My Wandering Horse

This story originally appeared in the November 2009 issue of Texas Coop Power Magazine. https://www.texascooppower.com/texas-stories/people/my-wandering-horse In 1998, I moved from north to south Texas, which was somewhat like moving out of the country.

A Long, Cold Trip to the Top of Texas

We then took our … Continue reading

Winning a Buckle at Kowbell Rodeo

Twenty seven years ago: It didn’t take long for Travis to become known as a good bull rider. He was getting on bulls wherever and whenever he could, and he was riding well.
