Just the Way It Is June 2013 by Ben Clements

A

s you probably know by now, I love summer. June is here and that means warm weather, and for some of us it actually means HOT weather. That is ok by me because I can sweat a lot easier than I can shiver. I hope you all are having as much fun this summer as I am. It is a busy time, but a good time of the year to be a roper. This month I want to talk to you about life in general. Believe me I have no advice but one thing I have come to realize is life is short and life is very fragile. If you are like me, many times we tend to take it for granted. When I was younger a year took forever, now it seems to fly by. I can remember my grandmother saying that a year is just like the blink of an eye. I never understood what that meant. However, it is beginning to dawn on me what she was saying. Last month my wife and I celebrated our five-year wedding anniversary. It seems like yesterday we got married. I have been working for USTRC for more than 16 years. When you say it like that it seems so long ago, but really 16 years is a short time. I still feel like a young kid who is going out into this “big ole’ World” lost and just looking to make it. The world around us is evolving, changing and always growing. I am not really that old, but when I left home and went to college, I did not have a cell phone. My how times have changed.

TyAnn, my daughter, is two years old and she has one. Ok, so maybe it doesn’t actually call anyone, but she can play games and knows quiet well how to use it. That is way better than most of us. Kids today cannot go anywhere without a phone, computer or iPad. Frankly, I can’t either. Our world is fast-paced and if we don’t adapt, we will be left behind. I, however, miss the simpler times. I miss being a kid and just having to worry about playing and sleeping and maybe eating a little bit, but not where I was going to play, sleep, or where my meal was going to come from. I look back and realize how carefree and happy my growing up actually was. I miss being that care free, worry free, independent kid with no issues to dwell upon or problems. Today society, through our own doing, places greater stress on our lives. We put a lot of stress on ourselves that is self-induced. What I am about to say here is easier said than done and I know this full well because I have yet to make it work very well for me. However, let me encourage you to pause and take a deep breath. Look around and smell the roses. Take a stroll with your son or daughter. Stop and pick a flower or look at a rock. Don’t let the weight of the world get you down. God will never give you more than you can handle. Be assured that you, with the help of God, can accomplish or conquer anything that arises. When you feel like there is no way out, or that you are trapped in something, just relax. Clear your mind, take a deep breath and look for the path you are supposed to take then go for it. It might be a rocky path, or even uphill, but nothing is too rough or too steep. Like it or not

sometimes we have to go slow and sometimes we will roll along at break neck speeds, but whatever the case, the path and the ride is well worth it. I look back over my life and there are many times that I reflect on instances and situations that at the time I didn’t like. In reflection I realize things were not really so bad. It is hard for us to realize those things now, but be aware that one day when you look back, it will all be all right. God never gives us more than he will help us handle. Of course, life is busy, changing constantly and always a challenge. However, at some point we have to pause and heal and minister to ourselves. We are no help, inspiration or encouragement to anyone if we are not taking care of ourselves. Think about those carefree kids we once were. Look at the kids today. They play, they go to school, they eat and sleep, some rope, some do football or golf, but no matter they pretty much roll with the punches. We did that at one time as well. I sometimes pray for the Lord to help me carry this load and I think He mutters something back to the effect, “Well, Ben, none of that is stuff I asked you do!” That pretty much says a mouthful. Are you on overload? To much on your “to do” list? Whose fault is that? How many times this week have you stopped to take a deep breath and just pause and look around? What happened to that carefree fun loving, easy going kid with nothing to worry about and very little stress? Hmmm, maybe he has his priorities mixed up! And that is just the way it is….

USTRC Calendar Plan you next roping event by clicking on the USTRC Calendar at www.ustrc.com. The calendar is filled with great team roping events and is the best way to keep track of where to go. Also don’t forget to put the Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping on your agenda. The action starts October 26, 2013 and will run through November 3, 2013.

Flex Earnings When awarded $1,000 in Flex Earnings from placing at USTRC events ropers may count the greater of their winnings on Flex Earnings (not to exceed $3,000) toward qualifying for Regional or National Shoot-Out positions. The difference between winnings and $1,000 in Flex Earnings will be considered Applied Earnings and will not expire at the end of each season. For example, if the winning amount is $1,364, the roper will have $1,000 in Flex Earnings and $364 in Applied Earnings. WSTR winnings up to $3,000 are counted as Flex Earnings, which will expire at the end of the USTRC Season.

USTRC Regional Finals USTRC Regional Finals are just around the corner. Check the ads in this issue to find the Regional Finals you want to attend. Ropers, make sure you are eligible by participating in 2013 season USTRC Sanctioned, Affiliate, Grassroots or Regional preliminary divisions prior to the Shoot-Out division you want to enter, or a 2013 WSTR event.

By the Numbers 2012 USTRC Sanctioned & Affiliate Ropings Distance Ropers Travel to Events by State

How Far Will Ropers Go in Their Recreational Pursuit?

Y

ou know, when you think about it, our sport is just not the easiest in the world to engage in. Never mind all the paraphernalia you have to purchase in order to participate, e.g. ropes, horses, trucks, trailers, tack, gloves, dummies, etc., etc.. What about just getting there? Now if you are just a local roper spending most of your weekends and evenings in your own practice arena or motoring just a few miles down the road to your local jackpots, your travel expenses remain well in hand. But once you start getting serious about this sport of team roping, local jackpots are just not going to scratch your progressively growing competitive itch. You’ve got to spread your roping wings. Let’s go chase some big money! Now added to the above listed paraphernalia are things like: gas, lodging, stalls, meals, vehicle wear-and-tear, parking, tolls, vaccinations, coggins, etc., etc.. When you add it all up, this recreational pursuit of ours is not like bowling (a ball, a pair of shoes, a lane, and . . . ). Whose idea was it to start roping anyway?! Ah, but we are addicted, aren’t we? And besides, we are going to win it all back!! While it’s not like we didn’t know all this going in, I still get amazed at the amount of travel ropers are willing to undertake in the name of recreation. Thus the facts presented herein––the amount of travel our ropers embark on––and to see what effect a roper’s geographic location might have on the equation, I’ve broken it down by state. Let’s start with the Table, “2012 USTRC Sanctioned & Affiliate Ropings, Distance Ropers Travel to Events by State”. The numbers in this table come from the following source: all of USTRC member ropers who attended at least one sanctioned or affiliate roping in the U.S in 2012 and who also had a valid home zip code in the U.S. At the bottom of the table you will find the totals. I will use those figures to explain what each column means. The first column is the states in which ropers live, as per their given home zip code. The first number at the bottom is 23,712, which is the total number of member ropers who participated in at least one sanctioned or affiliate roping for whom we have a valid home zip code. A side note here, if a roper moved during the course of 2012 or an erroneous zip code was given to USTRC or an address was recorded incorrectly, some of these distances will be off. But there are relatively few of these inaccuracies so they should not effect the final results by very much. But on an even further side note, if you are not getting your monthly copy of SuperLooper, we have found that it’s often because there has been a mistake made in the recording of your address or you have moved and forgot to tell us. Please feel free to call the Stephenville office (254-968-0002) or the SuperLooper office (505-899-1870) to correct the problem. We don’t want you missing the incredibly valuable information you can glean from your monthly 12 / JUNE 2013

