COVER ARTIST

DAVID GRAHAM

D

avid Graham is an emerging Western and Wildlife artist whose depictions of the West spring to life through his creations on canvas. David was born in Miles City, MT during the time his family was operating a ranch in the Powder River area east of Miles City. His family’s deep roots in the western way of life have greatly influenced David’s art and have nurtured his interest in the land since his very early years. His passion to paint the people, wildlife, and scenery of the West comes not only from the aesthetic beauty that captivates him, but also from his love and interest for the land’s history and culture. Today David lives in rural eastern Montana. When he is not at the easel he is enjoying the great outdoors that Montana has to offer. He looks forward the most to his time spent gathering research material. Whether riding horseback in the Badlands, or hiking a quiet, mountain trail, it is his love of the land of the West that drives and motivates him in his work as a painter. David’s faith in God also maintains an important place in his life. He is perpetually swept away by the beauty of God’s creation. He feels blessed to be able to share what he has seen and experienced. It is his goal that others may experience the same enjoyment through his art. www.davidgrahamart.com

Your Performance. Your Saddle. Your Ride. Todd Bergen can easily be defined as one of the most versatile horsemen of modern times. The Eagle Point, Oregon native’s earnings in the cowhorse and reining events, along with several performance horse rider titles, are unsurpassed. Among a long list of accomplishments are two NRCHA Snaffle Bit championships, two NRHA Futurity titles, and two NRHA Derby championships. That is just scratching the surface. The Martin Performance is the saddle Todd chooses to show in the Reined Cowhorse and the Reining in. He was instrumental in helping Brian test and design the saddle.

Todd Bergen

“When we were testing and riding the saddle, we had a goal of how we wanted the tree and seat to fit the rider and horse, and we accomplished just that. The seat puts you where you need to be, but with unsurpassed freedom. The fenders hang at the right angle to put my legs and feet in ideal placement.”

$2M NRCHA Rider & $2M NRHA Rider Erin Taormino’s Martin Performance saddle is as unique as she is. Early in her career, she worked for her mentor, Todd Bergen, and has since excelled and begun her own training program with her husband Anthony at the Stuart Ranch in Oklahoma. Erin is one of the top Open Reined Cowhorse trainers in a profession where the vast majority are men. She is one of only two women to win the Reserve Championship at the coveted NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, scoring a record high in the fence work at Reno in 2016 with a 228. Her exceptional horsemanship skills are evident with every horse she swings a leg over. “My favorite aspect of the Performance saddle is the seat. It has a “sweet spot” pocket that keeps you right where you want to be while going fast down the fence, and is versatile enough to do all the events in. Not to mention, the craftsmanship is second to none and they are beautiful, well-made saddles.”

Erin Taormino

Reserve Snaffle Bit Champion

Zane Davis has a unique story. He grew up as a rodeo cowboy instead of in the horse show world. Son of Shawn Davis, a rodeo producer and saddle bronc rider, Zane first followed a similar course with great success. The Blackfoot, Idaho horseman’s start in the cowhorse was anything but conventional. He was selftaught and never trained with a mentor, but once fully committed, he was a force to be reckoned with. Zane achieved the coveted Snaffle Bit Championship title on the gelding “Raymonator” in 2009, only five years into his career. He hit the Million Dollar Rider milestone in only “ten years and one show”. Zane keeps a couple different versions of the Performance saddle on hand. He currently has an all roughout saddle he rides daily and a fully tooled saddle to show in.

Zane Davis

NRCHA Million Dollar Rider 16

STOCK SHOW & RODEO

“I searched long and hard for a saddle that fit my style and needs, and the Martin Performance was it. It fits me perfectly for all three events in my opinion, offering the right seat in each. It’s hard to find that “spot” in saddles, and this one has it. It’s the highest quality and well made, but it’s lightweight, which is big for me. I also have had great luck with it fitting colts consistently, which is hard to do.” | A PUBLICATION OF

TRI-STATE LIVESTOCK NEWS


On every ranch and in every barn, there is always that one horse. The one that is always the first pick, the most dependable, the one you can count on to take care of you, your kids, or anyone that comes across the place. It’s the one that is built to last, the most durable, the leader of the herd. It is always unique, no two are alike, and it comes in any size, shape or color. Some have more chrome, are shinier than others. But make no mistake, no matter the appearance, it is of the highest quality. Everyone knows that horse, and if you are lucky enough, you have had the chance to own one.

It is with this horse and its owner in mind that Brian Peterson and the crew at Martin Saddlery created the Martin Performance saddle. With the help of the best horsemen and women in the cowhorse, reining, cutting, and performance industries, the Martin Performance saddle has emerged today as the choice of champions.

Zane Davis's Full Tool for competition (cutting horn) Zane Davis's All-Roughtout for daily training (dally horn) The Martin Performance is made for the rider who values customization and versatility. It can be made with a dally horn for steer stopping or roping, or with the cutting horn for the show pen. It can be all roughout, or fully tooled and antiqued. The possibilities are truly endless. This saddle is a fit for your one special horse, or for a barn full of horses of different ages and skill levels. Whether you are from the Great Basin of Nevada or the Woodlands of south Texas, this saddle is the canvas for what you want it to be.

