Rodeo Story

So I have added a new menu and some of the story’s are true (like the one I am about to tell you) and some of them are going to made up, so with out further ado here is the first (true) rodeo story.

Ok every thing started out like any good rodeo day, we got up early like really early as in it was still dark outside early. We pull up to the arena and I stared to warm up my horses. Now every event so far was good sure I had only gone into the arena once, to do the flag race or Flags as us rodeo people call it (I am not sure every one calls it that, but here in our rodeo community we do ). But so far so good, I thought now it was time the Pole bending or as we call it Poles, anyway I make my run, I walk my horse out of the arena and go to cool him down. Now sit back everyone here’s were it gets kind of interesting, My mom is coming over to me and saying,

“Go back to the gate, go” I looked at her a little confused.

“They are calling you back to the gate go!” They, is actually the people who where standing at the gates calling people out to the arena so they can make their run. ( I just thought I would clarify what I meant by they). As I go back towards the gate that we were going in from, I heard the person in the crow’s nest say that the eye was not working so I could do the run again. The person at the gate ask me if I wanted them to roll me and let some others go before I went in again or I could just do the run now.

“I’m just going ahead and doing this” I say. The guy at the gate nods and looks over to the judge, he nods letting the guy at the gate know that he was ready. I go through the gate and I speed down to the end pole, I can feel my hat start to come off I reach up and stick it back down on my head, but then my hat deiced that it was not going to take orders from the person wearing it because it came off and was in my face. I couldn’t see, but out of the corner of my eye I could see just a little bit and I could tell that we (me and my horse) where coming up to the end pole and again I couldn’t see! This was going to be a wreck if I didn’t do something soon. Now the whole time this was going on my free hand ( the one that was not holding the reins) was bating at the hat but was getting nowhere so finally the wind was just right and I swatted at the hat again and it came off of my face just in time too, because then I had to turn the end pole. So to sum up this pole run in a few words, this it what it was. Check, check, throw the hat, turn. So check means that you lightly tug up on the reins and your horse slows a little so you can make the turn on a barrel, or a pole. And there’s your lesson for the day folks always pull your hat down on your head before you go though the gate!

History 4 lesson 160

Benjamin Thompson 

Benjamin Thompson was born in Massachusetts, he apprenticed to a local merchant. Began experimenting with heat when he was 16. He was friends with an older guy who accompanied him to Harvard lectures. Thomson joined the side of the British during the Revolutionary war. He experimented with cannons and gunpowder. Thompson refuted the prevailing “caloric” theory of heat. He invented/ improved chimneys, fireplaces, and “Rumford’s soup”. He established the Royal Institution in 1799. He abandoned his first wife and divorced his second.Thompson’s reputation was strong in Britain because of his publishing history. He assisted German royalty. The American Academy of Arts and Sciences made him a member.  His theories on heat transfer stirred controversy. He was named “Count Rumford” in the Holy Roman Empire in 1701 and he was given lots of land.

Gas lighting

William Murdoch worked for James Watt, he erected and repaired Watt’s steam engines. Murdoch experimented with gas. He invented a portable gas lantern. Then he installed gas lighting in his own house. Gas light provides illumination all night long. They require less effort to maintain. Gas companies installed gas lunges throughout cities. The lights lengthened the working day. Murdoch lit the outside Soho Foundry in 1802. Others were trying to launch a gas light industry too. Watt wasn’t interested until word came in about a potential competitor. Free market capitalism provides prompts that lead to market breakthroughs.

William Murdoch

William Murdoch was born in 1754. He received a Scottish presbyterian education. Murdoch walked 300 miles to go to work for James Watt Boulton and Watt recognized Murdoch’s mechanical skills almost immediately. Murdoch’s biggest invention was gas lighting, he improved Watt’s steam engine without much publicity. Murdoch developed a working model of a steam carriage (car). His inventive creativity extended to chemistry. He also invented numerous smaller things. Gas lighting spread rapidly because it wasn’t patented. Murdoch made a lot of wealthy influential friends in the lunar society. He won the Rumford medal in 1808. 

Screw- Cutting Lathe

Screw- cutting lathes had been in early stages of invention in the middle ages. Many were designed, but were not practical. Henry moudslay was a British inventor. He worked for a locksmith and honed his machining skills. Maudslay invented the first successful screw- cutting lathe. The new machine tool cut screws with high precision. Identical gadgets replaced custom made gadgets. Maudslay’s entrepreneurship and marketing helped his machine become successful. He then went into business for himself. Maudslay went into partnership with Burned to make blocks. News of Maudslay’s success spread. His device led to international success.

Lightning Rod 

The Leyden (leiden) jar was invented in 1744, news spread across the ocean and reached Ben Franklin. Franklin became very interested in electricity by 1746. He noticed static electricity sparks looked like lighting. From this he devised his famous kite experiment. Lighting rods are metal spikes placed on tall buildings. Lighting can develop a billion volts and 300,000 amps. Electric fields become so strong they break down the insulating property of air. Lightning rods work as part of a lighting protection system. Used to protect all kinds of structures. Franklin installed them on public buildings in 1752. Lightning wasn’t well understood though to be evil spirits. They became controversial in the pulpit: thwarting God’s vengeance. In France a court case erupted over a man who installed a lighting rod.

Benjamin Franklin

Franklin was born in Boston in 1706. He wanted to be a sailor but his father wanted him to be a preacher. He became an apprentice instead. Franklin was always a learner; he founded a successful newspaper and became a freemason. Franklin was one of America’s first inventors. His “Franklin Stove” improved heat production efficiency,  and he invented bifocals. His autobiography was one of the most successful of its kind. Franklin became a founding Father, his newspaper increased his fame. So did his inventions. Poor Richard’s Almanck was most influential. It contained proverbs which are still recited today. As an ambassador, he was a model statesman. 

Glass Harmonica

Glasses partially with water can “sing”. Irishman Richard Pockrich popularised the “instrument” in the 1700s. Englishman Edward Deleval refined the instrument. He caught Benjamin Franklin’s attention. Franklin invented the glass harmonica as a variation of the original glass harp. Franklin’s instrument produced a sweet sound. It sat on it’s side and spun using a foot pedal.The instrument sounds “Ethereal” because of how we interpret sound. It wasn’t loud enough to fill an entire hall with sound. The instrument became popular for a while. Thousands had been sold by the time Franklin died (1790). Strange things happened which sent its popularity into decline. Franz Mesmer was a German who developed an idea of “animal Magnetism”. 

Swivel Chair

Thomas Jefferson was born in Virginia in 1743.  He got a great education and became a lawyer He took a scientific interest in agriculture and architecture. Heffrson invented lots of small practical devices. Including the swivel chair. Swivel chairs rotate on an axis in circles. Jefferson modified a vulgar sitting chair, Swivel chairs have maneuverability. Wheeled chairs provide convenience. Everybody likes swivel chairs. Franklin didn’t want to write the declaration because he didn’t want his words changed. Jefferson wrote it in his swivel chair. Scientific management focused on work efficiency.            

Black Beauty

Black Beauty is a book by Anna Sewell, it is such a good book. For those of you who do not know that book I will tell you a little bit about it but not too much or else I will just spoil the story. This story is in Black Beauty’s point of view, he starts out when he was a foal. Then he goes to a bunch of different homes, he meets different horses, and it such a good book! There are several movies that people have made and I have only seen one, but I LOVE horses and I LOVE this book and the movies.

Here is a picture from one of the movies the black horse on the end is Black Beauty and the pony is well…. ok sorry I forgot his name, and then the sorrel mare’s name is Ginger.
