s I close out the last issue of the year, the National Finals Rodeo has just concluded. I spent a few days in Las Vegas during this year’s NFR and…well…there really is no way to describe it in words. The overall magnitude of the event and all that surrounds it is simply mind-blowing. It has, in fact, taken on an identity of its own. It’s the NFR! The NFR is a marketer’s dream child. It literally takes over all of Las Vegas (no small task), everyone feels its presence. Locals who know nothing about rodeo at all, refer to it by name, visitors (even foreign ones) figure it out in about 30 minutes as well. The presence of it literally transforms the place. And the people? They pour in around the clock, pockets full of cash and plastic mesmerized by the opportunity to say they were a part of it. It struck me as I was wandering through one of the five “Cowboy Christmas” trade shows scattered up and down the Las Vegas strip that the NFR outshines its own creator…that is, the brand, “NFR,” carries far more significance than the brand, “PRCA,” from which it was born. Having talked to a number of random people in town for the event, I would say that about half of them couldn’t even tell you the connection between the two… odd, don’t you think? The reason this is important… and something the PRCA should be a little jittery about… is that it seems the tail is now wagging the dog. Now don’t misunderstand, I’m not denigrating the NFR in any way, nor am I saying that the
popularity of the event is in any way a bad thing. Television contracts and the exposure the city of Las Vegas brings to the event, adds up to dollars. And there is no debating the fact that as a result of the boatloads of cash generated, at least some of it is reflected in the generous, record-setting payout to those who qualify to compete at the event. I do, however, have a concern. It seems year after year, the NFR keeps getting bigger and bigger, but while its popularity continues to grow, the same can’t be said for the PRCA itself. Membership is down, the number of PRCA rodeos has fallen significantly, and the ones that remain, struggle to fill performances with contestants. I mean, it’s great that the PRCA has the NFR to pull it along during some tough economic times, but I hope the PRCA isn’t content with the situation… accepting this as the “new normal.” I’m not sure what the long-term model is for the PRCA, or if they even have one. If they don’t, it would not come as a surprise… I mean, with the NFR making it “all good” at the end of each season, I can see how some complacency could set in. I can see how ignoring what is going on would be an easy thing to do, and maybe the thinking is that they will stay focused on what is working… the NFR… and let the rest take care of itself. I hope this is not the case. In fact, I think the prudent thing to do would be to work on the grassroots side of the association while the going is good at the top end. This may well be the case. The PRCA may be doing more than I think in this regard... but if it is, I don’t see it. Look, I’m just saying that it would be a really bad thing to waste this opportunity to do some continued on page 31

right lights, money and lots of great rodeo action as the 2012 PRCA National Finals Rodeo once again captivated thousands of rodeo fans throughout ten nights. From a spectacular, cowboy beginning to the last twist of the final bull rider, the event captured the heart and soul of rodeo. The NFR wrapped up the 2012 PRCA season, crowning another set of the best rodeo cowboys and cowgirls in the world. Trevor Brazile once again made history as he took home his tenth All-Around gold buckle. Picking up the title midway through the rodeo in the fifth round, the action continued and the world championship races heated up. In the end, the 2012 NFR offered up firsttime world champions, past champions who claimed another title and back-toback world championships. Every competitor proved they had what it takes to be among rodeo’s elite competitors and the 2012 NFR marked a big chapter in the history of rodeo. The most dramatic part of the event is the final night, round ten where all the chips are down and World Champions crowned. Stealing the show this year, all eyes were on the team roping where perhaps the most dramatic of all tales proved the event truly does offer lots of excitement. The possibility of a header from one team winning the world championship

with a heeler from another partnership became more and more real as the NFR wore on. But, in a final-round stunner, heeler Jade Corkill came from behind to capture his first gold buckle along with Chad Masters, who won a world championship for the second time. If the NFR had ended after nine rounds, a split championship would have occurred between Masters and Patrick Smith. However, Driggers and Corkill put together a 4.0-second run that put the pressure on Masters and Clay O’Brien Cooper and Trevor Brazile and Smith. Masters and Cooper roped their final-

