My Thoughts

My wild and woolly days…

Well, its Calgary Stampede time (YAHOO!) and  if we make it to Calgary for a day that will be great…because between kids and haying…life is a little busier these days.

But, about 9 years ago, I was there everyday!

I had the FABULOUS experience of riding for the Calgary Stampede Ranchgirls for 5 summers and loved every minute of it!

The Calgary Stampede Ranchgirls are those beautiful ladies that open the rodeo each and everyday carrying the flags and getting the crowd ready for some fabulous entertainment. And boy, is it exciting!

Thousands of cheering people, fast music and fireworks!

And nothing is more exciting than horses and fireworks!

So much fun!

So, if you see those lovely ladies out there this week, give them a wave and a YAHOO!!

  1. Hi there! I just found your blog this morning, and I love it! We, too, have a farm (here in Arkansas) and my husband was out bailing hay today. It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how new or expensive the tractor/equipment is, there is always some sort of breakdown. Oh, by the way, I LOVE the name of your blog!

  2. That looks like so much fun – here in Arkansas we have the Rodeo of the Ozarks “Rounders” who perform drills – your horse must have to be in great shape!! The figure-eight run looks kind of scary if you miscalculate when to cross?? Love the outfits!!

I love to hear what you think!!!
