I dream it, I work hard, I grind 'til I own it

Hello Everybody!! 

It's currently 12:36 AM on a Thursday Morning here in Montana. I just wrapped up a DS ( Double Shift ) at work and i'm currently writing this blog from home while drinking a bunch of caffeine and eating a ton of State Fair laffy-taffy! Haha. It's almost the MOST wonderful time of the year.. Spring/Summer Rodeo are getting ready to start, and the kick off to the ERA Rodeo ( Elite Rodeo Assoc. ) kicks off March 25th - 26th, 2016 in Redmond, Oregon!! I'm super EXCITED to see how the ERA does in it's first year of touring the states. It's even cooler that they are kicking off the first stop in Oregon where i'm from!!

The Albuquerque, NM PBR event is the Ty Murray invitational. It's always SO interesting to see what Native Americans he calls up, and invites to the event. This year it was Stock Contractor Kaley Mae Hook and bull rider Spud Jones! I have met Kaley Mae Hook and followed her bucking bulls for awhile now so it was pretty to see her bull " boots " shine bright at the Ty Murray Invitational!! I have heard of Spud Jones at a few bull ridings but I have actually never seen him ride till the PBR event this past weekend. I'm always interested in learning about new upcoming bull riders so when it came time to Spud's ride I was all eyes and ears. I hope Spud continues his bull riding career on the PBR tour, and I hope I get another Chance to see Spud ride bulls this summer down the rodeo trail. 

Event Winner -- >> Mason Lowe
