Ropin' the Wind

Lately, John and I have had the roping bug. It comes every spring as brandings begin to loom in the air. Well, Palm Sunday seemed like a good day to get together and loosen up our shoulders. 

Ropes come in every shape and size. My favorite is ole blue in the lower right. It is a 3/8" extra soft 30'er. 

Doesn't matter to John, though. He'll use whatever he can find. 

And nail it!

I wasn't used to this Texas Longhorn dummy. 

But we seemed to manage. 

Fun stuff. Roping is like dancing. I'm not worth a darn at either, but it's sure fun to watch those who are. The only way to get good, however, is through practice. That I can do. Brandings are coming up and I need to be ready. You never know when you're gonna get the call to enter the pen. When it comes, you don't want to disappoint. On to the next one.

Rest a While

We need to be healthy in order to be holy.