SuperLooper like this column, for instance (ahem). Okay, so we have 23,712 ropers included in this assessment and they are broken out by the number of ropers in each state. That makes up the first and second columns of the Table. The third column, “Total # of Event Attendants”, is the number reached by adding together all of the events attended by each roper from that state. Here is Connecticut, for example: Roper 1 attended 1 event Roper 2 attended 2 events Roper 3 attended 3 events Roper 4 attended 4 events Roper 5 attended 6 events Roper 6 attended 9 events For a total of 25 event attendants. But these were not all different events as three of these ropers went to the Cinch National Finals as well as the Guthrie Shoot-Out Championships. Below is a breakout of where each Connecticut roper went to rope in the 2012 season. This same concept applies when you are looking at the other states as well. Here is the tally: 6 Connecticut ropers attended 21 different events for a total of 25 “Event Attendants” in 2012. It is quite interesting to see how far afield that ropers on the “fringe” of the US team roping domain have to travel to engage in their sport––from Idaho to Nevada, Texas, and Oklahoma, as well as down to Florida and Georgia. It is quite impressive and kudos to you Connecticut ropers for your effort and dedication. But now back to the main table. The fourth column is “Avg # of Events Attended” by each roper. It is the result of column 3, “Total # of Event Attendants”, divided by column 2, “# of Ropers”, and it tells you the average number of events that were attended by the ropers from each state. The final column, “Avg Distance to Events”, is the average

one-way distance that each roper in each state traveled to attend each event. So back to Connecticut for a second and you can see that the six ropers that live there attended an average of 4.2 events each and the average distance they traveled to attend each of those events was 1,231.0 miles. OK, you southwest ropers, think about that for a moment. These guys deserve a lot of credit! Now let me define what “distance” means in the Table. It is the linear measure in miles between the “centroid” of the roper’s home zip code and the “centroid” of the event arena’s location zip code, AS THE CROW FLIES, in other words, as a straight line on a map and not by any road. Here is how the US Postal Service defines a “centroid”: A ZIP Code’s centroid is a point near the center of the areas of a polygon for a 5-Digit ZIP Code. The centroid is calculated as the internal balance point, based on the coordinate extremes of the polygon. In cases where the polygon is irregular, the centroid may be adjusted so that ZIP Code labels never fall outside of the polygon. Got that? Good. The Table is sorted by the last column, “Avg Distance to Events”. So, the members of the states that had to travel the farthest average distance to events are at the top, the ones that had to travel the least average distance are at the bottom. The winner of the “Which State Members Had to Travel the Farthest” was, not surprisingly, Alaska. There were five guys that ventured forth from the Land of the Midnight Sun to ropings in the continental US. Four of them were “snowbirds” that roped at Lasso Del Sol in Scottsdale, AZ while a fifth attended several ropings in California and one in Nevada. Hopefully their ropes were de-iced before they entered the arena. You will notice that most of the states that are at or near the top of the list are what I would call “fringe” states, states that are on the periphery of the more geographic centers of roping in the Southwest and Southeast. The Northeast and Atlantic Coast are well represented in the Top Ten with Connecticut at #2, New Jersey at #4, Pennsylvania at #8, Delaware at

By the Numbers continued #9 and Maryland at #10. The Northwest was represented by Washington (5th) and Oregon (7th) with Michigan at 6th and Hawaii at 3rd finishing out the Top Ten. The major reason these states were in the top ten was the fact that, other than Hawaii, none of these states had either sanctioned or affiliate ropings in 2012. Checking the average distance to events, it ranged, for those not mentioned yet, from 730 miles for Hawaii (lots of water miles) to 376 for Maryland. Switching to the foot of the list, states that had to travel the least distance, I was not surprised to find Oklahoma and Texas. The average distance a Texan had to travel was only 129 miles while Okies only had an average of 131 miles. That’s a far cry from Alaska’s 2,451 or even Connecticut’s 1,231. Arizona was third from the bottom at 143 miles followed by three southern states,. Alabama (146), Georgia (149) and Tennessee (151). The four remaining states in the “bottom ten” were Colorado (152 miles), New Mexico, (153 miles), Arkansas (161 miles) and Utah (163 miles). Now let’s find out what state members went to the most number of ropings. Delaware leads that category with 8.5 events attended per roper. There were only four ropers from the First State who attended events but they went to a bunch of them. The four attended 2, 9, 11 and 12 events each respectively. Next was Maryland at 7.4 aided by the infamous roping Brown Family (Kenny, and Mary Ann) going to 15 and 14 events each, respectively. Next was New York whose 47 ropers averaged 5.6 ropings each. A lot of that you can attribute to the Osburn Arena in Campbell, NY with their popular monthly gatherings. The next four in order were Texas (5.1), Oklahoma (4.8), New Mexico (4.7), and Kansas at 4.3 events per roper. The bottom seven in this category, not surprisingly, are, in reverse order, Alaska (2.0), West Virginia (2.1), New Jersey (2.2), with Wisconsin, Ohio and Hawaii all at 2.3 average number of events attended. I took the liberty of choosing four ropers at random and producing maps of the distances they traveled to attend USTRC sanctioned and affiliate ropings. They come from three different regions of the country and I picked those that had attended six different events so each was on more or less equal footing. My logic was to see if there were significant differences in travel distances depending upon the part of the country they were from. The first is Rodney Acker of Centre, Alabama. The second was Jeff Trawick of Fort Worth and the third was the roping couple of Bruce and Linda Teague of Globe, Arizona. The six events that Rodney attended were in Texas, Florida, and Tennessee as well as Alabama. If Rodney were a crow, he would have traveled 1,367 miles to get to his six ropings or 2,734 miles if he decided to go and come back to each one. But in order to put the “as the crow flies” distance in perspective, I went to Google maps and actually drew out the most direct routes for each roping Rodney attended and recorded that mileage in the “Roping Distances” box below the “as the crow flies” distances. I thought they would be good examples of how much farther road distances are from crow fly distances. In Rodney’s case, his crow fly miles were 1,367 and his road miles were 1,674, a difference of 307 miles or 22% more miles. Our second roper was Jeff Trawick from Fort Worth. His total crow fly miles were 1,286 while his road miles were 1,470, a difference of 184 miles or 14%. Obviously, the roads are straighter in Texas. Our third faction, the Teagues, traveled 1,152 crow fly miles while their road miles were 1,495, a difference of 343 miles or 30%. So what part of the country you are from makes a difference in your mileage. Out west, there just aren’t as many roads as there are farther east which makes for the possibility of more indirect routes. Texas just has more roads. Keep this in mind when you look at the Table crow fly miles. You might want to add anywhere from 15% to 30% to those numbers to get closer to the actual road mileage figures, depending on what part of the country you’re from. With each map, I have also included the farthest distance traveled and the average distance traveled for both crow fly and road miles. Since they are more accurate, let’s look at road mileage. Rodney Acker took the longest trip of the three, motoring 787 miles to the NRS Team Roping Classic in Decatur, TX. Jeff had the second longest trip when he went to the Colorado Championships in Colorado 14 / JUNE 2013

Springs. The Teagues had the shortest longest trip when they went to Fort Mohave, AZ but they went there twice, once for the Laughlin Team Roping Finals and then again for the Colorado River Classic. Rodney had the longest average distance traveled at 279 miles, followed by Jeff at [245] and the Teagues close behind at 245. So there are really not significant differences between the three. The overall average distance they traveled was between 280 and 245. Rodney did travel the farthest overall but a fair amount of that is on the strength of the longer trip he took to Decatur. So, all in all, it doesn’t look like there are significant differences between different parts of the country as to how far ropers travel to rope. But do keep in mind that this is a very small sampling. In any event, I want to give credit to all of you, the weekend warriors who load up on numerous occasions to make significant treks to pursue the sport you love. My Resistol is off to all of you. And happy traveling!

