Whether it's the rodeo world or cattle industry,

I think one of the best compliments you can receive, is to be called {handy}.

"That guy - he's sure handy on a horse."

"That girl - she looks to be pretty handy."

It's someone who can handle themselves in a lot of different situations.

 They're usually a team with their horse, can swing a rope well, know when to jump in a help, and when to leave well enough alone. 

And most importantly, they can get you out of a pickle.

The arena crew at the Round Up is a great set of people, many of whom have volunteered their time and skill for many years.

They push calves, carry flags, help cowboys, play practical jokes on the clown, and make things happen.

Here's a tip of the hat to those who helped - and those who showed your skill.

Thanks for being {handy}.
