?8/3 Dalhart, Tx. Nt.
Spicer Gripp Pro-Am(4 head progressive after 2) ( A Pro-Am roping is a roping where an roper with a lower classification ((Usually a 5 or less)) can enter and draw a professional partner)
I drew 3 headers and a young man (and fellow Kansan I might add) by the name of Landon Koehn and I won the roping.
?8/4 Spicer Gripp Open (6 head progressive after 1) We where 9, 9, 8, and 8 and setting really good in the average going??into the 5th round. Our 5th steer was strong and my rope ran (slid after I dallied) and I burned both my hands bad and lost it. It was a blessing??I didn't cut my fingers off but the Spicer is a good roping and we where in a good position to win a check.
