Horse Play Day Series Wraps-up
Published June 7, 2012 @ 6 a.m.
The 2012 Garza County 4-H Play Day Series prizes were awarded following the final play day on Saturday, June 2.
Paul and Danya Peterson of Southland led the series. The traditional events offered were barrels, poles & flags. There three new events were the keyhole, stakes race and a weekly mystery event. The mystery events were fun and funny but all I’ll add is it included western boots, water balloons and apples.
The buckle for the 5 & Under age group was sponsored by Gary McDaniel and went to Sylee Peterson. A leather halter sponsored by Brian Drum Plumbing went to Kendall Swaffer. Citizens Bank, Post sponsored the 6-9 buckle which went to Trea Peterson and the leather halter which went to Joby Fogerson. The 10-14 age group was very close but Brooke Swaffer pulled out the win earning a buckle sponsored by GCJLA with Makaylee Bulter earning the leather halter sponsored by HF&C Feeds. Cale Fogerson received the 16-19 buckle also sponsored by Gary McDaniel. Each participant received a personalized bucket, designed by Danya, full of horse supplies.
Other youth participating included Kohan Hudman, Kyna Hudman, Justin Self, Sterlin Self and Dallyn Fogerson. Open sponsors included Gebos, Buzz Cooper, Dennis & Nancy McDonald and Fogerson Arena. Thanks to the Post Stampede Rodeo Board for the use of the arena. Weekly helpers included Paul and Danya Peterson, Kyle and Jerry Fogerson and Nancy McDonald.
