Edmonton Northlands 2011

Northlands in Edmonton is one of the last trials of the season. Everyone was in full force. Some people even tried to bribe the judge (me) with some icecream. After I had called Abe's dog Cap off for gripping, I feared for my life since he was staying at Penny Caster's as well that night. Never underestimate a Scotsman.

Penny Caster borrowed Corey Perry's dog.

I think in Penny's mind she was thinking, "Go ahead, make my day."
Stormy winters had not been in the forcast, but yet, here in Edmonton, Stormy Winters (and Kate) had arrived.

After the second go round in the morning, all the ten finalists waited until the evening to find out who would be the big weiner.

Louanne (who got both of her dogs in) and I watched the ranch horse competion and sale.

When that was done, we sat and watched people. The crowd was quite large, and being the week for the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association's finals, everyone dug out their best hat out of the closet.

There were look alike couples.

I thought Prince Williams was in attendance.

There was the bold...

...and the beautiful.

The finals was just prior to the finals of the Ranch Rodeo. The stands were packed (yes, really they were packed, this picture was from the earlier performances - do you think I really had time to judge and take pictures??? )

In the end, Thad Buckler and Nic took the big cheque home.

Louanne and I stayed to watch some of the Ranch Rodeo finals.

The teams of four has to various timed events, including, cattle sorting, branding, and wild cow milking. Yes, it was wild.

At intermission, a person won a free bull.

Sacks of nuts everywhere.

Louanne and I came home to Penny's soon after this. It was getting too nuts for us.

2011 Northlands is now in the history books.
