At least it was above freezin' today. Not a whole lot but I'll take what I can get. We hauled the bulls to Stephenville this morning. We took the weanlings to Rent-a-husband to turn out on a lease for a year. Then we bucked the two year olds and Stubby.
Our partner on Stubby informed us this last week that he needed to sell his half. He no longer had the funds to take care of his half and needed the money. So luckily, after some negotiations, Rent-a-husband will be our new partner! That makes me happy. Stubby is my buddy. He meets me in the evenings at the gate waiting for his treats. The husband hates that I have made him such a pet. He was trying to load this morning and Stubby wouldn't move. He just stood next to me, blocking the alley. He loves his momma, what can I say.
So today we bucked him for the first time with a rider. Didn't know what to expect but he pleasantly surprised us. Wished he would have turned back a little sooner but for his first trip, we're pleased.
Just a little Crazy M history, this arena is the place where the husband and I held our invitational bullriding after our wedding. Quite the wedding reception huh! Our wedding invitations read "A bullriding will be held immediately following the ceremony." Don't see that very often, do ya?
