Just the Way It Is April 2013 by Ben Clements And when you fall back down, keep on remembering,

T

he weather is warming up most places. It is time to get back outside and start doing things. With the warmer weather comes the spring rain and thunderstorms. I was up one night recently, unable to sleep. It just so happened there was a thunder and lightening storm. I was glad for the rain. I am one of those people who is not intimidated by such a storm, but I come from a family that is, so I can understand. As I sat in the chair and flipped through the TV channels, I came across GAC and there was a music video on. The song was “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” by Gary Allan. As I listened to the song it made me think and it was as if God was speaking directly to me from all avenues. Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain) By Gary Allan I saw you standing in the middle of the thunder and lightning, I know you’re feelin’ like you just can’t win but you’re tryin’, It’s hard to keep on keepin’ on when you’re bein’ pushed around, Don’t even know which way is up, just keep spinnin’ down, round, down, Every storm runs, runs out of rain, just like Every dark night turns into day, Every heartache’ll fade away, just like Every storm runs, runs out of rain, So hold your head up and tell yourself that there’s something more, walk out that door, Go find a new rose, don’t be afraid of the thorns, cuz we all have thorns, Put your feet up to the edge, put your face in the wind,

Every storm runs, runs out of rain, just like Every dark night turns into day, Every heartache’ll fade away, just like Every storm runs, runs out of rain, It’s gonna run out of pain, It’s gonna run out of sting, It’s gonna leave you alone, It’s gonna set you free, set you free, Every storm runs, runs out of rain, just like Every dark night turns into day, Every heartache’ll fade away, just like Every storm runs, runs out of rain, It’s gonna set you free, It’s gonna run out of pain, It’s gonna set you free We all get bogged down in life and feel like every way we turn is a dead end. Everyone is demanding something from us and though we keep trying and trying, we get nowhere. We find ourselves in a “storm” and it seems as if it will not stop. But, you know what? “Every storm does run out of rain, and every dark night turns into day.” It is not all bad, if we just hold our heads up and force ourselves to stay focused on the light and the truth. Things will not always go our way and things will not always turn out the way we want. If we keep kicking and moving forward we will be okay in the end. There is a bigger plan out there and one that we don’t always understand because we are right in the middle of it. Just the other day, I borrowed my wife’s car and when I got back home and parked it, I did not turn the key all the way off. As the car sat overnight, the battery slowly drained its charge. When it was time to start it up again the battery was dead, the car was going nowhere. This did not mean the car was ruined forever. I hooked the battery up to the battery charger and in no time it was

as good as new. All of us need a recharge from time to time, a fresh perspective. We need to realize that if we are being drained, strained and stressed to the point we cannot function, there is a battery charger nearby. There is someone there to help and someone there who cares. The challenge, for me at least, is allowing someone to assist me. Don’t be afraid to accept help. Don’t be afraid to “walk out that door and go find a new rose. Don’t be afraid of the thorns. Put your feet up to the edge and face the wind.” Jesus is with us every step of the way and will help us face every situation and carry us through. It doesn’t matter what your battle is, you can beat it and you can outlast it, because every storm does run out of rain. We must all go through storms and those storms are what makes us stronger. Just like the plant that is rooted in the ground, the wind will blow and the rain will beat down, but when it is all over, it is that rain that gives us nourishment and strength. When we are being blown around and feeling like there is no way to hold on, there is a way. Jesus is the earth beneath us and if we keep our roots firmly planted in His soil and His way, we will flourish and grow. Never let go of God and He will see you through any and everything. When it is all said and done and you reflect back on the “storm” you will see how much stronger you are because you went through it. Your roots are more firmly planted and God never left you because He is always that ground beneath you. The night does always turn into day and that is the Lord’s promise to us. Keep your chin up and keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. We can be blown around and run down, but we can always be recharged. Put your faith in God and know that no matter how bad it gets, He will not leave you, you can get through it all, and that is just the way it is....

Which Headers Enter Which Divisions

B

oy, have I got charts for you this month! And the good news is, with so many charts, I won’t be writing my usual plethora of verbosity. Now doesn’t that thoroughly warm all the little cockles of your heart? But some verbosity is warranted as I must explain to you just what all these charts represent. Okay, here we go: The data in each of these column charts was taken from all the USTRC sanctioned ropings held during the 2012 season, not including the Regionals or the Cinch National Finals. Each chart represents one of the USTRC’s eight standard divisions, Open through #8 Pick/Draw. The basics of each chart are the same. The x-axis (that’s the horizontal one that goes along the

bottom of the chart) is the classification number of the headers entered in the particular division refered to in the title at the top of the chart. The y-axis, the vertical one, is the number of header entries over the course of the season. I repeat, these are header ENTRIES, not individual headers. As you all know, a roper in a sanctioned roping can enter a given division up to four times. Take a look at the first chart for the Open Division. The tallest column in the chart sits on top of the classification #7. It means that there are more #7 header entries (523) in the Open Division than any other header classification number. Second in the Open are #9 header entries (417) closely followed by #8 entries (411). You’ll notice that all the charts include elite numbers.

989 Unique Ropers Entered 70 Different #15 Events for a Total of 3,287 Entries


12-14 By the Numbers_Layout 1 3/1/13 1:33 PM Page 13

CAVEAT: These numbers are not exact but they are a very good portrayal. But here is the reason why they are not exact. My data for ropers provides what the roper’s classification number was at the end of the season. Therefore, those ropers whose numbers were either raised or lowered during the season would not be accurately represented in these charts. To adjust for this fact, for these charts I eliminated the following records: headers whose classification numbers exceeded the cap for those divisions that have caps and the headers that were on teams whose number combination exceeded the division classification. The assumption in both cases was that the number or numbers of either or both ropers had probably been raised during the season. Since I had no way of knowing which one, I just eliminated them from the records. The result is that these numbers are not precise but the ratios most likely are.

Header Entries in #13 2012 Sanctioned Ropings by Header Handicap Number

1,646 Unique Ropers Entered 70 Different #13 Events for a Total of 4,661 Entries

At the bottom of each chart you will find you will find three numbers for each division, (1) the number of unique ropers who roped in the division, (2) the total number of sanctioned events entered and (3) the total number of header entries. Remember that numbers for one and two are going to be less than the actual number since I eliminated the records of ropers that probably had their numbers bumped. For example, in the Open chart you will see that there were 503 headers over the course of 2012 that entered 61 Open ropings a total of 2,094 times, not counting the eliminated records. While there is nothing here that you all probably did not intrinsically know, I found it interesting to see how the header classification numbers shook out over the season. Now these charts don’t tell you who won at these ropings, it just tells you, overall, how headers enter in each division. Oh, and heelers, your next. Come back next month.

Hello Ropers!

2013 Regional Finals Are Going To Be Legendary!

PHOTO BY 3 LAZY J PHOTOS

PHOTO BY 3 LAZY J PHOTOS

It’s finally here! Spring time in Texas! I love this time of year, the grass is green, the wildflowers are blooming, the weather is great not to mention all the great ropings. This month our schedules are flourishing with so many events, it is sure to be a promising season with big payouts. Our staff has been busy preparing for the Regional Finals that kick off in June, so be sure to mark your calendars; the Gold Plus roping is going to be legendary! Legendary as in a minimum of $122,500 added to the #12 (with a #10 Incentive) Gold Plus roping. That is at least $17,500 added to every single Regional Finals Gold Plus Division. Besides the National Finals Shoot-Outs, I don’t know any other finals event that averages a 90% or better payback to the ropers. In addition to the huge cash payout, the Gold Plus prize line will be extended to include Gist buckles, Resistol hats, Tony Lama boots and Cinch or Cruel Girls jeans to the Average winners of the roping. The Incentive Average winners will take home Gist buckles, Classic Equine horse sheets, Classic Rope duffel bags and Classic Rope sling bags. We tip our hats to our amazing group of sponsors! Last year we were able to add $15,000 to the Gold Plus roping at the Regional Finals and this year we are excited to announce at least $17,500 cold hard cash will be added. The Gold Plus program is

growing and it is definitely an elite group that ropers are proud to be a part of. In 2012, the winning team of the Gold Plus Average won anywhere from $8,900 to $12,000 in cash. This year with $17,500 added, first place could cash in anywhere from $10,000 to at least $13,000 plus all the awesome prizes. Let’s talk Incentive. The #12 Gold Plus roping will have a #10 Incentive. In 2012, the Incentive Average winners won anywhere from $5,300 to $7,200 in cash for roping three steers in an Average time of 30.2 seconds. Three steers! Where else can you go and win that much cash in an Incentive roping? But wait, Incentive winners have another chance to rope for more cash in the main Average. Now we are taking things to a whole new level, two chances to win cold hard cash not to mention a great prize line from Classic Rope and Classic Equine, leaders in the industry! This year we are estimating the Incentive payouts to pay anywhere from $6,000 to at least $7,500 cash. Can you say cha-ching? For the last two years, the Gold Plus division has been the highest paying division at the Regional Finals and this year will be no exception. We are excited that we have such a supportive group of ropers in the Gold Plus program. Being able to provide this kind of payout at the Regional Finals for our members is legendary. We hope to see each and every one of you at a Regional Event or two. So while we are busy polishing our golden bull shield for the 2013 Regional Finals, ropers start getting those Classic ropes out and lining up your partners, you don’t want to miss this! Saddle up, it’s time to rope! — Lauren Hardman