Hello Ropers! I

PHOTO BY LONE WOLF PHOTOGRAPHY

t’s an awesome month for the sport of team roping. So many great events to partake in for both competitors and spectators. The Bob Feist Invitational and the Reno Rodeo Invitational are can’t miss events this month. Speaking of can’t miss events, I can’t wait for you guys to hear what is being added to the Cinch National Finals of Team Roping. Read more about it in the NFTR section of this issue. June is such an exciting month here at the USTRC. We kick off our Regional Finals at the end of June in Paso Robles, CA and the excitement continues through September. We have seven spectacular regional events for ropers to fill their pockets and collect Flex Earnings. Then before we know it, it will be time for the Cinch National Finals of Team Roping. Don’t forget to check the entry and stall deadlines, we don’t want you to miss out. Also, this year we are letting you preenter your draw-in runs, so be sure to write the word “Draw” as your partner on your entry forms! (For example, if you are a header wanting to draw a heeler, write your name as header and “Draw” in the space marked for the heeler. Thanks to you the roper, there’s more added money up for grabs in the Regional Finals Gold Plus division than ever before. USTRC sets aside a portion of every Gold Plus

membership to use as added money at these special events. The more support the program receives, the more we are able to give back. This year, USTRC guarantees a minimum of $17,500 cash will be added to each of the seven Regional Gold Plus ropings. So again, thanks to you a minimum of $122,500, up from $105,000 a year ago will be added in 2013! Now that we have warmer temperatures and longer days on our side, it is time to get a game plan together so we can be competitive at the Regional and National Finals. Our horses should be in shape by now as well as our roping arms. I think it is very important that we remember we need to be practicing for ourselves as well as our horses. When I played golf it was all about preparing for “me” mentally and physically. Now that I am a team roper, I need to prepare myself as well as my horses, mentally and physically. Another thing I think a lot of competitors struggle with is the “slump” stage. We all go through “slumps” in any activity we do. It is very difficult to be 100% all the time, even Tiger Woods goes through various slumps. (Unfortunately the latest one has lasted longer than he would like, but hey, he is back on the climb.) Many competitors panic when they hit their “slump” when in reality we just need to take a step back from the situation and go back to the fundamentals. I know it is easier said than done, especially when you are putting up money to compete and your short on time, like maybe the roping is next week. I have struggled with the “slumps” in golf but you have to keep grinding it out and staying after it. Fundamentals are so important and will always be the foundation on which you stand and most of the time it is just one simple little thing you are not doing that is causing all the stress. So, this Finals season before we start panicking, lets step back and as Waylon Jennings would say “Get back to the basics.” We are anticipating an exceptional Finals season and we hope to give the best production to the ropers as possible. Please do not hesitate to let us know how we are doing and what we can do to make it better for the ropers. We are excited to see you at the events this month and upcoming Regional Finals and Cinch National Finals of Team Roping. Don’t forget to pay attention to deadlines for entries and stalls and if you have any flex earnings questions, we can help! Good Luck to everyone at the West Coast Regional, we can’t wait to see you in the winner’s circle! Let’s Saddle up, it’s time to rope! — Lauren Hardman

aying foundation is hard work any way you look at it. Whether you are building a house, getting in shape or raising kids, setting the right foundation provides the strength needed to make it all work and come together. Cultures and lifestyles are built on foundations of ages gone by and no matter how difficult the world may become there are just some foundations and traditions that will stand the test of time. Ropers, cowboys, ranchers, and rodeo people come from a lineage that has lasted through the ages. It is bred into all that you are. You cannot buy it, you cannot design it and ultimately you cannot change it. It is something instilled into all that you are and ingrained into your inner most being. It will be with you when you die and you will leave it for those coming after you. It is that ritual and lifestyle that defines where you came from and where you are going and why. Cade and Rance Bray are cousins. They know about the cowboy lifestyle. It is ingrained deep into their souls and they have watched since the time they were little boys to see how it is done and what it takes to get where you are going. They have seen the joy, the fun, the struggle, the discipline and the rewards. They have watched their granddads and their dads and come to know what is expected and why. They have embraced family and the support of mothers, grandmothers, siblings, dads and grandfathers. 22 / JUNE 2013

Cade Bray and Rance Bray This is a story about roping but more than that is it a story about family. It is about watching kids grow and learn and reaping the rewards of time spent and hours committed to making, not just good ropers, but good people with good character, morals and good intentions. It is reaping the rewards of hard work, valued traditions and maintaining a devotion and appreciation for family and all that it stands for. Ninety five thousand dollars is a lot of money. It was only a portion of the incredible prize line offered in the #12 ShootOut at the 2012 Cinch USTRC National Finals of Team Roping. The prize line also included Martin Championship Trophy Saddles, Tony Lama Ostrich Boots, Gist Championship Gold Trophy Buckles and Western Horseman Collector’s Prints. Thirty teams came back to the short go round and the top twenty teams would get a check. With a total payout of $381.600 it was a pretty sure bet the competition would be fierce. The short go round would be a tough roping. Pressure, no matter how you looked at it, would be a factor. As the short go round unfolded it almost appeared the top six high call back

teams were scrambling. Nerves were an issue. Cade Bray kept hearing his dad ask if he was nervous. Part of him wished he would quit asking. Couldn’t he tell? Wouldn’t you be? Cade had roped his thirteenth high call back steer for partner, Jahew Thorp, in 9.52. It was a good run but just not enough to take him to first place. He hoped his second high call back steer would be the push he needed to win the roping. When Cade and Rance rode into the box for their short round steer they knew they needed an 8.52 to take the lead in the roping. “It is the same roping, the same run as any twenty-five dollar jackpot,” Cade Bray kept thinking. Knowing Rance

would be there to back him up he left nerves, inhibitions, pressure and outcome hanging on the fence of the roper’s box. He nodded and went to rope like he had been roping all day. He had absolutely no doubt Rance had his back covered. When the dust cleared 8.46 highlighted the clock. The pair took the lead in the average and there was only one team left to rope. What was done was done. When the high call back team legged on their short go round steer both Rance and Cade took a deep breath. They had just won the #12 Shoot-Out and $95,200 was going to the bank. “It was such a mixed bag of emotions,” Cade said. “I was so nervous but I didn’t want my dad to know. I wanted a good run and I knew Rance would do his job.” “It is a change of pace for a bronc rider,” Rance Brays said. “The pressure is the same. I hoped to rope smart but I didn’t dwell on it or give it a lot of thought. I guess I’m not a bronc rider anymore,” he continued with a laugh. “I guess I am officially a team roper.” The #12 Shoot-Out was a very special roping for Rance and Cade Bray. They are proud to have claimed the win but there is just something even more special about having your family involved. It meant a lot to understand and embrace the sacrifices made by those who had gone before you. You knew you were special because you knew your family was special and they were a huge part of your success. As the doors closed on the #12 Shoot-Out . . . And Then There Was One—Rance and Cade Bray were the Champions of the #12 Shoot-Out at the 2012 Cinch USTRC NFTR. Roping and family, traditions, discipline and ability were ingredients that helped to make it happen. SUPERLOOPER MAGAZINE / 23

