Barrel Racing at its Finest!
February 2013It's foaling and breeding season at Black Star, we are expecting the stork to leave us 15 new babies out of our Black Star stallions and our broodmares. An addition to that 2 coronas leaving you race foals. Kris has been fortunate meeting and creating a wonderful friendship with Mary Walker. Mary will be mentoring Kris during her rodeo fun. Maintenance and repairs are a never ending form of ranch work. The weather seems to be a never ending battle- good ole south Louisiana. Ms Kris is close to competing again, we have been gathering her gear and cleaning her saddles. We are looking forward to seeing her run down the alley again. Famous Pie our 5 yr old stallion is now standing at Victory Farms with Danny Ray along with Born Ta Be Famous. Partnering up with Danny Ray has worked very well for both ranches. With Ms. Kris entering the rodeo arena we decided to keep Packin Sixes Jr at Black Star since he still is in competitive form. Bayou fuel would be sacrilegious letting him leave his home state of Louisiana. We have been waiting for the weather to clear to hold a few roping events.

BSR's Humor Corner:
Boudreaux rushed into Doc Robicheaux’s office carrying a duck. He gently placed the duck on the exam table, it lay there limp and not moving."
“Doc, you gotta help my duck”, Boudreaux said. Doc Robicheaux looked at the duck and shook his head.
“Boudreaux, your duck is dead”, he said. “Doc, you gotta do something - run some test - do something”, Boudreaux demanded.
“Okay”, Doc Robicheaux said. The Doc whistled and a large black Labrador Retriever came in. The dog sniffed the duck from all sides, looked at the Doc, shook his head from side to side, and went back out. The Doc made a clicking sound with his tongue and a gray cat came in. The cat jumped on the table and watched the unmoving duck for a couple of minutes, turned to the Doc, shook his head from sided to side, and went back out. “Boudreaux, your duck is dead”, Doc Robicheaux told Boudreaux, “Dat’ll be 125 dollars”.
“Dat’s a lot just to tell me dat my duck’s dead”, Boudreaux protested. “Boudreaux, I examined the duck and told you it was dead - that woulda been 10 dollars. You’re da one dat demanded da Lab-Work and da Cat-Scan”, Doc Robicheaux explained.