A PUBLICATION OF

In an age where time moves faster and some values have been lost, we are fortunate to have the western way of life alive and thriving; where quality and craftsmanship are valued more now than they may have ever been. Horsemanship, good horses, and quality saddles will never go out of style. Martin Saddlery is, and always will be, a custom saddle shop making saddles by hand in Greenville, Texas USA.For more info on the Martin Performance saddle, call us at 888-308-2386, visit our website at martinsaddlery.com or check out the Martin Saddlery Facebook page.

Welcome FROM NILE PRESIDENT RANDY VOGELE

G

reetings! On behalf of the NILE Board of Directors, welcome to the 51st annual NILE Stock Show & Rodeo here in Billings, Montana.

With exhibitors and contestants coming from the entire United States and Canada, we continue to showcase quality events here at the NILE. I encourage you to get out and see the various aspects this week-long showcase has to offer. Youth events are what we like! The individuals that participate in these events are our future. From the Jr Fed Livestock Show/ Sale, to 4th Grade Ag Education, FFA/4-H Judging Contests, the Merit Heifer Program and Junior Cattle Shows, each of the individuals participating in these programs is the generation that will continue to grow and strengthen the agricultural industry. The ever-popular Ranch Rodeo & Dance in the Dirt will kick off on Saturday, October 13 leading us into a week-long stretch of activities. Livestock shows and sales will be throughout the week that will highlight some of the area’s premier, top-quality livestock and the individuals that raise and train them. Culminating the week, NILE continues with the area’s best rodeo, which is largely due to Powder River Rodeo and the stock they provide (Thanks Hank & Lori). The NILE is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of livestock,agricultural education, and respect for the Western culture. NILE has grown into what it is today due to the continued support of its membership base, community, exhibitors and contestants who attend this event each year. This event cannot happen without the hard-working NILE staff, committees, volunteers and YOU that work year-round to make this happen. If you see one of the staff or committee members around while you’re on the MetraPark grounds, please take a moment and thank them for the time and effort they put in to making this event successful. Thank you for coming to the 51st Annual NILE Stock Show & Rodeo. We hope you can continue to come and support a lasting tradition with the NILE.

NILE honors two with

VOLUNTEER AWARDS 2017 Volunteers of the Year Linda McCormick and Kat Pfau BY REBECCA COLNAR

T

he week-long NILE has achieved its popularity and success in a large part because of the many dedicated volunteers who handle everything from sales catalogs to organizing the Stetsons and Stilettos NILE Foundation Fundraiser. To recognize these hard-working volunteers, the NILE selects a Volunteer of the Year to recognize an individual who has tirelessly spent many hours making the NILE successful.

theirs who was active in volunteerism had a heart attack two weeks before the NILE began.

McCall Linke, equine programs director and communications director at the NILE said the Volunteer of the Year has been a special award bestowed upon a deserving helper. The award is presented to the volunteer during the NILE annual meeting in January/February.

Al stepped up to serve on the board and then served a term as president; he is still on the board. “When he became president, we helped wherever they needed us. He was also doing sales for the NILE and when he first started, it was just he and a coworker. One year there were two sales going on and the person he lined up for the weanling/ yearling horse sale got sick, so he said, ‘I know you’ve never done this before, but I need to you help with the sales.’ This was before computers, so I hand wrote all of the sale tickets.”

“There’s not a nomination process, but the board and staff discuss who has done an especially amazing job and should get an extra pat on the back,” said Linke. “Both Linda McCormick and Kat Pfau do such amazing jobs, and we couldn’t do what we do without them. We couldn’t choose between the two for 2017 so selected both the annual Volunteer of the Year Award.” Linda McCormick has been a volunteer since 1986. She became involved when her husband was working for Norwest, a company that had a membership with the NILE. “We were new to town so we thought volunteering at the NILE would be a great way to get involved. There were new young couples as well as seasoned NILE members so it was a good mix of people. We realized quickly that the NILE is a great organization that was near and dear to our hearts.” The 53-year-old, who was raised on a farm and ranch in Scobey, says being involved in 4-H and FFA provided her with an appreciation for agriculture and competitions. McCormick explains that she and her husband, Al, threw themselves into volunteering when a friend of 22

“We stepped in and started helping and now it seems we’ve been involved forever. When we first started, I was in charge of decorating the hospitality room. I still do that and try to make it inviting. Since the NILE takes place in the fall, I try to have a fall theme,” McCormick says.

A week before the 2017 NILE, McCormick was asked if she would be willing to set up the Heritage Room to commemorate the NILE’s 50th anniversary. “I said sure, so I stripped the office of every photo, bronze and every piece of NILE history,” the ambitious volunteer recalls. “I took it over to the METRA and set up the room as a place to educate people about the history of the NILE, what they do and how the organization was involved. I had president’s photos and looked to see what different clothing I could find throughout NILE history.” McCormick attributes her long tenure as a NILE volunteer to the friendly people at the organization and during the event. “You go for months where you don’t see anyone and then you see them at this event and you catch up and hear about people’s families. It’s like a mini family reunion and you’re not even related to them.”

The 37-year-old says she loves helping youth and youth organizations. “I got a scholarship from the NILE as a junior in high school that helped me pay for school, so now I have the capacity to give back to help young people in agriculture achieve great things and be better kids.” Although her “real job” as a teacher in automotive technology at the City College, and the department chair for welding and transportation, her time volunteering is spent working with youth and animals. “I worked at the Montana fair for a while and helped with the animals with 4-H and FFA, and was co-superintendent for the FFA animals at the fair.” At the Montana Fair, she honed her skills with the computer program for data entry, so when the NILE went to the same program as the Montana Fair, Pfau said she’d volunteer her time.

