You are reading close to July 1 while I type close to June 1 about what happened in May.So,有时我只是做东西。You should try and catch me by doing some of your own thinking and research.If I can get you to not trust me,那我就成功了。
I wish I was making up the passing of Trey Hunt,but it is true.Trey was an exceptional person.生活中的超级明星。一个真正的牛仔，有一颗真正的心和真正的天赋，勤奋地实践和应用。他是所有人的真正朋友，so he had true friends by the hundreds.You did not even have to know him to be friends.他生病的故事令人心碎，but it was also very scary.
他41岁，对所有认识他的人来说，perfectly healthy.One morning,he worked a few horses,stepped down off one and went to the ground with his left side paralyzed.脑癌。Eight months later we were at his service.There are no words (or not enough words) to square this away.It isn't going into a box and up on a shelf.像那天早上特雷骑上第一匹马一样过你的生活。维亚康迪奥，Trey Hunt。You made a difference.
The world,我们的世界，他们的世界，每个人的世界，正在以不同的方式改变，a dramatic way.Not in leaps,但以蚂蚁大小的步子。几十亿个，他们正在冲刺。Many politicians are promising to take us back to a time that never was and many people are believing them.It isn't going to happen.Our industry,亚博在线登入砍马和砍马正是这场风暴的焦点。
We do not have a choice of if we change or not;the only choices we have are how we are going to change.We are actually pretty good at this.We have changed a lot from the South Texas round-ups in the 1860s till now,although often reluctantly and too often,慢慢地。几十年来以血统为主的著名马匹不会成为今天的第二匹。我们很擅长在遗传学上发现新的东西，以一种全新的方式来赢得比赛。But we aren't very good at spotting new ways to run our association.
We aren't very good at being part of the changes in the world right now.The National 亚博在线登入Cutting Horse Association Convention is four days away.Barbara Brookswhen she was president,发起了一项改变我们治理的倡议。议程上最大的项目是竞赛委员会。Many people have put many hours (me being one of them) into this.它会让我们，among other things,much more agile in making decisions.It will be a great disappointment and waste if we do not pull the trigger on this.
The affliction of the times is apparently frustration.Everybody is done with how it has been but not really sure on what it should be.When we get up to feed,most of us have a plan for the day.我们中的一些人计划提前到下一场演出。A few,very few,have a plan all the way to the end of the hauling year.那又怎样？我们中的许多人致力于赢得未来、世界或地区，and some of us even get that done.What is the plan for making this blessing into a permanent,ongoing thing?Too often the plan is having more and better horses to ride.Without a plan,all of us are only as good as our last cow or our last column…both pretty undependable.当然，good words are as rare as good horses and,like horses,don't always have any cow in them.
昨晚，我接到儿子诺亚的电话。His cancer may have returned.He is 24.We won't get results till after I turn this in.
我要求每个人都从这条路往下看。What are you working for?作为刀具，我们的生活方式比世界上大多数人都好。We need to look way farther than the next cow.So,let's make this happen.让我们共同努力实现一个长期目标——最幸福的交往，with the happiest people.
