Don't Forget

Tonight I had a great reminder that I wanted to share with all moms especially rodeo moms.  We get so wrapped up in the day to day tasks that we forget a very important part of Life and Motherhood. Being a rodeo mom we have the responsibility of making sure that our kids are practicing and we forget to have FUN!  So tonight I threw a little fun into our practice.   

First, we had family and friends with us this always helps. Kids feed off of each other and without realizing they help each other reach new levels.  

Second,  I took some much needed one on one time.   I focused on my  younger son.   He loves to run barrels and poles but often his practice time gets shortened or skipped all together for roping.  

Third, we had a little friendly competition in the practice pen.  The boys were all flanking and tying calves.   When I say boys this is dads included.  They were timing each other and betting drinks.  My oldest son was struggling so I went over and joined the competition.  I bet him I could flank and tie a calf.  To everyone's amazement I did it.  This did two things. Gave me bragging rights and made my son try even harder.  It is not cool to get beat in front of your peers by your mom.    

Probably the most important thing is we were having fun.  There was no yelling and fit throwing.  I gained a new perspective which will aid me in coaching my kids in the practice pen.  We all know how important practice is to being number one but do we know how important fun practice is for having confident, happy, successful little cowboys and cowgirls.

Worth Quoting

Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.

She climbed high in that saddle

Taught her a lesson that she learned
Maybe a little too well

Cowgirls don't cry
Ride, baby, ride
lessons of life are going to show you in time
soon enough your gonna know why
it's gonna hurt every now and then
if you fall get back on again

How to Remove Red Clay Stains
Remove dried clay with a dull knife or a spoon (or go outside and give the garment a shake). Apply liquid dish soap to the stain and let it sit overnight. Machine wash. If any stain remains, apply a color-safe bleach directly on the fabric or flush with rubbing alcohol, then machine wash again.

Blog Update

Wow!  Where did the last couple of weeks go?  Don't you have to ask yourself this sometimes?

Well it started May 21st with a 3-day Little Britches Rodeo.  Then came graduation on Wednesday.  Followed by traveling to a Joe Beaver Tie Down School on Friday.  Then we had nieces and nephews for the first week of summer.  Followed by getting ready for State High School Rodeo Finals.  Whew!

The Joe Beaver Tie Down School was amazing!  I would highly recommend it to anyone.  Those boys worked hard for 2 solid days but they all came away with things that will definitely improve their times.  Brent not only got to meet his idol but he got to rope in front of him and have him help him personally with his roping, flanking and tieing.  Honestly, I learned more in this school than any other rope school that I have went with my kids.  

Brent went from roping 17-18 to his final time of 12 seconds.  He has been so motivated since we got home.  He is doing something to practice tie down for over an hour every day.  To find the school closest to you, go to

Anyway, although we are in full time rodeo season, we are getting back on track with Rodeo Moms Club.  Look for a lot of new events coming up and another contest!

By Teresa Fackrell
"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill

Although I work full time and have 2 kids to keep up with, I really enjoy contributing. I am not the type of person who can sit at a rodeo and just watch. So in addition to my full time responsibilities, I volunteer as much as possible. 

I teach 4H every Thursday, secretary for Central Utah Little Britches, jackpot secretary for Central Utah Junior Rodeo and put together the program for the Juab High School Rodeo team. The best part is knowing that what I do benefits the kids who are working, riding, roping and practicing hard each day.

For some moms, they may feel a little out of place at a rodeo. They may not know how to help. When I first started volunteering, I really had no idea how to do a rodeo payback. Someone knew that I worked with computers and was good at math. So they said can you help do our jackpots. Of course I said yes. But I still had to learn how to calculate the number of kids, the entry fee and the percentage to pay back. Now, I organize an entire rodeo.

Junior rodeos especially are made up solely of volunteers. The people timing, helping push cows, opening and closing the gate, and being the secretary are doing it to help the kids.

If you are at a junior rodeo and want to, just ask what you can do. Normally, all committees would really appreciate any additional help. Even if you don’t know what to do ask and someone will teach you. It really is a learn as you go thing. Even if you just help open and close a gate that frees someone else up to move cows or set up the barrels. So don’t be afraid to jump in. It will be greatly appreciated.

