Our weekends have been busy- like something every weekend. Family reunions, parties, and of course, team brandings. One of The Rancher's favorite team brandings is at small town Bancroft, Idaho.
Being in such a remote area with nothing around it but farms and ranches, you can see why he likes it. Only the real cowboys come out, and even though it's competitive roping, those cowboys make it a good time.
I might have mentioned before that I'm working in my roping. I want to be a REAL cowgirl, so I figure I better get this roping thing down. The Rancher thought that this would be a great time to give it a try. "I'll put her right in your loop, babe. It'll be easy!" Ya... I said no... I got a little stage fright. I better practice up a little more before I put some money down. And if your gonna lose (which I most likely would) you better look good doing it, and I'm pretty sure I would have just looked like a fool! Turns out it was a good choice to not rope because a big ol' storm came through with some crazy wind. I could just see me roping myself with that kind of wind...
But next year... I'll get all practiced up and next year I'll do it!
