ll-Around The Southwestâ€™s source for rodeo, roping and barrel racing news and information June 2014 Volume 20 Number 6
ver the years, I’ve admittedly ruffled more than just a few feathers of producers. It’s not like I’m laying in wait for an opportunity to pounce on a producer’s miscue, but rather it’s one of those things I consider my responsibility… as the de facto “keeper of the flame” for all things rodeo and team roping related in this little piece of the universe. For the most part bad producers simply don’t last very long. I normally don’t have to do or say anything, and if I do, it’s merely to point out certain practices as a “matter of fact.” Once contestants understand what’s going on… their entry fee dollars go somewhere else and the problem is either fixed by the producer or he doesn’t last long in the business. Truth is, I have no idea why anyone would want to be a producer/contractor. It’s a hard, thankless job with skinny margins and endless headaches. For what they have at risk and invested… there is no way it’s worth it. I think the fundamental breakdown between contestant and producer/contractor is rooted in the contestants’ belief that producers are making money from them… and what a producer/ contractor makes detracts from what they could potentially earn. Uh… yeah… of course it does, but it’s a service, a cost of doing business, not unlike the fuel you have to buy or the vehicle you need to get you to the event.
Ad/Text deadline for the July issue of The All-Around is June 6, 2014.
I’ve been working on an article for next month’s issue about the cost/availability of roping cattle. In the process of digging through historical data, I found some really interesting facts that should cause all of us to shake our heads in disbelief with regard to the economic pressures that producer/contractors have had to deal with over the past 20 or so years. Consider this, in the last 20 years, the CPI (the official source for indicating the rate of inflation) has gained about 55%. In other words, something that cost you $1.50 in 1995, will cost you $2.35 today. Just think about what that means. If a typical entry fee in a rodeo event was $70 in 1995, $20 of which was stock charge, the same entry fee would have to be nearly $110, with the producer/contractor getting about $30 just to keep pace with the rate of inflation. Since rodeo contestants will just not go for $110 entry fees, something has to give. Contestants still want that $70 entry fee, which would be great, except they still want $50 of it to be in the payout. And where does that leave the producer/contractor? Well… it leaves them stuck earning what they did 20 years ago while everything in the world around them has increased in cost by 55%. Okay, so if that doesn’t help you to feel the pain of the producer/contractor, let’s make it continued on page 62

he 30-year-old Stephenville, TX cowboy out-roped a field laden with world champions and multitime National Finals qualifiers here April 27 to win the Joe’s Boot Shop Open Calf Roping, sponsored by AC Nutrition. Long roped four in 34.21 to claim the $3,775 winner’s check, bringing his total for the day to $7,299. His 9.73 run in the Championship round was simple, solid and efficient - Long had done the real work in the first three rounds. He won the first round in 7.74 to collect $2,164, then followed with a 8.9 in the second round to lead the 72-man field with a 16.64 on two. With a third of the field out on two, Long didn’t play it safe. He layed his ears back to finish his third run in 7.84, placing third in the round and adding $1,360 to his pot. More importantly, he remained first in the average with a 24.48 on three, guaranteeing him the final run of the roping. With 15 invited back, the margin between Long and No. 15 Cimarron Boardman was 6.46 seconds. Long held a margin of 2.07 seconds over former world

His short round run was a mirror image, finishing in 8.96. But he had needed an 8.58 to move Hanchey, so he moved to second with one left to rope. Long’s rode into the box needing 10.65 or better to win the roping. Leaving .93 on the table, Long finished in 9.73 and clinched the win with a 34.21 on four. Combined with the $492 check he won for second in Round 3 of the No. 9, Long finished the weekend with $7,791 in winnings for the 10th annual event. To date, no one was won the JBS Open more than once. Hanchey was second in 35.14, while Smith was third in 35.51.

Final Rodeo of the Season for the Grand Canyon Region! By Carollann Scott
ew Mexico State University hosted the final rodeo of the season for the Grand Canyon Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Although the wind tried to make for a rough time the rodeo still proved a success. By the end of the three days of rodeo the region champions and College National Finals qualifiers were named. “I thought it was a good rodeo,” Men’s All Around Champion Tyke Kipp from NMSU said. “It was a little extra special for me and my team because we built it from the ground up.” It took the NMSU team about two days to set up the arena that was designed to be similar to the arena at the College National Finals Rodeo. “It’s good to practice in something extremely similar to CNFR,” Kipp said. “I’ll set the same score at home and anywhere I practice to prepare for CNFR.” “I think that having the regional finals set up like the CNFR is a great idea,” Cheyenne Sherwood, the Breakaway Roping champion for the region from Central Arizona College, said. “It gives us a chance to see what it will be like in Casper and gets us some good practice runs in.” “I thought the regional finals rodeo was outstanding,” Austin Woods, a CNFR