with Rickey Green Left Hand Importance he left hand is definitely under-appreciated and under-used. I’m going to say that 80% of ropers don’t use their left hand to its full potential. Some ropers do use their left hand to guide and stop their horse. But very few ever master the art of controlling the horse and using their left hand to control the coil and rope direction, all the while controlling the horse and his speed. The left hand, because it holds the coils, is actually the true base and center of the delivery. It’s what the loop hinges and pivots on in the delivery. The left hand is what controls how much rope goes out to the steer’s head when you reach to rope the horns, and how much rope doesn’t go out when you run close, all the while controlling the horse. When heeling, the left hand must control the horse’s speed in the corner and serve as a base and anchor for heeling swing and delivery. Notice in Photo 1 how my left elbow is down and my palm up, as if I had a rifle laying across my palm to fire. This wrist position lets me control my horse and keep the rope aimed at the target. My left hand and elbow are strategically set to have strength in gathering the horse, and leveraging the swing and the delivery off the coil position. You can see in the heeling pictures that my left hand is pointing the coils at the right hock, over the gun barrel and coils. As you look at the delivery, you will notice the importance of the coils’ direction. As the top strand hits the right leg, the rope is tight in a straight line from the coils to the right hock. Someone who swings their left hand around uncontrolled will not have a consistent placement of the top strand to the right hock. Loops will hit high, low and inconsistent. The left hand is so important to the head loop opening up. You should maintain left hand aim through the delivery and slack. If you are wild with the left hand as your loop is in flight, it will change directions or fall short of the target. If a steer moves to the right or 24 / JUNE 2013

slows down, you need to keep the coils pointed to the left base of the horns to maintain the integrity of your delivery. Where the coils are pointed is where the loop will eventually end up. Deliver your loop over the top of your coils, and get your slack on the way back down. A high percentage of headers move their hand left as they grab their slack from the right side. This covers roping front legs, split horns and wave offs. Come over the top of your coils on delivery and shove your left hand to the base, right hand on top crossed at the wrist. This will fix a lot of your problems. Your Friend,

Fly Control to Protect Horses By Heather Smith Thomas Biting flies can be a tremendous irritation to horses. There are several methods of fly control and ways to protect horses from flies that come in from other areas.

MINIMIZING FLY NUMBERS Methods that can help reduce fly population on a farm include use of premise sprays, fly traps, parasitic wasps, and feed-through larvicides. Some flies, however, especially horse flies, deer flies and stable flies, can fly long distances and come to your farm from neighboring regions. Tia Nelson, a veterinarian in Helena, Montana says some horse owners utilize parasitic wasps—the harmless tiny wasps (sometimes called fly predators) that lay eggs in fresh manure. The wasp larvae feed on fly larvae and can help control flies that breed in manure. These wasps should be released early in the fly season. They only work on flies that lay eggs in manure, such as houseflies, horn flies and stable flies, but stable flies are aggressive biters that feed on the horse’s legs and lower body. They have a very painful bite, so the horse spends a lot of time stomping, kicking, licking his legs and swishing his tail. Nancy Hinkle, entomologist at University of Georgia, says horsemen should try to control flies and mosquitoes at the beginning of the warm season—whenever it occurs in their area, before the insect population becomes large. “Become familiar with your stable fly season and try to get ahead of the curve by reducing early populations so there are not so many to reproduce. Cleaning up organic debris (old bedding and manure, decaying plant material) they use as breeding 26 / JUNE 2013

sites is very effective. Old hay or bedding should be completely removed or scattered so it can dry out. These flies must have moist decaying material in which to lay their eggs. Don’t pile up organic material; a pile keeps moisture in and makes ideal habitat for fly larvae. Some people pile up lawn clippings, which may supply enough stable flies to torment all the horses in the neighborhood,” says Hinkle. “Several farms I work for use a feed-through fly killer,” says Nelson. This product is fed in the grain, and goes on through the horse. Some of these contain a larvicide that kills fly larva that hatch in manure. These products (Rabon, Equitrol, Vitaplus with Equitrol) contain tetrachlorvinphos. Other products, such as Simplifly, Solitude IGR, and Equitrol II contain an insect growth regulator (such as diflubenzuron, dimilin or cyromazine) that hinders growth and maturation of immature fly larvae, and they die. Many horse owners think this method is safer than overhead fly sprays in barns. You don’t have to worry about contamination of feed, or irritation of the horses’ eyes. Nelson doesn’t like the feed-through products, however, because they only work in the small area around a stable or pasture, and have no effect on flies that come in from neighboring areas. Another drawback to this method is that stable flies also breed in other material, not just manure. People often become lax in clean-up of old bedding and other organic material, thinking they have the problem under control.

In 2012 more than $5 million in cash and prizes was paid out to team ropers over the nine-day event. This year USTRC guarantees $1 million in cash will be added to the Cinch NFTR. Team ropers will have the opportunity to win lifechanging amounts of money and experience a production like no other. Team ropers compete all year long for eligibility to this coveted event and USTRC is committed to giving you a red carpet event. This year the USTRC is making some modifications to ensure the days are manageable and the quality of cattle is the best it can possibly be. With more than 8,000 teams in 2012 the days ran longer than ropers preferred and stretched the limits of available Cinch NFTR quality cattle. The first modification is the entry fees in the Preliminary events will be $300 per roper and each roper may enter twice. This will allow ropers to enter and either warm up for or become eligible for entry into the crown jewel ropings or the ShootOut Divisions. The Shoot-Out Division entry fees will be $350 per roper and each roper may enter twice. To enter a USTRC National Shoot-Out Division ropers must have USTRC Personal or Flex Earnings. The Priefert US Open is a crowd favorite and certainly an event to watch. This year it is guaranteed to be even more exciting. The roping will be a five-steer average with four full rounds. It will feature the best in the team roping business going head to head and competing for 100% payback. Another great addition to the Cinch NFTR is the United States Invitational Divisions. There will be a US Invitational #12 that will be held on October 30 and a US Invitational #10 (capped at a #6) that will be on October 31. The ropings will 28 / JUNE 2013

be limited to 200 teams in each division. The ropings will be $2,000 per roper and limited to one entry per roper per division. The Invitationals will be open to all USTRC members 30 years old and older on the day of the roping. No Flex Earnings will be required to enter these divisions, with the only eligibility requirement being ropers must have participated in a USTRC Sanctioned, Grassroots, Affiliate, WSTR Qualifier or Regional Finals roping during the 2013 season. This will give USTRC members an opportunity to play big and to win even bigger. There will be an 80% payback in each division with 35 ways to win your money back. The ropings will be three full rounds with the top 20 teams on three steers advancing to the main average short round and the top 30 teams advancing on two steers advancing to a three-steer consolation average short round. The consolation short round will consist of the fastest teams on two steers from any of the three rounds. Teams with three qualified runs, but too long to make the main short round will be allowed to throw out their longest time, or teams with two qualified runs from any two of the three rounds will be eligible. No team will advance to the consolation short round based on one qualified run. The US Invitational Divisions will certainly be a great addition to the Cinch NFTR. The books are open now for the US Invitational ropings, so look in the SuperLooper Magazine or on the website at www.ustrc.com for entry forms and ad info on the US Invitationals. The USTRC is committed to bringing its members great events and always being on the cutting edge of the sport. This year’s 2013 Cinch National Finals of Team Roping is gearing up to be an event to remember. Get entered up and don’t be left out. The Cinch NFTR will be October 26-November 3, 2013 in Oklahoma City. Make plans to be there and we will all have a great time and an opportunity to win awesome amounts of money and tremendous prizes.