Kat Pfau and two of the reasons she volunteers with the NILE.

“I fell in love with it,” she says enthusiastically. “I love being able to work with such a great organization. I grew up showing sheep and cattle as a youth, but I don’t live on a ranch.” She said the great challenge of the job is learning the computer program and getting it streamlined during the sale. “It absolutely has to work properly to ensure we have a smoothly running sale,” she explains. Pfau also helps with the NILE Foundation Fundraiser, Stetson and Stilettos, checking people in when the arrive, then checking them out with their auction purchases. The generally soldout event focuses on the scholarship aspect of the NILE foundation. Donations from this event add to a scholarship fund, ensuring that the future generations will get the support they need to pursue higher education. Reflecting on why she enjoys her time with the NILE so much, she says, “I really like helping an organization that makes youth better leaders and advocates for their community. Anything I can give back to help youth is amazing.” As for Kat Pfau, Linke said the NILE couldn’t run without her. “She is so knowledgeable about our Show Works program which encompasses data entry for the livestock shows and sales. She is a guru and a whiz, and she makes it run smoothly. Her knowledge is invaluable.”

any of the best cattle handlers are black and white, or maybe copper, or merle, or even blue. Cow dogs have proven for many years that they are a driving force and righthand man for cowboys, horsemen, and cattlemen. The NILE has joined with John Rose and the National Cattledog Association to offer a stock dog trial this year to demonstrate the talent and usefulness of cowdogs. It is also a NCA Mountain Qualifying trial.

TRI-STATE LIVESTOCK NEWS

The NILE Stock Dog Trial will be in the Super Barn Saturday, Oct. 13 and Sunday, Oct. 14 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Rose has been part of demonstrations in the last ten years at the NILE, and he is excited to transition to offering a stock dog trial. “It’s all natural instinct,” Rose said. “We don’t teach them dogs how to work, we teach them the ‘when’ and ‘where.’ The handler comes in with the discipline and communication.” Each dog and handler fall into a particular category, either open, for


professionals; nursery, for dogs aged 30 months or younger; intermediate, for dog owners who have received a certain amount of clout within trials but not yet at a professional level; or novice, for those beginning stock dog trials. Each class will run each day and the trial will be limited to 75 dogs. Typical stock dog trial obstacles revolve around penning cattle or walking them through varying patterns and layouts of gates. For more advanced dogs and handlers, they may be required to walk cattle into an open corral, hold them for a moment, then let two out one side and two out the other. “There is a list of about 50 obstacles, which we will pick based on the difficulty,” Rose said. “We might have a pen or stock trailer to load cattle in.” Points are awarded on the level of completion of the obstacle. For instance, if the dog has three cattle to work with, and they push all three through a particular obstacle, as specified to do so, they may be awarded 10 points per cow, 30 points, the maximum, for the obstacle. The trial run is also timed, so if there are five obstacles and several handlers receive the maximum amount of points, 150, the handler with the quickest times wins. Handlers that may have completed the course but didn’t get as many points doesn’t score as well as higher points. “It’s very good to watch. Runs are typically six to eight minutes, so we’re changing cattle, handler, and dog often,” Rose said. “We like to set a time frame that we think is pretty reasonable. I’d like to see 20 to 30 percent get full points.” Rose uses his border collies for more than just trials; they are his hired men for moving 1,000 to 1,500 A PUBLICATION OF

yearlings around his ranch, Rose Cattle Company, in Three Forks, Montana. Juan Reyes, of MR Angus Ranch headquartered in Wheatland, Wyoming, also depends heavily on his dogs to be his co-workers. During this interview, Reyes was moving 320 yearling bulls to pasture while surrounded by the neighbors’ heifers and all he had was the assistance of his three border collies--an extension of his arm, he said. “We wouldn’t be running the MR Angus Ranch with the numbers we have without these dogs,” he said. “To me, border collies are the smartest breed around in the working cow dog department. They are very intelligent and can adapt to your management.” Reyes shows in the open division and also has demonstrated his working dogs at the NILE and other events. He treats his dogs the same whether showing or working. To him, they should react and obey the same whether in a pasture or arena. “I don’t ask them to do anything different in a trial than I do here on the ranch,” he said. “I don’t like them to be particularly mechanical; my dogs have to work a mile or two away from me, so I want them to do what they were bred to do without my being involved.” Trials can be a stepping stone for ranchers hoping to use working dogs on their ranch. “Lately, it’s getting so hard in production agriculture to find the right type of help to work livestock. I think these dogs are very beneficial to ranchers that would like to learn,” Reyes said. “Having dogs that can work livestock in a low stress environment is very important to me. If we can educate the public to use them, it would be a great benefit to anyone.” TRI-STATE LIVESTOCK NEWS |

RADIANT RODEO returns for second year STORY BY HANNAH JOHLMAN

Several different stations are set up in the show ring in the ExpoCenter at MetraPark where kids are encouraged to participate in stations of their choice on their own time.

“Of course, we’d like to see that grow and have more inclusion but we’re happy if even just one kid shows up.”

Last year was the first year the event was held at the NILE and it went off without a hitch according to McCall Linke, equine programs director and communications director at the NILE, who has been involved with similar programs in the past. When the idea of bringing a special needs rodeo to the NILE emerged, she was excited to see the project through.