Champions Profile And Then There Was One / Show Me the Money by Melinda Clements

#10 Shoot-Out 2012 USTRC National Champions

I

t just so happens the #10 Shoot-Out at the 2012 Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping was a family affair. Not only was it a family affair, but it had a certain international flavor which made it that much more exciting. The short go round of the #10 Shoot-Out welcomed thirty teams to vie for an awesome prize line. For certain, $105,000 is a lot of money. Add to the dollars Martin Championship Trophy saddles, Gist Championship Gold buckles, Tony Lama Ostrich boots and Western Horseman Collector’s Prints and you have a recipe for competition. What roper wouldn’t be bowled over to walk home with a load like that? The Average in the #10 Shoot-Out would pay money to the top twenty teams placing in the Average. Rex and Jorge Hawkins wanted a little part of the action. They wanted to stay aggressively and rope their best roping. With that thought in the back of their minds they just wanted to do what they had done all day; rope their best! The Hawkins team was the sixth high call back team coming into the short go round of the #10 Shoot-Out. The pair had to be 9.10 to take the lead away from the seventh high team back of Colton and Coy Brittian. It could be done if they roped aggressively and focused on a good solid run. When the pair rode into the box they were a little nervous, but it wasn’t the main thing on their minds. They settled in and their focus was 18 / APRIL 2013

on doing what needed to be done. When the clock stopped it read 8.93. They had, indeed, taken the lead and the tedious art of waiting out five more teams became the issue. All the remaining teams were there for a reason and they were all quite adept and able to maintain their positions and/or win the roping. “I was pretty nervous as I watched the rest of the roping,” Rex Hawkins said. “I was excited with how we were holding on. I was very happy with how we had done and I was happy that things turned out okay. I know watching the last five teams made me more nervous than actually roping.” “I was too nervous to watch or think about anything,” Jorge Hawkins said. “My uncle and I roped well and I wanted it to be over.” When a couple of unqualified runs and some runs


18-19 Champions Profile_Layout 1 3/6/13 11:00 AM Page 19

with penalties finished up the short go round something clicked inside Jorge and Rex Hawkins. It was something they could not quite grasp. Suddenly, the impossible had become possible. Suddenly, the prizes loomed in front of their eyes and they couldn’t even embrace what it meant. The pair had won the #10 Shoot-Out at the 2012 Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping. How do you put your mind around that? As the pair made a victory lap around the arena there was only numbed emotions and a cluttered mind of distorted reality.

“I came from Mexico to rope with my uncle,” Jorge said with a shy smile. “I feel happy having this win. I don’t know what to do and I cannot even understand what it all means. I came to Oklahoma City because my family said it was a good roping and team roping in Mexico is very different.” “Jorge is my nephew,” Rex Hawkins commented. “We have been roping since he was about nine years old. I have been dreaming of this for a long time.” The #10 Shoot-Out came together under an umbrella of family and competition. When the numbers were tallied and the steers all roped one thing became very certain. An uncle and his nephew had risen to the top and had taken the roping by storm. When everything was added up one thing became evident: And Then There Was One, Rex and Jorge Hawkins were the champions. They were the winners of the #10 Shoot-Out at the 2012 Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping. SUPERLOOPER MAGAZINE / 19

eam roping and the USTRC are in full swing for 2013. Big things are happening in the sport again this year and if you are a team roper, you will certainly want to be part of it. The USTRC is going to once again add $1 million of its own money to the Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping (NFTR). This was such a huge success last year that the USTRC again wants to give back to its ropers and members. The cash and prize purse of last year’s Finals was just over five million dollars and with the way things are going this year, the payout will exceed that for 2013. The Cinch NFTR will take place in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and will run from October 26 through November 3. The roping is the best return on investment of any single team roping event in the world. A team roper can put up an entry fee of $300 and win up to 170 times their money back. No one else offers ropers this kind of return on their entry fee. The USTRC has also put together an outstanding prizeline for the Cinch NFTR again this year. Team ropers can expect the most awesome and unique team roping awards. Another great addition to this year's team roping line up is that the USTRC will be adding a minimum of $17,500 to the the Gold Plus Division at each of the seven USTRC Regional Finals. That gives ropers another great reason to participate in the USTRC Gold Plus Program in 2013. Speaking of Regional Finals... there are 20 / APRIL 2013

some great USTRC Regional Finals spread across the United States. The first Regional event will take place in Paso Robles, California. The West Coast Regionals is set for June 28-30 and is one you will not want to miss. The next Regional will be the Eastern Regional Finals in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and it will be held June 11-14. From there, team ropers can travel to the Southwest Regional Finals in Clovis, New Mexico. The roping action will take place August 1-4 at the Curry County Special Events Center. The Lonestar Regional Finals will be next and is set to happen in Waco, Texas. The team roping will begin on August 8 and end on the 11. The Northwest Regional Finals will be held in Winnemucca, Nevada on August 23-25. The High Plains Regional Finals and the Southeast Regional Finals will be held on the same weekend in Loveland, Colorado and Tunica, Mississippi respectively, so team ropers can head to the Regional Finals of their choice on Labor Day Weekend. The roping will begin on August 30 and conclude on September 2. As promised, each will be great events and will feature $17,500 in cash added to the Gold Plus Division. The USTRC is all about team roping and team ropers. So make plans to head to some of the great USTRC Sanctioned events scattered throughout the country. They are the best way to gather up USTRC Flex Earnings so you can be sure and attend one of the great Regional Ropings and the Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping. This is going to be a great year, so lets get roping!

with Rickey Green Toughest Roping In History y hat’s off to the ropers who roped at the Mike Cervi Memorial Roping this year. I roped in many ropings during my younger years in rain and hail, but I’ve never seen it done at that level in conditions that bad. As far as I’m concerned, there has never been a better performance by professional athletes in adverse conditions, performing at the peak of perfection in conditions that most people wouldn’t even walk out to the car in. Our sport has risen to a new level that no other generation of ropers has experienced. The first five places all averaged six-second runs on five head, in rain and hail and a thirty mile an hour wind. I would never have dreamed of seeing so many teams catch fresh steers that fast and that consistently in the middle of a winter storm. I watched many world champions drive up, then load up and drive away because the weather was so volatile. Just to enter you had to be tough; to be a fan you had to be tough. To win or place in this roping, you had to be one of the most focused, determined and talented athletes on the planet. Guys you have arrived… football, baseball, basketball all have nothing on you. I am so amazed and privileged to see the sport I love rise to this level of competition. When Arnold Palmer was asked about Tiger Woods’ game, his reply was, “I’m not familiar with competing at that level.” I could not believe what I was seeing in six inches of water and blowing hail - run after run, five and six second runs with hail bouncing off of their foreheads. I believe that the weather actually helped the concentration of these ropers. You had to dig deep just to get past how wet and cold you were. You had to have your whole heart into it. I believe if these guys, or anyone else, could tap into the heart and focus they used at that roping, they would raise their yearly earnings considerably. The conditions were so bad no one was having fun. There was no back slapping and shootin’ the bull. At all the other ropings I went to people were having a beer, talking and enjoying the sunshine, roping legs and waving it off. At this roping, no one was talking. They were sitting, heads down to keep the hail out of their faces, waiting their turn to rope, on a mission to make every loop count because they weren’t going to put themselves through this misery for no reward. These were the toughest conditions, and that made it the toughest roping ever as far as I’m concerned. Not just the winners roped great, but every team entered had a focus that if they could capture year round, would bring team roping to a level that would be nothing nice. For you young guns just getting started, you better start practicing this kind of elevated practice now, because if this catches on our sport is going to a whole new level. You know, I’ve practiced in the rain and fog and cold, but I’ve never ever imagined you could rope that many steers that fast and that consistent in those conditions. Clay Cooper, Jake

Barnes and I would drive all night, then practice the next morning before we went to bed just to make us mentally tough. It looks like these guys have the ability and mental toughness when they really decide to use it. The question for me, and hopefully for you, too, is how much am I giving of myself? How much am I really trying to win, or am I just here for the fresh air and exercise? When you give 100% it hurts to lose, so some people give themselves an out by not giving it everything they have. Others think that they are giving it everything they have, but still can’t keep their focus at a level that will let them rope several steers in a row at a high level. For some of us, we push too hard and go too fast and end up in a speed jam. Some folks are naturally too timid and safe, so you end up passing up the best shot you were going to get, hoping for a better one that never comes. Our problem as a sport is that we don’t have enough professional trainers. If we did, team ropers wouldn’t listen anyway. Most team ropers my age have never been to a school and are a number four, and they like to talk about how to do it but they really just do it for a hobby. I have a student who came to me as a four and guess what? He got better. He is now a five and won about $90,000 last year. This student thought he could get better, and he was not afraid to put his heart, time and effort into his roping. He has a young attitude for a 70-year-old header. I have no idea what it will take for you to find the winner inside. I know what techniques you need in your mechanics, but I’m not an expert in mental preparation. I wish I was because I would win a lot more myself. All I know is that I do better when I see a roping like the Mike Cervi, these pros inspire me to try again. Even if I’m never at that level again, I can go down swinging. It’s not for everyone to expect great things from themselves. But, if you do decide, greatness is within your reach. You’ll get a lot closer to it by saying, “What the heck, lets give it everything I have.” The worst thing that can happen is you’ll be so much better than you were before. I’m looking forward to roping in the George Strait roping. I hope it’s nice weather; I don’t want these guys to get ticked off and put on another roping exhibition like the Mike Cervi roping. Your Friend,

