He had to tell me three times that I had actually won it, I was
afraid they made a mistake?
Ah, the man that made this all possible, my husband, Danny Rose.
What a kick........I actually won a saddle! This is team roping,
so I didn't do by myself. Thanks to two partners, I had enough points to
come out on top. Per Pederson turned the two that won the average, plus
the fasted in the first go. Bob Hansen turned me the second fasted in the
first go. Bob turned me a nice one on the second steer, too...I just missed
. Thanks, guys.

Backing up a month......this was September 2004 at the ATRA Year
End Finals held at Porter's arena in Kerman, CA.
Joycelyn Ragoza turned this steer for me, I snagged two and ultimately
won 3rd for the year end plus 3rd for the day. These ropings are 'four steer
average' events.....ya gotta rope four steers the fastest to win/place.
As a heeler, I had so many 'star' runs that I never really knew if I was
roping for points or not. Things turned out alright considering at the second
roping of the year, not one steer was turned for me to attempt to heel?
I'll take third for the day and for year. They awarded a beautiful knife
for 3rd for the year.
This is how it begins
..........and then, this is how it ends..................
at the end of that rope was a steer, I caught both legs.
Thanks to Bart for taking these shots of me. He had never used
my camera, and this was his first time to try his hand at
roping shots. I gave him a quick 'lesson' and think he did real
well, don't you? As I am the one usually behind the camera, there
are not many photos of me around.

Some years back, February of 2000, to be exact, while my horse
was just a 'young thing', and just a few months prior to the start of my
health problems, he carried me to my first buckle win since I was 14 years
old. After that, we won another during the ATRA ropings that year. This
was an exciting time for me, also. At that time I placed a page showing
off the buckle, so if you wanna see the buckle I wear, you can go there.
These are my biggest wins, I don't really post everytime I manage to win,
honest. I feel blessed to accomplish all this.
The 2000 buckle.
