Live From the Blogville Rodeo

Howdy! It's "Abby Oakley" Cowgirl extradonaire and crack cowboy poopy pellet gun markswoman.
This is my target. (OK, it's Mom's from the LEO range).  But I managed to knock over a glass of iced tea with my tail!
 BE SURE TO SEE THE DOODS, MURPHY AND STANLEY FOR THE FULL EVENT SCHEDULE! 



There's the events and the sponsors listed on the poster if they are not linked  here.  I'm busy at the dance and Mom has to go back on duty, so we may not have everyone.  But I know, we will all, at some time tonight, take off our hats and say a little thank you with a toast to lovely Sasha at the Bridge.  We miss her dearly, and not simply for her wonderful catering at these events, but for her lovely heart and generous spirit.

We miss you Sasha.


For now, there's so much going on.  First over the Cattle Stampede:


Squirrel Roping!


Here's our brand.  Pie R Squared.  What other kind of brand could the geek cow have?

In addition to the cattle stampede, squirrel roping, pork chopping (wait - that's dinner) there's  all kind of things going on which I'll add here as they happen.

There's some wonderful cowboy poetry at:


There's Bull Riding happening at:


There's barrel racing going on over at:



But first my handsome date for the square dance - Frankie Furter (when asked for the best date for a cowboy square dance I was told to "Get a long little doggie").
Doesn't he look handsome in his Western gear with his mighty horse "Trusty Steve".

Dori's Backyard is hosting the Square Dance.  It's starting right now!  Stop in at:





Thank you Dory and family  for the wonderful photos!

All the bronco busting is posted  on Frankie and Ernie's blog so click here to see the great riding skills of my square dance partner and all of our friends here in Blogville.