thought much about winning the region,” Sherwood said. “I just wanted to go to the rodeos and rope up to the best of my ability. About the start of second semester I realized that I might have a chance to win the region and luckily I did.” As for her fellow competitors, Sherwood has all good things to say. “The competition is definitely tough but I think that makes everyone step up and rope better,” Sherwood said. “I don’t think I met a single person who wasn’t
qualifier from CAC. “It made it realistic to see who thrived in the setup for the CNFR so that we take the right people to compete and represent our region.” “It helps competing in a small arena before we go to the college finals,” Kit Pettigrew, the Tie Down Roping champion for the region, said. “Most the places we go are longer scores with big arenas so it was nice to change it up a little.” Pettigrew, of Mesalands Community College, dominated the tie down roping both rodeos and says the wins were his favorite part but not the most memorable part of the weekend. “Chaz Kananen’s head loop was pretty impressive in the short round,” Pettigrew said, “He needed that to win the region and Kit Pettigrew, Mesalands Community College I’m pretty sure that was most people’s favorite part of the rodeo.” anything but nice. I would like to Kananen, from Mesalands, took home especially point out that Kindee Wilson the heading saddle for the year. He also has more sportsmanship in her little won the second rodeo of the weekend finger than most people do in their with now partner Steven Gaona from Central Arizona College. “My plan coming in to the rodeo was to not make any mistakes and give my heeler good looks,” Kananen said. The weekend ended with a guaranteed trip for Kananen and Gaona to head to Casper, Wyo. for the CNFR. The women’s events were partly dominated by underclassmen. Nalynn Cline, a freshman from NMSU, took home the barrel racing title and Cheyenne Sherwood, a freshman from CAC took home the breakaway title. A familiar name to college rodeo, and multiple-time Grand Canyon Region All Around champion, Macy Fuller took home the goat tying title and the Women’s All Around. Sherwood who hopes to work in the agriculture industry after college gives luck some of the credit for the new saddle. “Going into this year I hadn’t really Blue Rice

whole bodies.” Wilson ended up second behind Sherwood and was right there to congratulate her on her win. Wilson’s horse “Boone” was named Women’s Horse of the Year for the region. Boone was used by fellow breakaway competitors and with Wilson in the team roping. The Men’s Horse of the Year was Austin Woods’s hazing and heading horse “Nemo.” “I think the Grand Canyon region is exceptionally competitive, and the rodeos are put on well,” Woods, who will rodeo and work construction now that his four years of college are up, said. “My favorite part about rodeoing in the Grand Canyon region has been the great weather at (most) the rodeos and the great

atmosphere, everyone seems to help one another and truly want other to do good.” “I feel like we have a good group of competitors and all the rodeos ran very smooth even when we had bad weather,” Arianna Assini, a freshman CNFR qualifier from Cochise College, said. The region is sending a loaded group of student athletes to compete in Casper. “I think it doesn’t matter what region you’re in,” Kipp said. “If you qualify in the top three you can compete.” Most all the competitors have the same goal to win the event they qualified in and the process is to take every run or ride one at a time. “Honestly my number one goal is to bring home the All Around title,” Kipp, who hopes to be an entrepreneur one day, said. “The Steer Wrestling or Saddle Bronc Riding title would be nice as

Bull Riding Action
well but I guess the first goal is to make the short go in both events.” “I am going to go in with the mind set that I will win it,” Sherwood said. “I know I have the ability, it’s just a matter of things coming together to make it happen.” “My goal for the CNFR is to do the best I can with the stock I draw,” Woods said. “That’s what I’ve done all year, hopefully draw something to win on and don’t screw up.” “My goal for the CNFR is probably like everyone else’s that is competing,” Pettigrew, who is studying Equine Dentistry, said.
“It would be to win the CNFR.” The Grand Canyon region prepared its competitors for CNFR with a solid set of rodeos this season and a final rodeo setup for what some called practice for Casper. The CNFR will be held at the Casper Events Center June 15-21, 2014.