Leg Wraps & Bandages

By Heather Smith Thomas

L

eg wraps and bandages are often used on sport horses and show horses to give support and/or protection to the legs. Dr. Jerry Black (Wagonhound Land and Livestock Chair, Equine Science, at Colorado State University) says there are basically two types of bandaging. “One is more for protection—such as shipping bandages—and

24 / APRIL 2013

others are often a combination of support and protection. Polo wraps are mainly for protection even though some people think they do both,” he says. For support, you need a type of bandaging that applies a mild amount of pressure. This can help keep a leg from swelling. Many people bandage horses in the evening if they tend to stock up after a ride. Horses that are hauled long distances also tend to stock up, due to lack of activity and movement. Some type of bandaging that puts mild pressure on those legs will prevent swelling—as well as help protect the legs if the horse is jostled around in the trailer. “Make sure you have plenty of padding underneath those bandages. Unless they are the big, fluffy type of polo wrap, if you apply bandages without some kind of quilting or leg cottons, or some of the newer types of manufactured quilting (such as the No-Bow bandages), you have to be careful how much pressure you apply,” says Black. You can put a mild amount of pressure on the padded wraps because it is distributed more evenly on the leg and there’s more cushion with the padding. The quilted bandages or No-Bows are a fairly safe type of bandage material. “The polo wraps are designed with a certain fluffiness to provide their own cushion. We usually advise people who are wrapping horses’ legs to haul, or wrapping in the evening after a workout, to use something that won’t bunch up or wrinkle under the bandage and create pressure points,” he says. “I am partial to the No-Bow bandages that have felting on the outside and a very thin layer of foam rubber sewn into the middle of them (and not right next to the horse). There’s some padding between the wrap itself and the horse. The nice thing


24-25 Horse Health_Layout 1 3/7/13 11:26 AM Page 25

about these bandages is that they come in two different lengths so you have the correct fit for front legs and hind legs. This is a big advantage. If you use regular sheet cottons you usually have to take them apart and fold them in thirds (for the front legs) rather than fold them in halves like they come in, or they will be too long,” explains Black. A good fit is crucial. “You also want even pressure up and down the leg. Typically, the wraps are the right length that you can start at the top and work down. I usually put the edge of the wrap right below the knee or hock on the side of the cannon bone and don’t start it at the back of the leg on the tendon. Apply the wrap around and around the leg, covering about half the width of the wrap as you go down, and then turn around and come back up, overlapping about half the width of the wrap itself with each turn. With most horses, if you have some practice at it, you can end your wrap at the top again.” It comes out even.

Elastic Wraps “Proper use of elastic wraps is also very important. Most of these, like Vet-Rap or Elasticon are disposable, for one-time use. These are generally not used as much for protection as they are for support. They are designed to put some pressure on the leg, so there is always some risk for putting these on too tight. With the Vet-Rap or Elasticon, you have to make sure you have sufficient padding underneath. With a wound, it’s nice to have layers of bandaging on, before you put the stretchy material on,” says Black. “Typically you’d have some kind of non-stick pad over the wound itself, then some stretch gauze around the leg to hold that non-stick pad in place. Then you’d use a cushioning bandage material over that. One of my favorites is called Specialist Cast Padding and is made by J and J. It’s also a roll-on cotton that’s elastic, so you can make a beautiful fit. This comes in big, fluffy rolls. Then you can put the Vet-Rap or Elasticon over the top of that, to hold everything in place,” he explains. This is a good way to layer a bandage onto the leg. “One of the things about wrapping with a pressure wrap is that you never want to end it right over a tendon. If your horse has a wound in the fetlock area, unless your veterinarian teaches you how to put some very specialized wraps on, you’d want to take that wrap all the way up to just below the knee or hock, and then take it back down under the ankle (pastern area) so you are not ending the wrap in the middle of the tendon—to avoid the potential for a bandage bow,” says Black. The pressure over the tendon would cause tendonitis and swelling. “We have seen the extreme of this problem when people don’t know how much pressure to put on those wraps (and have too much) or don’t have enough padding underneath them. The horse may end up with ulcerations in the skin from lack of circulation.” The pressure cuts off

blood circulation and the top layers of skin slough away, and these must be treated as wounds. When these raw areas heal, the hair comes in white. “Horses that have white hair on the back or front of the cannon region have probably at some point in their lives had a bandage too tight,” says Black. “When using any kind of stretchy bandage (and Vet-Rap is the one most commonly used), a common rule of thumb is that— with proper padding underneath it— you can safely stretch it about half of it’s maximum potential of stretch,” he explains. It should never be stretched any more than that. It’s also important that the bandages stay in place and never slide down the leg. “If they slide downward, they have the potential to bind or wrinkle and put too much pressure in certain spots, and can create pressure sores. Often you’ll have a nice bandage put on, with elastic Vet-Rap to hold it in place, and then use the Elasticon (adhesive stretchy material) top and bottom to help keep it in place,” says Black. If you don’t know how to bandage a horse, get help from someone who does. It helps to practice under the eye of an experienced person who has done a lot of bandaging. “Some of the best bandagers I’ve ever seen are at the racetrack, and they always learn the proper techniques as an apprentice— with guidance from someone who knows how to do it. Your veterinarian or a knowledgeable horse person at your stable (such as a trainer who bandages horses all the time) can likely show you how to do it properly. If you are a novice, make sure you have the padding in place and that it doesn’t slip.”

Resistol Hats The USTRC Collection, Made for Team Ropers The USTRC and Resistol Hats have been partners now for many years. And while both organizations have a great history, Resistol wins easily in the race for longevity. USTRC was born in 1990. Resistol, however, was founded way back in 1927 in Dallas with the company name of Byer-Rolnick. The new firm produced men’s felt hats in Western and Dress styling’s, both were marketed under the newly created brand name “Resistol Hats,” meaning to resist-all weather. Success came fairly quick for ByerRolnick as by 1938 the company needed to expand and did so to their new digs in Garland, Texas where Resistol Hats are still manufactured today. Byer-Rolnick’s success continued and the Resistol brand became the greatest name in western hats. In an effort to better control the quality and flow of product, Byer-Rolnick acquired a fur cutting plant and built a rough-body plant in Longview, Texas. These acquisitions made Byer-Rolnick the first and only manufacturer to operate the entire felt hat making process, which includes over 200 processes. By operating all phases of production, Byer-Rolnick was able to obtain maximum quality control and thereby produce the most consistent and finest hat known the world over. And by the way, Resistol Fur Felt Hats are made 100% in Texas. 28 / APRIL 2013

Resistol and Ropers Flash forward now to the mid-90’s. It was then that USTRC and Resistol first partnered with each other and Resistol became the official hat of the USTRC. It was a pretty easy decision to make, as what sets Resistol apart is the legacy of generations of cowboys that wear the brand. Your core, lifestyle cowboy purposely makes up the bulk of Resistol customers. And arguably, there is no better personification of a group that carries on the core, cowboy lifestyle than the modern day team roper. Recreational team roping is what cowboys do for fun. While rodeo embodies nearly the full spectrum of cowboy sport, it is team roping that a cowboy can actively pursue through most of his or her lifetime. Needless to say, Resistol and USTRC has been a very good matchup. It was not long after this flourishing partnership began that Resistol came to USTRC and asked if we would be interested in participating in a licensed USTRC line of Resistol Hats. The answer came fairly swiftly –– you bet! So in 2007, the Resistol USTRC Collection was born. It was then and still is a relatively small collection as the research conducted by Resistol confirmed that a team roper’s hat needs were reasonably straightforward. First, it had to be in a style that reflected the current cowboy culture and respected the cowboy tradition. Secondly, it had to be comfortable. And thirdly, it needed to stay on for the duration of a typical teamroping run. There are few catastrophes worse than the indignity of losing a hat in the course of a run and even more disastrous is the sight of a brand new Black Gold hitting the arena dirt only to be run over by horse or steer. The initial straw USTRC Collection proved to be quite popular from the get-go. It met all the criteria. It wasn’t fancy, on purpose, but it had real style. It was comfortable, like most Resistol hats are, and to achieve what may possibly be the most important goal – to stay on – Resistol included in the two USTRC straw styles a relatively new technology, the Dri-Lex® sweatband.

Ropers and Sweat If there is a force at work that runs diametrically counter to the ability to keep a hat on one’s head, particularly when faced with wind and energetic motion, it is sweat. Sweat can make one’s head slicker than a greased pig. Not surprisingly, team roping runs and sweat go together like a horse and saddle. To thwart the deadly hat sweats, Resistol inserted the patented Dri-Lex® sweatband into each and every


28 Resistol_Layout 1 3/6/13 12:02 PM Page 29

USTRC Collection straw hat. Without getting too technical, Dri-Lex’s® four channel fiber speeds moisture to the outside and away from skin (see below). Quick drying and breathable, the sweatband resists mildew and shrinkage. And it works. Ropers were quick to find this out along with a lot of other cowboys. The result was that the USTRC Collection became one of Resistol’s best selling line of hats. The USTRC Collection felt hat, however, was another story. While fairly successful at first, it has languished for the last couple years. Well, Resistol researchers went to work. One of the questions they found ropers were asking was why Resistol didn’t put the Dri-Lex® sweatband into USTRC felt hats? The answer, it seems, is because Dri-Lex® is so proficient at wicking sweat away from the sweatband, it has a tendency to wick it into the felt causing a stain. So, Resistol has gone to work on this problem and feel they may have found a solution that will greatly diminish the staining effect. But because it was the team roper that asked for a felt with a Dri-Lex® band, it will be the team roper that will receive. Along with a new, updated style, ropers will be able to purchase this new USTRC Collection felt come this fall. And it will be the ONLY felt hat in the entire Resistol line that will feature the Dri-Lex® sweatband.