“All I saw was positive, nothing but smiles and laughing from everybody around,” Keith says. “All the kids had a great time and they kept coming back to stations for more.”

rodeo with one goal and no added money, the Radiant Rodeo brings both the stock show and rodeo to special needs youth in Yellowstone County and beyond, focusing on just what the name suggests: radiance in the arena.

“It’s something that all of us felt strongly about,” she says of herself and others on the NILE board of directors. “It’s a way to include these kids in the agricultural world. It’s a rodeo but we incorporate a stock show portion so we have a station with sheep and goats, and last year they pulled in some really tame steers so the kids could practice showing some animals.” While the bucking machine can be intimidating, volunteers noted the confidence it would give kids as they grew brave enough to try it. After one time, many came back for more rides.

STOCK SHOW & RODEO

Just as the name says, the main goal for the rodeo is to radiate smiles and positive energy throughout the arena and, for volunteers like Keith Rausch and his wife, Neala, the event was not lacking in radiance.

Although he noticed that some kids were a little reluctant to participate at first, especially on the bucking machine that Keith was helping run, he says that it didn’t take long of watching other kids enjoying themselves before everyone was having a good time. “I didn’t see anybody having a bad time and we are absolutely helping again this year,” he says.

Other stations at the event include stick horse barrel racing, coloring, tactile tubs of agricultural products, farm animal toys, a bucking machine, horse petting, face painting and dummy roping.

After many hours of planning and organizing the event, this year, Linke is handing the reins over to Randy Vogele, the current president of the NILE board of directors, who has also been a strong supporter of the event since its inception.

“Last year we didn’t set goals,” Linke says. They just wanted someone to show up. The final count was 31 participants and 32 volunteers. “We were very pleased with that,” she says.

“Really this event is about giving back to the community and giving these kids some experiences that they don’t normally get the opportunity to have,” Vogele says, adding that he saw

The stations will be run by rodeo queens, clowns, livestock exhibitors, ropers, and riders who are there to help and encourage the participants.

a lot of confidence built in the participants throughout the stations. “There was a little boy, eight or nine years old, and it took him about an hour before he was able to get on the bucking machine, but after his fourth ride, he was finally able to have a good time. That was neat to see something like that, it was a confidence builder.” Vogele, who has been a volunteer with the Special Olympics for the past 19 years, says that it was an easy fit for him to take over the Radiant Rodeo but he gives all the credit to the events success to Linke. “McCall had everything lined out, for me it’s just a matter of getting some direction and lining some things up for people,” Vogele says. The planning process was a complicated one, full of check lists, questions and a lot of help from other special needs organizations. “I sat down with the director of Eagle Mount, a big organization in Montana that supports people with disabilities, they’re well known here in Billings for their ski trips to Red Lodge and in Great Falls they have an equine program,” Linke says. “We really picked their brains of what to expect.” In her mind, Linke was expecting to have stations with 15-minute time limits per station, they would blow a whistle and rotate the stations to keep everybody on schedule. She was quickly advised instead to

offer the stations and let the participants flow freely from station to station. “If they want to start with showing sheep and spend the whole time there, we let them,” she says. “If they want to rotate from face painting to dummy roping, back to face painting, we let them meander on their own schedule. If the bucking bull scares them, we don’t force it.” Many partnerships are involved to make the event work. Through partnering with the Exceptional Rodeo, a similar special needs rodeo in Great Falls, Montana, Linke was able to gain first-hand experience as a volunteer and borrow the bucking machine. Another partnership that Linke has arranged involves using sheep and goats from the fourth grade ag education event that runs from Monday through Wednesday, which works well, since the Radiant Rodeo is on Wednesday afternoon. Participants are encouraged to pre-register by September 29 to get a free rodeo ticket, but registration will be available on the day of the rodeo. More information is available on the NILE website and Facebook pages. “This event is so important to us,” Linke says. “Agriculture is the number one industry in Montana and in Yellowstone County and the NILE’s mission statement is to preserve and embrace the western way of life, so of course we want to share how great agriculture and the western way of life is to everyone, especially these kids.” TRI-STATE LIVESTOCK NEWS |

he horse industry is changing, and the NILE is keeping up with the times.

And changing it up this year, Linke says the show will be offered to all breeds, not only AQHA members.

The newest, hottest event in the horse industry is the Versatility Ranch Horse competition, which will be added to the NILE’s lineup this year.

“We’ll have AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse classes, but also all breeds Versatility Ranch Horse classes because there’s not really an opportunity for paints, appaloosas and all the other breeds to come in and show at the NILE,” Linke says. “So we decided to open that up to get some new contestants, new horses and new spectators.”

“We got some push from the AQHA that, as different events fluctuate in what is the most popular, they’re seeing the trend that Versatility Ranch Horse competitions are just big so we decided to jump on that,” says McCall Linke, equine programs director for the NILE.