l e r a p p A n r e t s e W T he Western Wear business is going well. And while that is good news for Western Apparel retailers, it is even better news for customers. Looking good and feeling good are at the top of the list for consumers this spring. Western apparel is no longer just the rough and tough, heavy denim, long wearing, riveted, seemingly invincible work pants for ropers and ranch hands. Western wear is now a high fashion statement, and in demand across the U.S. and around the world for discriminating buyers that expect more style and comfort in their essential clothing needs. Increased demand has pushed retailers and manufacturers alike to bring what customers want to market; that includes new shapes and styles, and more available selection from buyer’s favorite brands. Of course, the strongest staple is the jean offerings. It’s been belled and blinged and cropped and cut off, but there will always be blue jeans. Consumers expect their jeans to encompass frontier values and wild west virtues. Daily ranch wear needs to be strong, but comfortable enough to wear all day. Why shouldn’t our casual and fashion wear do the same. Yes, we want fabric that feels good and wears like iron, but we also want some embellishments and a little style. What we wear on the ranch is not what we want to wear to the dance.

Cinch Jeans and Shirts At Cinch every day is denim. Every day is jeans. And not just any jeans. Jeans that take the hits and demand nothing in return. Jeans that won’t itch, bunch, sag, or pinch after a weeks’ worth of wear. Jeans that don’t mind their time in the dryer. Yes, we at CINCH need jeans to look cool without the extra effort. We have better things to do – like making jeans.

“This season we are seeing that the gentlemen are stepping out of the box with their denim. There are many new fashion styles that include distressing, stitching and flap pockets. It seems that guys no longer have only one style of jeans, but several to wear for different occasions,” said Julie Christian, NRS Fashion Buyer. Just like your favorite pair of jeans, your cowboy hat says something about you. It’s a way to express yourself! From the crease to the crown and the brim to the embellishments, stylistic options in modern cowboy hats are infinite. So, how do you choose a hat that fits you? Kaci Riggs, Assistant Product Developer for Hatco Inc., offers the following tips for finding your perfect cowboy hat. You want your cowboy hat to fit your personality. You want something that fits you inside and out. It needs to reflect who you are. Functionality is the most important part of a cowboy hat. We can never be worried about it blowing off during ranch work or competition. When it’s time to pull your hat down and just grit your teeth to make your run, you can. Also, people are looking out for their personal health now more than ever and we need to protect our skin. The basic hat brim width is 4 inches. Some ladies can wear 4¼

But we don’t make them just to walk around the office. We make them for the men who are also a little mystified by “Casual Fridays.” Men who think jeans are far more important than a fashion statement. They wear denim as a barrier between themselves and the abrasive world they work in. Cinch jeans aren’t made for men who lounge on plush leather chairs. They’re designed for men who sit on a different kind of leather. The kind that bucks, spins and throws them off.

Tanner Jean by Cinch Cinch delivers what you’ve been asking for – the Tanner jean in a new finish. Offering the same great fit, the medium stonewash Tanner is embroidered with the combination of wave and line pocket stitch, popping of the denim with camel, chestnut, navy and green threads. Look for the Tanner in a retailer near you beginning in June. 30 / JUNE 2013

up to 5 inches. And a lady doesn’t want the crown any taller than about 4 inches in the front; it can rise up some in the back as long as it tapers with your face. Anything less than that and you can’t pull it down on your head. Anything more than that and it just looks too tall. Of course, there are trends. We’ve seen trends change from tall crowns in the ’80’s and ’90’s to much lower crowns, to tall, open crowns again with flat brims. Remember, however, that trends will come and go, but there will always be the timeless classics like the Resistol 20X Black Gold and the Stetson Open Road. Boots have become a staple of fashion in the Western Market. It’s not uncommon to see a cowgirl wearing her boots with a dress these days. In fact they are being designed to be worn that way. New colors and your choice of bling give you the option of dressing up with your boots, or working on the range. From work boots that go straight from the box to the mud, to a custom made pair that are strictly for special occasions, there are nearly as many styles of boots out there as there are stars in a Texas night sky. With so many options to choose from, how can you be sure of the pair that’s right for you? Jennifer June, author of Cowboy Boots: The Art and Sole, gives some advice on finding the perfect pair of cowboy boots to suit your style. A night out or special event can often benefit from a dressier boot. This is a good time to try alligator, emu, ostrich, or less durable materials that can look more refined but aren’t as rugged as leather. A higher heel causes the foot to fit further forward, so you might try a half size larger when shopping for a dress boot. For general walk-around cowboy boots, look for something a little less fussy. A simple all-leather boot goes with just about anything. Shorter boots provide less room for design and less

protection, but are cooler in the summer and can be more comfortable. Look for a lower heel and a rounded toe. If the classic look of vintage boots appeals to you, look for boots that were made in the 1960s and ’70s with subdued colors and a pointed toe. This is a timeless look that will blend well with today’s fashions. A working cowboy needs function more than style. A tall boot protects from brush, bramble, and broncs. A tough, durable leather ensures dependability and longevity while a lower heel (about 1 5/8 inch) can still easily grip the stirrup. Another place to notice some major inclusion into main stream of western fashion are accessories. Even the most conservative dresser can be found with a touch of western styling in their jewelry or bag. New leathers and a full array of colors and styles with just a hint of ‘cowgirl’ in them can make an otherwise uninteresting work outfit into a fun and flirty fashion statement. “Ladies styles are always changing but one thing that we are seeing continue through all seasons is layering, whether be with jewelry, accessories, vest, scarfs or even boot rugs. We offer all different lengths of necklaces so the ladies can mix and match styles and colors. Belts, buckles and vests also add dimension and variety to any outfit,” added Christian. As 2013 unfolds, we should see some increased competition in the Western Apparel market as Manufacturers and retailers battle for the discriminating buyer. Whether just adding the western look to their existing wardrobe or those actually living the western lifestyle, the battle is on to provide contemporary western customers with trendy, cutting-edge clothing and accessories.

UPCOMING

North Alabama Championships Rainsville, Alabama June 14-16, 2013 “Sit down, Joseph,” Susan McCurdy said sternly. “You have to pay attention or you will miss the lesson altogether.” She smiled and ruffled the boy’s milky colored hair and handed him back his pencil. He smiled shyly and made a secret promise to listen more carefully. The year was 1912 and Susan McCurdy felt more than a wee bit of pressure in the job at hand. She was the first teacher of the second school in Rainsville, Alabama and she wanted it to go well. Her husband, Edward Elijah McCurdy, was a prominent merchant in the growing community. There were a lot of things riding on the success of the education system in the area. Settlement of the region began in earnest when the Cherokee started vacating the area in 1837. Many settlers came from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia. Pouring into the valleys between Sand Mountain and Lookout Mountain, settlers favored the lower grounds. The steep slopes and cliffs of the mountains were obviously a strong geographical barrier. By the 1860s several of the valley towns of northeast Alabama - Gadsden, Bellefonte (just north of present-day Scottsboro), Guntersville, Centre and Lebanon - appeared on pre-Civil War maps. At that time the area that is now downtown Rainsville remained a mere rough frontier crossing deep in the woods. Susan McCurdy was well versed in the history of the area and she wanted every student to know his or her history. Their roots were important and each of the 34 / JUNE 2013

