In May, 2012, My Cowboy and I had the privilege of attending The Californios Ranch Roping and Stock Horse Contest. www.thecalifornios.com
We found a babysitter, and made a romantic getaway out of it. Yes - cowboys (and their wives) consider a rodeo romantic. We would rather spend our time together at a livestock event than push through crowded cities and sit on smelly subway cars. OK - cattle can be smelly, too, but we are used to that smell!
Anyways. We decided to drive to Reno, Nevada, where the event was held. I thought the reason for the driving was to see some country that we hdn't seen before...
Like this forsaken Big Basin country:
J.M. Capriola's had a booth set up at the trade show. As did Hitching Post Supply - where I get a lot of Mohair cinch cord for my cinches.
I thought they were beautiful. I also thought My Cowboy can make saddles that are just as beautiful.
He would say I am prejudiced.
