It was the most unorganized, poorly ran futurity I had ever witnessed. It was awful. Plus around 8p, I got a horrendous headache. I laid in the truck for several hours before and after Stubby bucked.
But there were some silver linings to the crappy event. I got to hang out with this cutie patootie pup named Ace.
Isn't he just adorable. A good friend of ours had him and let me watch him thru-out the event. I just loved it. He told me whenever I want a pup to let him know, he always had one for me. I just had to say when. He lost his main dog last week as well. So he knew what we were goin thru regarding Lil Man.
Oh, and the other silver lining.....
Stubby won SECOND place!!
He did awesome! Especially since he sat out in a pen for hours upon hours until after midnight to buck. We are so proud of him.
Here's a look at how he won...