children could make a difference in the growing community. Education was important and she wanted to instill that in every single one of her students. Some of the earliest known settlers came to the lands that are now downtown Rainsville between 1885 and 1895. Some of Susan’s students were children whose families had originally settled the area. It was, indeed, something to be proud of. It was something very unique to watch a town grow. Today, Rainsville is a small town located in the Northeast corner of Alabama with a population of 4,499 as of the 2000 census. It is centrally located in an area of rapid growth. In a radius of 75 miles, there is a population of approximately one million people. It is Rainsville, Alabama that will welcome the North Alabama Championships the weekend of June 15th and 16th. The Agri-Business Center will welcome USTRC Team Ropers and it is an awesome facility. It is perfectly user friendly for USTRC team roping. When census information showed a steady growth in Rainsville the community looked at their town and the surrounding areas and realized there was a need for additional entertainment, especially for the young people. Because of this need, the vision for a state-of-the art Agri-Business Center started. This is also why the board added so many things to this one project. Their goal was to be diversified to the point that the facility would serve everyone in the area. It is obvious from their plans that they met their goal. The Agri-Business Center is a state of the art facility, which serves the City of Rainsville, Dekalb County, the seven surrounding counties, and the tri-state area of Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. The site consists of a forty-three acre tract, which is adjacent to a city owned recreational complex. Access to the Agri-Business Center is directly off Highway 75, which is the major North-South highway in the area. It is this facility that will serve and host the North Alabama Championships. While in the area ropers should take some time and explore and see all this part of Alabama has to offer visitors. The mountains of northeast Alabama are full of many delightful surprises that entertain the mind,

body and senses. Enjoy nature hikes through state and national parks and preserves, view scenic waterfalls and majestic overlooks, ride your bike through forested paths that lead to hidden waterfalls and pristine brooks and fly fish from the Little River. Perhaps if you are feeling a little more adventurous and do not have enough riding and roping you can rappel from sheer rock cliffs, kayak the raging Little River and go underground to the “Looking Glass Lakes” at Sequoyah Caverns. No matter what your preference - a quiet get-a-way or an adrenaline rush—it is available in the beautiful Northeast Alabama Mountains! Ropers should plan to see it all...Just for the fun of it! Ropers can also make the opportunity to commune with nature in DeSoto State Park. There are overnight accommodations such as rustic cabins, modern chalets, campgrounds and motel rooms. Some units are handicap accessible. Hiking and Biking trails, swimming pool, tennis courts, playground and picnic area are just part of what awaits ropers at the park. Voted as one of America’s top 10 state parks by Camping Life Magazine in their April 2006 issue the park offers majestic scenery, waterfalls and canyons. You can also walk the 1,000-ft. Azalea Cascades Boardwalk Trail. Mrs. McCurdy had a sixth sense about Rainsville, Alabama. From 1912 until the early 1950s, Mrs. McCurdy taught thousands of students at various schools in the area. The portion of Highway 75 in the Rainsville city limits is named McCurdy Avenue in honor of “Uncle Ed” and “Aunt Susie.” USTRC Team Ropers are in for a great weekend filled with fun, roping, history and fellowship when the North Alabama Championships rolls around. Be sure and mark your calendars. This is one event you will not want to miss. Be there! (** The events about Mrs. McCurdy are fictional fabrication based on a real person and character.)

Seven events across the United States, lots of cash and prizes available, along with tons of USTRC Flex Earnings for Regional and National Shoot-Out positions. Mark your calendars, because you don’t want to miss this year’s USTRC Regional Finals season! With Regional’s scheduled from coast to coast and everywhere in between, the USTRC has made it possible for every team roper to enjoy these events and have a shot at big payouts and great prizes. In addition, every member is given enough flex earnings when purchasing their USTRC membership, to allow them to compete in at least one Regional Shoot-Out division. Add to that many other opportunities to increase your flex earning from other events and the possibilities are endless. The Regional Finals Events have always set the stage for ropers to compete for huge cash payouts. Last year’s winners took home over $2,024,624 in cash alone throughout the seven events. Ropers can count on each of these events to be equipped with some awesome prize lines, great cattle, and of course first class production only the USTRC can offer. Don’t forget, the Regional Final Events set the stage for ropers to gain momentum for the ultimate team roping of the

off the propane to my branding iron heater, which was just a short piece of oilfield casing on four legs. ReRide was telling another big windy to everyone and decided to get comfortable by absent-mindedly sitting down on the branding iron heater, as if it were his favorite bar stool. Now, a physicist could probably tell you how long it takes for an almost red-hot piece of pipe to cool to room temperature, but I’m no physicist and, obviously, neither is ReRide. We all stood with our mouths agape as a strong smell of burning flesh, with just a whiff of Wranglers, wafted into our IN HOUSE PROOF CRX’D work space. Due to ReRide’s calloused backside from riding horses all his life, there was a brief disconnect, but when ReRide’s nerve synapses delivered the delayed message he launched from the branding iron heater like a rocket. Two of the better

ome people are just an accident waiting to happen. Take my friend ReRide for example. Getting hurt is ReRide’s “achilles heel”, which is about the only part of his body he hasn’t broken, strained, cut, burned or shattered. Not that I go around checking out other male’s anatomies or anything, but a mere glimpse of ReRide’s carcass is enough to make any woman become a nun. Years ago we were working our calves and since we had all day to process 100 head, about midmorning we decided to take a well-deserved break. This gave me a little time to nail up a few more boards in the corral, restock the refreshments inVSA the cooler, refill syringes, put my ancient squeeze chute back together and take stock of how much damage my neighbors had done to my cattle empire’s infrastructure. We all grabbed a donut and a soft drink, and to save energy I turned

ropers had to head and heel him so we could tie him on the flat bed to haul to the hospital. We stood him up because it was obvious he couldn’t sit down, and besides, we figured the air circulation from driving real fast might cool his tailpipe, so to speak. Needless to say, ReRide was walking a little funny as we entered the emergency ward where I helped him fill out reams of forms and answer all the embarrassing questions. With a soft touch, I removed ReRide’s smoking wallet to get his driver’s license to hand to the lady at the ER desk. Then she asked ReRide the same question they ask all patients even if they only have a bleeding hang nail: “Do you have a power of attorney or a living will?” “Is it that serious?” asked ReRide, still refusing to take a seat. After a most uncomfortable hour-long wait ReRide finally got to see someone in a white coat. I think her name was Dr. Euthanasia and she told ReRide to do what all doctors do the very first thing, even if it’s head injury. “Drop your drawers partner,” she ordered. Let me just say it was not what you’d call a clean brand. No, it looked more like a badly blotched lazy D. The Doctor did a cursory exam and wrote out two prescriptions, one for an ointment and one for some pain pills. “Time is the best healer,” the Doc said. And a lot cheaper too, as ReRide discovered when the hospital bill came. We took ReRide home and put him in bed, bottoms up, of course, and went back to work. ReRide’s injury made it difficult to ride a horse or even to perform bodily functions, for that matter, but he survived. Although, he still walks a little funny and refuses to sit down. About a year later I was helping ReRide reroof his barn with a compressor and an air gun when somehow he manage to staple his Wranglers to his left thigh. Ouch! So once again I loaded ReRide up and took him to the ER. Wouldn’t you know it, Dr Euthanasia was still on duty. Since ReRide couldn’t drop his drawers all the way, Dr. Euthanasia took a pair of scissors and, starting at the top, proceeded to cut a perfectly good pair of Wranglers off him. The second the doctor exposed ReRide’s branded bum a light came on in her eyes and she exclaimed, “Oh, I remember you!” wwwLeePittsbooks.com

