Bobbie as a spectator2
It has been two years now since Joe and I bought the Horsemen’s Corral. The first year flew by and this past one has been no different. If anything we have been even busier but having the time of our lives! Have there been rough spots? oh yeah. Being new to the publishing world we of course had much to learn. Do we expect to travel more rocky roads? Sure. Considering today’s economic climate for small and medium size business owners, sometimes we face challenges beyond our control. But when we get to sit back for a few quiet moments and just contemplate, that’s what life is about; facing challenges in an ever changing world, learning from those same challenges, and always going forward.
On our second anniversary, I’d like to thank all of you; our subscribers and our advertisers, for your continuing support of the Horsemen’s Corral. And as always, we thank our wonderful staff for keeping the faith!

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
And Today? Today is a gift.
That’s why we call it the present.”

The Last Ride
“So when we do make that last ride that is inevitable for us all to make, to that place up there, where the grass is green and lush and stirrup high, and the water runs cool clear, and deep—You’ll tell us as we ride in that our entry fees have been paid. These things we ask.—Amen” —Excerpt from ‘A Rodeo Cowboy’s Prayer’ by Clem McSpadden.

Linda A. (Nicholls) Bowlby, passed away unexpectedly October 19. Linda was a member of SOLA, ASA, AQHA, OQHA, OAQHA, NOQHA, EOQHA, SOQHA. It is a sad day for a great many people. Much can be summed up about Linda’s character by a quote she attached to her email signature line: “Life is not the way it’s supposed to be; it’s the way it is. The way we cope with it is what makes the difference… ~

May God bless all the trails you ride,