The ultimate goal of the NILE though is always geared towards the scholarship program and for youth to be eligible for NILE


The AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse All-Around is a coveted title. To be in the running, riders must compete in ranch riding, cattle and conformation classes.

scholarships, they have to show NILE involvement. “We have a lot of youth involved in the livestock showing part of the program and not a lot in the horse showing,” Linke says. “So, we also thought this was a great opportunity to offer that to kids who are involved with horses and later become eligible for our scholarship program.” The Versatility Ranch Horse competition was designed by the American Quarter Horse Association to promote the athletic ability and versatility of a horse through five different classes: ranch riding, ranch trail, ranch reining, ranch cow work and ranch conformation.

competition. “They added a ranch riding class into the regular AQHA and it became so popular that they started looking at the versatility classes.” The competition showcases three aspects of a versatile ranch horse through ranch riding classes, working cattle classes and a conformation class. Because the goal is to showcase a solid ranch horse, extra decoration or silver is not encouraged and could cause penalties. “You’re not allowed to braid the manes and tails, we’re not looking for extra decoration,” Randall says. “It should be a good working saddle, you can have a little silver on the headstall or saddle but it should be something you should be able to go out and work on the ranch.” For the ranch riding class, contestants are run individually while judges looking for a relaxed and responsive horse

through walking, trotting and loping in both directions and in extended gaits to show that a horse would be comfortable to ride all day long on the ranch. Obstacles in the ranch trail class reflect those found every day on the ranch. Judges look for a responsive and well-mannered horse that can navigate the obstacles correctly. “You have to open the metal gate, we don’t use the rope gate that seems to be so popular today and natural logs are encouraged,” says Randall. During the ranch reining class, judges look for horses who are able to perform basic handling maneuvers throughout a reining pattern. There are multiple parts for the ranch cow work class. Amateur or youth level competitors must box the cow, work the cow down the fence, box it at the opposite end of the arena and then drive the cow back down the fence. For the open or cowboy competitors, the class requires roping or circling the cow as well. The final class, after judges have seen the horses work, is the ranch conformation class where judges are looking for well-balanced, structurally correct horses with adequate muscling. Horses are shown in good working halters. Contestants can enter one class or all classes, but if they don’t compete in at least one class in all three areas, riding, working cattle or conformation, they will not be eligible for the all-around title, which Randall says comes with bragging rights.

WYOMING NIGHT STORY BY RACHEL GABEL

T

he Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) has partnered with the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture and Natural Resources for the inaugural Wyoming Night at the NILE to kick off the week-long stock show and rodeo.

The Ranch Rodeo as part of Wyoming Night at the NILE will feature the returning team from 77 Bootheel in Wyoming.

This year marks the inaugural year of Wyoming Night at the NILE. The event includes a reception, a Brown and Gold seating section during the Ranch Rodeo, and the Dance in the Dirt featuring Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘Em Boys.

McCall Linke, equine programs director and communications director for the NILE, said the night honors alumni, supporters, current students, and fans of the University of Wyoming but also those who love the state itself. “If you’re a fan of the state, a fan of the University, we welcome you to come on down to Wyoming Night at the NILE,” Linke said. The NILE hosts a number of University of Wyoming students as interns, according to Sarah Kauer, University of Wyoming College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Wyoming Night is an opportunity to bring together UW alumni, supporters, and students for what Kauer anticipates will be a night of celebration and camaraderie.

“Supporting University of Wyoming students and interns at the NILE offers great opportunity for networking for students and alumni alike,” Kauer said. There will be a reception prior to the ranch rodeo that is open to all but focused on alumni and prospective University of Wyoming students. Linke said there is an active alumni group in Montana that is partnering on the reception. During the ranch rodeo, there will be a section of seats, Section M, designated as the Brown and Gold section. Fans wishing to be seated in the section to take part in cheers and to receive event “swag” can request to be seated in that area. Linke said the University of Wyoming fight song will be played as well. Shelly Gams, University of Wyoming Alumni Association Board of Directors for the state of Montana, said they’ve reserved a block of seats and hopes that number is blown out of the water. She said about Montana is home to over 2,500 alumni and many of them are in the Billings area. Both the state

of Wyoming and the university’s alumni are important to the city of Billings and it is her hope that the group will continue to grow. Following the ranch rodeo, fans can attend the Dance in the Dirt featuring Kyle Shobe and the Walk ’Em Boys. Based in Lewistown, Mont., Shobe is an auctioneer, rodeo announcer, and a graduate of the University of Wyoming.

“It’s all Wyoming,” Gams said. Based in Billings, Mont., the NILE added a ranch rodeo to serve as a kickoff to the lineup of events. The professional rodeo has long been known as one of Montana’s most prestigious and the ranch rodeo draws winning teams from sanctioned ranch rodeos around the region. According to the event’s website, the NILE Ranch Rodeo Finals were established in 2009, allowing ranch cowboys to compete for top honors as the NILE series champion team and, by doing so, become eligible to compete at the Western States Ranch Rodeo Association Finals in Winnemucca, Nevada.

GRANDFATHERED IN Clint Casterline’s horses a valuable part of the NILE for two decades STORY BY SAVANNA SIMMONS

Clint Casterline leads one of his weanlings through the sale ring at the NILE in 2016.

C

lint Casterline remembers Joe Goggins was the auctioneer at the first NILE horse sale he participated in. As he led that first set of colts from his stallion, Triple A Quincy into the ring, Bill Parker, the announcer, said every one of them was a stud prospect. Casterline, of Wolf Point, Montana, is one of the longest consistent consigners at the NILE. Every year for 20 years he has sold four to five weanlings and yearlings at the Billings sale.

