My Name on a Building!

Okay – maybe my name won’t be front and center…

I was blessed to be able to schedule another editorial photography and interview appointment yesterday (September 10, 2021) in order to do a second story on the massive construction project on the grounds of the National Western Stock Show.

Lincoln Rogers after signing a beam at the CSU Spur construction site – September 10, 2021. Didn’t realize I was rocking the hard hat at such a jaunty angle until after the pic. 🙂

This story will focus on Colorado State University’s (CSU) presence and partnership on the site and its agricultural implications for the state of Colorado. But I also got to sign one of the construction beams that will be placed near the top of CSU’s “Hydro” building, which should be completed sometime in 2022. So I guess my name will be IN the building, rather than on it.

Pretty cool bonus after the tour, though! Now the Hydro building will always produce a smile whenever I see it in the future as that is as close as I will ever get to having my name on a building.

Procrastination Over…

Tags

At least most of it!

Over 15 years ago, I put in a lot of work and hours into custom building my own website. Over the years, more hours were spent trying to keep it updated. But then it started to feel… dated.

But I procrastinated in redesigning my website because I knew it would take many more hours to get it set up the way I wanted. And I procrastinated. AND procrastinated!

Well… procrastination over. I finally bit the bullet, so to speak, and did a redesign and rebuild of my www.lincolnrogers.com website. It still needs some tweaking and a LOT more photography needs to be added — I am planning on setting up a number of galleries of my past work — but the redesign makes it more current and much more simplified.

Give it a visit, would you? I would love to have you drop by.

Bulls, Barrels, Mutton & Mini’s raise money in Kiowa, CO for the state of Colorado’s fallen first responders and those who have been critically injured

You can read about it in my article with photos on the website of The Fence Post magazine.

https://www.thefencepost.com/news/bulls-barrels-mutton-and-minis-raise-money-in-kiowa-colo/

The 5th annual Responder Relief Rodeo in Kiowa, CO raised money for the Responder Relief Foundation and its mission to provide financial support to families of fallen first responders, as well as provide funds to first responders who have been critically injured.
With eleven stock contractors supplying bulls, there were “forty-some-odd” bulls that were bucked in the 5th annual Responder Relief Rodeo in Kiowa, CO, a rodeo that raises money for the Responder Relief Foundation and its mission to provide financial support to families of fallen first responders, as well as provide funds to first responders who have been critically injured. The popular bull riding, barrel racing, mutton busting, and mini bull riding event drew its largest crowd of 800-1,000 on Saturday night (August 21, 2021), prompting organizers to consider expanding the event to two days in the future.

Bull Fighter Gains a New Perspective…

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

There are bad days at the office and then there are BAD days at the office.

A bull fighter in the 2021 Responder Relief Rodeo in Kiowa, CO (August 21, 2021) had one of those days where a beast with a bad attitude decided to help him look at life from a fresh perspective.

A bull fighter found himself gaining a new perspective after being tossed in the air by one of the bulls in the 2021 Responder Relief Rodeo in Kiowa, CO on August 21, 2021. The rodeo benefits the Responder Relief Foundation, which contributes to the families of fallen first responders and helps the critically injured.

They said he was “very sore” the next day, but that he is all right. I bet he’ll tell you looking at life from a new perspective ain’t always what it’s cracked up to be…

2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days Victory Photos

The Fence Post magazine has previously published my article and photo spread images from the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days championship round of rodeo. One thing about Cheyenne is that there are always more photos to be shared from there than can fit into magazines!

As a result, I thought I would post on this blog 10 victory images from the 10 categories that win titles and buckles at the historic Wyoming rodeo. Due to space limitations, most of these images did not make the pages of the magazine, so I wanted them to see life here in this blog.

I hope you enjoy.

