Calgary Stampede Day #3

Howdy All!

Oh it has been a long day.  I got up early and fed oats.  I awoke early, so I let Rick have a sleep in morning.  It is so nice and quiet around the barns at 5:30 AM.  According to me……..the best time of the day.

I would like to take this time, and thank you all for the sincere messages you sent on the passing of my dad.  He was a special man and always will be.  He won’t be here in person, but we will feel him in spirit.


Finding Ricky



Cleo Energy

Before the racing, we had our sponsor company, Cleo Energy come back to meet the horses.  They were pretty excited to meet Rick, but even more excited to see the horses.  We had a little bit of fun with the Rick Fraser paddle board faces.


A little bit of a ride goes a long way

Rick always loves to have the people come and experience a little bit of country.  This gal has been on a horse, but was eager once again.  Cody was excited to see our time at the end of the evening as it was a 1:13.18, which calcuted to being 18th on the day.


So Proud

Tonight coming off the two barrel, Rick had hooked Spirit o the Left Lead, Ranger on the Right leader.  Jim was the left Wheeler and Bacardi on the right.  Things must have gone well as another competitor noticed, I mean really notice how well the Right Leader performed.  He was interested in who he was.


Around the Top

Our outriders tonight were Chanse Vigen pon  and Ryan MacNeill.  The race went well and the boys did their job.  We posted a 1:13.18 which was prett y respective.

As I’m really tired,  

Have a great day………………………I’m going to head to bed, as I really need the rest.