Drought and Watering
hroughout the Southwest, and especially in Central Arizona, a winter gathering of rodeo professionals, ropers, barrel racers, and other athletes occurs annually. The draw toward a warmer, drier climate is understandable when your livelihood depends on daily practice to keep a competitive edge. And so, Arizona has become a winter home for those who are serious about their sport. Arizona’s dry climate offers fewer wasted practice days, but creates a continual struggle for nature’s most precious resource: water. The struggle over water is a centuries-old battle in the area. Today, water is the center of extensive diligence, with help from technological advancements, conservation efforts, and regulatory agencies designed to help Arizonans make the most of every drop. As a horse owner in the desert, whether you are on a municipal water supply, a part of a rural water district, or pumping from a deep well, you understand that access to water and its cost is a limiting factor in almost everything you do. Especially in times of drought, every task that requires water, from growing a lawn or garden to watering livestock, is regulated, restricted, and expensive. When you consider the current drought, which is projected to last another decade or so, questions arise about the future cost of all livestock-related resources. As rainfall totals continue to fall short, the issue of water conservation becomes more apparent for many people who may have never given it much thought before. Motivation for reducing
water consumption varies from person to person, but the surest methods remain constant, no matter your reasons for concern. For the horse owner, this translates into higher cost of ownership and greater overall expense. The next logical question is one of conservation. How can we reduce our expenses and our overall water use? By cutting costs, can we maintain or improve the quality of the water we provide our horses? Most people don’t think much about the way they water their horses, until it is time to dump a full tub and scrub the sludge out of the bottom. The “tank and float” system has been most horse owners’ idea of automatic watering for years, but have you stopped to think about the quality of water in this trough? The quality of the water you offer your animals is a major factor for consideration. Horses prefer water within roughly a 20-degree window. Outside of this, their intake decreases dramatically. This is especially important in warm, dry climates where it can be easy for horses to become dehydrated. Water is essential for all life, and even mild dehydration can affect a horse’s performance, feed efficiency, and overall health. Water temperatures in uninsulated tanks fluctuate throughout the year, freezing in the winter and growing algae, mosquito larvae and bacteria in the warm summer months. Effects of even mild dehydration in horses can be displayed through decreased performance and feed conversion, and increased incidence of colic. There are solutions available to both reduce the amount of waste involved in watering horses, and maintain or even improve the quality of the water, promoting your horses’ health. Classic Equine has introduced automatic waterers that dramatically reduce the waste and mess involved in watering horses. These units are efficient, effective, and surprisingly affordable. Classic Equine has been providing quality products geared toward the professional horseman for decades. Ritchie invented automatic watering nearly a century ago. Together they provide watering solutions tailored for any horse owner, climate, or situation. These units are guaranteed
2 x 2.5 THE
by a full 10-year warranty, and require very little maintenance. Classic Equine by Ritchie automatic waterers are good for you, since they greatly reduce the time and hassle of dumping, scrubbing, and refilling dirty tanks. They reduce energy costs and water consumption, saving you money while making your life easier. They are good for the horse, by promoting better hydration and cleaner water, which helps improve performance and overall health. These units are also good for the environment, by conserving valuable water and promoting responsible use of this precious resource. They help keep your barn and stalls clean and help eliminate places for mosquitoes to thrive. The heated models are more efficient than conventional trough heaters, saving you money in the winter as well. Units range from stall options, to portable units that install in seconds and water up to 20 head efficiently. These units effectively and efficiently replace the old “tank and float” while taking some of the hassle out of keeping your horses’ water fresh and available. The larger units are ideal for split pen situations, insulated with optional, efficient heat for colder winters, and provide fresh, clean, worryfree water for up to 40 horses. With the threat of further drought looming, there are many uncertainties about the future of water everywhere, especially in the Southwest. Conservation efforts are underway in semi-arid areas, but if the drought continues, they may not be enough. Rationing and restrictions are already in place in many areas, with more sure to follow in the near future. A proactive approach can help by reducing the amount of wasted water by livestock, waste, and evaporation, while giving you more practice or leisure time. Every step toward conservation is a step in the right direction. Why not take advantage of the opportunity to save time, money, and help ensure there is enough water for the future? Choose Classic Equine by Ritchie and provide fresh, clean, temperate water to promote the health of your horses and conservation of this precious resource. Stop wasting water, dumping and scrubbing dirty tubs, and spend more of your time in the saddle.