round steer in 5.2 seconds, good enough to place fifth in the round, and Driggers and Corkill’s round-winning run held up when Brazile and Smith posted a time of 10.0 seconds. The result? Masters, thanks to a firstplace result in the average, finished with $196,099, topping Driggers by $1,211. And Corkill put $34,159 in his pocket on the final night of the NFR to finish with $190,797, topping Cooper by $1,131. While the team roping was tight, no race was closer than the saddle bronc riding. Cody DeMoss was the only cowboy to ride all 10 horses. He won the 10th round with an 86-point trip aboard Smith, Harper & Morgan Rodeo’s Painted Feather, winning the average with 798.5 points on 10. But Milford, Utah, cowboy Jesse Wright tied for fourth in the round and finished sixth in average, hanging on to win his first gold buckle by just $796.93. Three of ProRodeo’s world champions from 2011 pulled off a repeat just one year later as steer wrestler Luke Branquinho won his fourth gold buckle and bareback rider Kaycee Feild and tie-down Tuf Cooper each backed up their first. Branquinho had a steer fall on him in the week leading up to the NFR, then couldn’t get down from his horse, taking a no-time in the very first round. None of it mattered in the end as the Los Alamos, California, cowboy cashed in seven of the
54th annual Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Thomas & Mack Center Las Vegas, NV

final nine rounds, including a Round 4 victory, to win the world by $13,898 over Casey Martin. Branquinho became the first bulldogger to successfully defend his world championship since Ote Berry in 1990-91 and joined Berry and Jim Bynum in second place all-time with four steer wrestling world titles. His hazer and friend Les Shepperson won the average with a total of 48.6 seconds on 10 head, rising from 11th to third over the course of 10 days. No cowboy in any event was more dominant in Las Vegas than Feild. The Payson, Utah, bareback rider placed in eight of 10 rounds, won at least a share of a first-place check in three and finished with $276,850 in season earnings, topping Will Lowe by more than $56,000. Bobby Mote, who finished third in the average and the world standings this year, was the last bareback rider to win backto-back world championships in 2009-10. Feild’s father, Lewis, also accomplished the feat in 1985-86. Cooper joined his father in the club of cowboys who have successfully defended world titles, as well. Roy Cooper won six gold buckles in tie-down roping, including those back to back wins in from 1980-1984. After Justin Maass posted a 13.2second run, Cooper knew a workmanlike run would help him capture another title, and his 7.9-second effort took second in the round and moved him to second in the average.

National Trail Champion Offers Tips, Expertise at NM Clinic Mark Bolender Challenges Riders and Horses to Mental, Physical Tests on Extreme Trail Does your horse cross water willingly? Can he make it over a suspension bridge? How about a teeter-totter? After three days with three-time National Mountain Trail Grand Champion Mark Bolender, he’ll conquer these challenges of Extreme Trail and more. For the second year in a row, Bolender will be leading a small group of riders and horses over the master trail course of La Estancia Alegre, home to champion Peruvian horses in Alcalde, NM (about halfway between Taos and Santa Fe). The course includes bridges, winding water obstacles, switch-backs, rock scrambles, terraces and more. Bolender is accepting 10 riders for each of two clinics. The first runs May 13-15, 2013; the second is May 17-19, 2013. Costs are $450 with a horse (you may borrow one from La Estancia Alegre) or $150 for auditing all three days with lunch. Auditing without lunch is $75 for three days or $25 per day. Over the course of the three-day clinic, Bolender will teach riders and auditors how to first establish leadership with their horses, then encourage those horses to think their way through the challenges of the course rather than reacting with
instinct. Riders start building confidence and skills on the ground, then mount up to master the obstacles from the saddle. “Most horses operate on instinct,” Bolender said. “Instinct will determine whether you as a handler or rider are worthy of a leadership role. Then they’ll use their intelligence to figure out what you want.” The subtle difference between instinct and intelligence directly affects a rider’s success over obstacles, Bolender said. “If you come up to a scary object, instead of trying to cross the scary object, the horse will come into you (for direction)” he said. Clinics last year filled up in less than a week. To reserve your spot, visit http://www.LaEstanciaAlegre.com.