This innovation is a direct result of Resistol talking to team ropers. Resistol has not become the legacy hat brand for

cowboys on sheer will alone. They have always been ahead of the curve. Today’s cowboy is both respectful and mindful of its long and treasured traditions, but tastes and technology are constantly changing. Resistol has and continues to be ever sensitive to these trends and this new USTRC Collection felt with its Dri-Lex® sweatband is just one example of that responsiveness. So be looking this fall for the new USTRC Collection felt with its Dri-Lex® band and distinctive USTRC logo pin at Western Wear stores nationwide.

The New Resistol “Gold Plus” Hat And there’s more good news for USTRC from Resistol. Coming July 2013, Resistol is giving you another reason to become a valued Gold Plus member. They will launch the new Premium 100% Pure Fur Felt hat named “Gold Plus”. It will come with an array of USTRC bells and whistles along with all of the functionality of the other USTRC Resistol hats. There will be an attached hangtag that will allow you to take a significant discount when you present your Gold Plus Card at checkout. All of the details have not been disclosed to us yet, but Resistol has announced the “Gold Plus” will be a top of the line premium hat that all USTRC members would be proud to own. It will be available at the Finals in Oct. just in time for the fall season.

The Perfect Practice!

‘Practice makes perfect!’ Team roping is not a sport that you can engage in on a whim and expect to win. It does not matter which side you pick, heading or heeling, it takes lots and lots of practice to hone the skills needed be competitive in the sport. Although there are tools and devices available that one can use to practice, nothing compares to roping live cattle for practice. That is the reason so many ropers today have set up practice arenas at their homes. Setting up a practice arena takes a lot of effort, but the rewards are tremendous. The ability to rope often, work on specific details, keep your horse in shape and horsemanship is important when it comes to progressing in the sport. Additionally, having your own practice facility gives you a chance to entertain 30 / APRIL 2013

your roping partners and friends while enjoying the sport at your leisure. When it comes to planning the design of your practice pen, there are a multitude of considerations to be made for maximum efficiency and enjoyment. Most ropers want to get the best value from their investment and today’s products and tools help many reach that goal. However, if you plan to spend a little or a lot you need to make sure your practice arena is, above all, safe, efficient and practical.

The first thing to be considered when building your practice arena is location. Good drainage with the right footing will be essential for ultimate enjoyment and safety. Get some help from an expert in the field if you need it, and spend the money to get the dirt right from the base up. This investment could pay off in big dividends with ease of maintenance, more active riding days and fewer injuries for horse and rider. The ground and footing should be the first thing to prioritize. For best results,


30 Feature_Layout 1 3/4/13 2:55 PM Page 31

the ground underneath your footing must have a solid base. Using a well-drained aggregate material compacted and graded to at least 2 to 4 feet outside of the arena perimeter is the first ingredient for a proper foundation of your arena. The base material can be from 4 to 6 inches thick and with no variations in grade throughout the entire area of the arena, aside from a minimum slope for rain runoff. The base is very important and compaction is key for the foundation of any riding arena. The actual footing of the arena should be anywhere form 4 to 6 inches as well. Many successful arena surfaces start out as a composite of two or more materials. Availability, temperatures and rainfall should be considered when picking a topsoil material for your arena. The primary principle of footing material is to maintain their structure without heavy compaction while providing stability for riding events. Most often, a mixture of native topsoil mixed with good clean sand is a suitable top soil combination. Whatever you use though, the mixture should help in the overall structure capabilities and the water retention for the arena. Maintaining quality footing with the right equipment is equally important. There are many different arena grooming tools available and finding the right tool for your arena is an important piece of your practice arena enjoyment. Today’s arena grooming tools have been greatly influenced by technology and research and many different manufactures make quality products to ensure arena floors are prepared for the best riding conditions for equine sports. Moving along to the actual building of your arena, the most widely adapted form of construction today is to utilize potable panels. The availability and cost of portable panels has made arena building fast, easy and versatile. There is no need to spend days or weeks digging holes and setting posts for permanent wood or steel fencing. With the right panels, an individual can save lots of time and money by building an arena to fit his or her current needs while keeping options open for easy expansion at a later date. It’s much easier to keep a consistent look, and certainly easier to make changes, if panels can be moved or replaced in a few minutes rather than becoming a major renovation project. In addition, maintenance can become virtually a “non-issue” with the quality of some of today’s powder coating finishes. Painting or replacing boards can become a thing of the past, and arena owners can spend more time roping and riding rather than working on their arena. Most manufacturers have a selection of different arena plans to choose from. You can utilize a set arena design package or at least begin with a common design and expand it to fit your own idea of what an arena needs to be for your own personal objectives. Given all these options, portable panels are the way to go. Simple to more complex features, a practice arena can be tailor-made to your own designed with added details to make your practice sessions more practical, less stressful for cattle and safer for horses and riders alike. These added features may include return alleys, different types of roping and stripping chutes, holding pens, as well as easy access gates. The basic design of a team roping practice arena would be no smaller than 120 feet by 240 feet. Any smaller and you

do not have enough room to properly practice all of the aspects you may need to work on. On the other side, an arena can be built to upwards of 160 feet by 280 feet. Any larger than this though and you may add extra work and stress for horses and cattle going from one end to the other or leaving the arena


30 Feature_Layout 1 3/4/13 2:53 PM Page 32

after a team has roped. A team roping run begins at the roping chute making it an important piece of equipment. There are several manufactures that make quality roping chutes with designs that take a lot of the work of loading cattle in and releasing them out of the head gate almost a nonissue. Just as important is a stripping chute. Taking ropes off the horns and feet of a roped steer can be a draining task. However, a good stripping chute that is properly positioned at the end of an arena can greatly help remove ropes and in some case riders may not even have to dismount to take the ropes

off, eliminating a lot of the extra work when practicing. Of course holding pens and a return alley are added benefits to a practice arena. Cattle can be pushed across the arena and into a holding pen prior to roping, however, a return alley leading from one end of the arena to the other offers less work to maneuver cattle to the roping chute allowing ropers more time to enjoy the practice session. Additionally, a roper can push cattle through an alley by themselves much easier allowing for the option to practice alone. Other amenities a roper may want to

Arena Tools Team ropers and horse owners all across the country rely on great tools to keep their riding facilities and equine properties in order. From ground conditioning tools to tractors, chutes and watering systems, every horse owner who has a riding arena, pasture or practice pen uses different tools to accomplish these different needs. Several manufactures offer great tools to meet the needs of horse owners. We are proud to showcase a variety of products that horse owners and team ropers alike have found to be reliable at their own homes, as well as at horse facilities nationwide.

consider when erecting a practice arena is the option of making it a multi accessible arena. Making is a place where children can learn to ride in a safe environment, where you can practice other equine sports such as barrel racing, calf roping, cutting or other horse related events may be a consideration. Adding a calf alley for some who enjoy roping calves or breakaway roping may be an option. Adding a small round corral attached to the arena in order to train younger horses, as well as the simple things such as adding some sort of shelter-shade or hitching post in an area of the arena to tie multiple horses too

Case IH Farmall C

From the feedlot to the pasture, the new Case IH Farmall® C tractors reliably and cost-effectively deliver the power and performance utility tractor owners expect, all in a superior interior environment. Three new utility powerhouses meet the demand for rugged, yet comfortable and easy-to-operate, equipment to get day-today jobs done: • Farmall 85C with 75 PTO HP • Farmall 95C with 85 PTO HP • Farmall 105C with 95 PTO HP “These versatile utility models are ready to meet any challenge on your evergrowing task list during longer work days, whether you are mixing feed or baling hay,” says Greg Lucey, Case IH Farmall Tractors Marketing Manager. “These tractors also meet emissions standards with Tier 4A engines.” Tough at heart with updated cleandiesel technology, the new Farmall C models use Tier 4A-compliant Case IH FPT 4-cylinder 3.4-L turbocharged and intercooled engines. Precise electronic metering of fuel delivered with electronic high-pressure common-rail fuel injection provides a more efficient combustion process. This means improved efficiency, extended engine life, improved coldengine starting, but most importantly, “This unique fuel injection system provides greater fuel savings, all while maintaining high horsepower levels,” says Lucey. Glow plugs warm the engine prior to a cold-weather start, eliminating the need to use ether for more reliable starting in freezing temperatures. The Farmall C models require ultralow-sulfur (15 ppm) fuel and low-ash lube oil. Proven 12-speed forward, 12-speed reverse transmissions are designed with operator productivity in mind. The three Farmall C units use a synchronized, mechanical shuttle, 34 / APRIL 2013

wet- or dry-clutch transmission. If the application demands it, upgraded transmission options are available. The newly designed Farmall cab goes a step above the rest to make the operator’s day better and more productive with more user-friendly controls and features. Reworked internal control ergonomics provide best-in-class productivity and minimize operator fatigue.

