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.
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/
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!
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!
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.
The people and events of history are fascinating and good museums tie them together in interesting ways. The Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum is one of those interesting places and, if you ever visit, you will enjoy learning about Cheyenne Frontier Days and its colorful and cowboy past.
I had the chance to visit the museum during the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days (the 125th CFD) and talk to the museum’s Executive Director, Morgan Marks. My article and photography that came out of that visit is now out on the website of The Fence Post magazine.
My article with photography about the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days championship round of rodeo is now published on The Fence Post magazine’s website! I hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoyed photographing it and getting the interviews from the contestants.
