Our First Calf Roping

When we speak of firsts we usually mean for Scout. This time it is a first for the whole family. Riley entered the Joe's Boot Shop Calf Roping. When we watched last year he said that he was going to enter and he has tied calves a little throughout the year. He really only started roping hard about three weeks ago. He had some bad luck, a great run, and two so-so runs. We were not required to stay for the short-go if you know what I mean. It was a pretty long day/night, but he had fun and we had fun watching.

Gigi and Papaw came to watch. While I was gone to get supper Gigi bought Scout this pink horse. Surprise!! Well it turned out to be great entertainment even if it is pink.

They brushed the horse.....

They cleaned out his feet........EWWWW...YUCK!!!

Mostly Scout rode the horse.

Not sure how the legs kept from breaking.

She also pulled the bridle off of the horse no less that fifty times.

We get so many compliments on these spurs. I'm already sad for when she outgrows them.

My handsome calf-roper hubby sporting "the string". I love it!!!
