Thought I'd try to confuse everyone a little. WRCA is Working Ranch Cowboys Association and WCRR is World Championship Ranch Rodeo. This little shindig took place in Amarillo, Texas about 2 weeks ago. I'm going to blame my late posting on my Sis-in-Law.....well not really her as much as the United States Postal Service. She of course took lots of really good pictures and I did not. I think I have about 7 from Sunday that are horrible. So....Kait mailed me a CD about a week and a half ago and I still have not received it. I should have done this a long time ago and just added pictures when I got them. I'm a little slow sometimes.

The Riley Smith Family

Preston, Scout Preston, & Mimi

We had a really great time. Pat, Scout, and I went up pretty early on Thursday and ran a few errands and shopped. Tandy and her boys came for the Thursday night performance. Riley, Tripp, and Autumn showed in the ranch horse competition on Friday. Riley qualified Gunner for the RHAA Finals in Abilene (May). Autumn was the only girl in her class and she placed 2nd......think we are a little proud? She did great!! Scout didn't get much of a nap, so she was too happy at the rodeo on Friday night. Brook and Kait arrived Friday afternoon so we were extra glad to seem them, but not as glad as they were to see Scooter. (Note: Only I am allowed to call her this name.....not sure if we want that to stick. Hope and her bunch call her Scootie.)

Uncle Brook, Scout, & Aunt Kait

On Saturday morning Scout caught up on her sleep. She slept from 9 until 12 and then we had to wake her up. We ate lunch with the Smith Crew and then watched Summer show in the ranch horse competetion. She was also the only girl and placed 4th. I'm telling should see Alotofbull get around. I couldn't ride him. Summer did awesome!! By the way......Check out the December issue of Western Horseman for a little piece about Alotofbull and Tripp.

Riley heeling!

Summer & Riley

I've been forgetting to tell how the rodeo was going this whole time. Sandhill got a no time first thing on Thursday, didn't have any milk in the cowmilking on get the idea. They just started out on the wrong foot. By Saturday they were doing pretty well and on Sunday they kicked some hiney. We're pretty sure they set the arena record in the penning with a 34 second run.

Sooo.....we had a very full, fun weekend. We were pooped, but glad to see everyone and get away from Earth for awhile.