Story and Photos Compliments of Jim Olson
e was partners with Gene Autry. He was once son-in-law to Tom Mix. He won the Canadian Saddle Bronc Riding Championship— twice. He spent about forty-five years making his living in a rodeo arena. He was the legendary, Harry Knight. Born in Quebec City, Canada in 1907, the Knight family moved west when Harry was a young boy to Banff, Alberta. Harry’s father had a resort on Banff ’s, Lake Louise. Although the rest of the Knight family members were not “cowboys” so much, young Harry took an interest in animals and cowboying early on. He entered his first rodeo in Sundre, Alberta Canada in 1925, thus beginning a half-century career in rodeo. As a contestant in the rodeo arena, Harry excelled in the Saddle Bronc Riding event. He also entered Bareback, Steer Decorating, Calf Roping and Steer Riding at times. During his years as a contestant, he rode the bad bucking horse Five Minutes to Midnight for an
eternity of ten seconds (the required time back then, today an official ride is eight seconds). As mentioned above, he also won the Canadian Bronc Riding Championship, in 1926 and ’32. A bad injury at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933 nearly ended his riding career, however Harry recovered to compete through the early ‘40s. As Harry’s rodeo career started to wind down, he turned to the contracting side of the game—something he will forever be remembered for. In 1937 or so, Knight became a partner in the World Champion Rodeo Company. Back in 1936, when the cowboys went on strike at Boston Garden (the event that was the catalyst for the formation of the Cowboy Turtles Association or CTA), Colonel Johnson was the owner of the World Championship Rodeo Co. Perhaps as a result of the strike and the new cowboy’s association, Johnson became disgusted with rodeo, or maybe it was just time for him to retire. What ever the case may have been, Colonel Johnson sold his rodeo company to Everett Colborn of Dublin, Texas; Bill and Twain Clemens of Florence, Arizona and Harry Knight (who also lived in Arizona by this time). According to author Gail Hughbanks Woerner, “The company consisted of 150 saddle horses, 150 bucking horses, 50 Brahma bulls, 100 head of bulldogging cattle, 90 calves, 50 wild cows, 110 saddles and various other equipment.” Harry wound up selling out his interest in the company a few years later. Then, in 1954 legendary cowboy, Gene Autry, purchased the late Leo J. Cremer’s rodeo company and hired Harry Knight to manage it. In 1959, when Everett Colburn retired, the World Championship Rodeo Company was merged with the Cremer stock, making
Autry and partners one of the largest stock contractors of the day. At one time, it was reported Gene Autry’s rodeo company had over six-hundred head of stock. Knight remained the manager until he retired in 1968. Harry Knight was also the first Rodeo Cowboy Association (RCA) stock contracting representative to serve on the Board of Directors (196676). Earlier, in his contestant days, he had served on the board of the CTA as the Saddle Bronc Riding representative. Author Clifford P. Westermeier remembered Knight, “as a man who enjoyed diverse friendships ranging from New York’s upper crust to the poorest ranch hands in Arizona and Texas.” Writing about Knight as a contestant, rodeo historian Willard Porter said, “As most top-drawer bronc men do, Knight acquired a canny understanding of the chemistry that goes into the makeup of a dead-end bad horse.” Ruth Mix (third child of the great cowboy actor, Tom Mix) and Harry Knight were married in 1935. A newspaper report from the day says they spent their honeymoon at Livermore, California where they were both scheduled to compete in a rodeo. Ruth Mix was a rodeo, circus and wild west show performer and an actress. By this time in his career, Knight listed his address as Casa Grande, Arizona (he actually lived across the street from the first All-around Champion of the World, Earl Thode). Tom Thode, younger son of Earl Thode, and a former Yuma County, Arizona. Superior Court Judge, grew up across the street from Harry Knight. Tom related this story to the author. “The actor Tom Mix and his son-in-law, Harry Knight were pretty close. When Tom died, most newspaper reports of
the day claimed he was going from Tucson (after a night of wild partying) to Florence to see his son-in-law. The truth (as told to me by Harry himself) is that he was with Tom already—and they actually had left Tucson together that morning. “Tom had a flask of whiskey and was hitting on it pretty heavily as they sped towards Florence. He kept passing it over to Harry, who would take a little sip now and then, and then pour a bigger batch of it down the side of the car. Pretty soon, the whiskey ran out, so Harry told Tom to pull over at a little country bar they were approaching. When Tom slid the car to a stop in front of the bar, Harry jumped out and said he would go in and get more whiskey. “After ten minutes or so, Tom Mix got tired of waiting and went in to see what the delay was. He went into the bar and didn’t see anyone but the bartender. He asked the bartender if he had seen a cowboy come in there in the last ten minutes or so. The bartender said he had, and that the man
had walked in the front door then straight out the back—and off into the desert! Tom got tired of waiting and soon left without Harry. “The rest is history. A few miles up the road, the accident happened that killed Tom Mix. Harry Knight knew Tom was not safe to ride with, but also knew Tom would not listen to reason at that point, so he got out of the car when he could. By leaving when he did, it most likely saved his life.” Harry went on to live a full and accomplished life after that (as outlined above). In November 1985, seventy-nineyear-old Harry Knight (who owned a ranch and lived in Fowler, Colorado by then), was inducted into the Canadian Rodeo Historical Society at Edmonton, Alberta. In December of that same year, he was also inducted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. The great BUILT BY-P/U W/CHNGS VSA Harry Knight died April 5, 1989.

