So Much to Celebrate This Happy Father’s Day!
Time to wish a few special team roping dads a Happy Father’s Day!

Father’s Day is Sunday, and as so many team ropers migrate to the Reno Rodeo and BFI Reno Championship Week, it’s a great time to wish a few special dads a Happy Father’s Day!

Today is eight-time World Champion Team Roper Rich Skelton’s 55th birthday, so Happy Birthday, Rich! 

Rich’s partner in eight-gold-buckles crime, Speed Williams, just celebrated son Gabe’s Texas state junior high team roping title with Denton Parish, so congrats to the Williams family on that!

Since wife Kylee blessed World Champion Team Roper Chad Masters with baby boy Coy right after the 2020 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo last December, it’s Chad’s first Father’s Day as a dad!

World Champion All-Around Cowboy and constant world team roping title contender Junior Nogueira and his wife, Jaqueline, just found out that their little girl, Isabella, is going to be a big sister—and it’s a boy! 

To all you cowboy dads out there, thank you, safe travels and good luck!