pril 1, 2025 Headline: Wine and Cheese Banned from American Diets The presidentially appointed Director of Taste has declared the selling and/or dispensing of all fermented beverages derived from the fruit of the vine is to be prohibited in the United States. In addition, certain varieties of cheese whose aroma has been defined as “too stinky” by the Sniff Committee, are also banned from manufacture or importation in the U.S. These new regulations are part of a continuing effort by ‘those who know best’ operating through the Department of Whimsy. They base their regulations on the premise that you can always find someone who is offended by someone else’s behavior or taste. It started innocently enough with the separating of cigarette smokers to the back of airplanes. The requirement of content labels on baked and canned goods followed. Then no smoking in airports, no sugar in soda pop. Then no soda pop in schools, then no soda pop in cities! Then the banning of baked goods, desserts, and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream in schools, then cities, then the nation. Twinkies, rich pastries and CinnaBuns were banned because they were declared to be harmful to some. Fish caught in the wild were banned because of possible mercury content and farm-raised fish were banned due to possible salmon abuse. The battle goes on. The Animal Rights Loonies have been trying for years to ban the eating of horsemeat. They also are seeking the Department of Sensitivity to prevent the use of horses for fun or profit. The ownership of house pets are next on their agenda.

ell if you haven’t noticed by now the 2013 roping season is in full gear. If you don’t believe me then just glance through the pages at the back of this fine publication and you will remove any doubt you may have

had. Not only is there a roping every weekend, there are literally a passel of roping opportunities every weekend from which to choose from. Compound the equation with the reality that not all the ropings that will take

place are listed here and it is literally mind boggling at the number of places one could go trying to “scratch” that proverbial team roping “itch”. Just for kicks I looked back at some of the early editions of The Superlooper and I was blown away by how much our sport has changed in regards to when, where and how often we can actually go rope. On the superficial side of things one might think that there is a team roping on every corner and that a horse trailer would be a waste of money seeing how you could just saddle up and ride down the street to the next one. Like I said that is the superficial view of things but as all of us know that is really no where close to the reality of our sport. Just for fun pull out that globe of yours and place a dot over where you call home and then place a dot at each of the ropings listed in this month’s edition. For a moment you will be amazed at how many dots there actually are but that amazement will soon be dwarfed by the sheer magnitude of the distance one could travel in order to get from one dot to another. Now I know that is a little drastic seeing how this month I can actually drive across town to the West Texas Championships or I can load up and get myself to The Rope for the Lobsters of Tuckernuck in Nantucket, MA. This month the decision should be a no brainer but this month is a yearly anomaly as well. As my wife will attest we live right smack dab in the middle of some of the best roping in the country… 500 miles in any either direction!!! Now I also know that my chances of drawing a check here at home pale in comparison to my chances of actually placing in the 1 X 1 round robin format there on the Isle of Muskeget which is home to The Lobster Open, the premiere roping event in the greater upper Massachusetts area so the decision is not as simple as it might appear. Anyway I must digress and actually get back to the real meaning of this month’s attempt at journalistic excellence. We are a mobile society and team roping is a mobile sport. Although for some of you there are multiple opportunities for you to rope at several different venues over a weekend and never leave your zip code for many of us going to rope means having to cross multiple area codes just to find a practice pen. The sport has become somewhat of a transient driven sport and although it may seem overwhelming to some on the outside it is merely a part of the sport to most of us who actually try and live and play inside the sport. It’s the principle I refer to as “Gone Roping” as opposed to just “Roping”. It is that “gone” element that is really at the crux of what I am trying to communicate. Several month’s ago I made a commitment to myself that I was going to make team roping a priority in my life again. Not like quit my job and neglect my family


124-25 Sports Med_Layout 1 5/7/13 2:42 PM Page 125

and friends but more so I feel like I am a better person when I am doing things that I enjoy, and I do enjoy roping. Several months ago I also got a dose of reality when I suffered my second heart attack before even having my fifty-third birthday. Although the first one came as somewhat of a surprise to say the least the second one came as a complete surprise as it packed a punch of reality along with it as well. The first one changed the way I lived my life… The second one changed my life. By changed the way I lived I mean I basically changed what I ate and how much I exercised after the first one. By changed my life I mean it literally affects every decision that my family and I make and everything that we do. It was actually at 4:00 a.m. as I was loading up to head out to Llano, TX a mere 125 miles from home for my first roping in almost ten years. I was trying my best to rummage around in the dark and not awaken my sleeping wife so as to leave with as little fanfare as possible. I leaned over to give her a little kiss goodbye and I surprisingly found she was not sound asleep, rather she was sitting at the kitchen table patiently waiting on me to try and make my undetected escape. Kinda like when I was a teenager and I would find my mother at the kitchen table at 4:00space am waiting on me to try and make my undetected entrance, but none the less there she sat, all alone in the dark stillness of the early morning with those same caring and loving eyes that my mother used to show me. A myriad of thoughts came to my mind as to what was going on at this ridiculous hour of the night/morning but as I lifted my cup of hot steaming coffee she had prepared me I found the answer sitting underneath. This was going to be the first time that she and I were going to actually be apart since that second episode forever changed our lives. She and the girls have been there every step of the way and although I have hoped that they would be oblivious to the whole situation I realized at that moment that it has changed their there lives forever as well. I also realized that there was in fact a reason that at least one of them had been there with me every step of the way. It explained why someone would just appear at the barn every once in a while just to see what’s up. Why the “Man Cave” suddenly smelled sweeter and was always better organized and why my cell phone activity seemed to have multiplied immensely. You see they have found some comfort in knowing that if something else were to happen to me along the way that at least someone would be there with me who would not only know who I was but more importantly know what I needed. Although it really goes much deeper than that the simplicity of the message for this month’s installment is best summed up in the little note that sat there on the table. It started like this… My name is Mark W. Duncan and if you are reading this then there are some things you really need to know… The information that followed was not

something that would be of interest to you and I hope that if our paths do happen to cross at a roping somewhere sometime that you have no need to become privy to it. It was though a very concise and detailed accumulation of pertinent information that fits in my wallet that will be of great benefit if in fact something does happen to me while I am away from them. Some folks might call it a medical history and information form and in all reality that is exactly what it was, I just never saw one so well written. The message is really very simple. If you have the need to travel then you need to make sure that people who may not know you know what you may need. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that can make the biggest differences especially when it comes to emergencies. Please take the time to do this for yourself and your loved ones. In a world where we really can have information overload at our fingertips it would be ashamed to forego something so very simple as a little card on your person. So back to my little love note as I like to call it. It ended like this… Thank you for what you have done for my husband and the father of my daughters. Know that he is loved!!! You may reach me at the following numbers: Sincerely, Pammy See you next month. Good luck… Good Health… Good Roping… Good Riddance… & God Bless!!!