COWBOY UP Last Man Standing Tour Las Lunas, NM May 2-3, 2014 By Travis Regensburg
or the first time on our tour, we had good weather! More teams came out to play. On Friday night, we had 70 teams in the 12 Slide. The champions were Cole Barner and Pedro Maestas, winning $1100. Second place was Shane Jody and Fabian Garcia, winning $850. Third place was Ryan Vanlandingham and Adrian Martinez, winning $550. Fourth place was Roy Montoya and Justin Marquez, winning $300. In the 5N Under, Jim Knopp’s lefthanded approach clicked with the fresh cattle. Jim Knopp was a double-dipper, placing twice. The final 5N Under results: First went to Ryan Davidson and Jim Knopp, winning $1000. Second place went to Dwayne Griego and Jim Knopp, winning $700. Third place went to Mike Fresquez and Tony Mendez, winning $500 and fourth went to Mathew Lovato and Eddy Alcon, winning $250. The winner of the Last Man Standing Match saw a familiar face: Jim Knopp! Jim Knopp was the first to win without using his Buyback option. He won without using his buyback option— which was first in the history of all the 342 teams in the Last Man Standing Tour. The Buyback Challenge Bucks paid out twice his buyback purchase price in addition to the 100% payback! As entries were being taken for the Last Man Standing Match Tour, a challenge was made as to why I (Travis Regensberg), the producer and creator of the 100% payback Last Man Standing, had never roped in a match to date. So I took the challenge to heart. Jim Knopp was sitting under a tree in the shade just relaxing and asked if he wanted to partner up. I told Jim, “Lets win this thing!” That’s all Jim needed to hear as he turned it up several notches that day.
Results (20 teams entered) 1. Travis Regensberg and Jim Knopp (#9 team) $1200 + 2X buyback money 2. Cole Barner and Eddy Alcon (#11 team) $800

The Legend Levi Garcia
he Legend Levi Garcia was a true team roper and a humble cowboy. Join us in celebrating his memory July 4-6 in Cimarron, New Mexico with the Cowboy Up Last Man Standing Challenge—a roping event for all true team ropers and cowboys. The Fourth of July Rodeo kicks off the event on Friday. Saturday and Sunday will begin with the Cowboy Up Last Man Standing Challenge with Memorial Buckles to the champions. A 12 Slide will follow on Saturday, and a 5N Under on Sunday. To cap off the weekend, we will give away saddles to the high money header and heeler of the events (including the rodeo roping).
The Legend Levi Garcia was a lifelong rancher from Roy, New Mexico. Team roping was a family tradition. Levi and his wife, Confie, would rope right along with their children, ohnny, Jimmy, Jeanette, and Danny. They loved roping in Cimarron’s Fourth of July Rodeo. Levi Garcia’s team roping influence didn’t stop there. He started one of the first team roping clubs known in northern New Mexico along with Pat Lewis, Bob Bonds, Norman Potter, and Roy Plumber. Levi went on to become a three-time World Champion Century Roper and he was featured in many roping magazines. Levi modeled how to rope, how to cowboy up in tough times, and how to endure. With such a history, one wonders if that inspired the team roping world we know today. Levi used to tell me, “Quate (buddy), team roping is like black jack—missing

is like hitting 22! You can only win if you are still in the game.” As a team roping producer, I thought about Levi’s dicho (saying) when I designed the Cowboy Up Last Man Standing Challenge. This is a team roper’s roping. The Cowboy Up Last Man Standing Challenge is a unique format that rewards the team ropers who are “still in the game.” Let me explain. First things first: this is a 100% payback roping! All entry fees are returned to the winners. The Cowboy Up Last Man Standing Challenge has a built-in handicap. Higher number teams start the roping, and each new round picks up lower number teams. All teams that catch under the cutoff time progress—except the slowest time and those teams with no times. This process continues until we have our winners—and we pay one money for every ten teams entered. To make things even more interesting, at the team roper’s choice, a team can buy back into the event if the team misses. All entry fees are paid as prize money—but my theory is that the team ropers there to win will buy back into the event. Any buyback money is a stock charge. Where else can you play for 100% of your entry fees and get a second chance? We hope you come celebrate The Legend Levi Garcia’s memory in Cimarron, New Mexico over the Fourth of July weekend!

t’s that time of year again. Only during one special week in late June do a handful of the best in the team roping business re-appear in the arena, drawn to Reno, Nev., for the Bob Feist Invitational. The 37th edition, which returns to the Reno Livestock Events Center at 8 a.m. on June 23, boasts the richest payoff in its history; more than $700,000 in cash and prizes. That could be why organizers received record entries, though only about 100 teams are allowed into the roping. The “original three” – Allen Bach, Denny Watkins and Mike Beers – will be back for their 37th straight BFI; plus the roster includes new match-ups like Matt Sherwood/Dugan Kelly and Aaron Tsinigine/Ryan Motes. It’ll be the only chance all year to watch veterans like Rube Woolsey, who will bring 16-year-old South Texan Daniel Braman to the party. One splashy BFI return in particular will be made by Michael Jones, a former NFR average winner who has re-teamed with Travis Tryan for this year’s event. And fans love the one-time chance to watch former NFR header Jason Adams, who retired from rodeo at 26 and doesn’t
This year’s winners of the BFI will earn more than the $60,000 each taken home by Trevor Brazile and Patrick Smith last year.