Mark’s training method is that, “Good horsemanship is not about domination but leadership, and having the horse volunteer for a partnership with the handler.”
About La Estancia Alegre: La Estancia Alegre has been breeding, training and showing Peruvian horses since 1995 on the banks of the Rio Grande in Northern New Mexico. The breeding program produces horses that are strong, willing and well-gaited. They’re pieces of living history whose bloodlines trace back to the original horses brought to the New World by Spanish conquistadors.
About Peruvian horses: Peruvian horses, also known as Peruvian pasos, are known for their smooth, four-beat, ground-covering gait, their beauty and their gentle dispositions. A hallmark of the Peruvian horse is its brio, its energetic willingness. For 500 years, they were bred in isolation in Peru as elegant transportation across the rugged and varied terrain of South America. Since they were first exported to the United States in the late 1960s, the breed has become popular with riders who enjoy the bounce-free gait, particularly with people who suffer from chronic injuries that can be aggravated by jarring diagonal gaits. Now they’re becoming increasingly popular trail mounts. That gentle glide and disposition make for excellent transportation over all kinds of terrain and trail competitions.

Jackpot Roping Goes Big!
he Old Town Feed & Supplies and Bishop’s Trailer Sales 6th annual Trailer and Saddle Roping was another great success. The Bishop and Ferris families have been working hard to make this Southern Arizona roping a fun event for their customers, friends, and ropers from all over. Ropers came from Canada, Mexico, and many parts of the U.S. With over 1,960 teams and fresh cattle supplied by Miguel Martinez and Reed Flake, ropers will want to participate year after year. The Pima County Fairgrounds has proved to be a perfect venue for this event. With the two nearly identical indoor arenas set up back-to-back, and the super staff running the arenas, everything went smoothly. The weather was beautiful and made it nice for all the spectators that came to the event. Thank you to the Pima County Fairgrounds and Sunset Cantina for the live band and Friday Night Steak Fry. The 4-H Food Booth and other venders offered good food and fun shopping opportunities. Thank you to Diane Graham and her staff for coming out to take pictures.

e had a very busy month and many ropers who attended our events had a very good November. We hosted a World Series Qualifier in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a Saddle and Trailer Roping in Casa Grande, Arizona and a USTRC Qualifier back in Albuquerque. The weather took its toll on the turnout at the World Series in Albuquerque. Temperatures were in the 30’s for the high both days. Despite the bad weather, we still had several brave ropers participate in the event. Payouts as usual were exceptional at this event! The Saddle and Trailer roping in Casa Grande was a huge success. The trailer will be making it’s way to Calgary, Alberta, Canada after the winter season. Makayla Boisjoli who is only 15 years old placed second and third to claim the big prize. Local young gun Jacob Auza won the saddle after placing second and fourth. Thanks to Steve Sherwood for supplying a nice set of steers for the event. The USTRC Duke City Classic saw numerous ropers come out during the Thanksgiving weekend. The event experienced a 16% increase over last year. Great steers made for an enjoyable roping experience for all who attended. At the three events combined we paid out nearly $175,000 in cash and prizes. We hope everyone had good luck at the World Series Finale in Las Vegas. Don’t forget the great weekend of roping we have planned for you ropers in Clovis, New Mexico over New Year’s weekend. Most important we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Zamora Roping Productions Kenny Zamora

Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson
odeo as we know it took a while to evolve. Wild West Shows, Frontier Days celebrations, stampedes and roundup celebrations of various forms all had a hand in its formation. It is written there were as many as 100 different events, contests or displays the various producers chose from when organizing a show. One such event was simply known as “bulldogging.” It was the precursor to what we know today as steer wrestling and is the only event in rodeo which can be traced back to one man who is credited with its origination. That man is Bill Pickett. Pickett was born December 5, 1870 in Travis County, Texas, north of modernday Austin. His parents were former slaves. He was a black man, who also was said to have Cherokee Indian and Anglo in his blood. “His antecedents were of mixed Negro, Caucasian and Cherokee Indian blood,” according to Colonel Bailey C. Hanes. “A not uncommon blend [in the 1800’s] in the upper south.” Hanes wrote in his book, Bill Pickett, Bulldogger (University of
Oklahoma Press, 1977). As a kid, Bill worked on local ranches, where he observed ranch dogs (often referred to as “bull dogs”) bring wild cattle under submission by biting them on the nose and upper lip. He must have thought, “If it works for those dogs, why wouldn’t it work for me?” Bill started practicing his “bulldogging” technique. Nobody knows for sure if he first started doing this on the range or in a corral. What we do know is that he figured out how to spur his horse alongside a bovine and jump onto it, grabbing a hold of its horns. He then maneuvered around so he could get a bite on the nose or upper lip, just like he’d witnessed those good dogs doing. Then he threw his weight to the ground, bringing the
animal with him. It had no choice but to submit. Before long, word got around about Bill’s stunt and he started doing exhibitions. Although he only had a fifth-grade education, he and his brothers were some of the earliest black entrepreneurs in Texas during the late 1800s. They formed a group called, “Pickett Bros. Bronco Busters and Rough Riders Association” near Taylor. As word
spread, Bill was requested more and more for exhibitions further away from home. He did shows all across the West. By 1904, his technique and act had been honed to perfection and he made an appearance at the prestigious Cheyenne Frontier Days. There he caught the attention of the Miller Brothers whose 101 Ranch Wild West Show was known worldwide. They hired Pickett in 1905 for his popular act and brought him and his family from Texas to Oklahoma, housing them at the 101 Ranch headquarters. He was billed as “The Dusky Demon,” and known at the time as “the only professional bulldogger in the world.” He worked alongside the likes of Buffalo Bill, Will Rogers and Tom Mix and performed with the Wild West Show in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South America, and England. Colonel Zack Miller of the 101 Ranch described Pickett as “…the greatest sweat-and-dirt cowhand that ever lived, bar none.” He was such a popular performer that he was also requested to appear in some early motion pictures. He was in the films The Bull Dogger and The Crimson Skull and has been credited as the first black cowboy movie star. Bill worked for the Wild West Show (and Millers 101 Ranch) the rest of his life. He did everything for them from working cattle to picking cotton to training horses and, of course, performing in their shows. Along the way he taught bulldogging to many cowboys. The biting aspect of it eventually was dropped, but “steer wrestling” evolved and has since became one of the six standard events of rodeo to have survived
out of the 100-plus various events tried throughout the years. In 1890 Pickett married Maggie Turner and the couple had nine children. Over the years Bill sometimes entered rodeos as a Native American just because blacks were often not allowed to compete due to prejudices of the day. There has been speculation that Bill would have several “World Championships” in the bulldogging event to his credit had he been allowed to compete like his white contemporaries. Of course, by the time World Championships were even counted, Bill would have been in his late fifties so who knows. One thing is probable however, without Bill Pickett, there would not be a steer wrestling contest. In 1932, Bill Pickett was kicked in the head by a horse while working at the 101 Ranch and died of his injuries eleven days later on April 4, at the age of sixty-one. His friend Will Rogers announced the funeral on his radio show, commenting, “Bill Pickett never had an enemy, even the steers wouldn’t
hurt old Bill.” Pickett is buried near a fourteen-foot stone monument to Ponca Tribal Chief White Eagle, on Monument Hill, in Kay County, Oklahoma. Today there is a Bill Pickett Memorial rodeo series, held annually since 1984. They raise money for scholarships and according to the website, “The Bill Pickett Memorial Scholarship Fund (BPMSF) strongly supports education and benefits youth each year by providing scholarships to black high school and college students involved or interested in pursuing careers in rodeo or animal science.” In 1971 Bill Pickett became the first black honoree into the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum’s Rodeo Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. In 1989, he was also inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame at Colorado Springs, Colorado. © 2013 Jim Olson www.JimOlsonAuthor.com

ith six saddles, buckles, breast collars, jackets and sweatshirts, not to mention $5,000 to high point winners and a $1,000 Bounty Steer running through the herd, the recent event held in Albuquerque, New Mexico turned out good for ropers and for those who produced the event. The $1,000 Bounty Steer roping held at the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Posse Arena was filled with two days of great team roping fun and plenty of cash and prize payouts. Saturday, the first day of December, hosted the #11 Handicap roping. Ropers gathered up for their chance to win part of the great prizeline, as well as a handsome cash payout. The prizeline included a pair of trophy saddles awarded to the winning team. In the end Leon Nez and Jerimiah Jodie took the saddle home, but there were plenty more prizes to be awarded as well. Buckles, jackets, breast
collars and sweatshirts filled the prizeline through tenth place in the Average. Additionally, the high point roper of the roping earned a $5,000 paycheck and the high point Incentive roper (4 and under) won a trophy saddle. The high point saddle went home with Jon Satriana, and the big cash prize was claimed by Jerimiah Jodie. Sunday kicked off with the same format, but lowered the event to a #9 roping. Again, ropers filled the arena in their quest to win their share of the big prizeline and great cash awards. On Sunday, the team of Leonel Munoz and Jose Merino won the Average and claimed the pair of trophy saddles. Other teams claimed the rest of the Average payout and in the end it was Benjamin Rascon who claimed the #3 and below Incentive trophy saddles and Allen Charlie who won the $5,000 high point cash payout.

