Little Ropers

My two little B's have decided they want to practice their roping. I have been trying to get them to practice for a couple of years, but all of a sudden, this is the year. Brady got them all lined out one evening, and then one of the nicer days we had, when it was almost a little bit hot, they decided to practice. There's just nothing like a girl in her bikini with a boot on her leg swinging a rope... So adorable! Britt gets a little mad and frustrated, but he's getting very close to learning how to throw his loop. Brailey is a tiny bit ahead of him in her skills, and she actually caught the head twice in a row! She has a really good loop, so it will be fun to see how she progresses. Before we know it, they will be roping off a horse... Better that than riding bulls, right? Brailey has always said she wants to be a breakaway roper and a barrel racer - this summer put a crink in our plans for that, but there's always tomorrow. And Britt wants to be a bull dogger (steer wrestler) or a rodeo clown. Yah - that made me laugh, too. But at least if he becomes a rodeo clown, he'll always be guaranteed a check! In the meantime, let's just hope they keep up with the roping.
