Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo
If the recent Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo held in Loveland, Colorado, October 25-27, 2018, is any indication, Ivy Conrado and KN Fabs Gift Of Fame (Frenchmans Fabulous x Mistys Dash Of Fame x Dash Ta Fame) are ready for the upcoming Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in December. “J-Lo,” owned by Kenny Nichols and Dale Barron ran the fastest time of the rodeo in round 3 to secure the average title over reserve champion Shali Lord who rode Freckles Ta Fame (Dash Ta Fame x Frenchmans Freckles x Frenchmans Guy).
