However, I do expect them to be prepared to compete. Preparation is how to give yourself the best opportunity to win and lets you overcome obstacles that will come your way. There were times when Gabe was younger and wouldn’t be as prepared as I would like, and he would get an eye roll from me. But I do try to let him do things his own way, but we would have a conversation afterwards. I’ve seen him be second high call for $35,000 at the All-Star Finals, sitting next to the heeling box with a leg thrown over the horn visiting. Thankfully the announcer said, “Hey Gabe, you’re up.” He did win second in the roping and later told me, “Dad, I knew I had to catch that one or you’d be upset.” He’s a happy little fella and will talk to anyone at any time and may be having a conversation when the header nods. But it doesn’t seem to affect him. He’s able to focus and do his job well. I’m very happy that’s he’s had such a great start at the amateur rodeos. Speed Williams...
