After a brief stop at home that included a major home project, the Johnsons hit the road again.
Mike and Sherrylynn left home last Monday, April 7 and headed to a rodeo in Logandale, Nevada. This rodeo is part of the Clark County Fair and Rodeo. It ended on Sunday, April 13. It is one stop along the professional rodeo's Wrangler Million Dollar Tour. Competition is for points that apply towards qualification at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
Mike left Logandale and drove north on Saturday night to Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada for the Broncs and Honky Tonks Indoor Rodeo.
When Sherrylynn left Logandale she headed to Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan for a three-day clinic. This photo is from the third day of the clinic and shows 18 future barrel racers/goat tiers.
Sherrylynn then headed to Brandon, Manitoba for another clinic. At the same time Sherrylynn was in Brandon, Mike was in Alberta helping 12 calf ropers at a clinic.
Mike is headed to Red Bluff, California for the 93rd Annual Red Bluff Round-Up, which runs from the 18th until the 20th. IN 1918 cattlemen in the Tehama County area got together and held a picnic and informal rodeo. The first rodeo was held at the A.H. Clough Ranch in Los Molinos. After a few bumps and starts during the early 1920s, the Northern California Rodeo Association held it’s last rodeo in 1925. The Red Bluff Round-Up started in 1926.
Sherrylynn is currently driving back to Alberta for five more days of barrel clinics.
There is no rest for the weary … at least not for the Johnsons.
