That horse just scores so good, it seems like I can almost ping the barrier every time. That steer was good, but they were 7.3 on him the second round, and I think the difference was in my start.
Russell Cardoza and I were three teams from the bottom here in the frst round at the Red Bluff (Calif.) Roundup, and the steers were a little trashy. It seems like a lot of people were losing legs to be really fast. We knew our steer from the Hork Dog, and he was the better one of the herd. I thought he was a loper, but I got such a good start that I got up there and he checked off. He came around and the steer checked off. He’s right up there around that steer, and he roped him the very frst jump. Where he heeled him, I wasn’t to the left fence yet, so I got a really good face and fnish and it took a half a second off the run. That horse faces amazing. We were 5.0 to win the round.
