I was asked to take photos at a special roping event on a ranch in New Mexico. The rancher was holding the event to honor all the people who had worked for him that year. There was roping all day long, a lovely lunch complete with a birthday party! People stayed to visit long after the event ended. It's often a good time to chat with friends and neighbors.
