R.i.p Earney

Recommended Posts

Some of you may remember Earney.....he was the horse I had when I posted on HC long, long ago. He passed away a couple days ago. My dad rode him when he was younger, sold him, and we bought him back as a 19 year old. When he was 27 years old, we sold him to a kid who rode him and excelled on him in the roping and goat tying events. He won the Little Britches National Finals rodeo two times in a row in the breakaway roping. He took good care of him. A few weeks ago, he really started to show his age and they had a hard time keeping weight on but he was still full of piss and vinegar when turned out in the field. But I guess last week the kid could tell he was tired when he didn't practically run him over when being turned out, and made the decision to put him down.

He was 31 years young. He taught me how to rope; the whole family rode him. He worked awesome on the grass at the Pendleton Roundup pro rodeo; one year, 8 guys made it back to the short go on him. From Junior rodeo, to pro rodeo, he was all business. He'll be missed.
