NILE showcase: bareback riding, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, team roping, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding. The high school competitors’ times don’t count against the professionals.

They’re competing against each other for gift cards. “But it’s very cool to run alongside them,” says Emma Johnson, a two-time barrel racing competitor in the showcase. Johnson, from Manhattan, Montana, qualified the past two years as a sophomore and a junior. “I used my horse, Faith, who I’ve had since I was ten,” Johnson said. She and Faith have the opportunity to qualify for the showcase again this year, if they are among the top two after the Montana high school rodeo fall season. “The season hasn’t started yet, but hopefully will go well so I can qualify,” she said. For most high school rodeo athletes competing in the showcase, it’s their first big show. “It’s very nerve-wracking. I had never run in front of that many people before, or been around so many professional barrel racers,” Johnson said. Brody Grebe, who competed in the tie-down roping as a sophomore, felt similarly. “The crowd and the music made it feel even more like you were on the big stage like I’ve been dreaming of for years,” he said. Bareback rider Shawn Perkins of Roberts, Montana also attests to the thrill of experiencing a professional rodeo as a high school competitor. “It

was pretty radical seeing all the guys you look up to there, even though it was Thursday and there were only a couple. Just being on that stage was pretty cool.” Perkins competed his junior and senior years, scoring 75 points on a Powder River bucking horse his senior year. “The stock was pretty sweet,” Perkins went onto say. “Dang sure bucked, but just pretty nice.” There are similar showcases held for high school rodeo athletes around the region, including the 20x Showcase, a part of the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo in Rapid City, South Dakota, and the fivestate showcase in conjunction with the AkSarBen stock show in Omaha, Nebraska. However, the NILE showcase is unique, because young athletes become peers to professionals for a night. “I ran against Lisa Lockhart who I have seen run in the WNFR, which was very exciting,” said Johnson.

Lisa Lockhart says it’s a great opportunity. “That’s got to be the thrill of a lifetime for them to compete against those that are the top in the world,” she said. “It’s very cool and encouraging for those kids. I commend the NILE for doing that for them.” “Some of the competitors there I had watched on TV at the NFR, so I didn’t want to screw up in front of them,” Grebe said. Perkins said, “All the guys were super helpful and had a lot to say.” The showcase also encourages professional rodeo careers in the next generation. Perkins is now on the professional rodeo circuit, and though he had an idea he would rodeo professionally after high school, the opportunity inspired him even more. “I was pretty set knowing I wanted to do that, but it made it more real,” he said.

uilding a reputation in a tough industry drew Trent and Dawn Martin to the NILE to market their horses. The opportunity to show their horses, sell them and have the buyers return to show them in futurities was too good to pass up for the family from North Dakota. Dawn’s parents, James and Darlene Swenson, have been in the horse business for more than 35 years, so when Trent and

Dawn met while they were rodeoing in college, it made sense to look to the family business as they planned their future together. Trent says they bought their first mare before they were married, 17 years ago, with the goal of raising and riding their own geldings on their ranch in western North Dakota. They ranch with Dawn’s parents, and have worked with them to build a horse program around the first stallion James bought at a weanling sale in Canada, Two D Driftwood.

That first stallion has been siring colts for them for 18 years, and they’re hoping he’ll hold up for a few more years. Dawn said they really like the Driftwood bloodlines, especially crossed on cow-bred mares. “Wow, what an asset he’s been to our operation,” Dawn says. Their most recent stallion acquisition, Busy Haidin, came from Haythorn Land and Cattle Company last year. They own two sons of Busy, and Trent has competed in ranch rodeos on one, taking home top horse honors at the Neal Earl Hermanson Memorial Ranch Rodeo and the Circle Ranch Rodeo this year. Two years ago they bought Blue Lighting Ike, an own son of White Lighting Ike, out of a Lowry Star daughter. Dawn said they were excited to have those bloodlines in a blue roan, so they had the breeding and the color. They got to breed him two years, mostly to smaller cowbred mares to offset his 16-hand

Selling colts is something new for the Martins. Trent says they didn’t sell a horse colt off the place for the first 15 years they were breeding horses. “That was how we picked out mares and what we wanted to cull and keep, by keeping all the horse colts.” When they did finally decide to start selling horse colts, they took them to the NILE. He said they try to take two to three really nice colts to the NILE every year. “It’s paid off. We’re starting to build a pretty nice reputation out there.” Dawn says, “I had kind of known about the sale, but what really drew me to going there and looking at it was the futurity aspect. It’s nice being able to take colts out there and have somebody do something with them puts a value on our horses.” Dawn says the AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge is another draw, allowing her and her two boys, Cooper, age 7 and Colter, age 12, to compete as well. The boys put miles on the ranch horses inside and outside of the arena, and are learning the business as they go. “Right now, one of our main goals is our children,” Trent says. “We want to keep them mounted on good horses.

both sticklers, we want our boys to grow up to be good horsemen. I’m trying to teach them how to start a colt, how to be a horseman before a rodeo athlete. I want them to have some ability with that horse.” Working with their boys to make ranch horses has created a market for them in youth horses. “We want that disposition that kids can get along with; a lot of people are looking for those horses,” Trent says. That disposition is the first thing they look for when they’re selecting breeding stock. After that is conformation, then color. “It’s not a top priority, but if you’re in the business of selling horses, color is important. But I can sell a horse with a really good disposition that’s a sorrel or a bay as easy as anything,” Trent says. In addition to breeding them right, the Martins put the time into training them right. “We don’t just put a month on them and send them down the road,” Dawn said. “We ride a lot of them for at least a year. It’s important to us to put out a good quality ranch horse that has seen everything that you can do with them.”

unique, “live animal� scholarship, the merit heifer program provides approximately 25 youth each year the opportunity to show and care for a donated heifer. The heifers are generously provided by ranches across the region. Each program participant owns his or her calf jointly with NILE until the completion of the program, at which time NILE officials will sign off and the participant will take full ownership of the heifer and her offspring. During the program duration, participants are responsible for raising the heifer, arranging for her to be bred, completing the record keeping procedure and bringing the animal

The program is completed after the heifer is determined bred, all record keeping has been completed and the heifer has been shown at the NILE. Over 275 4-H and FFA members from across the western United States have had the opportunity to participate in this program since its inception in 2002. The growing success of the merit heifer program hinges on the generosity and support of the ranches that donate a heifer. Since the program started, a multitude of ranches representing registered, purebred, and commercial breeders have donated a heifer.

