The early nineties seem like yesterday sometimes. Other times they seem like a million years ago. It just depends on the day. In those years we were listening to Garth Brooks, George Strait, and the Gin Blossoms, laughing at Seinfeld on a weekly basis, gawking over “car phones” that were larger than our landline units […]
It’s not immediately apparent when you drive through it on a summer weekend, but once upon a time the little town of Idaho City was a bustling hub of the Gem State. A quick fact search shows you that in its heyday, it was one of the largest cities in the Northwest, surpassing even Portland […]
Holy. Moly. Can you guys believe we’re already half way through the month of June? I’m absolutely in shock. It honestly seems like just yesterday I was out on a double-date, ringing in 2016… but in less than 15 days we’ll already be through month six! In that six months, I haven’t done the greatest […]
Trevor Brazile. Bobby Mote. Wes Stevenson. Ryan Motes. If these cowboys had something rodeo-related to offer, wouldn’t you be interested? These are the types of names that would attract a crowd if they offered to come to town and give speeches about rodeo. If they pulled up somewhere local with a stack of western-themed ball […]
My favorite part about the cattle industry is that no two ranching operations are the same; yet we all still manage to produce a safe, wholesome, and delicious product. Since we’re all so different, I’ve decided to give you all a quick little synopsis of how our ranch works! We start calving towards the end of […]

Rodeo has been a big thing in Caldwell Idaho since 1935, so much so that it has become closely tied to part of the town’s identity. One can’t go very far in the little old-west flavored city limits without reminders that they have their very own event. It’s important to the residents of Caldwell, rodeo […]
From atop his beautiful horse, Limo, the Snake River Stampede’s announcer Boyd Polhamus was quite clear. In unmistakable terms, and with counting fingers held out for all to see, he listed off all the professional rodeos that had celebrated their hundredth anniversary. Calgary, Cheyenne, Pendleton, and Pecos were counted before a pause to announce the […]
No one is perfect, they say, and it’s true. Everyone has things they do well, and things they don’t do well, and it’s important to know what those things are. It has been well established that Idaho knows to rodeo better than just about anyone else, so checking out the Gold Dust Rodeo in Idaho […]
Of all the rodeos on the Idaho Cowboy’s Association schedule, the Eagle Rodeo holds a unique place. While most of the ICA rodeos take place in tiny towns and locales even many Idahoans haven’t heard of — places with names like Kamiah, Weippe, and Spray, Or. — the Eagle Rodeo struts its stuff right in the middle of one of the […]
Idaho is a small state. Now, to be sure, it takes up a fair amount of space on the map, at 14th largest by area, but despite steady growth, still ranks 44th out of the 50 states for density — just the way we like it. Canyon is not the largest county, and neither Caldwell […]
I was born and raised in Idaho. The sagebrush, winding through the outcroppings and lava flows, were my playground in Shoshone, Idaho. A great bit of my time is now spent in the Owyhee’s on horseback, when I’m not in the Valley, and it reminds me of a more beautiful version of that sagebrush country.
I have always been a “Native” Idahoan and proud of it. By chance, someone sent me a ticket to Hawaii, as life has been a bit of a challenge for me these past 3 years.
