Angi's knee seems to have heeled (back as good as it was from the car accident anyway) Be kind to your knees children, I promise you, like your back someday you'll very much miss the days when they worked without complaint.
Ari made progress after Angi was able to walk again, however was not ready to go to TX. Since Angi pre adopted him for this event, she can take the time it takes to get him going right before finding him a permanent home.

Jenna & Henry had done well. She says when they lacked cow, they pushed wild burros in the canyon where she rides. Aim, Tiny, & Tornado had all done OK with the crowd,and bustle and while Henry went in and worked, his scores were not as high as Jenna had hoped.
Before her last class, cow work, Henry had a moment and Jenna ended up underneath him instead of on him. (Mustangs are pretty athletic) Jenna got back on, pushed her cow, and THEN went to the ER!
After the finals we all gathered back at the hotel and instead of going out to Billy Bobs we had wine and cake at the hotel to and sang Happy Birthday to Jenna!
