Also, I love how this organization educates the youth by providing several opportunities to learn about our environment at the livestock show. Seeing the youth benefit from this organization makes all of the work worth it. Since 1932, this organization has provided more than $450 million for the kids in Texas and this is a major reason the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is so

THE TIME I MADE IT TO LITTLE BRITCHES NATIONALS “OUR HORSES ARE OUR TEAMMATES, OUR SOUL MATES. IT’S A TEAM EFFORT. YOU CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT SO MANY PEOPLE BEHIND YOU.” -Lisa Lockhart. This saying is so true in the sport of rodeo, you can not do it without your family behind you or the horses that you love and care about with you. The National Little Britches Rodeo Association is like a second family.
Source A, “The Sport - the Life- of Rodeo” says, “Just like in basketball, there is a team. My team consists of my horses, my parents and everyone who helps me keep my horses working, including my vet ad my farrier, who shoes the horses,” (Pallesen). In high school rodeo, I always do anything to make my equine athletes feel their best. Our horses travel together so much that they pretty become a team. My horses, parents, and myself are a great team.
I had been backpacking before, but when I had heard of Philmont, a scout camp out in New Mexico, I was exceptionally excited. My crew and I had picked a trek we were going on, and then we trained. I trained for four to five months before the hike. My dad and I 5 other scouts were doing the trek which would go to Baldy Mt. and The Tooth of Time.
I read every article posted about him and his football career or every article about his charity work. I want to meet Tim Tebow because of his uplifting spirit and his true love of God. If there every was a day I met Tim Tebow I would want to meet him at Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Company. They are located in Chicago and I only eat there once a year because it is the first place my grandmother and I ate after her doctor appointment
First dreams show how committed you are as a person. In the first chapter of the book, our main characters George and Lennie talk about their dream of having a ranch to live on it one day. The text says, “... we’re gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an’ a cow and some pigs --- An’ live off the fatta the lan’” (Steinbeck 14). This excerpt from the text shows that George and Lennie are dedicated and not afraid to work to achieve their dreams to make a life of their own. Steinbeck shows this because he is showing the personalities of the characters through their dreams and aspirations.
With the assistance of local livestock agent H. C. McMullen, Weadick convinced four local businessmen, Pat Burns, George Lane, A. J. McLean, and A. E. Cross (better known today as The Big Four) to donate $100,000 towards funding the Stampede. The Big Four saw this project as a final celebration of their life as ranchers, a chance to share their lifestyle and love of everything western. 100,000 people attended the event in September 1912, which lasted 6 days. Voyeurs watched hundreds of cowboys from Western Canada, the United States and Mexico compete for $20,000 in prizes. The event generated $120,000 in revenue and was hailed a huge success for
During my second year of High School and my second year of agriculture, my teacher had been talking about an organization/club called FFA or Future Farmers of America the largest student-run organization in America that actively recruits and participants in Agricultural happenings in every state and High School around. In just about every High School whether active or not they had an FFA. In the High School, the last FFA was in the 8o´s and my teacher had the great wanting of having another active FFA chapter so we set out to do so. It took 2 semesters and many students filling out paperwork and sending it into the national FFA back East finally we got the finalization of the South Whidbey FFA club, we were official. With the start of the
As a proud member of the Mercedes Tiger Band color guard and drill team, a lifetime goal for me would be to join a marching band and/or college dance team. Coming into high school I never thought my passion would be to be performing in front of hundreds of people every Friday Night for four years. It has become my passion and it brings me much joy to perform and have the time of my life on that football field. I have had an amazing four years participating in many extracurricular activities but I have found that my biggest passion is colorguard. I have grown to love the sport.
All the time I hear people say they want to be a veterinarian! “OSU is ranked one of the best veterinarian colleges in the world.” (Oklahoma State University Information). “OSU’s livestock judging team was Reserve at the National Western Stock Show in 2014.” (Animal Science). “At Oklahoma State University Freshmen have to live in dorms, on campus.” (Oklahoma State University). “The department of animal science sponsors five different judging teams.” (Animal Science).
Rodeo has helped me grow up. Since third grade I went from going to rodeos with my family to chasing the white lines on my own. I have had numerous opportunities presented to me from rodeo such as being on tv for qualifying for Worlds, traveling all the way to New Mexico and Wyoming to compete, and being rodeo queen for Southern Indiana Junior Rodeo Association. My parents took care of my horses for me. They cleaned stalls, fed them day and night, and packed the trailer for each rodeo.