here is your horse?” Boss asked June Bug. “I thought you were going to ride him around while we were roping.” With a sheepish look she hemmed hawed around and told her dad she had tied him to the trailer. “Did Mom help you? “ he asked. “We don’t want him getting loose.” She assured her dad she had secured her horse and all was good. Boss took her word for it and proceeded to make his way around for another team roping run. It’s hard to really determine time frame when you are at a team roping.

drag on for hours. Regardless, when I made a run to the trailer to refresh my stockpile of snacks I noticed there were no horses tied at the trailer. I knew Buzzy was roping and June Bug had been playing with some friends near where I was sitting in the stands. “Mmmm, wonder where her horse is?” I wondered. I hurried back to the stands because Boss was going to rope shortly and naturally I needed to do some filming. When Boss and his partner took the lead in the short go round I was ecstatic and in the excitement that ensued I forgot about the horse. It wasn’t until later when June came for some pocket change that I remembered about her horse. When I asked her horse she told me she had tied him to the trailer. Mmmm, not good! What transpired next comes together like a fog in my mind. Suddenly we had a horse missing. Had he merely wandered off? Had someone borrowed him? Heaven forbid, had he been stolen? Had he merely gotten loose and stopped to visit with someone else’s horse? A missing horse is never a good thing. It causes a sinking pit in the bottom of your stomach mostly because, in some ways, they are like family and kids, dogs, or horses out of pocket is never a good thing. I waited until Boss had a break in the roping then preceded to let him know about June’s horse. He stared at me with that look that says, “Why weren’t you paying attention?” Suddenly, it appeared to be my fault. Boss hollered at Donald and told him June’s horse was missing and to keep his eyes opened. I went to find June. Boss headed to the trailer to look around the area where we had parked. Donald and Buzzy went to the stalls to make sure, on some whim that June Bug might have gotten confused and put him in the stall. When we all connected a short time later we were batting zero. June realizing there was now a problem

began to panic. Bawling and carrying on she proceeded to have a fit that otherwise would not have been an issue if the adults involved were not beginning to approach panic mode. “I don’t want my horse to die,” she screamed then added, “I don’t want him to live with a bad man.” Calming her Boss picked her up and set her in his saddle all the while assuring her things would be okay. We all split up again and began to search the perimeters of the roping facility to make sure he had not wandered off in search of greener grass. A couple of other ropers began going from stall to stall to make sure someone had not found a loose horse and just penned him where he was. The kicker was the horse had a kid’s saddle on him and that, in and of itself, was an issue. Everyone, everywhere is always on the lookout for a horse a “little kid” can ride. That fact made me feel a bit nauseous. Suddenly, my cell phone rang. It was Donald’s number. When I answered Buzzy said, “Hey mom, we found Digger. Donald has him and is bringing him to the trailer. Can you tell Dad?” Suddenly pent up emotions flooded and I burst into tears. My hands shook as I dialed Boss. When he answered I could still hear June fussing and stewing over her horse. There was nothing but silence when I told Boss what Buzzy had said. I’m sure his emotions mirrored mine but he just couldn’t or wouldn’t cry. It was like a family reunion at the trailer. Digger and June hugged and she promised to never leave him again. It seemed the horse had wandered near the stripping chutes so one of the boys there had just corralled him. Fortunately, he wasn’t on the highway and perhaps even more importantly he had not been stolen. The sad thing is there are horses stolen at ropings, rodeos and equine shows all across the country. Horses much more valuable than June’s Digger. Some are found, some never are and some—well it scares me to say it. The important thing is there is a tight network of ropers and a community of fellowship that pulls together and works together to increase the chance of recovering horses. We’ve all experienced the empty helpless feeling when a horse goes missing. We have all shed the tears and felt the jubilance of a recovered and found horse. I don’t know why anyone would stoop to the level it takes to steal a horse. I don’t

Hello

W

hat’s the most valuable thing that any of us possess? It’s not family, possessions or money. It’s time! What dying man or women wouldn’t give all their money for five more years of time? I would! I love it here. Every day is like a new adventure, so when I waste time, it’s like I’m wasting my life. As I’ve gotten older I have come to realize that I have wasted a lot of time arguing with people, and it’s upsetting to me. I’m not a confrontational person. Some people are. They can have a problem with someone and go right on the next day like nothing ever happened. I’m not that way. If I have a problem with someone I think about it, worry about it, and get disappointed in myself that I let it get to that point. So because of that, I’m done arguing. I have had people come to a roping school, not a lot but some, and they’re interested in heeling to which I know something about. The person would throw as soon as the steer turns. They are on the wrong side of the steer, completely out of time, their tip is too high, and they miss. I ride up and point out all of those things, and the person in some cases will argue. I’m not doing that anymore. I’m going to tell you what I do and why I do it. You tell me what you do, and the way that makes the most sense and produces the best results is the direction I’m going. No one knows what’s exactly right and exactly wrong. We’re going to have to die and ask God. So before that happens we’re going to have to use common sense and good judgement, the old trial-and-error method. That’s why, in most cases, it takes until you get older to become successful because you

have to fail a lot to learn. It’s like when Thomas Edison was trying to invent the incandescent lightbulb. After years of failures, a reporter said that he had to be very frustrated. He said on the contrary, I’m very excited, I now know 600 ways that won’t work and I’m that much closer to my goal. I can relate to that kind of thinking. I have tried a million things that haven’t worked, but I have a few that do. We all do. When you try to share that information with someone and they don’t want to hear it, let alone use it, what can a person do? I’m convinced that anyone can change, but they have to want to. It has to be their idea. I heard a story one time that the speaker told about himself. To his own admission, he was a slug. He was out of a job, had lost his family, and was completely broke. He was still in his bathrobe at noon on a weekday, when he got a knock on the door. He said it was a Girl Scout, all dressed up in her uniform selling Girl Scout cookies. She said, “Excuse me sir, but would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?” He told her, “I already bought some last week”. The little girl replied, “thank you for supporting the Girl Scouts of America” and walked away. As he closed the door, he said to himself “That’s it. When a person has to lie to a Girl Scout because they don’t have enough money to buy a cookie, that’s the bottom.” He decided to turn his life around and he did. Zig Ziglar said one time that he had made an amazing discovery in his life. You know what it was? People are different! He said that if you ask one hundred people to raise three fingers, 90 of them would hold up the middle three fingers. Nine of them would hold up the

last three fingers, and there would be one odd duck that would hold up his thumb, index and middle finger. I have spent a lot of time and energy arguing with ducks because they didn’t hold up the same three fingers as I do. I assume that because I hold up the middle three, that I’m right and the rest of the world is wrong. For some reason, it was important that I tell them about it. Show them the woes of their ways. When I would see someone driving in the fast lane on the freeway and they were going slow and holding up traffic, I even motioned that they should move over. I had become like a traffic cop, if you will. When Barbara Bush was First Lady, a reporter asked her one time if she had seen a new board game that was out on the market. The name of it was Kill the President. The reporter asked what she thought about it. She calmly replied that she would never let her grandchildren play a game like that and she hoped he wouldn’t either, but that was up to him. What a classy thing to say. Zig Ziglar was right when he said that people are different and all people are entitled to their opinions and actions. If you want to go to the store and buy that game, or drive slow in the fast lane and hold up traffic, go ahead. I’m not, but I’m no longer going to try to convince you that I’m right and you’re wrong. Unless you ask me, I’m keeping my opinion to myself. I only have a certain amount of time left, and none of us know how much time that is. I’m not spending one more second arguing. Until next month, Thanks for your time
