I just wanted to be like my brother Cody and do what he did, she said. I was happy as long as I was following him around. He was never happy with that though.
And while Cody now competes professionally, his sister, 19, has gone her own way by choosing to go off this coming August to Howard College in Western Texas to study nursing and ride for the schools rodeo team.
Im looking forward to the things she can bring to our program, coach Greg Kernick said. Shes going to be an asset in the team roping and breakaway and shell be a competitior in barrel racing as well.