Lucas Metal Works

Lucas Metal Works has diversified itself from the original custom metal works business it started out as in 1968, and has become a company with six separate divisions under the Lucas Metal Works company umbrella. The Lucas family has a long history in the horse industry. Raymond Lucas, owner and founder of Lucas Metal Works, designed an arena tool in 1996 for his family who are avid barrel racers. This all-in-one arena working tool would come to be known as The Ground Hog Arena Tool. The Ground Hog Arena Tool became a nationwide success and the Arena Tool of choice for rodeo associations across the nation, including the granddaddy of them all, The National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Ground Hog Arena Tool, like most ventures at Lucas, has exceeded the company’s wildest expectations. Lucas decided an addition to the Ground Hog would assist the process of smoothing out the arenas, thus the Watering System that attaches to the Ground Hog was developed. Lucas started out as a custom metal works business, and in 2010 decided to branch out into farm equipment. They began with Grapples and Hay Spears and didn’t stop there. At this time Lucas has in upwards of 10 implements offered to assist with farming. This includes Lucas’ newest innovation, The Watering System for the

Ground Hog. This newest product reached the market just last year in 2012. Needless to say, it too has exceeded the expectations for Lucas Metal Works. The growth of the product line has brought growth within the company as well. What once started out with a small family-owned and operated company forty-five years ago has grown to five different divisions. There is an inside sales team to answer your calls and emails and an outside sales team that works with dealers throughout the Mid-west to get the farm equipment out in front of the farmers and ranchers. Lucas Metal Works is a dedicated leader in innovative and creative manufacturing within the farm equipment industry. Lucas Metal Works became a member of the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association in 2011. The company strives to satisfy each farm equipment customer. Lucas continues to expand their dealer and distributer network across the nation. Contact them at 866.689.8904 or info@lucasmetalworks.com or check them out online at www.lucasmetalworks.com. Lucas Metal Works has been at the same location for over 45 years, 396281 W 3000 Rd., Ochelata, OK 74051.

Red Master Harrow

Red Master’s goal has always been perfect footing. It’s no surprise, then, that the company that first designed harrows for specific events has raised the bar even further with its new all-in-one tool, T-Rex. “We just introduced this and the response has been unbelievable,” says owner Floyd Fain, a team roper who bought the Amarillo-based company two years ago. “People love the fluff it puts in the ground and the way it all works as one unit.” T-Rex features Red Master’s renowned ripper at the front, with its formerly optional paddlewheel and float pin bringing up the rear. The paddlewheel is dual-purpose,” says


30 Feature_Layout 1 3/4/13 2:54 PM Page 35

Fain. “It breaks up clods and injects air into the soil. The float pin comes along to level the ground, helping trap that air to provide real cushion.” Here’s another handy feature of the new T-Rex: you can adjust the ripper without it affecting the harrow behind it. Simply tilt it forward to go deeper or back if you want it digging less aggressively. The freestanding tires manage your depth. “Everyone’s idea of perfect ground is different,” says Fain, who designed T-Rex based on customers’ suggestions. “We take great pride in having been able to satisfy everyone’s needs with this one tool, from cutters to ropers to reiners.” Find out more at www.redmasterharrow.com or call then directly at 866. 362.9353

Reveal 4-n-1 The Reveal 4-n-1 is the ultimate arena and ground prep tool. The Reveal 4-n-1 is a rugged hard working tool designed to make arena preparation and maintenance easier and less time consuming. The unit is made in

different sizes to fit your needs. It has a versatile three-point hitch hook up. The front chisel plows are adjusted hydraulically to dig 0-7 inches. The channel iron beams are designed at angles to move material for leveling and to allow you to get at those hard to reach areas. The harrow beam can be adjusted hydraulically separate from the chisel plows to a depth of 3-1/2 inches to break up material as well as aerate it. The roller works in conjunction with the harrow beam to further pulverize and firm down the material. All these functions can be done at the same time from the comfort of your tractor seat. Ground is just made of dirt, but great footing is made by the Reveal 4n-1. Don’t be fooled by imitators, go with the original, still the best, the Reveal 4-n-1. The Reveal 4-n-1 is the only tool endorsed by the NBHA and the ANHA. Call 937.444.2609 for more information or find us at www.reveal4-n-1.com

Fast Back Ropes Brings Back the Pink Patron By Popular Demand

F

ast Back Ropes first introduced the “rope with a cause,” the Pink Patron, in 2008. This bright pink rope quickly became a favorite for ropers, many of whom had personal experience with breast cancer. For every Pink Patron sold, Fast Back Ropes has donated $1 to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Due to production and warehouse demands in 2011, Fast Back Ropes had to make this rope available by special order only. Due to popular demand, the Pink Patron will soon be back in stores. The Pink Patron has been re-engineered with a new fiber and feels better than ever before. “We received a lot of feedback from customers who missed the Pink Patron,” explains Al Benson. “We used this opportunity to make some improvements before re-introducing the rope.” The Pink Patron is a vivid pink four-strand poly blend. In addition to high visibility, the Pink Patron, is well balanced with distinct tip feel. “I lost my mother to breast cancer when I was twelve, so when the Pink Patron came along I was anxious to try it,” says team roper, Hector Hernandez. “I found that I really like the weight and body of this rope, both heading and heeling.” Fast Back Ropes will continue to donate $1 per Pink Patron sold to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Look for your Pink Patron at your local Fast Back dealer on April 15, 2013. For dealer locations visit fastbackropes.com or call 800-479-1851. 36 / APRIL 2013

Prime Performance Nutrition

P

rime Performance Nutrition is teaming up with professional team roper, Tyler Magnus of Mason, Texas. This member of the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is quickly becoming a household name in the rodeo industry. Training many performance horses that go on to compete in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, American Quarter Horse Association and the American Paint Horse Association, Tyler has the added stress of keeping these horses performing at maximum level. “About a year ago I met Tyler and we talked about the trouble that he was having keeping his son’s horse sound. I sent him a pail of Maxum HA to try and two months later Tyler couldn’t wait to tell me that he was back to roping on him,” said Jeff Butler, President of Prime Performance Nutrition. Maxum HA is a combination of glucosamines, chondroitin sulfate, MSM, hyaluronic acid and jam packed with vitamin C. The problem begins when the animal is supplied too little glucosamine to the joints, causing the cartilage to break down. The intersection where age and trauma meet is the point that the animal’s ability to convert glucose and glutamine into glucosamine decline, losing their ability to stimulate cartilage forming cells. Chondroitin sulfates directly attack the enzymes that destroy cartilage allowing the body to, more easily, heal itself. Hyaluronic Acid is a complex of proteins that form a gel-like matrix to guard the cartilage. MSM is essential for the growth and repair of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and other connective tissues. It’s the experienced science of Prime Performance Nutrition combined with the training prowess of Tyler Magnus that produces horses that love their job and perform at the top of their game.

Panhandle Classic Amarillo, Texas • April 26-28 2013

The Panhandle Classic will unfold the weekend of April 26 in the Great Plains of Texas. Amarillo will roll out the red carpet to USTRC team ropers and their families and it will a weekend you really want to put on your calendar. Part of the Great Plains and the largest city in the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo had its beginnings in 1887 when the Fort Worth-Denver City railroad was constructed across the Texas Panhandle. Originally named Oneida, the town was platted in April 1887 by J.I. Berry who soon renamed the town Amarillo (the Spanish word for yellow) after it was voted the county seat of Potter County in August 1887. In 1913 Amarillo voters approved a home rule charter with a commission-manager form of government. Industry in Amarillo began with railroading, cattle and merchandising and the city grew rapidly in 1925, stimulated by money derived from oil, gas and wheat expansion. Centrally located in the Texas Panhandle, bordered by New Mexico and Oklahoma, Amarillo’s economic history was closely tied to agriculture and the energy industry. These days businesses such as copper refining, fiberglass production, meatpacking, weapons disassembly, customer service operations and aircraft assembly have diversified the city’s economy. Serving as a regional medical center also plays a key role in Amarillo’s economy. Today, Amarillo is home to 190,695 (per 2010 Census) people. It is people who love roping and the equine industry and know what it takes to make a successful roping and horse event like the Panhandle Classic. The city always welcomes all newcomers and visitors. Amarillo is home to good food, excellent accommodations and fun things to do, including the American Quarter Horse Association and Museum. If you haven’t been for a visit reserve some time to do so. It is a given how much horses impact team roper’s lives and it is not only fun but interesting to see the role the Quarter Horse has played. 38 / APRIL 2013

Ropers might also want to make a visit to the Big Texan Steak Ranch. If a good steak is on your mind this is a world famous steak house. You will be hard pressed to find a better place to bite into good Texas beef. Amarillo is also the home of the old Route 66 Historic District. If you are not familiar with the significance of Route 66 there is no better placeto check out the history and implications the highway played in the early days. It was the route that connected the nations east coast and west coast and Amarillo played an integral part. The Panhandle Plains Historical Museum enlightens one about the rich history of Indian culture, cattle, ranching and the settling of the Great Plains area. While fun it also proves to be very educational and thought provoking as visitors see what it was like to live on the vast prairie and survive the elements. The American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum will host an Orren Mixer, artist of the American Quarter Horse, exhibit February 18 through July 27, 2013. If you don’t do anything else see this exhibition. Ropers can check it out on the web at www.quarterhorsemuseum.com for times and more information. Don Harrington Discovery Center is a great place to visit with the kids if you can take the time. Not only is it educational but the kind of fun your kids will be talking about for a long time. The Tri-State Fairgrounds cover 488,000 square feet including arenas, stalls and riding space for a variety of livestock and sporting events. The main arena is the 5,000 seat Amarillo National Center. Ropers can be assured of an excellent facility for the Panhandle Classic. With access to rooms, food, and a good place to rope you can bet Amarillo hosting the Panhandle Classic is a good thing. Mark your calendar team ropers! You won’t want to miss the Panhandle Classic. It kicks off the weekend of April 26-28. Plan to be there. It should be your roping of choice in April.

