100th Anniversary Stampede!!
Pictured Above - Roland and our wonderful student Coraline, from France, holding SS Annie's Oakley.
We were fortunate to be part of the 100th Anniversary for Calgary Stampede!
We headed off with Little Britches and Annie's Oakley to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!
The Calgary Stampede!
Heading to stampede is always alot of work and the help of Roland and Coraline was greatly appreciated for this, our 12th year there. We started in 2000!!
This was Britches first time off the ranch and I cannot believe how amazing she was. The crowds are overwhelming even for the seasoned horses and after a bit she settled right in. Wasn't impressed with her bath, but neither is Oakley!
Coraline poses with the horses jut before we enter the chaos.
We get to the stalls early the first day so Britches can get oriented.
At first she is certain she should join Oakley who is in a stall just around the corner. But Coraline spends some time with her and she accepts her duties!
Now that we have more people to man the booth we are able to get out and see some of the grounds.
This guy is a real person bronzed up to look like a statue. Amazing how you never see them blink.
Mom helped out BIG time in the booth. She knows most of the speach by heart now. Her third time joining me here.
Oakley takes her turn in the stall.
Please pet me more! Then get me outta here!
Oakley has patience, but she knows where the exit is.