Interstate 40, Exit 81, Watch for Action!
ver the July 4th Holiday, you might want to allow a little extra time if you are planning to get off at exit 81 on I-40 in Grants, NM. It most likely will be busy as The Grants Rodeo Association just south of I-40 on exit 81 has a full schedule of rodeo activity planned for the week. It is the 90th Annual July 4th Celebration “Wild West Days Rodeo.” Starting on Tuesday July 1 and continuing Saturday July 5 is the National Senior Pro Rodeo and Senior Pro Rough Stock and Timed Event Rodeo. These are National Senior Pro Rodeo Association sanctioned events and will draw contestants from all across the United States as contestants make one of the last attempts to gather points as they try to qualify for the Senior Pro Rodeo Finals in Las Vegas Nevada. It is always exciting to see some of the best veterans of the rodeo industry compete at these events. Saturday, July 5th will bring the barrel racers to town as the Southwest Barrel Racing Association hosts their open 4D Barrel Race. This event is scheduled to start just before lunch at 11:00 a.m. and has races for Open racers, youth and seniors as well. This is always an action
packed event as contestants from all across the southwest compete for some great prizes and payouts. An opportunity for both the spectators and contestants to relax and have some great western fun, both Friday and Saturday night, there will be time to but on the dancing boots and dance to the music of “Whiskey Wind” at the Cow Palace located right on the rodeo grounds. Sunday July 6th starts off with some faith, fellowship and food as the doors open to the Cow Palace for the Cowboy Church Service and Pancake Breakfast. This is always a wonderful opportunity to meet and worship with good folks and enjoy some of the best “flap-jacks” around. Once everyone’s hunger has been satisfied, the rest of the day is scheduled for junior rodeo cowboys and cowgirls. The 18 and Under Jr. Rodeo starts at 9:00 a.m. and is guaranteed to showcase some of the best up and coming rodeo talent
around. At 2:00 p.m. the 6 and Under Dummy Roping is sure to bring out the “pint-size” ropers to give them a chance to get in on the action and make a run at a brand new “Half Breed Roping Dummy” to take home for themselves. So it will be worth the little extra time to get through the traffic at exit 81 over the holiday because the Wild West Days Rodeo is going to provide some great rodeo action for both young and old. Make sure the vehicle is full of fuel and don’t forget to mark this event on your calendar. Look for more detailed information in the ad in this issue of The All Around or go to www.grantsrodeo.com

Mesalands Rodeo Team Qualifies Seven to the College National Finals
he Mesalands Community College Rodeo Team recently had two rodeo competitions at New Mexico State University (NSMU) in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and brought home three championship titles. After a strong performance at NMSU, the Mesalands Rodeo Team will have seven team members competing in the biggest college rodeo competition of the year, the College National Finals Rodeo. The Mesalands Rodeo Team will have enough student athletes to send their entire Men’s Team to the college finals. “The NMSU Rodeo was fantastic! This was a stressful time to be a Coach, but also a fun day to be a Coach,” said Tim Abbott, Interim Intercollegiate Rodeo Coach at Mesalands Community College. “It was really exciting to see the student athletes execute what we have been working on all season. They kept their mental and physical composure throughout the rodeos. Some of our student athletes had to perform very well in the last rodeos to secure their CNFR spot.” Sophomore Betty Pack of Aztec,
New Mexico earned her ticket to the CNFR at the NMSU rodeo. Pack had an exceptional weekend in the breakaway roping event. She had to place at each rodeo to qualify for the college finals and she did. Pack roped all three of her calves and was crowned the breakaway roping champion for the weekend, winning a buckle. “I knew it was possible, I just had to convince myself that I could do it,” Pack said. “I’m excited and nervous at the same time to be competing at nationals, knowing that I will have to go out there and compete against other schools. Also, for a first-year Coach to send seven students to nationals, is pretty amazing!” Pack went from ninth place and advanced to third place in the Grand Canyon Region by only nine points. CRX’D In tie down roping, sophomore Kit Pettigrew of Ft. Sumner, New Mexico won the tie-down roping championship title and earned himself a buckle. Pettigrew also finished first in the regional year-end standings and brought home a saddle as well. Coach Abbott
www.RedBluffBuckles.com P.O. Box 98 • Continental Divide, NM 87312 PH: 505-862-7042 • FAX: 505-862-7646 RedBluff@advantas.net
stated that Pettigrew outperformed the other student athletes at the rodeo. Pettigrew will also be competing at the college finals. In team roping, sophomore Chaz Kananen (header) of Roy, Montana with Steven Gaona (heeler) from Central Arizona College, took first in the short round and in the average earning 120 points. Coach Abbott said that he felt Kananen had the best run in team roping for the year. Kananen brought home the team roping championship title for the weekend and won a buckle. Kananen was also named the team roping regional champion for the yearend standings and also won a saddle at the rodeo. Gaona did not qualify for the college finals and therefore, Kananen will be competing with fellow teammate sophomore Morgan McVay (heeler) of Sparks, Nevada. McVay started the NMSU rodeo fifth in the region, which meant he too had to perform well to qualify for the college finals. He placed first in the long round and placed in the average and in the short round. McVay took third place in the region by only two points, earning his ticket to the CNFR. Three other members of the Mesalands Rodeo Team maintained their positions at the NMSU rodeo and will also be competing at the 2014 CNFR. Sophomore Daniel Baeza of Chihuahua, Mexico also earned his ticket to the 2014 CNFR. He finished the year-end standings in second place in team roping. Sophomore Edmiles Harvey of Tsalini Spring, Arizona was the first Mesalands qualifier for the college finals in bareback riding. He took third place in the year-end standings. Sophomore Devren Myer of Santa Fe, New Mexico finished the year-end standings in second place and will be competing in bull riding at the college finals. “It’s definitely a step above what we do at our college rodeos,” Myers said “The pressure is on when you make the college finals. You have to keep a clear mind and go at it like it’s just another rodeo, but it’s easier said than done.” The 2014 CNFR will take place in Casper, Wyoming, June 15-21, 2014.