This roping is to make $50,000, so we don’t take this Corkill won the Wildfire Open to the a header’s game, because of the score for granted.” World—which is a USTRC Priefert Open and the steers. If the header doesn’t slow Masters and Corkill came back Tour Event—with his 2012 world second high team behind Brandon Beers things down it’s almost impossible, championship stage co-star, Chad because you get to rolling so fast.” and Cesar de la Cruz, but held the lead Masters. They roped six steers in 45.13 seconds and were promptly presented the coveted $100,000 cash prize by Wildfire Producer Billy Pipes; $100 bills tucked neatly inside Cactus Saddlery briefcases alongside custom Montana Silversmiths buckles and Resistol Black Gold hats. Masters just won his second gold buckle, but it was his first big win at the Wildfire. “I’ve only won fourth here, once, ever,” he laughed. “That was with Jade in 2010. Besides that, I’d been Reigning World Champion Team Ropers Chad Masters and Jade Corkill roped six head in 45.13 completely skunked every seconds to take the $100,000 title at the 2013 Wildfire Open to the World Roping in Salado, Texas.

The Cervi Gets Down and Dirty By Kristen Spinning

T

his year’s Mike Cervi Jr. Memorial Pro Classic was certainly not a roping for sissies. An ominous sky welcomed cowboys to Casa Grande, Arizona on February 20 for the event. When the heavens opened up the rain came down and it may have delayed the start, but didn’t dampen the enthusiasm for this prestigious roping. As always, the Cervi lived up to its reputation as an exciting event with the top ropers in the world. Cervi producer George Aros delayed the start of the main event by a couple hours to work the arena and let it drain. “The great asset we have here in Casa Grande is that all that deep sand can hold a lot of water and never get slick,” said Aros. “It has a great bottom, and we didn’t have one horse slip the entire day.” Aros made sure everyone knew they could draw out and get a full refund if they didn’t feel it was safe. But in the end, only a handful of teams took him up on that deal. “Everyone ran hard, they didn’t let up and they were using their good horses,” said Aros. Tony Ybarra of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Posse, the organization that helped bring the Cervi to Casa Grande, had fresh sand and a loader brought in to rework the boxes, and that was a huge improvement. After burning a couple steers to test out the conditions, Aros saw fit to set the score a foot and a half shorter than last year. The barrier was set at 16 and one half, with an 18' box. This resulted in some wicked fast times despite the mud. Rain returned at the end of the second of four progressive rounds, but with a total payout of $81,000, everyone was bringing their best game. Despite the rain, and even periods of sleet, diehard fans were prepared to stay, tenting themselves with tarps. Twenty teams were

back for the short round. Riley Minor and Justin Davis came in at the 14th spot, but put the pressure on by getting it done by catching their final steer in a time of 5.29 seconds. It was clear everyone had to go big or go home empty handed. Clay Smith and Will Woodfin, a pair of youngsters from Oklahoma and Texas stunned the crowed with a 5.04 second run, putting them in the lead with only four teams left to rope. The next team took a no time, leaving former World Champion Clay Tryan with two chances to win it with only 0.8 seconds separating the top three callback positions. Tryan and heeler Jade Corkill posted a time of 5.73 seconds, guaranteeing Clay at least one check as they settled into second place in the Average, just after Smith and Woodfin. Next, Tryan and Travis Graves gave it their best, stopping the clock with a run of 5.89 seconds. The pair had a nearly half-second advantage going in, good enough to put them on top. The traditional Cervi nail-biter was set up; top team back, Erich Rogers and Cory Petska needed a run of 6.23 seconds to win. They knew they couldn’t let up one bit. Erich got a good start out of the box and caught the steer fast and clean, positioning the steer perfectly for Cory to slip in and finish the run in 5.76 seconds. Cory claimed his third Cervi win. “There’s nothing better than playing in the mud all day,” beamed Cory as the mud-slathered pair posed with George Aros for pictures. In addition to the coveted Cervi Champion buckle from Gist, they won Running P saddles, a white tailed deer hunt provided by Driftwood Performance Horses and a check for $11,259 each. Erich commented, “It was a long, cold day, but it was really exciting.” Clay Tryan

The third place team of Smith and Woodfin were pretty pleased to each head home $7,401 richer. Other prizes included Justin Ostrich boots, Bio Vigor, custom breast collars, Renew Gold, Resistol Hats, Mojo Horns horse blankets, and Gordy Aldersen bits. Four years ago, Cory Petska suggested that Aros could move the Cervi Roping to Casa Grand. That got the ball rolling and thus the week-long Casa Grande Cowboy and Indian Days was born. The city, guided by the enthusiasm of City Manager Larry Rains, along with Dick Powell and the Pinal County Sheriff’s Posse, saw the tremendous opportunity a big name roping like the Cervi would bring to the area. They built an event around it which now begins with an AllIndian Rodeo, continues with ropings for all levels, features the All-Canadian Maple Leaf Classic and finishes with a crowd pleasing Ranch Rodeo. Despite the weather, the Cervi delivered on all accounts; heart stopping action, supreme professionalism and awesome payouts. Certainly this roping will be remembered by all who were there, for a very long time.

IN MEMORIUM Virgil Ronald Horn

Jeff Sewalt

Ricky Ramos

July 11, 1937 - January 7, 2013

June 2, 1956 - February 5, 2013

Virgil Ronald Horn of Moore, Oklahoma, passed away January 7, 2013 at his home due to complications from multiple illnesses. He was 75 years old. Ronnie was born July 11, 1937 in Holdenville, Oklahoma to Virgil and Wynona (LaValley) Horn. He was involved in Boy Scouts and FFA and later attended Murry State College. Ronnie married his loving wife Sally Taylor on February 10, 1956 and together they raised two sons, Hoby and Jeff. Ronnie had a long career in the oilfields. Ronnie’s love of horses seemed to begin at birth. He received his first mare at age 10 which he told of riding all over Hughes County. In 1948 his family moved to Pauls Valley, Oklahoma and he picked up his first rope. He and a friend began a trick roping act which they performed at rodeos. Ronnie raised and raced Quarter horses in the early 1980’s. After racing horses for many years Ronnie picked up a heading rope and in 1985 began team roping. Ronnie was also successful at raising a few great performance horses. The highlight of those efforts was winning the AQHA World Champion Title with horses that he had foaled and raised on his farm. Ronnie and Sally moved their family to Moore, Oklahoma in 1963. When his boys began playing little league ball he became very involved in the Moore Sooner Association. He thoroughly enjoyed watching his boys play ball from little league to college. Ronnie was a longtime member of Oakcrest Church of Christ. Memorial contributions may be made in Ronnie’s name to:

Services for Jeff Sewalt, 56, entrepreneur and avid team roper, were held at 10 a.m., Wednesday, February 6, 2013, at the Cowboy Church of Erath County with Reverand Werth Mayes officiating. A graveside memorial service was held at 3 p.m., Wednesday, at Cedar Point Cemetery in Brownwood, Texas. Jeff was born in Midland, Texas on June 2, 1956 to Alvis and Maxie Sewalt. He married Taronna Chambers on November 1, 1975, in Rising Star, Texas. She preceded him in death on July 28, 2006. He was a member of the Cowboy Church of Erath County. He was also a champion team roper, and a member of the United States Team Roping Championships as well as many other roping associations. Survivors include his mother, Maxie Brown Sewalt; daughter, JeTonna Gilliam, and husband Ky, of Early; Son, Judd Sewalt of Weatherford; his two sisters, Bonnie Burrus, and husband William, of Stephenville, and Teddi Morrow of Lampasas; brother, Alvis (Sambo) Sewalt, and wife Tawnya, of Athens; and two grandchildren, Vegas Gilliam and Harley Gilliam. He also had several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father Alvis Lynn Sewalt.

December 26, 1994 - December 30, 2012 Ricky Ramos was born Ricardo Ramos, Jr. on December 26, 1994 at 10:08 a.m., in the small community of Las Yescas, Texas. Since the day he was born, he was loved more than words can define. He was the 4th child born to his parents Ricardo Ramos and Julia Ramos, and became a brother to Felicha Ramos, Santos “Sonny” Ramos, and Amanda M. Ramos. Ricky comes from generations of cowboys. His late grandfather Cheno Ramos was a well-known cowboy in Rio Hondo, Texas and this love of the cowboy way was passed down to Ricky. It was apparent at a young age Ricky was destined to be a cowboy, his love for horses and the outdoors began at a very young age, never leaving the house without his jeans and boots, always wanting to be out in the sunshine. At the age of three he began twirling the rope, his father and brother guiding his every move and by the age of six he was roping the “dummy” like a pro. He would go to local team roping events with his father, brother and cousins and won approximately six buckles in “dummy” roping competitions. He loved the sport. At the age of eight, Ricky began riding his father’s horse in the arena and quickly demonstrated what a natural talent he was. Once he began competing in team roping events, it was all he looked forward to. Ricky loved having his mother in the stands cheering him on, as she always did. Ricky won many buckles, a variety of prizes including money, money that he put back into his love of roping. He would buy ropes, horse feed and, only if he really needed them ,a couple of pairs of jeans and boots. One of his dreams was to win an USTRC roping, which he did on April 19, 2012. Ricky had many team roping goals and aspirations but those were cut short on December 30, 2012. That day the Heavens gained a cowboy angel. Ricardo “Ricky” Ramos, Jr. will forever be missed and will eternally be in the hearts of everyone he knew, especially in the hearts of his family, whom he loved dearly.