good for the future of the sport by allowing yourself to be convinced that because the NFR is so great, that everything else in the sport is great, too. I don’t want to see the PRCA wake up one day and realize there is no more product in the pipeline. The solution? There are a lot of them floating around, and have been for years. Most of them come from conventional thinking. They try to address the problem by adjusting the structure as it is. By now I think everyone has realized…or should have realized… that those kinds of solutions aren’t very successful. No, the real answers lay in taking a new view of the sport of rodeo and how it fits in with today’s culture and economics, and come up with a comprehensive strategy that will keep it viable for decades to come. Surprisingly, it’s a lot easier than the PRCA probably thinks and more importantly, it requires little financial commitment. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that the financial commitment from the PRCA would be less than the revenue it continues to lose each year as a result of the sport shrinking. Too often associations follow the path that the PRCA is on. They originate, they struggle to grow, they eventually become successful, they become top-heavy, and then… if their leadership is not insightful enough to understand how to stay successful…they crash. I hope this is not the end result for the PRCA, but I do know that it’s time for the association to reinvent itself at the grassroots level and help itself by helping those who raised it to the level of success that it now enjoys.

Dear NMRA Members, Robin Davis made a comment to me when I first took this job…. there seemed to be some question in his mind as to what the status of my energy level would be two years down the road. Well, its two years down the road and I am happy to say I am still dedicated to the goals that the NMRA board of directors has set and continue to set. I am scratched and beaten up a little and have had my face torn off several times but I still enjoy working with the board of directors. The NMRA staff and field secretaries are the best group of people I could ever hope to work with. I would like to thank each and every one of you for the great job you do for this association. So speaking of getting my face ripped off, that brings me to the guts of this letter….. YOUR NMRA ANNUAL MEETING IS JANUARY 12! Bring your concerns, proposed rule changes or your opinions with you and help your directors to act on your behalf. This is your chance to participate in the most important NMRA board meeting of the year. Abiquiu and Travis Law? You guys are the best. Thank you for what you did for the NMRA at our Finals and thank you for being part of solutions to problems in the rodeo picture in New Mexico rather than the alternative. For those of you looking for a facility to host your event I recommend you State Champion Heeler Saddle & Buckle – Diego Castillo Inc.

The NMRA is accepting Central Entry Secretary applications. Send letter of interest and Application to NMRA Office, PO Box 1101 Capitan, NM 88316
contact the Rio Arriba fairgrounds. It is a great facility and the people are wonderful to work with. Just to set the record straight…the USTRC moved their finals dates, we did not move ours. I want to apologize to the NMRA team ropers for what happened at the Finals and I hope you know we would never do anything purposely to cause that type of situation. It was an unfortunate chain of events and in an effort to be fair to all members of the NMRA we were forced to make that very difficult decision. It won’t happen again. I could go on and on about the economy and how it affects our sport and our association, but like you I am tired of hearing about it and am looking to better days ahead. They say fuel prices are coming down and the USA is on its way to energy independence…. that’s a step in the right direction in my book. Despite how you may feel about our current administration, now is the time that we need to come together as a country, support our leaders, share our voices and be part of solutions rather than problems. I hope you come to the winter convention, this is your association and you do have a voice and that is the proper place to make yourself heard. Thank you John Adams

