A big thank-you to the Ouray County Rodeo Association. Thirteen riders on horseback leading 13 riderless horses came into the arena and the name, a short story about each soldier who died for all of us in Afghanistan in the last episode with the Taliban. Such a personal and beautiful tribute to these soldiers! So much patriotism in the arena and bleachers. It was a tearful experience.

One thing about rodeos you are going to encounter prayer, flags,moments of silence and so much respect for God and country. I am thankful we lived and raised our kids that way. Five generations have been on the Weber Ranch and has it been in the family 70 years.
