It's a Cold Night, Cowboy!

What to do on a cold January night?
And I mean cold, as in 15 degrees cold!
We go watch Bowler Boys rope cattle!!
From what I understand, the cowboys gather together in the winter and practice their roping skills in an indoor arena. We were invited to come along and be the cheering section.
Brian was able to get a ride in before the competition began.

This shot makes me laugh. See the 2 men on the horses in front of Brian. That's Randy and Lynn and they are both texting on their cell phones! Geez, can't a man ride a horse in peace?

Shaeler and Alpine watching the cowboys do their thing. Normally I would have a shot of the cowboys doing their "thang" but they came out blurry and terrible.
We laughed the entire night because the announcer would announce what riders would be going in what order and it was like this:
Randy and Shayn
then we'll have Lynn and Randy
then we'll have Shayn and Lynn
then we'll have Shayn and Randy
then we'll have Shayn and Shayn???
No just kidding! I swear their were 12 cowboys total but the Bowler boys were always up. Which kept us (the cheering section of 3) up on our toes!

Afterwards, Shaeler was able to get a ride on the horse Smokey. (I think that's her name. Kristen?)
Could not get the child to get off the horse, at all!

Brian and Randy doing what cowboys do best! Shooting the bull!
Get it! Ha ha! No there were no bulls there! Steers, I think! You know the little mini cows with horns!

Shaeler and Alpine!

No, baby! I cannot get you a horse..........yet!

lol @ haylie's comment. she's right - horse urine and horse sweat. yum. and look at the influence of eden! does she know we all love her this much?

Shayn's horse is Smoke, you pretty much got it. So glad you guys came! It was fun - let's do it again, oh, say around February 25th. Good times.

also, I am honored to be your quote of the day!

How fun for Shaeler to ride a horse. That looks like it was a lot of fun.

That is funny those cowboys were texting while ridding.