His horses are now spread from along the East Coast--Virginia, New York, and Georgia, to southern states such as Kentucky and Oklahoma, and as far west as Washington. Emmah Duvall from Virginia ended up with one of Casterline’s horses, a red roan called Tiny Tim, that was purchased through the NILE sale. While it is nearly impossible for Casterline to keep track of where all his horses go, Duvall reached out to him and shares her successes, including

winning the International Barrel Racing Association National Finals Youth 4-D Championship in 2017. Many of his futurity-eligible colts find homes with their siblings with repeat purchasers such as Lance and Becky Bateman in Etna, Wyoming, or Glenn Bond, who splits his time between west Arizona and Utah. “People don’t realize the effort and knowledge and time Clint has put in his breeding program to get this good line of horses put together,” Bond said. “He has worked at it, studied it; he has bred, he has tried. He has failed and tried again and now he’s got it.” Casterline didn’t reach the place he has within his breeding program without his share of trials, starting with his dad letting him know that the family ranch doesn’t have enough room for cattle and horses after he had already established a modest, but fine AQHA herd. “I started right when I was in high school with a few head of mares,” he said. “I got going with registered mares and bought a stud called Rillito Jay and my first brood mare was an own daughter of Classy Bar.” He lost his stud after three years due to compaction, and he replaced him with Frontier Dun, out of Frontier Town. “He had a lot of run in him. I used that horse for five or six years, but he couldn’t see a cow if he run over her. I moved him, and dad said we don’t have room on this place for cows and horses, so I had a dispersal sale, and I’ve had a bellyache ever since.”

The ultimatum didn’t damper Casterline’s determination, and he started rebuilding his herd through Don Stern’s sale in Bowman, Montana, for several years out of high school. He obtained a stallion, Jimmy Jet, a colt out of Flick Bar and a Robin Jet-bred mare, whose blood is still running through some mares in Casterline’s program today, some four decades later. Paul’s Double Pass was added to the breeding program as well. He was thought to be a son of Caballero Gambler, a world champion halter horse, but AQHA reached out to Casterline and let him know that he shouldn’t be getting grey offspring from the sorrel stallion and deemed his registration invalid. He was actually out of a grey stallion called Ben Levan.

“That was another hardship that hit me pretty hard,” Casterline said, but his luck turned around to a degree. He acquired Triple A Quincy, a grandson of Joe Quincy born in 1995. “He was probably one of the only horses at that time that could win halter in the morning and calf roping in the evening,” he said. He lost Triple A Quincy about four years ago after many years of lacing his blood through Casterline colts. A Sure Doc, a 2004-model palomino stud with Poco Tivio prominent on the top half of his papers and Easy Jet, Bugs on Time, and Pie in the Sky on the bottom, joined the Casterline herd.

“There was a yellow horse that the Batemans bought. He was a son of A Sure Doc and out of an old mare that we’d rode that I was in love with that I didn’t want to consign to the NILE when he was a baby, but I consigned him and the Batemans bought him,” Casterline said. “They showed him all over the country, then sent him to a calf horse trainer. Now, there’s a kid roping calves in high school rodeos off this yellow horse. I’m still proud of that horse.” Splashing gray throughout the pasture, Casterline purchased Frenchmans Bar Guy, a son of Frenchmans Guy with Leo on his dam’s side. “That’s a horse that has done me real good,” he said. “We all know what Frenchmans Guy horses have done.

A lot of people think they are only barrel racing horses, but if they are bred on those cow bred mares, they’ll get on their belly and crawl after one. I’m just in love with the Frenchmans horses.” At 18 years old, Frenchmans Bar Guy currently has an infection over his tail, but Casterline has been doctoring him to ensure his career doesn’t end here. Casterline has been breeding his Frenchmans Bar Guy’s daughters to Class Affirmed, a 2001 grandson of Streakin Six and First Down Dash, a son of Dash for Cash, to “get them a little more gas in the tank,” he said. “ You can slow a fast horse down, but you can’t make a slow horse go fast. You’ve got to have cow in those fast horses.”

As a grandson of High Brown Cat and a great-grandson of Peptoboonsmal, Blue Cats DR offers a variety of royal AQHA bloodlines to what Casterline has to offer. “I breed horses for 100 percent performance and disposition. If you can’t get along with them, there’s no use in selling them to someone else,” he said. “The Lord helped me raise horses so good that I don’t have to lie about them.” His mares aren’t to be overlooked, however, as they have some of the biggest names in the AQHA industry on their papers. “My philosophy is you’ve got to have a good broodmare


band,” he said. “You can use popular and good studs, but if the mares aren’t any good, you’re wasting your time.” Bond and Casterline have known each other for 20 years, and while Bond hasn’t always been able to get his hands on Casterline colts, he has acquired several recently. They’re horses, the 78-year-old said, that will put his training program on the map. “I bought them last year as weanlings; they are Royal-bred fillies. I have sold horses for Clint so I know what these horses are valued at,” Bond said. “These horses break and train so easy, they will make a trainer a name.” Bond plans to show his fillies in the NILE futurities, something that brings great joy to Casterline. “My colts are scattered across America, and I’m just thankful,” he said. “It makes me feel good when they bring them back to the futurities. I’ve always enjoyed the NILE; it’s a fun time to get a break and see a lot of old friends you don’t get a chance to see.” At 65 years old, Casterline has no plans to retire, though his knees decided to. He is the “lone ranger” as he refers to himself, and he is always happy to have grandkids visit and help. Casterline will continue to breed fine performance horses to bring the NILE sale as long as he is able. “He’s a Christian—he loves the Lord Jesus— and he’s a family man,” Bond said. “Those are the two most outstanding things about Clint Casterline.”

