A new photo spread of mine has been published. The photos are from the final round of rodeo action at the 100th Greeley Stampede. https://www.thefencepost.com/news/championship-rodeo-at-100th-greeley-stampede-is-a-winner/

South Dakota competitor Chance Schott was the only bull rider to make a successful ride in Greeley Stampede’s 2022 short go (June 30). As a result, his electric 88-point ride aboard Beutler and Son Rodeo Company’s “Overpass” earned him $5,000 for the short go and another $3,630 for winning the average at the 100th Greeley Stampede.

So you think your job is rough? Try having your job description include staying as close as possible to charging bulls inside an enclosed arena while trying not to be hit or trampled. That would be the American Bull Fighting competition held at the 100th Greeley Stampede in Greeley, CO (July 02, 2022). My photo spread of the event is now published online. Cowboy mounted shooters were also on hand for a contest of their own. https://www.thefencepost.com/news/dodge-bull-at-the-100th-greeley-stampede/

Sometimes the smart bulls just figure out how to hit bull fighters. Zigging when he should have zagged, Chris Monroe got caught by the head and horns of a bull during first round action of the 2022 American Bull Fighting competition on July 02 and did not qualify to advance.

I was happy my job description that day was taking photos!

Killer Ride Sets A New Arena Record!

Saddle bronc cowboy Hardy Braden rode one of the most famous bucking horses in the business — Killer Bee — for a new arena record at the 100th Greeley Stampede in Greeley, CO during the final round of rodeo action on June 30, 2022. The 89.50-point score bested the previous record of 88 points set by Wade Sundell in 2018 and tied by Ryder Wright in 2019. “It is quite something, actually,” said Braden when told his score set a new record. “I am kind of at a loss.  It was the 100th anniversary, what better way to do that then get an arena record and win the 100th.”

Oklahoma saddle bronc rider Hardy Braden drew what was announced as “the most famous bucking horse of all time” in Killer Bee from Beutler and Son Rodeo Company, and the duo put on a big show that culminated in an arena record 89.50 points and the overall title at the 100th Greeley Stampede (June 30, 2022).

Pretty cool moment to see in person and nice to be able to talk to the humble cowboy about it. A new article about it will be published soon in The Fence Post magazine with more conversation and more photos.

Happy 4th of July

Independence Day. 4th of July. The American holiday that celebrates independence, freedom and liberty evokes different passions for people. For me, it always stirs a deep emotional response as I consider all the sacrifices made throughout the USA’s history by people believing their lives were not such a steep price to pay for future generations to live in a country free of tyranny and totalitarianism. We seem to be on the precipice of losing our freedoms to an ever encroaching government in this day and age, but those sacrifices made in the past will be honored by me and my family in the present. God bless you and God save America. And Happy 4th of July!

National Western Stock Show fans and fans of its rodeo love their country and are proud to honor and respect the American flag. The NWSS rodeo crew goes out of its way to create memorable ceremonies like this rendition of the National Anthem with the lights off and the spotlight on before the start of action during the final weekend of the 2022 NWSS.

Texas barrel racer Shelley Morgan leaned close in to the third barrel on her way to stopping the timers in 16.39 seconds, which was the fastest time of the June 30th championship round at the 100th Greeley Stampede Rodeo. The time also earned Morgan the 2022 Greeley Stampede buckle with the best time on three head of 49.39 seconds.

History, Tradition, Family

My latest article with photos has been published on The Fence Post magazine’s website. I traveled last Sunday (June 26) to the 100th Greeley Stampede in Greeley, CO to photograph and talk to participants and visitors who were taking part in and having fun at the historic venue. The story focuses on the family-friendly environment and tradition of the Greeley Stampede. Click on the link or image to get to the article. https://www.thefencepost.com/news/100th-greeley-stampede-embraces-history-tradition-and-family/

The Edgerly family from Greeley had a blast participating in a sack race (mom won this one!) and other throw-back family activities on offer during the Sunday Family Funday on June 26th at the 2022 Greeley Stampede. The coffee sacks were a nod to the original events offering free coffee to the regions potato farmers to help entice them to attend back in the 1920’s.

A new short article of mine (with excellent help from Bonnie Wheatley) has been published on the Barrel Racing Magazine website. Oklahoma barrel racer Paige Jones and 10-year-old Famous Hayday stopped the timers in a fast 16.73-seconds on Sunday afternoon at 2022’s 100th Greeley Stampede rodeo. That time put her more than a half-second ahead of the rest of the field, so far, in the first round of barrel racing. Click the image or link that follows to go to the article on BarrelRacingMagazine.com

Oklahoma barrel racer (and 2020 WPRA Rookie of the Year) Paige Jones and 10-year-old Famous Hayday tear into the first turn on their way to setting the pace at the 100th Greeley Stampede with a time of 16.73 seconds on Sunday afternoon (June 26, 2022).

Happy Father’s Day!

Inspired by an upcoming Father’s Day back in 2004, I wrote a cowboy poem to honor the impact and importance of dads in the lives of their children. It is titled, “I Knew Him” and was published back in 2004 in a magazine and on a cowboy poetry website. I wanted to share it again for Father’s Day, this year.

Empty saddle image by Lincoln Rogers, 2022. To honor and remember all the dads who are not with us today. I was blessed to be your son, Dad.

I Knew Him

By Lincoln Rogers – May, 2004

I wish I could tell ya I always was good,

Seldom in trouble and did what I should.

But that would be lyin’ as far as I know,

Like a claim of a win when I really got show.

——-

I remember a Cowboy who took me under his wing,

He spoke on many a topic of what life would bring.

His voice deep and rough always told what was true,

It was like bein’ in church amid the dawn and the dew.

——-

He imparted sage lessons about cow and horse,

And taught me of God to keep me on course.

He talked some of family, of kin and of pride,

While we sorted out cattle and rode side by side.

On the subject of women, he’d grow quiet and smile,

Said whatever men knew mostly missed by a mile.

——-

Though the brim of his hat gave him shade from the skies,

I saw his tan, creviced skin showing age ‘round his eyes.

Soon I noticed him hunching against the cold of the weather,

And the strength started fading from hands of hard leather.

——-

The day he stopped riding was the week he went Home,

But he’ll always be with me wherever I roam.

I’ll never forget him, of every memory I’m glad,

You may not know him… but I called him Dad.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. May you be the man God called you to be, using the strength He provides on a daily basis.
