The Johnsons have been in Canada for the past few weeks. Last weekend they went to three rodeos. The Johnsons are pros and while it might be challenging for some folks to get to three rodeos in a month, the Johnsons managed to do it in one weekend.

Mike placed third at the 92nd Annual Dawson Creek Exhibition & Stampede in British Columbia. This event includes World Professional Chuckwagon, Western Chuckwagons, Pro Tour Rodeo, Bareback, Saddle Bronc, Tie Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping, Ladies Barrels and Bull Riding. (This video is of Mike's run at Dawson Creek.)

Mike broke the barrier to win third at the Camrose Spring Classic Pro Rodeo, April 25-27. The Camrose Regional Exhibition started in 1908 and has been an important part of the City of Camrose and the surrounding area. It was formed as part of the Agricultural Societies Ordinance. Originally its goal was to improve the quality of life for the agricultural community through improvements in agriculture, horticulture and homemaking.

Scooby’s first runs back were just out of the money. Sherrylynn said she’s not sure if they had ever run in a hockey rink with a 13 second pattern. Scooby is 15.3 hands tall and weighs 1235 so the hockey rink may have seemed a bit small to him.

Of course it’s still cold in Canada this time of year. The wind had been blowing and when you add in some sleet that makes for a sick barrel racer. Hopefully Sherrylynn feels better soon. Her last week in Canada was going to be a little slower than usual so it was going to be spent helping a few kids with their rodeo skills.

This week it’s off to Indianapolis for a 5-day clinic May 7-11.
