The biggest rodeo of the all is called Daddy of Em All. This is the rodeo that has the hardest bucking bulls and bucking horses. It takes all you have to hold on for 8 seconds. As the chutes open it is time to Cowboy Up. This cowboy learned what it is like to ride the best of the best at Daddy of Em All.

The love for the cowboy way has been instilled in me since I was a young girl. I was raised in Wyoming among some of the Lord’s greatest creations. His sunsets, sunrises, mountains, waterfalls, people and wildlife are just a few small blessings I glimpse of his beautiful creation. I live on a sheep ranch in Wyoming with three horses. I work daily with Columbia sheep. I have discovered the beautiful moments and the hardships of what a rancher experiences daily. A cowboy’s way of life embraces hard work, trust and respect.