Hard Work Food

I

If you order crab or lobster they bring you all those tools you’ll need to crack them open. I love crab, lobster, and I love to work with tools and pound on things, but at the prices they charge for seafood it shouldn’t be a do-it-yourself project. At the very least if they do make you do any cooking, hammering or cracking they ought to give you a rebate. I feel the the same way about “Cook your own steak” at the Elks Lodge. What are they paying the cooks for? Don’t they know how to cook? As a rule, I’m leery of any kind of restaurant where they make you get up out of your seat to fetch your food. This IN HOUSE CRX’D includes salad bars,PROOF buffet meals, cookyour-own waffles or make-your-own omelet. Heck, I don’t even like having to butter my own toast and if I’d have wanted to wait in line for my meals I’d have joined the Army. As much as I don’t like having to get up

’ve never been that fond of ribs. I don’t like wearing an apron like a toddler, getting barbecue sauce all over my face, and feeling like I need to take a shower after I eat. Then there’s the gristle that gets stuck between your teeth requiring you to do three hours of oral surgery with a toothpick. It’s all just too much work for me. I feel the same way about limbless vertebrates. When you go to a seafood shack you’re overwhelmed with all types of fish you’ve never heard of. So you play it safe and order something you’ve had a personal relationship with, like trout. But VSA then you have to carefully masticate every little morsel or risk getting a bone stuck in your throat and having a complete stranger perform the Heimlich on you. Or you splurge on lobster and have to select your dinner from a tank. That’s way too many decisions.

to get my food I hate it even more when they bring your dessert or steak to the table and then cook it over a flame. Who can enjoy a night out when at any minute you could be called upon for firefighting duty? I love oranges but they are as messy as ribs. Corn on the cob with lots of butter and salt is yummy, and artichokes are as good as it gets, but talk about work! Trying to get to the delicious “meat” of an artichoke is like watching a horse eat a cactus. It’s all just too high-maintenance for me. So, too, is any food that requires having your stomach pumped after you eat it, or any recipe that begins, “First kill a rattlesnake.” Other great tasting high maintenance foods include olives, peaches, fondue, and nuts, which can be as hard to open as most modern plastic packaging these days. One fancy joint I went in once (by accident) even made water too much work. The server asked if I wanted my water gassed, sparkling, plain or flavored? And if so, what flavor? A personal note to servers: I have enough trouble remembering my own name so, please, don’t bother introducing yourself. I don’t want to have a relationship with you, or look at pictures of your mountain bike. And don’t tell me what to wear, like shoes, jacket or a tie. The only time I wear those is for funerals and you don’t look that sick. Having to know which wine goes with what and keeping up with all the food recalls is hard work. And please, stop it with all the additives. I shouldn’t have to be a chemist to know what’s in the food I’m eating. Between all the multi-syllabled butyl-poly-whatyamacallits and all the foreign food on the menu, I might have to enroll in continuing education just to get something to eat. At the very least, to be on the safe side I suppose I should learn the French word for horse meat. To me, the perfect low maintenance foods that require the least amount of work are hamburgers, donuts, pizza and take-out. Milk is also perfect, unless of course, you have to milk the cow first. Then it requires special skills. My list of low maintenance foods used to be longer but Hostess Bakeries went bankrupt and so there are no more Twinkies, Hostess Cup Cakes or sugar coated chocolate turnovers. I am officially still in mourning and don’t know if I want to live in a world without DingDongs or Ho-Hos. wwwLeePittsbooks.com

On the Edge of Common Sense

by Baxter Black, DVM

Pegasus Flies Again

I

t was a peaceful Utah winter morning. Levi stood next to his bedroom window and pulled back the shade. He squinted as his eyes took in the brilliance of a new day. Fresh snow lay like a blanket over the corrals, the meadows and the mountains beyond. Puffy little cotton ball clouds clung to the peaks like chimney smoke. The skyblue background made it look like God had decorated Heaven’s wall with ceramic tiles. As if on cue, at the far end of the loading alley, Levi saw a vision. A CR VSA reflection of a fairy tale illustration from his childhood; it was Pegasus the flying white stallion thundering down the alley, snow billowing behind him and his wings spread as if to mount to the sky! “Holy Nephi!” Levi yelled at himself!

In seconds the vision took shape. It was not Pegasus … it was his 3,500 dollar, comin’ 2, cream-colored with a white blaze, newly purchased, future sire quarterhorse colt! What appeared to be wings was actually a shiny galvanized corral gate. Positioned in its exact center was the head of the wild-eyed colt! Levi’s adrenalized dilated pupils noted the colt’s trajectory was so center-fire that neither end of the 8' gate was touching the alley boards! IN HOUSE The colt swungPROOF into an opening CRX’D of an adjacent pen full of ranch horses. They broke apart like a hand grenade going off! Those that didn’t go straight up went out the other side crumpling a second gate into tin foil! It took Levi three minutes and 26 seconds to dress, call

the hired man and reach the pen. The colt had one more trick. He made a pass toward the broken gate, somehow stepped on his galvanized necklace, did a tuck-and-roll flip flop, popped out of the noose and landed on his back, unharmed, to everyone’s relief! Reminiscing with his wife later at breakfast Levi said, “I’m not sure what we’d have done if he hadn’t pulled himself loose.” “You could have roped him,” she said. “I doubt it,” he said. “Sure you could. You’ve got a shiny buckle there on the dresser that says you won the Big Loop in Jordan Valley. If that’s not a test of your big loopin’, I don’t know what is!” www.baxterblack.com

Horses and DNA

T

here are many things in our modern day lives that, as humans, stir us up, but there are very few things left in life that actually stir our souls. Part of this is the simple fact that so much of our soul has been replaced by our DNA. It used to be that who we were determined how we lived and acted but now we try to determine how we are going to live and act based on who others think we are. I know that to many of you this may sound confusing, but before you tune me out completely let me ask you this… Is your relationship with your horse a part of your DNA or is it a part of your soul? As an aging baby boomer mine is really the first generation that has ever grown up totally without the basic necessity of horses. In other words, since that first fellow threw his leg over the back of that primitive equine so many years ago we have not only co-habitated

and co-existed, but rather we have cooperated with each other in order to survive in this ever evolving and ever changing world in which we are living. Although many things about each of us (man and horse) continue to evolve, the most dramatic change throughout the entire process has been man’s recent lack of the need for a horse as a basic necessity of life. I can still remember as a child listening to all of those stories from my parents, grandparents and even great grandparents, and it always amazed me at how many times horses were an integral part of their story. Although it was up hill both coming and going to school, many times that journey was made on horseback. Thus man instantly became a judge of horse flesh and a man’s horse flesh immediately began to judge the man. In a world of survival of the fittest it was often

the one with the fittest horse who went a long way down the road of survival. Those who came up short on the equine end often failed to survive. The horse had become an integral part of a man, a part of his role in society—the horse became a status symbol. Just as my generation longs to imagine life with a horse just a generation or two ago, one could not imagine life without the equine element. That is why I continue to ask the question… Is your horse a part of your DNA or your soul? I know that many of you may be wondering what difference it makes anyway. If you happen to be one of those who wonder that, then it is very evident horses are a part of your DNA. Horses are merely a part of your ever-evolving physical being that really has no emotional tie to said horses. As the horse continues to decrease in significance in your life for basic needs and survival, your body continues to evolve farther and farther away from that intrinsic need to be around horses. As your world becomes more and more automated and technically driven, the more your DNA evolves into existing naturally without horses. I know this is pretty deep stuff for a typical Sports Medicine Stable edition, but stay with me for just a moment and see if I might be on to something. Several months ago I had another cardiac event. It was very similar to the one I had six-plus years ago but the reaction to it has no really comparable elements. Sure, there is healthy eating, no smoking, moderate alcohol and exercise that are very important, but to be very honest I had been doing all of those things to no avail. I was addressing my DNA (trying to change my body) all the while completely ignoring my very soul. “Very few things will effect you more than realizing your own mortality.” That’s just a fancy way of saying “I don’t want to die!” Sitting in that chair across the desk from my cardiologist I learned that my secret to a long life was going to be determined less by addressing my DNA, than exposing my soul. Now I know I have really lost most of you and the rest of you think I kinda sound like a “Cowboy Jimmy Swaggart” who is fixing to call for your hard earned dollars. But, before you pass judgment please hear me out because in reality I am not preaching to you. Rather I am


88-89 Sports Med_Layout 1 3/6/13 10:44 AM Page 89

telling you one of the most important things you will ever know. Your quality of life doesn’t depend on what some scientist may find in your DNA nearly as much as it depends on your ability to expose your soul in order to find JOY in your life. For me that JOY is found in my family, my friends, my faith and my future, but it is also found when I am interacting with my horses. Although they can sense when I am having a really bad day the best part is that they don’t give a horse turd about it. All they know is that I am the guy who feeds, protects, teaches, nurtures and does so many other things for them. Although many people may see it as a one-sided equine-driven relationship, the truth of the matter is I am receiving the greatest dividends. My horses are not merely a part of a sport that I choose to participate in, they are a very important part of my living a long, healthy, productive life. They are physical exercise, psychological therapy, intellectual stimulation and companionship all rolled into one very distinct package. Yes, my horse is my

personal trainer, psychiatrist, professor and loyal friend wrapped in blue dun wrapping paper with a distinctive little mark on his forehead to serve as a bow. So here’s the crux of this month’s article… If your horse is nothing more than a tool designed to help you use your DNA in order to survive in this world you are missing out on one of the greatest resources you can ever hope to tap into. Yeah, I know that my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great etc. granddaddy was using his horse to try and out run Tyrannosaurus Rex and I am merely trying to use mine to get to the pay window at the South Texas Championships. No matter the physical or social need the emotional and psychological rewards are the same. A man is a better man if he has a horse in his life. And, on a personal note, I think a woman sure looks sexy on the back of one… Until next month may you find joy in the presence of your horse.