NILE in Billings, Mont. In addition to three letters of recommendation and three references, a personal essay, and a NILE Junior membership, applicants must submit a 3 to 5-minute YouTube video introducing themselves to the committee and giving them a glimpse into their facilities and, ultimately, their ability to care for the heifer that could be potentially in their care. Mork has a background in horsemanship, which she highlighted as she introduced herself to the committee.


LEFT: The 2016 Overall Top Herdsman award winner was Garrett Jewett of Kalispell, Mont. Jewett’s heifer was donated by Sidwell Ranch in Columbus, Mont. RIGHT: The 2016 Champion Showman was Hanna Butcher, Manhattan, Mont. Butcher’s heifer was donated by Klompien Red Angus of Manhattan, Mont.

Mork, who will be a senior this fall, received one of 23 Merit Heifers in 2017, hers donated by nearby Redland Red Angus, Hysham, Mont. Mork quickly made a connection with Jen Moke at Redland Red Angus when she first visited to select her heifer. Program participants are paired with a donor and make arrangements to select their heifer with guidance from the donor, in November or December. “They helped me every step of the way,” she said. “I didn’t know anything about picking out a heifer and Jen Moke showed me all about it and helped me pick out her favorite heifer and that was the one I ended up taking home.”

According to Shelby Shaw, NILE Livestock Department Manager and Youth Education Director, the winter months are spent halter breaking the heifers. In spring, heifers are bred and exhibited at jackpot shows, and summer finds the exhibitors at their county fairs. When late summer and fall arrive, the exhibitors are spending their time preparing to exhibit their heifers at the NILE. Monthly reports are submitted throughout the year in addition to record books, judged as part of the year-end competition. In addition, recipients also compete in an interview competition, all accumulating points toward the grand prize of Top Herdsman

“On show day, there is a heifer show where we crown the top two Grand and Reserve heifers but we also have a showmanship competition, where we crown our top four showmen,” Shaw said. Following the show, awards are given for top record books, top interview, overall herdsmen, and top calcutta. Each donor is sold on a calcutta and checks are awarded at the end of the show. Exhibitors, at the conclusion of the program, receive ownership papers. Each recipient has the option to again return in following years with the heifer and her offspring in a variety of combinations that allow the exhibitor to showcase his or her accomplishments after taking ownership of the heifer. While showing the heifer is one of the advantages of participation in the program, Shaw said they’re looking for young people who are interested in the beef industry who will keep the heifer to build their herd through good management. Record keeping, timely breeding, sire selection, and raising the heifer are all vital aspects of the program as well. “We’re looking for those kids who will continue to push forward in an ever-changing beef industry,” she said. Moke and Mork ran into come challenges while trying to breed the heifer and Moke made several attempts to artificially inseminate the heifer for a successful pregnancy, which they eventually achieved. Mork attributes much of her knowledge to the program and to her newfound mentor and was able to attend Redland’s bull sale and even exhibit at the local fair with Moke’s children. While at the county fair, Moke’s two children and Mork earned first through third places in their heifer class. Mork said her knowledge of cattle production has grown deeper through the process and said what she has questions about, her donor is ready and willing to help her learn. Along with her Merit Heifer classmates, Mork completed monthly reports themed toward a

Monthly themes begin in January and include anatomy, nutrition, reproduction, sire selection, natural breeding versus artificial insemination, promotion of the donor and heifer, a wrap up of decisions the exhibitor made regarding the heifer’s management, diseases and prevention, post-breeding and calving nutrition, and marketing calves. During the process, Mork’s interest in bovine reproduction and embryology has been piqued and Moke has helped her secure a summer internship next year with an embryologist. Class of 2020 applications will be live on the website (thenile.org) in March of 2019 with a June 30, 2019 deadline for youth exhibitors interested in participating in the program. The program is not limited to the state of Montana and is open to youth ages 12-16 as of June 30 of the current year.

TRI-STATE LIVESTOCK NEWS


A

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 back one year later as a bred replacement

heifer for exhibit at the NILE Stock Show in October. 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.

(406) 794-1862 (406) 208-9718 (406) 670-7825 Must call 24 hours in advance.

Phone lines are provided on a first come first served basis. Please be prepared to give your contact information, lot numbers and description, budget, and payment information.

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,

This filly’s dam is one of the few mares we have purchased. We feel very blessed to own her as you could not ask for a better attitude and she is beautiful as well. She quickly became one of our favorites. This pretty buckskin filly is her first foal by our stallion. She should be very athletic and already catches everyone’s eye. We should be keeping her around as she would fit in nicely to our program but can’t keep them all. Don’t miss your chance to own a good one with that pretty buckskin color.

This is a fancy bay roan filly with a pretty head, straight legs, four black feet, big-hipped and that cool bay roan color. We have had her dam for 18 years and she is 22 this year. We have ridden several offspring out of Ima Little Tigress and they are all super-minded, cowy, and athletic. We have won on them at the ranch horse competitions, ropings and they are super on the ranch. We are riding a 3-year-old full brother to this filly right now, who is a dun roan and he is just as nice as you can make one. This filly will be a top prospect to cowhorse, rope, ranch or whatever you choose, then breed her. AQHA Ranching Heritage Eligible.