21st Annual “Wild Thing”
Producer – Larry Peterson
t’s been happening for 21 years and it is still the #1 Open Bull Riding in the Southwest. It’s The Wild Thing Championship Bull Riding, brought to you by producer Larry Peterson and the Wild Thing Productions crew. If you are a bull rider or a spectator and you have never attended this event, you don’t want to miss this one. Larry and his crew are working to make this 21th Annual Wild Thing Championship Bull Riding one you won’t ever forget. Once again Larry has added more money! This year the added money has been increased to $8000 and the total estimated payout for this year will be $26,000. “I don’t think there is a pro-am bull riding anywhere in the US that pays this kind of money.” Says Larry Peterson, owner of Wild Thing Productions. “This year we are guaranteeing $8,000 or more to the first place winner.” In addition to the increased prize money the winner of the event will take home the Famous Wild Thing Buckle by Red Bluff Buckles. If you claim to be a bull rider you need to be at this event. Mark your calendars for July 11th and 12th, 2014. This event has become well known for some of the best bull riding on earth, but the nightly fireworks displays are out of this world! Wild Thing Productions holds nothing back when it comes to their pyrotechnics. If you think the Fourth of July has a lot of fireworks you haven’t seen this display.
There will be some of the best bucking bulls and bull riding action on the planet. This year Larry will be giving away a 50 inch Toshiba Flat Screen Television each night to a lucky spectator in the stands. Man that’s Wild! Last year’s event pushed the attendance capacity of Red Rock State Park in Gallup, New Mexico, and even though there was standing room only, everyone walked away having seen one of the best shows in the Four Corner area. Sammy Andrews Rodeo Company, Owen Washburn, Martine Baca and Bowdy plan to bring only the best bulls in their string to the 21th Annual event this year, making it a riding contest not a drawing contest. With this list of Stock Contractors you are no doubt going to see some of the best bull riding anyone could ever ask to see. “If you are a bull rider, you would be crazy not to attend this event.” Adds Larry. “Every year so far, if you make the buzzer, you get a check.” The Wild Thing Championship Bull Riding is scheduled for July 11 - 12, 2014 and will highlight 90 of the top bull riders from across the county who are looking to get their name on the list of past champions. Entries open on Thursday June 26 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and Friday June 27 from 9 a.m. through 10 a.m. A non-refundable $100 deposit is required to guarantee a spot in the event and must be received by July 9, 2014. Late entries and stand-by entries will be taken July 10, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. All entries can be made over

