The Rodeo At Last!! ~ Disregard the date---this is Friday,June 26th!!

Bow Wow Whoopee!! The Kootenai River Rodeo is in town and I have a pretty little filly (WFT) accompanying me! Yes, the lovely Aggie has flown in from Boston and agreed to ‘go cowgirl’ for the weekend! She even brought one of our best buddies, the fabulous Miss Asta, to help with her outfit changes and provide some pictures!! This is a Pro-West sanctioned rodeo ~ the real thing friends! My little heart was just pounding in anticipation of Agatha‘s arrival. When she and Asta stepped off their private Learjet at the county airport I almost fainted. Such classy pups with how many bags?? Asta said she was just along to help Aggie out and said (& I quote), “You won’t even know I am there dear. Totally behind the scenes on this trip.” Of course, she said it with her little Baba Wawa accent, which I can not begin to imitate. He he.

Yee Haa!! Giddy up bronco!
All you wanna-be cowpokes, eat yor hearts out!!

Here is a quote about the rodeo from the Boundary County Digest, a local paper: Ken (Pres. of the Selkirk Saddle Club) explained that the Kootenai River Rodeo is a Pro-West sanctioned rodeo. Most of the contestants are Pro-West, but any resident who wants to complete can enter as a “local cowboy” if he/she lives within 75 miles of Bonners Ferry… Welllllll, guess who entered the team roping contest with me??!! Okay, she got disqualified due to the 75 mile rule, but what fun we had!! Doesn't she cut a pretty figure on that horse??

The above 4 photos were taken by our dear friend Asta. She is a master photographer. Seems she takes after her artistic momma. Thanks Asta!! We'll have a few more rodeo pics later. Hope you have enjoyed these. We all had a great time!!
Welshie Hugs and Kisses,

Hootie Boy!

You and Agatha look FABULOUS in your cowboy gear! I'm totally speechless (well, almost). What a great date! I'm guessing you all took some time out for a little BBQ I hope? It's fun to see the city girl Aggie getting down & dirty with her cowpoke fella, man.

You guys sure know how to live!

Goober love & smooches,

If you think Broncho busting is tough, wait until you attempt the Lacie Roundup. In addition to leather chaps, you may want to entirely cover yourself with tough cowhide for protection. And keep a red-hot branding iron ready just in case (the target is big enough!).

Looks like you had a ball!

Your pal,


Martha Basset said...

Did we miss this post!!! We thought those pics were way cool - bronco busting doggies.
The outfits were amazing. What an amazing adventure you guys had.
love and kisses

I seriously am going to go over to Petey's housie and slug him...did you READ HIS COMMENT??????

A Lacie Roundup?? Branding my cute fuzzie posterior...

I think he might be one Scots shortbread short of a package????!!!

Honestly...I just came by to chat and see this debasing comment..though considering the source, am not totally surprised...

Maybe we could take Petey to a rodeo, Hootie...he could be the calf....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


Asta said...
