If I remember correctly, ( Wayne told me afterwards) he was saying 'don't lose it now big John, I got money on ya' ' . What a great kid he was, so polite and enthusiastic, though I do owe him for roping me....smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: OH! That's awesome!
He was a really good boy (except when he roped you!)

Nice one, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Ray!
i love the shot of the old timer giving hints to Wayne... but i'm sure that the boy is just going along with him Elizabeth....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Actually, Wayne is the old timer.... and he would take hints from little "Big" John! That boy could rope anything!!!
Great capture Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Richard!
Hooey to you, too! Wayne reminds me of my grandson, actually, Elizabeth. All grown up and still growing! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't that hat perfect!
Actually, Wayne is the mustachio'd cowboy here... Little "Big" John is the kid... They do grow up fast. John is a little guy for his age, but boy he beat just about every other cowboy there. He's nationally ranked at only 12 years old! Really something!

He's learnt a lot in his 12 years, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He certainly has, and I think he's got a God given gift for riding!

'.....but....but.....I just roped that nice gentleman over there... he asked me to sit still and you know I cannot sit still, I want to rope everything that is moving'...
Absolute fabulous picture (I read the replies before my comment wink)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Excellent dialogue, Astrid!!!! And could be true to life! smile

He's learning
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He certainly is, he takes it all in!
I wonder if he will still be going at 92?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I've no doubt, Bill!
Ah, poor little boy, I bet he could show that man a trick or two Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile That little boy could certainly hold his own!!

Good encouragement "I have money on you!".
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No kidding, huh Louis?! smile
Looking self assured, isn't he.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: And rightly so!

Hahaha!! I bet the old timer to teach the kid a few things, though.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No doubt, Alan. Wayne is a good friend of ours, and he and his wife are just the kindest, most fun people... They've both been riding and rodeo'ing all their lives.
I like the idea of the little kid telling the big kid just how it should be done.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile That little kid was something else, Brian! And a very polite young man as well!
They believe in starting 'em young, eh?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They're on a horse before they can walk!

He looks a real professional smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He will be in 4 years - when he's 16 he can officially enter the ranks of professionals. Right now, he's ranked #4 in the nation for amateurs.