even more real. In 1995 the average cost of a gallon of diesel was about $1.10/gal. Today it’s about $3.70/gal. So… for the amount of fuel that cost him $100 to haul his stock to an event in 1995, now it’s costing him about $335. Where is he getting that additional $235 from? And how about that pickup he has to have to haul his steers and calves? In 1995 an F-250 Diesel pickup was about $22,000. Today, that same pickup is about $42,000. And hay prices? According to the USDA, a ton of alfalfa was $88 in 1995. Today, it costs $190/ton. Look, I know all these expenses are personally realized by contestants as well. We are all paying higher prices for fuel, for new trucks and for feeding our horses. But that’s the point. We pay these higher prices, and though it’s painful, we absorb it and attribute it to inflation. Still, at the same time, we all go crazy when a producer/contractor attempts to pass along some of his direct costs to us. So there it is… and there are just a few ways it can go from here. The first option is to raise entry fees, allowing the producer/contractor to get the same percentage cut that he has to have to survive. Team roping has already made the shift in this direction. Higher entry fees mean the producer can still take out the standard 33%. It seems like a good solution until you begin to consider the long-term effects. Team roping was built on the backs of working-class guys. Guys who worked hard all week, came home and practiced during the evening, and then went roping on the weekend. Getting started, it wasn’t hard to find a round-
robin for $100 where he could rope all day. IT WAS AFFORDABLE! When was the last time you even heard of a round-robin for $100? Producers simply can’t make the economics of those events work and so those kinds of events and others that helped get people started in the sport are gone… and so are the people who were getting started. The long term effects of this shift have not been fully realized. The second option is to allow producer/contractors a larger percentage. To be honest, this is probably the best approach. Entry fees can stay level and producer/contractors can stay in business. The likelihood of that happening however is pretty slim. Contestants just won’t go for it. Even if it is explained to them, and they truly understand it, they just won’t accept it. It all goes back to that ingrained idea that a producer/ contractor is making money off them, and they just can’t get past it. And so that leaves one alternative… just keep forcing producer/contractors to do the same for less. No question, this is the most popular approach among contestants… and why not… it’s been working this way so far. But, has it? Look around at the sport of calf roping. There is no better example of contestants taking control and running the sport in what they believe is their best interest. And what is the current state of that sport? It is quickly disappearing from the landscape. There is a reason you don’t let the inmates run the asylum. Think about it….

f I wasn’t in the beef business my second career choice would be that of a dairyman. I know that would mean no horses or brandings, and I’d have to wear those knee-high rubber boots that are forever springing a leak. And I’d still have to fix fence, just not as much of it. I like dairying because in college I used to hang around the project dairy where a lot of my best friends were dairy majors and, I hate to admit this, but I really liked milking Holsteins. I know that dairy cows aren’t the most intellectual animals in the barnyard but there are some advantages over beef cows: you can gather them by clanging a bucket, I’d never get bucked off again, and if I was a dairyman I’d always have access to that nirvana of the taste buds, chocolate milk. The biggest drawback I see is that there’s never any rest for a dairyman. If I was a dairyman this is how my dairy diary might read. Monday- Got up tired again at 3:30 to milk the cows. Jose went back to Mexico so that means I’ll be doing all three milkings daily until he gets back. I sure wish someone would invent the technology where cows could milk themselves. Note to self: Make a bigger effort to meet a nice gal, maybe a Dutch woman or a Portuguese, who wants to settle down, raise a nice family and become a slave to lactation just like me. Tuesday- In between milking cows I had to calve the heifers, breed some cows, treat several for mastitis, chop silage, feed all the cattle and fix the front end loader that keeps breaking down. Tried to sneak a barely-crippled cow by the guys at the salesyard but they wouldn’t take her. I considered bribery but I haven’t received my milk check yet and didn’t have any money in
my wallet. Tomorrow I have my yearly meeting with my banker and my stomach has been churning. (Pun intended.) I don’t know if it’s the banker, or the fact that Jose called and said he isn’t coming back. Wednesday- After the morning milking I took the banker to lunch and tried to get him drunk so he’d approve next year’s operating loan. He kept talking about “his” cows, “his” land, “his” tractors and kept saying “our” assets had to be collateralized. Whatever that means. I sure wish he’d come milk “his” cows once in awhile. In the end he not only extended my loan, he urged me to expand because he said he can’t foreclose on “my” cows because then he’d have to show a loss. The big difference between he and I is that the cow manure is on the outside of my boots. Thursday- Got a letter from another government agency who said they wanted to fine me $75,000 per day because they found on my property an endangered microscopic insect eating an endangered invisible plant. Friday- Went to bed flat worn out and realized I’d forgotten to eat today. The “Big Event” for the day was I got to buy a new front end loader because the old one finally went up in flames. Well, I didn’t exactly get a new one, but I got a good deal on a 10 year old tractor that only cost $100,000. Saturday- My “new” old front end loader broke down twice today. I finally got hold of Jose at his mother’s house in Sonora and begged him to come back and promised if he did return ASAP I’d leave the dairy to him when I die. I think he was leaning towards coming back until I told him that. Sunday- Opened Saturday’s mail and
tried to make heads or tails of my milk check. The way I read it the government multiplies the non fat dry price by either the price of block cheddar, the price of a ton of alfalfa or the total points scored in the last Super Bowl. Then they subtract the price for California powder and add the price of ice cream to arrive at a benchmark that is far below my cost of production. So after I milked the cows three times today I flushed their milk down the drain. Dairy Diary for next week: Repeat. And repeat. Repeat and repeat. wwwLeePittsbooks.com