E R C O A R EP R New Mexico – NBHA
January Newsletter Happy New Year to all New Mexico NBHA members! May this New Year bring blessings, happiness, health & many trips to the pay window! I want to extend a big thank you to all members that were able to attend the 2012 Finals. It was a great weekend, with fast times, great runs, and a lot of fun for everyone! I also want to thank Lonnie & Patty Wright at Rockin’ Horse Ranch for providing a super venue for our Finals, the generous help and support from your District Directors Kathy Price, Sharon George, Marion Ray & Sarah Vance, and
the behind the scenes assistance of Laurinda Bearce and our great office staff. Finally, I want to personally thank our sponsors: Advantage Paving, LeBow Welding & Fence, 505 Studio Rentals, Hitchin’ Post Feeds, Garcia Quarter Horses, Norman Enterprises Inc, Leon LeBow, and the Charley L Bell Estate. We couldn’t have done it without these giving sponsors! Our State Finals are slated for August 9th – 11th, at the Grants Rodeo Arena. It’s a very nice pen with good ground; the people of Grants always extend warm hospitality to us can chasers! There will be more added money for the Finals, and all the Districts will be having a Finals Benefit Race to help with the awards for the Finals. District # 01 had their benefit race in November with a large turnout and a nice check was sent by Kathy Price for the state award coffers. Scheduling for District 02, 06, & 07 will be posted on the NM NBHA website in the near future; stay tuned to keep these dates on your calendar! All donations from the state benefit races go to purchasing awards for the Finals. It’s our goal to provide saddles for Open, Youth & Senior divisions this year. The more participation by members at these races will allow us to give better prizes for all
divisions. District # 03(middle eastern NM), and District #04 (southeastern NM) are in need of a Director. Please contact me if anyone is interested. Don’t forget to thank your District Director for all their hard work putting on races for you! Their work to produce races largely goes unnoticed; it is a thankless job. Pitch in, offer them help instead of complaining that something isn’t right. Offer a solution to a problem. The Directors know the rules of NBHA and are committed to the fairness of those rules. It is their pure love of the sport, riding a great horse, the friendships that they have developed, and the desire to produce great races for all members, that keeps them going. And, remember it is the responsibility of each member to know the rules as well. Knowledge is a wonderful thing! As we head into the New Year, let’s all be responsible horse owners by making sure all vaccinations are current. Don’t forget to have your vet check your horse’s teeth! You’ll be amazed how many issues are solved by keeping your horse’s mouth healthy. Horses can’t tell us what’s wrong, but they will sure show us. When we think they are misbehaving, it’s likely that they are having a health issue that we need to address. Horses have huge hearts,
Gerald and Arlene Flake Win Arizona Farm Bureau Heritage Award
erald and Arlene Flake received the Arizona Farm Bureau Heritage Award during the 91st Annual Arizona Farm Bureau conference in Litchfield Park, Arizona during an awards ceremony recently celebrating farmers and ranchers throughout the state. The Heritage Award is given to individuals and families who are involved in agriculture and have given extraordinary voluntary service to their industry and to their Farm Bureau. Gerald is a fourth generation rancher in Snowflake, a town his great-grandfather helped settle. Both Gerald and Arlene studied at Arizona State University where Gerald earned a Bachelor of Science. Gerald first joined Farm Bureau when Floyd Hawkins was president in the late ‘60s and his first leadership role was as Secretary for the Navajo County Farm Bureau. Arlene took over the Secretary-Treasurer position and served Navajo County Farm Bureau for more than 30 years. She is also very active in the Women’s Committee events and participates with Ag in the Classroom. Gerald became president of the Navajo County Farm Bureau and began serving on the Arizona Board from 1980 to 1983. He returned to be county president and to the state
board in 2001 and was elected second vice-president in 2004 and served through 2007. When the second VP slot came open he felt it was important to have a rancher represented in the officer team and when he couldn’t find a rancher willing to run for the position he ran himself. He has received the FFA Honorary Chapter Farmer and he and Arlene served an 18-month mission in Nebraska for the Latter Day Saints and continue to be very active with their church. He is also a member of the Navajo County Cattleman’s Association. Arlene is the past president of the Silver Creek Performing Association and volunteered to coach softball and basketball with the Snowflake recreation program. She is currently serving as the Snowflake Heritage Foundation president. When asked what piece of knowledge they would share with other Farm Bureau members, they responded, “The more you put into Farm Bureau, the more you get out of it.” “We’re proud of all our award winners and all that they’ve achieved on behalf of agriculture,” says Arizona Farm Bureau President Kevin Rogers. “Our awards banquet is an opportunity to extend our appreciation to those who make a difference in our industry.”
and they really want to do their best for us humans. It is up to us to do all we can for them. Hereâ€™s to 2013 being a prosperous year for all! Leave those cans up, and see you all down the road! Francie LeBow, NM NBHA State Director
already donated one buckle. That makes it very worthwhile for racers to drive to the four corners and make 3 races in Ignacio and Farmington over a two day period! Our members are great with creative thinking and we are always ready to try something fun and new. Be sure to â€œlikeâ€? us on Facebook and
tune into our web site at nmnbha.com where more information, official points and member info is posted. Christine, Leanne, Haley, Cookie and myself wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope to see you running barrels this year! Kathy Price â€“ Director
NM-01 January News At our last race of the year members took advantage of the great weather. We had 68 open runners. Bailey Wiseman set the pace winning both the open and youth. Several members boosted their points to guarantee their year-end saddles, but will also be thrilled to learn our added money at our March Finals will be very close to the 15K goal we set! In 2013 we will have more double race weekends, adding a 4 Summer Saturday Night Buckle Series to pair up with our Sunday races. Renee Baird

