The Pendleton Round Up kicked off yesterday with Monday slack for steer trippers and barrel racers.
The Knott family - Mick, Toni, Sami, Jenni & Jessi and grandkids - are here this week from Hyannis, Nebraska (Clint's hometown) and so I went down to the Round Up grounds yesterday afternoon after work to watch Mick go.
Mick & Toni got here last week - the girls & grandkid's surprised their dad by showing up Saturday to cheer him on! His first words when he saw them were "Who's back at home running the ranch?!?"
Mick didn't get a time - darn it - but it was fun to watch him and we're headed back to slack today to watch his second run.
