The Story for those with Heart – - – Yeh it’s a story that never changes. Spring eternal spring when a young person’s fancy turns to my first rodeo. Up in ranching country come springtime and everybody and everything turns frisky! We get up a little earlier. Go to bed a little earlier – or later as the case may be and we start laying our plans for rodeo season – especially the youngins as the old timers refer to them ~:0)
Springtime in ranch country finds young cowpokes out stretching their lariats while the cowgirls are stretching out new jeans. Tack is prepared. Horses curried. Cattle rustled – Ha! Generally it’s a time of new calves, colts and a quickening of life in general around the place. And then there’s RODEO!
Yeh rodeo – when cowboys and cowgirls and ranch folk in general gather at arenas across the region to catch up on old stories, old friends and new loves. There are quarter-horse barrel racing, cattle roping, livestock shows all with a payoff of some kind whether cash or scholarships – it’s straight up FUN ~:0)
As we here at VivaChas! strolled the grounds at some of these wild and wooly events we heard the same phrase repeated by fresh faces over and again – It’s My First Rodeo. Now the young pokes might be too proud to admit their first time – knowing how young men are – but the glowing, golden girls of the rodeo had no qualms in sharing that secret pleasure of new things.
See what U miss by being couched by video-games and reality-shows. Ur missing life. Ur missing adventure and Ur missing love shared by the finest bunch of folks U might ever meet – get out there! Don’t be Proud – – Go to Ur First Rodeo ~:0) VivaChas!