en, I don’t know about you but I’m getting sick and tired of reading articles, usually written by women, about socalled men who have become lacto-ovo vegetarians, who are having spa treatments and pedicures, and who aren’t embarrassed about hosting baby showers for their fellow emasculated male friends. I can only associate this epidemic of the feminization of men with one thing: the declining consumption of red meat. Especially beef. It’s no coincidence that if you chart the decreasing consumption of beef the last 20 years and the sighting of men wearing earrings, fanny packs and purses, (now known as murses) you will find a direct correlation. My theory is there is something in meat that makes men men and that we started losing our masculinity about the time tofu and sushi became popular. The next thing we saw was men accompanying their

wives and girlfriends to the movies to watch chick flicks and afterwards going for dinner of vegetarian lasagna and herbal tea. I have seen far too many men who are now playing bunco with their wives instead of watching Monday Night Football, for it to be just a coincidence. The less beef we ate the more men we’ve seen wearing loafers without socks, getting facials, laying around on Sunday mornings in their sweatpants and fuzzy robes, reading novels and snuggling. It seems a guy can’t even go on TV these days without breaking down in tears, sobbing and confessing to Ellen that he once spanked his Shih tzu. Shameful, I say, just shameful. Supposed men are now wearing pony tails, drinking wine instead of beer and going on retreats to get in touch with themselves. I’ve even heard of men asking directions, reading instructions, and worrying about what position they left the toilet seat. What’s next, males taking bubble baths and shaving their legs amidst scented candles? What’s that you say, some men already get regular leg waxings! I suppose the next thing you’ll say is that some men are getting their backs shaved! Speaking of which, I needed a haircut the other day and went to one of those unisex hair cutting joints and they asked me if I wanted my eyebrows trimmed and plucked? Are you kidding me? Wait just a darn minute! It’s bad enough I can no longer find a real barber shop where I can read Sports Illustrated and Field and Stream in peace and talk about manly stuff. But, sadly, this too has changed as we ate less beef. I picked up a supposed man’s magazine at this clip joint and one article was about “male menopause” and another was, get this, “Fall Hairstyles For Men!” I kid you not. Since when do real men have hairstyles? It’s due to their lack of red meat that men are no longer behaving like men. They are keeping journals, watching soccer instead of baseball, and ordering fruit salads instead of biscuits and gravy and chicken fried steak. There’s been a role reversal. Men are driving BMW’s and women are driving monster trucks. It’s the men who are now getting sudden headaches. Just the other day I saw a guy in the store checking the fat grams on a Hostess Twinkie! If it were up to me I wouldn’t invite him to the next poker night or community craps game. I suppose he’d rather spend the evening anyway with a bunch of women debating the merits of arugula versus radicchio. In the manly NFL you hardly ever hear of any veg-heads, unless they are a punter or place kicker, and in areas of the country where men still eat their share of beef, like west Texas and South Dakota, you don’t see men sobbing and taking deer heads off the wall. The evidence is clear and I think we should take some of the beef checkoff money and spend it on research to find out what it is in red meat that makes men behave as men. And then we should slip some of it into their Sunday morning quiche. wwwLeePittsbooks.com