I also want to send many thanks to the volunteers. I am always amazed at the amount of time and dedication that people volunteer for junior rodeos. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

Competition and Nutrition

by Teresa Fackrell

Most of the time we may not see our kids as the athletes that they are.  We might make sure that our horses have the best nutrition including supplements but do we do the same for our kids.  Several of you may answer yes.  But I have been to too many rodeos to see the snacks and foods most parents are handing their kids.

Most parents are handing their kids sodas, crackers, cookies, candy, rodeo burgers, nachos and a myriad of other junk.  These are all empty calories and doing nothing to build the body of an athlete.  They may provide a temporary energy boost but there is always the sugar crash.  On top of the overload of sugar in soda, it also reduces your endurance and strips vital nutrients from your body.  Crackers, cookies and chips do not provide any of the essential nutrients your body needs to get stronger.  

In order to be in top athletic shape our kids needs to eat like an athlete.  It is important that they get the proper nutrition to focus and perform.  They need lean protein for sustainable energy and to build muscle.  They need fruits and vegetables to get all of the essential nutrients. Adding in nuts, seeds or the good oils like olive, coconut and flaxseed will give them the Omega 3s they need for their brain to be functioning optimally.  

Yes it will take some time to plan meals, cook the right things and pack nutritious food.  It is time well spent when your kids bodies are performing well.  Plan to give them what they need and not what they want. 

You can follow a few simple rules to make sure they are getting the nutrition they need.
1) Make sure they are getting 3 servings of lean protein everyday.  Eggs, whey protein shakes, turkey, chicken or beef are good choices.  Lean means not breaded or deep fried.
2) Try to get in 4-6 servings of fruits and vegetables.  Add a banana to a breakfast smoothie, make a veggie omelette, replace the potato chips with some raw veggies as a snack, give them an apple instead of a cookie,  or choose a salad instead of a potato for dinner.  A good rule for veggies and fruits is to eat a rainbow everyday.  The different colors provide different nutrients.
3) Add in some healthy oils.  Get a bag of raw nuts for traveling or make your own trail mix without all the sugar.  Cook with healthy oils like olive or coconut.  Make your own salad dressing with olive oil and spices.  

It may take some planning and work but your kids are worth it!

Flag Racing Part One

by Lisa Woodland

Little Britches has an event for Little Wranglers and Jr Boys called, Flag Racing. I first did this event in 4-H and then in some riding clubs. It is a gymkhana event that has a few variations according to the association. I have to say when I watch my little boys have a good run this is one of my favorite events.
The course consists of two barrels set on opposite sides of the arena approximately 100 feet from the starting line. On top of the left-hand barrel is a bucket of oats, on the top of the right-hand barrel is a bucket of oats with a flag sticking in it.
The contestant is given a flag at the gate. The object is to ride around the pattern as quickly as possible, STICKIN╩╝ the flag carried in the left hand bucket and PICKIN╩╝ the flag in the the right-hand bucket and carrying it back across the start/finish line.

A contestant is disqualified for knocking over the barrel or bucket, failing to get the first flag in the bucket, failing to retrieve the second flag, for circling the barrel, going on the wrong side of the barrel, using the flag as a whip, or if either flag is dropped. Carrying the flag anywhere but in the hand results in a five second penalty.

Getting It All Done

by Teresa Fackrell

As you look at each week, you may feel overwhelmed with so many things to get done. As a rodeo mom, you have daily mom duties but you also have to make sure that your chores are done, your kids get to school, you go to work and you get your kids to practice. This week for example, not only do I have to work a full time work schedule but we have a rodeo to put on for High School Rodeo that is Friday and Saturday.

In addition to working, I need to get the all the laundry done, go to the grocery store, pack the trailer and get my kids to practice at least 3 days this week. Plus finish the program for the rodeo and enter all the jackpot information.  Here are some tips to help get you through it and get motivated to do more.

First, congratulate yourself. Women are amazing. We are great at multi-tasking. Although I may be stressed about it today, by Friday I know I will have everything ready and we will have a great weekend at the rodeo.

Second, can I mention lists? The best way to get things done is to know exactly what you need to do. So today before I leave work, I will make a list of all the things that need to happen by Friday. Also when, I clean and go through the trailer we are staying in, I will make a list of things that need to be bought before we go. You should also prioritize the list. There is always too much to do. So make sure you only do what is important. There is a great sense of accomplishment when you get mark things off of the list.

