A superior showcase of Western artists and craftsmen

Celebrating its milestone 10th anniversary, the Summer Stampede Western Art & Gear Show presented by Capital Farm Credit promises an unforgettable evening of art, entertainment, and camaraderie on Saturday, June 1, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, TX.

“Summer Stampede has become a favorite way to kick off summer,” said the show’s art curator, Dr. Robert Tidwell, who serves as the Helen DeVitt Jones Endowed Director of Collections, Exhibits and Research at the National Ranching Heritage Center. “This year’s event promises to be no exception, offering guests an enchanting evening filled with exceptional artwork, lively Western swing music, and the chance to mingle with talented artists.” The Summer Stampede Western Art and Gear Show presented by Capital Farm Credit is a premier showcase of renowned Western artists and craftsmen. Highlighting the diversity of Western artistry, the exhibition will feature works by recognized artists and craftsmen including Billy Klapper, Bruce Greene, Emily McCartney, Herman Walker, Garland Weeks, Teal Blake, and many more. Each piece in the show embodies the spirit and heritage of ranching in keeping with the mission of the National Ranching Heritage Center.

Attendees can view and purchase authentic Western pieces—from exquisite paintings, photographs and sculptures to meticulously crafted cowboy gear—as well as meet many of the artists in person.

In addition to the art show, attendees have come to regard Summer Stampede as one of the most looked-forward to events of the year for its fun and friendly atmosphere. Enjoying a steak dinner by Cagle Steaks & BBQ on the patio and dancing to Jake Hooker & the

Outsiders under the West Texas stars has become the perfect kickoff to summer for 10 years running.

As an annual fundraiser for the National Ranching Heritage Center, proceeds from ticket and art sales support the historical preservation and education initiatives of NRHC. Capital Farm Credit continues its outstanding support of the event as the 2024 presenting sponsor.

Limited tickets are now available and advanced purchase is required. Tickets can be purchased online at summerstampede.com or by calling (806) 742-0498. Prices are $100 for Ranching Heritage Association members, $125 for the general public, and $1,500 for a reserved table for 8 under a tent.

When a City Girl Goes Country

It was one of those necessary, yet very sad days in the life of a cattle rancher. We had to say goodbye to our bull, Frankie. We returned from the agonizing drive, and I felt compelled to sit down and ponder how to write an ode to a very good bull.

I have read all the rationale on when it is time to retire a bull. The average age for many ranchers is around eight years. Our Frankie was beyond his prime. We probably knew last year it was about time for him to retire. His lack of enthusiasm when he returned to the herd after his spring hiatus was a clue.

The very slow start to our spring calving this year, and cows that never conceived confirmed what we did not want to admit last year. It was time. Frankie was a handsome and gentle giant. A Charolais mix, but he could be fierce if he felt threatened.