3-time PRCA world champion bareback cowboy Tim O’Connell rode MLW’s Irish Eyes to an 89-point score and a Cheyenne Frontier Days title during Sunday’s championship round on August 01, 2021. The win was O’Connell’s second Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo title.
Sawyer Gilbert of Buffalo, SD (middle) poses in front of the big crowd with her championship saddle after winning the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo Women’s Breakaway Roping event. 2021 was the just the second year of CFD hosting the event and the first year they added even money with the rest of the rodeo events.
7-time NFR qualifier Marty Yates went first in the Tie Down Roping and posted the championship round’s fastest time of 10.3 seconds to win the 2021 CFD buckle on August 01, 2021.
Utah cowboy Stetson Wright rode a high kicking Feather Fluffer for 90 points in Sunday’s (August 01) championship round for the saddle bronc title at the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo.
Heeler Jade Corkill was in process of throwing his loop for a successful run of 10.2 seconds to help win a Cheyenne title with Clay Smith. The win was Corkill’s third Cheyenne buckle (’09, ’13, ’21).
Montana Steer Wrestler Newt Novich tied a Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo arena record with this 5.1-second time in Sunday’s (August 01) championship round to win the buckle and a big check.
25-year-old Kansas Steer Roper Cole Patterson was all smiles when he was congratulated and interviewed inside the stadium arena after winning the title at the 2021 CFD.
3-time world champion barrel racer Hailey Kinsel and her popular mare “Sister” nailed down the fastest time of 17.30 seconds in the short go to win the CFD buckle on Sunday August 01, 2021.
Australian bull rider Ky Hamilton rode a leaping bull to earn the best score of the entire Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo and take home the 2021 CFD title.
Utah cowboy Stetson Wright acknowledges the applause of the big crowd as he was awarded the All Around title at the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo in Cheyenne, WY. Wright won the title by earning money in both the saddle bronc and bull riding competitions (placing 1st in saddle bronc and 4th in bull riding) to become the only roughstock cowboy to earn consecutive CFD All Around buckles since the legendary Jim Shoulders did it way back in 1963-1964.

Record Setting Brothers!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

One of the great things about county fairs are all the young people raising and showing animals. Raising and showing animal projects teaches and imparts respect, accountability, work ethic, and yes… humility (farm animals will always end up teaching everyone humility at one time or another).

A pair of brothers at the 2021 Douglas County Fair in Castle Rock, CO learned all those lessons and more. Job Knight (15-years-old) and Silas McQuate (9-years-old) also learned how to be respectful and gracious while sweeping the top Market Beef Steer awards at the fair and setting auction records in the fair’s 2021 Junior Livestock Sale.

I was able to get a chance to talk with Job and Silas, along with their parents Seth and Jenn, on the last day of the Douglas County Fair. You can find my article and photos about their accomplishments on The Fence Post magazine’s website: https://www.thefencepost.com/news/oh-brothers/

Big brother Job Knight and Diesel (left), along with younger brother Silas McQuate and Superman (right), made a family clean sweep of the Grand Champion Market Beef Steer and Reserve Grand Champion Market Beef Steer at the 2021 Douglas County Fair in Castle Rock, CO. On top of those awards, Job picked up the Reserve Sr. Showmanship award and Silas won the Jr. Showmanship Champion buckle. As if that wasn’t enough, the Larkspur, CO brothers both set auction records for the winning bids on their Maine Angus cross steers in Douglas County Fair’s 2021 Junior Livestock Sale.

2021 Douglas County Fair in Photos

The 2021 Douglas County Fair in Castle Rock, CO set records in the Junior Livestock Sale and in attendance for its rodeo performances. The fairgrounds were packed during the weekends and had plenty of people showing up during the week, as well.

The Fence Post magazine has published a photo spread of my images taken during the days I visited the fair in 2021. I hope you enjoy!

As evidenced by the crush of hungry people in the food vendor area leading away towards the carnival section of the fairgrounds, the 2021 Douglas County Fair looked like it was the place to be over the last weekend of the Castle Rock, CO event.

County Fair Cuisine!!!

Admit it. You don’t go to a County Fair to eat healthy. But I was wondering…

Is there such a thing as a County Fair WITHOUT a grill serving up huge Turkey Legs?

A pile of turkey legs cooking up on a grill at the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo in Castle Rock, CO.

Can’t think of one? I didn’t think so!

I was busy at the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days in 2021. Although I could only attend for two days, I made the most of them, being able to put together stories about the CFD Museum, the chuckwagon cooking, and the championship round of rodeo.

The Fence Post magazine’s website has published more photography of mine from Cheyenne. Follow the link and take a look!

Wright become the only roughstock cowboy to earn consecutive CFD All Around buckles since the legendary Jim Shoulders did it way back in 1963-1964.

Photographing and covering the Cheyenne Frontier Days is a great experience. I hope you enjoy the slice of the historic event that my images provide.

For the Love of Chuckwagons

Tags

Good vittles! We all love good food, right? And authentic chuckwagon cooking is some of the best.

My article and photos about some of the chuckwagon participants at the 125th Cheyenne Frontier Days is published now on The Fence Post magazine’s website. Chuckwagon crews are great people, and great to talk with, as well.

https://www.thefencepost.com/news/for-the-love-of-chuckwagons/

Chuckwagon Cookoff participants are also judged on the authenticity and period correctness of their wagons. As a result, the Cheyenne Frontier Days competition brings a great assortment of authentic wagons to the event, including this Newton Wagon Works chuckwagon brought by Sam Howell of Odessa, Texas.

As I say in my article, “Whether it is rodeo or even authentic cowboy cooking, the “Daddy of ‘Em All” makes people love coming to Cheyenne Frontier Days.”