He hollered at the kids and we all proceeded to the barn to saddle horses. Boss told me to get the four-wheeler so we could find out exactly where the steers were and he and the kids would come horseback. Fortunately, for us, we live on a rural COMPLETE GROUND PREPARATION IN ONE PASS! road and most everyone nearby knows us. All of our neighbor’s kind of reach out and help each other. Boss helped the kids’ saddle and was in the process of saddling his own horse. “Buzzy, you and June head on to the road and be careful,” he prompted. The kids led their horses away from the hitching post and June methodically untracked her horse by leading him a Choose From 4 Popular Models Call Us Now for More Details! little longer than her dad would have Major Credit Cards Accepted liked. Buzzy, by the same token, led his Choose the original horse off and cinched him up again. Naturally, he gathered up a rope and for your arena and your horse! hung it over his saddle horn. Buzzy also cinched up June’s horse and from a dad’s prospective it was taking forever. They were “burning daylight” as the saying goes! “Buzzy, you and June get going (208) 722-5116 • FAX: (208) 722-6012 TOLL FREE: (877) 722-5116 before the steers get clear out of pocket,” PO Box 190 • PARMA, ID 83660 Boss scolded in his frustrated, hurry it www.parmacompany.com f www.arenagroomer.net up, less than patient way. “Now, let’s go!” 90 / APRIL 2013

Boss slammed the barn door shut put his reins over his horse’s head and jumped into his stirrup. When he jobbed the young gelding to head out toward the gate the horse came uncorked and broke in two. Buzzy and June were in shock and turned, horseback by the way, to watch the wreck unfold. And it was a wreck. The blue horse sucked it up and howled like a scalded cat and put on the bucking horse performance of the year. Boss grabbed the saddle horn and proceeded to try and pull the horse up but the gray gelding was having no part of stopping. He was in fine form and any stock producer would have been proud. Boss was “pulling leather” so to speak but it made no difference at all. I had pulled up on the four wheeler just as all this unfolded and I so wished for a camera because it would have had a million views and likes on You Tube. It was a major wreck. Boss put out his best effort but he is a roper not a bronc rider and finally the blue horse laid him on the ground over in the corner of the pen. The look on the kid’s faces was unbelievable. It had been a long time since they had seen their dad bucked off and sprawled in the dirt. The minute Boss was off and not an issue, the blue horse stopped and smugly looked back at his victim. Buzzy rode over and picked him up by the bridle reins and led him back to where Boss was staggering to his feet. No one said a word. Finally, June Bug rode over and her eyes took in all that was before her. Well, you know how they say from the “mouths of babes” she summed it up pretty well. “I’m not mad, Dad, but if you would have untracked your horse you

wouldn’t be laying there in the dirt,” she said with a knowing wisdom beyond her years. Boss looked up and grimaced. He looked at me and his eyes said, “I don’t want to hear it!” He took a deep breath and stood up. “Here’s your horse, Dad!” Buzzy said cautiously. Boss reached out and grasped the bridle reins. “I understand now why we need to untrack our horses first, Dad! Seems like a pretty good idea no matter how big a hurry you are in, huh?” Boss never said a word. He reset his saddle, recinched the horse and led him off. Yep! He untracked him and cinched him up again. “Dad, you might want to untrack him again,” June said in her wise and most sincere voice. “I sure don’t want him throwing you down in the dirt again. Untracking two times might be a good idea with that horse. I’m not going to ride him unless I untrack him.” And she went on and on about how important it is to untrack your horse. Boss wasn’t about to look up at her. He methodically led the horse around and stepped up on him. The gelding was done. He trotted out the gate on a loose rein. Buzzy and the June followed Boss to the road and I brought up the rear on the four-wheeler. It is amazing what kids learn and how they learn it. I suppose we should all take a lesson. Kids watch what we do and they learn from what they see. We couldn’t have hit home a better lesson than untracking your horse before you get on. Buzzy and June won’t ever forget it and even if it takes a little longer it is still a good idea. Oh yeah, the steers had come back into the catch pen by the time we got down to where they were. Guess they knew it was getting close to feeding time. Boss, well he didn’t have much to say the rest of the evening and yep, next morning he was a bit stove up and sore. Ole Gray, well he hasn’t pitched since. Of course, we never fail to untrack him either.

Hello

I

like driving. You get to see a lot of the country and it gives you time to think. I used to listen to talk radio, but I’ve lost interest in politics so I just drive along in silence. I know if you’re under forty, you think that’s crazy. But if you’re fifty or older, you understand. Not long ago, I had a long drive to make. I started in Texas, and my destination was Nebraska. By about 5 p.m. I decided to stop and get something to eat. I know you shouldn’t eat fast food, but McDonald’s was right along the freeway so I pulled in. I had been driving most of the day, so I decided to go inside and get out of

92 / APRIL 2013

the car for a while. The place I stopped was somewhere in Kansas, and it was a pretty evening. I’ve always liked Kansas, with its wide open spaces and hard working people— people who have made a living with their hands through farming and ranching and understand the meaning of a hard day’s work. Those people have been the backbone of our country, and I have an appreciation for that. When I first started traveling, being from California, I had never seen older people sitting around in restaurants visiting. I’m sure it happens, but I had never seen that growing up. But in Kansas, you see it a lot. So, I walked into McDonald’s and after I got my food I sat down in the back by myself. About five tables away, there was a group of older grey haired women that were visiting and laughing, and I liked it. I have no idea if this is correct, but judging by their age, I assumed that most if not all of these women were widows. This was the place where they got together on a Thursday evening to catch up and visit. About that time, an older couple walked in. I’m guessing they were in their late seventies or early eighties, and he was holding her hand. They both had on blue jeans and flannel shirts, and you could tell they had worked hard during their lives. He was bent over just a little as he walked, and his gait had been slowed by the years. He nodded to me as he passed, and they sat down two tables away. He told her that he was going to have his usual and asked her if she would like the same as she usually had. She turned her head slowly to look at him but she never spoke. He said, “Okay, that’s a deal,” and he went to order. She sat quietly and stared straight ahead until her husband returned. He told her that it sure smelled good as he took her napkin and placed it in her lap. He

unwrapped the small sandwich he had gotten for her, and put it in her hands. Again, there was not a word from her the entire time. He commented on the weather and how tasty the food was as she ate very slowly. When he finished, he encouraged her to eat a little more. Then finally, he asked her if she was finished and took the remainder of her sandwich out of her hands. He took the napkin out of her lap and gently wiped the corners of her mouth. He cleaned up their dinner, and told her that he was full, and asked her if she had enough; again, not a sound. He got up, helped her up, and held her hand as they left. I watched as they got into an older pickup and drove away. It’s been said that in order to accomplish great things, you have to be committed. You have to be committed to something that you’re passionate about, and that you truly love. They say that when things are going well, everyone is committed. But when things get tough, most people quit. I saw a man in an unlikely spot the other evening that should have his picture in the dictionary right beside the word commitment. The simple definition should be “when you say you’re going to do something, stick to it and see it through no matter how tough things get.” People are always looking for heroes. I saw one the other day in the middle of Kansas. He wasn’t a sports star, he probably wasn’t talented with a rope, and he didn’t appear to be wealthy. He was just a man who had made a commitment to the woman he loved, and when he said, “for better or worse,” he meant it. Until next month, Thanks for your time

A Navicular Nightmare Shortly after purchasing my gelding I had him checked by several vets. We took x-rays and that told the story – my gelding’s worst nightmare, navicular! He had multiple holes in both front feet. I tried all the conventional treatments but there was no improvement. I was told to consider surgery on both front legs because, in his condition, he would soon have to be destroyed.

Miracles Can Happen Feeling desperate, I took a chance on something a friend had told me about. I called TLC Animal Nutrition and started him on several products that are specifically designed for horses with navicular. Two weeks after I started the program he was sound. Six months later I had more x-rays taken and the vet said it was a "miracle" and I have to agree. The holes on the navicular bone were filling in. "Angel" has taken me to the state finals each year, very impressive for a horse that may have otherwise been destroyed.

Another Second Chance I had such great results with the first horse, I purchased another problem horse that I saved from certain death. This horse is fourteen years old and has been lame for more than half his life. Again x-rays confirmed five holes in the right front foot, navicular. But this wasn’t his only problem. This horse also had arthritis so badly he could barely shuffle off at a fast walk. He literally smelled rotten, had a very bad hair coat and was loaded with large and small strongyles. The former owner sold him to me for one dollar and was sure he would never walk a sound step. Again I contacted TLC Animal Nutrition for a recommendation. We changed his feed and added TLC’s Performance Plus, DBG Min and Niacin along with Glucosamine and Ultimate DE.

Don’t Give Up Today I have two healthy horses and would like to share with everyone that if it hadn’t been for TLC Animal Nutrition products, their knowledge, and my persistence and faith in God, these horses would not be here today. I know there are many nutritional companies out there, but I just can’t pull myself away from the correct and honest information I get each time from TLC Animal Nutrition. To place an order, receive a free booklet or learn more about the TLC products, call toll-free today.
