Yesterday was a big day for STINGRAY, but I don’t think she realized it. I was nervous and excited at the same time. Before the first steer, I was really nervou...s. She is in great shape, but hadn’t been roped on since last summer. It didn’t matter one bit. She has the heart of a champion, no matter what you ask her to do. She competed with Cory at one of the largest, toughest open team ropings of the whole year and worked every steer she saw! #BFI
This was potentially going to be the first summer she would stay home in over ten years. She is getting older, but again she doesn’t know it. She may not be as fast as she once was, but she is not ready to be retired and I’m not ready to leave her behind. I can't explain how much she means to me and getting to watch her perform, as the coolest little heel horse I know, was awesome.
