Rocky Mountain House Day #1

Howdy Chuckwagon Friends

The count down is on.  Only 3 more race days left of the season.  Yesterday I ran into town to do the last laundry stop.  I just wanted to get it all done.  The rest of the day, we just relaxed and visited with family and friends before race time.

As I wait for the harrows after heat 3 to take our outriding horses to the infield, I have the most prime seating to watch the first three races.  I climb up on top of our trailer which is located right on the other side of the back stretch.  Great for some awesome shots.

We love coming to Rocky, as the scenery here is so beautiful, on the grounds and the surrounding country side.

Cody was in the 2nd heat off the three barrel.  I watched from the roof top.  He had a great turn off the barrels and ran an impressive race 3 wide keeping up with the other 2 wagons inside of him.  Running 3 or 4 wide is just that many more steps than the other guy on the rail.  He placed 29th on the day with a 1:17.02.

We are happy to be carrying our sponsors tarp, Henry’s Western Wear for this show.  Rick was off the one barrel tonight and was very pleased with the out come.  The hook was Spirit (Left Lead) Spin (Right Lead) Glory (Left Wheel) and Vegas (Right Wheel)  with Stadium and Ice being rode by Cole and Chance Flad in the outriding department.  We posted a 1:15.21 at the finish line for a 3rd day money run.  Whahoo!

The sky was spectacular as the sun was setting.  I managed a few photos of the beautiful sky.

The nights are chilly here, its been getting down to 5 degrees or colder.  We could put the furnace on, but instead we just have to cuddle more……………save on the propane.

P.S.  LIFE GOES ON…………….Whether you choose to move on and take a chance in the unknown. Or stay behind, locked in the past, thinking of what could’ve been.
