I'm Proud to be an American...


What an awesome weekend. I'm so thankful to live in America. I'm so thankful to be Catholic. And I'm so thankful to be a Cowboy.  

Special thanks to my buddy Twain Ayers.  Providence brought us together.  Not sure who helped who more, but I do know I'd still be staring at my saddle if it wouldn't have been for him.  You have a gift for coaching rodeo, Twain.  May God bless your journey.  Thanks for being on mine.


The Ride

A Real Ride

One to the next one.

Dad and I.  You always got my back.

2020 is not a summer for wimps.  It's a summer for Cowboys.  We work hard, we play hard.  These are my boys: Seth Hostetler, Lee Noel & Kurt Mentele.  Wyoming Catholic Cowboys don't roll alone.  We need each other to lean on.  Thanks to all of you too.  We did buck for America and we will continue to do so.  Life is a rodeo, you get bucked off, you get back on again.  In all seriousness, this'll probably be my last stab at saddle bronc.  The only way to get better is to get on a lot more horses.  That's probably more time and effort than I have to give. Check it off the bucket list I guess.  But for now, we're on to the next one!