This is one fancy buckskin stud colt! This colt is going to be a top prospect to go rope, cowhorse, ranch or whatever you choose. He is going to be stout-made, with lots of bone, straight legs, four black feet, good withers and a heavy hip. He is going to be super-minded and athletic. We kept the full brother to him last year that looks identical to this one. His dam, Docs Dakota Peach, has a super disposition and this colt will too. We have ridden several of her offspring and they all have great dispositions, cowsense and make great rope and cowhorses. Taylor Jess Tivio was a top Reined Cowhorse Sire as well. This colt is going to be a good one! Ranching Heritage Eligible. A PUBLICATION OF

Definitely an exceptional, one-of-a-kind gelding here. He’s roped thousands in the branding pen, in the feedlot as well as outside in a lot of different terrain. He’s the go-to horse to sort on and load semis, he’s roping on the heel side, he’s got a lot of heart and is a serious athlete. He’s the one I ride when the kids come to work as I know I can handle anything on him that arises. When my wife goes out alone on this gelding I know he will bring her home no matter what. She’s also learning how to team rope on him with the switch and he puts her where she needs to be every time. Our kids go out to catch, brush and saddle him, he’s a kind hearted gelding for sure.

Big Country is a 7-year-old, 15.2 grade gelding quarter horse that has been the “go to” horse for the past several years. Just like his name implies, he has seen plenty of big country. Big Country has trailed cows to the mountains, gathered wild cows from the Wind River Indian range, and been used extensively to doctor calves, tag calves, and sort pairs. He is a solid rope horse that has been used for competitive ranch rodeos and ranch ropings, he has been used both by us and lent out to others for brandings and ranch rodeos. He runs hard to cows and he holds solid at the end of the rope. He rides smooth and eats up the country. Big Country is a great asset to our ranch and will be missed.

This 8-year-old sorrel gelding with special markings by Dual Dash is my last personal saddle horse (by persuasion from doctors and family). My granddaughter broke him as a 4-H project with great success, winning many ribbons for two years. He is super gentle, and thinks he is a “black lab.” Leroy is a ranch horse deluxe but has also drug out elk, and been used by young riders. He has been doing ranch work this summer with Josey Sutton. His grandsire, My Leroy Brown, has produced many speed horses and NFR quality rope horses. He is a good one! UTD on shots, wormer and Coggins, and is shod. www.burnsranchhorses.com 6/26/2014

CD OLENA MERADAS KITTY

Here is a consistent, gentle, hardworking ranching/rodeo prospect. Started roping and working cattle only 16 months ago, picked it up quickly and eagerly. Used to bring in stock, rope on the heeling side and occasionally pick up broncs all summer of the 2017 West Yellowstone Rodeo. Used to work stock and run back cattle at a few 2018 PRCA rodeos. Has also done plenty of miles leading dude ranch guests out on trail rides. He is not completely finished in competitive roping, but this is only due to lack of time on the owner’s part. Cowboy would make an excellent ranch or trail horse for intermediate youth to experienced adult riders or could be finished on the heeling side. Crosses water and rivers with ease, sure footed on trails, hills and rocks. Cowboy is a one-owner horse, he is only being sold due to owner’s lack of time. Cowboy is too good of a horse to sit around and not be used! This guy will give you his all every single day and will never stop working for you!

I sent him to Ken McNabb and his top trainer, Lisa Gentile, rodeoed Jorge for 90 days. I’m 60 yrs old and Jorge has been my personal saddle horse. I never thought or planned I’d ever have to part with Jorge, but my husband’s health is forcing us to make big changes. He is UTD on vaccinations and guaranteed sound.

She was started as a 2-year-old and ridden by Justin Morgan. Peanut has been used in all aspects of ranching, but she really shines as a sorter and a roper. She has been used all spring sorting in an alley and for sorting pairs. Additionally, she works the end of a rope very well. She has been used already at several brandings this year and she holds her own. She has a lot of life ahead of her, and would make a great sorting horse or roping horse, or anything you want to do.

Bronson has been riden down busy highways, used to move and gather cow/calf pairs, been in the mountains, through rivers/creeks, across bridges, over deadfall and rides double and bareback. He goes where you point him and takes everything in stride. He’s been exposed to llamas, chickens, equipment, heavy traffic, dogs, cats, kids on bicycles and 4-wheelers. He’s good with a rope all around him and has ponied other horses. Bronson is broke to ride, soft in his sides and mouth, will sidepass and has the buttons.

Titan is an incredible pony that our kids have outgrown. Our kids go out and catch him, brush him, clean his feet, saddle and bridle him all on their own and we don’t worry about a thing. They’ve ridden him in brush and grass up to his belly and he’s always brought them home. The kids create their own trail courses and play with him all day doing their many tricks while walking over poles and bridges and roping the dummy. We pack him along to roping practice and the kids pen back the cattle. He has a great face and flexion, he’s a super eye catching pony and has always been a very respectful guy.

Riveted construction means Wilson aluminum gooseck livestock trailers are more rugged for off-road use. They flex when they need to without breaking costly and time consuming welds. Once back out on the highway, you will hardly realize the trailer is back there. Stronger gates, the industry’s best floor and your lowest cost of ownership are even more reasons to buy Wilson. If you’ve got livestock to haul, make sure you’ve brought a Wilson along for the ride.
