I’ve Been Everywhere, Man.

That seems to be my theme song these past couple months! In January and February, I attended Denver, Fort Worth – twice –, and San Angelo. Denver was, as always, so much fun. The weather was wonderfully mild – which anyone who has been to the National Western can agree is a blessing! I attended the Carload and Pen show for the first time, and it was a great experience. I attended the Fort Worth Junior Shows the next weekend. The last weekend in January, I had to fight a blizzard to get the Fort Worth Open Show! Biting my nails waiting for the roads to open was not fun, but the weekend most definitely was. Being from Texas, I’d like to brag and say the hospitality there was the very best – but the truth is, every show I have been to has been amazing. After those hectic weeks, were two weeks of catching up on homework and then I went to San Angelo. I love this stock show because of the close-knit atmosphere that the Hereford breeders have. Next up on the calendar is Houston; try to keep warm and have a wonderful beginning of spring!
