My latest article in The Fence Post magazine is about the recent Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo and their hard work in putting on a pair of rodeo performances on Saturday alone. For a town with a population of just 1,400, it is an amazing feat to see them host about 5,000 people in the stands and on the grounds over those two Saturday performances.
A LOT more photos should be in the print edition coming out this coming Monday (June 24, 2019).

Probably not what Colorado bareback cowboy Casey Colletti did this past Saturday (April 13, 2019)…
Casey Colletti wasn’t in the lineup of competitors for the 2019 Rodeo All Star event held in Denver, CO over the weekend of April 12-13, 2019. But when one of the contestants couldn’t make it, rodeo organizers called Colletti at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday to see if he could drive up from Pueblo, CO and ride some bucking broncs against some of the best competition in the sport.
Forget chores and spring cleaning, Colletti grabbed his gear and arrived in time for the 2:30 p.m. afternoon rodeo. Not content to just show up, Colletti won the afternoon round with an 84-point ride to advance to Saturday night’s championship round where, you guessed it, he rode another bronc for 87 points to win the Saturday night round and move into a head to head match-up against three-time PRCA world champion Will Lowe for a chance at an extra $5,000.00 and the 2019 Rodeo All Star title.
“I’m just happy to be here,” said a smiling Colletti after winning the round on Saturday night and getting ready to ride against Will Lowe for the title. “Being able to go against three time world champion Will Lowe in a shoot out, head to head format. This is the kind of stuff we live for, you know what I mean?”
In the head to head round, Colletti beat his earlier scores with an 88-point ride on his third bucking bronc of the day. That’s right. Not one bucking bronc, which would send most people crawling to their chiropractor, but three bucking broncs in a single afternoon and evening. Even though his impressive 88 points in the head to head round fell short of Will Lowe’s stunning 90-point ride for the Rodeo All Star title, it is safe to say Colletti’s planned day off was a bit more productive than any of ours.
I was blessed to be able to sit down and have a long conversation with world famous Australian horseman Dan James, while he was at the 2019 National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO (January 2019). The Fence Post magazine published the Q&A back at the end of January. Dan James is not only an amazing horseman, he is also a great person.
I hope you enjoy reading some of the conversation as much as I enjoyed having it with Dan James.

My story (and some photos) about Dr. Temple Grandin’s speech at the 2019 Rocky Mountain Horse Expo is now online at The Fence Post’s website. The speech was a good one and I was blessed to be able to sit down afterward and have a one-on-one interview with the world-renowned speaker, author, and Colorado State University professor. Since the 1970’s, her positive impact on the beef industry has been massive and her advocacy for those with autism (like herself) is just as meaningful.
I have put together several articles for different magazines about Dr. Grandin’s speech at the horse expo, and this one focused more on her thoughts and opinions regarding horses. An article focusing more on her thoughts and opinions regarding cattle and the cattle industry will be published soon by Working Ranch Magazine.
I hope you enjoy this article in The Fence Post. God bless.

Sitting here watching the thermometer hover at zero degrees today brought to mind the toughness and spirit of the cowboys who used to drive the massive cattle herds to market rain, sleet or snow in the old west. Then I caught myself, because contemporary cowboys are still working the massive cattle herds no matter what mother nature throws their way.
This cowboy poem of mine is dedicated to cowboys past and present and was published in 2005 by the good folks at CowboyPoetry.com.
Dedicated to the working cowboy – past and present
The western trails bore Longhorn,
Over oceans of grass Plain,
And Cowboys rode like captains,
Through the waves of sun and rain.
4-inch brims and rowelled spurs,
Along with chaps and Latigo,
Matching leather on face and saddle,
Of a seasoned, working pro.
Some say the era of the Cowboy,
Is but a faded dream at best,
But that independent spirit,
Remains the heartbeat of the West.
Miles removed from concrete jungles,
On open vistas kissed by sun,
Modern Cowboys ride the range,
Just like those days the West was won.
So word and song is raised in honor,
To everyone who bears the flame;
Who stokes the fire of admiration,
For a life no one will tame.

“Wait… it’s a Monday set aside for ME?”
Yep… it’s Cyber Monday today. Now, whether that means it’s a Monday strictly set aside for Cyborgs (or maybe just the Borg – does the “collective” even celebrate Christmas?) or if it means it’s the starter’s pistol, so to speak, for everyone to start their online frenzy of shopping, I’ll let you decide.
Me? It gives me another chance to wish everyone a Merry Christmas in a cowboy kind of way. So, while you are straining your eyes staring at computer monitors for the best deal EVER or if you are running a diagnostic sub-routine on your implanted cyborg systems, take some time today to relax, breathe and remember to connect with the what this season is really all about. If I recall right, a crowd of angels shouted it on the very first Christmas.
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:14
Have a great day and don’t let your horse come home without ya!