Third, put your priorities on a schedule. Most people waste a lot of time because things are not scheduled. If you break your tasks up into manageable pieces of time, you will get a lot more done. Also, you need to learn to set time limits for things. For example, tonight we only have 2 hours for practice because we need to get home and start cleaning the trailer. So only practice for 2 hours. It is way too easy to let things go beyond schedule but if you stick to it, I promise you will get more done. 

Fourth, reward yourself. One of my favorite rewards is to do absolutely nothing Sunday morning when we get home from a rodeo. Really. I make some coffee in the morning, grab a blanket and watch HGTV for a couple of hours. Yes I don’t watch anything horse related. Or I pop in a movie usually a chick flick. Then when I have chilled for a little while I will get my children back to work, clean the trailer and deal with everything else left over after a rodeo weekend.

Breakaway Roping - Picture of the Week

This is a great picture of getting the rope around the calf's neck.  However sometimes when I look at rodeo pictures, I really wonder how horses move like that.  We catch them at the weirdest angles. 

Monday, April 26, 2010

Get Your Rope Going

Although this is a breakaway tip that we have talked about before it is extremely important.  The best way to have the fastest time in breakaway roping is to get your rope going quickly.  You should be swinging as soon as you nod.  There is no other way to be in the 2 to 3 second times without swinging fast.  

As you can see in the picture, the calf is not even completely out of the chute but his rope is already in full swing.  
Even when you are practicing, start your swing in the box.  You may even want to take a few runs where you don't rope but just get that start right.  So let the calf out focusing on getting your swing started.  Sometimes you need to just work on one thing at a time.

Getting Ready - Picture of the Week

Vet Box for Tack Room and Trailer

A good rule of thumb for a rodeo mom is to have a vet kit on hand. You never know when you are going to have to clean, dress and administer a little helping hand to your best ride or someone else in the rodeo family.

First of all a prayer in your heart that you will be able to fix what’s broken – that’s instinct really for all mom's I know. These are items that I have on hand for all types of mom – vet work!

1. Tool box or box to hold supplies and equipment
2. Vet Wrap – doubles for Halloween costumes or compression
3. Gauze – good to put with vet wrap or bandages
4. Diapers – these are great to bandage with, soak up fluid or blood
5. Beta dine – great for hoof abscess, cleaning wounds
6. Bantamine – muscle relaxer, must have a scribe to get, critical if your horse starts to colic
7. Ace – depressant – must have a scribe to get
8. Syringe – good for water fights on a hot day or administering medicine
9. Needles
10. Penicillin – cure all
11. Furazene or ointment to help with infections I really like Neosporin
Which is a human product but works great.
12. Hoof Freeze – made by Hawthorne Product
13. Ice O Gel or FreezeEx – good for muscle strains or wind puffs
14. Leg wraps – good for wrapping muscle strains 

15. Quilted wraps- good for heat wraps
16. Equine boot – lost shoes – hoof abscess
17. Ice packs - strained muscles
18. Ice boot – strained muscles
19. Scissors – hair cuts?
20. Duck tape – mouthy rodeo kids after a slow run? Hoof abscess,
21. Saran wrap – heat wraps
22. Dish soap – cleaning of wounds
23. Clean dry towels – water fights - compression bandage if nothing else
24. Alcohol – sterilize
25. Holy water – not a blessing from a father but a great rub made here in Utah

These are items that I seem to use year around. There are some great websites that go along with these products, and all of these you can purchase at a feed store or the vet.

Head Horse Ducking Tips

A common problem with good head horses is they learn to duck or go hard left as soon as the roper catches.  So here are a few tips that might help:

1) Do some steer stopping.  Instead of letting him go left.  Ask him to stop straight and stop the steer.
2) Don't dally immediately.  Leave some slack in your rope.  Force him to track the steer for awhile, then dally, and turn it off when you are ready. 
3) Work on control.  When you are not roping, work him off your left leg.  Do some basic roll backs and side passes.  This will help you have better control when you are roping.
4) Just track some steers.  Get him out of the habit of roping quick and going to the horn.  Several times during practice throw your rope but just track the steer to the bottom of the pen.
5) Adjust your position.  If you are not leaning left and moving left, the horse won't go left early.  Stay straight and change your position when you are ready to turn.  

The key is to mix it up so the horse is not trying to get ahead of you.  Get control and don't let the horse decide when you are ready to go left.