Sale terms and conditions Sale Management acts as mediator only. Although NILE does a pre-sale screening with a veterinarian, NILE makes no guarantee, either written or verbal. All horses (with no stated guarantees) sell “as is” with any and all responsibilities and guarantees strictly between the buyer and the seller. Each horse on which there are two or more bids will be sold to highest bidder. Auctioneer settles disputes and his decision is final. Announcements from the block take precedence over printed and other announcements. Every effort has been made to assure catalog correctness, but NILE assumes no liability for errors or omissions or for statements, verbal or written, regarding horse(s) sold. Catalog comments are provided by seller. Payment terms of the sale are cashier’s check, certified check, traveler’s check, personal check, or credit card with picture ID, and/or any bank letter of guarantee, in U.S. funds only, payable within half hour after sale. A 3 percent fee will be assessed for all credit card purchases. There is a $30 charge per returned check. Any collection costs (and attorney’s fees) shall be paid by the buyer. Upon payment, cashier will issue a delivery order which must be in buyer’s possession to leave grounds. Buyer pays brand inspection fee. Certificate of Registration and transfer will be mailed to the buyer. All horses will be sold in accordance with Montana auction laws. Title passes to the purchaser at the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer, at which time the purchaser assumes the responsibility for risk of injury and liability of horse. Any injury or loss of said horse(s) or change in horse’s condition occurring after the fall of the hammer, but before making final settlement or taking final delivery as set forth herein, shall not be grounds for revision of the sale. The purchaser or his agent may take care, custody and/ or control of the horse immediately at fall of the hammer, but such taking shall not constitute delivery of the horse. Delivery shall be made only after the purchaser presents himself to NILE cashier and pays purchase price in full. Purchasers who make final settlement shall be tendered delivery in the form of a “release” for the horse, which allows purchaser or his agent to obtain a brand inspection to remove horse from grounds. All persons who attend the sale do so at their own risk. The sellers, NILE Sale Management, directors, staff, membership, sponsors, and volunteers, as well as MetraPark and Yellowstone County, assume no responsibility, legal or otherwise, for any and all liabilities for loss, damage, theft, death or injury to livestock, persons, or property.

If you are looking for a prospect that is built for speed this is him! To add to this speed is the proven cow of his sire. He has a fantastic disposition and his ½ brother “BNH Montana Moon” aka Brownie, is a PRCA rodeo head horse money winner. We kept this colt as a stallion prospect because we are confident that he has all the right pieces for a top performance horse and would be a great addition to anyone’s breeding program.

His sire is 88% foundation and passes on his great mind and disposition to his foals! His full sister is turning out very nice and is my favorite of last year’s foals! If you decided to keep him a stud he would produce color 100% of the time. MARE / AQHA #PENDING

Bow Tye is a big growth filly with a lot of eye appeal. Bred to be a great arena horse–she is out of a mare that was Danny Frasers’ wonderful heading horse for many years and of course Zipanic on the top side is a proven sire of great performance horses so Bow Tye is the complete package. She has been gentle from the day she was born and is easy to handle. Would also make a wonderful 4-H project.

Major is a 15 H yrling drum horse. Drum horses were used to carry 2 large solid silver kettle drums plus a fully outfitted rider through crowds of thousands in the Queen’s parade.This breed is very versatile and suitable for a variety of diciplines, such as pleasure riding, driving, dressage, and eventing. Like his ancestors, MAJOR is level headed with a calm demeanor. He’s quiet natured, strong, steady, and will mature to 16.2-3 hands.You don’t get the opportunity to own one of these wonderful horses every day! If you want a flashy, willing, and gentle minded horse, don’t miss out on MAJOR!

Flashy running bred style,ranch raised gelding that spent his first summer running on the Big Horns in rough country. Easy to catch, load and trim. He’s a friendly colt that likes attention and wants to please. I’d call him a perfect barrel prospect and don’t pass him by if you are looking for a big heading prospect either. Sire stands 15.2 hands, 1,300+ lbs. Dam stands 15.1 and is 1,200 lbs. He’s a leggy fellow that is also a beauty to look at. Scar on left front cannon bone from being raised in rough mountain pastures. He also took the skin off his hocks this summer jumping over a cable fence. Just cosmetic, guaranteed sound, but gosh...you might want to make him a jumping horse! For sure an all-around type of athlete with cow and speed bred horses in his pedigree.

We can’t say enough about this horse. He’s big, gentle, broke, and handy. Rebound is a solid ranch gelding that handles every situation in stride. He can stand time off and will ride off nicely. He can handle big cattle in the rope, rough ground, and can take a lot of pressure. Rebound is gentle for most anybody, but also has the gumption to make you want to catch him when you have a big day ahead and he’ll lope through the barrels if you want him to. He is truly a pleasure to have and be around. See video at https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=XKzFIr9nIc0 PALOMINO
