We sit down with @BekayShow to catch up on all his ranch life antics, and get him in our fav ‘Canada Approved’ Ariats.
What’s your day to day look like?
Well, each day on the ranch is a little different. Over night we have had elk break down fences, horses find ways out of the pasture. So it always keep things exciting. With these freezing winter temperatures, we are having a tough time keeping the water flowing at all times. There’s some time spent each day making sure everything is warm and running smooth. Feeding at the ranch is vital, we try and get a few round bales dropped in the feeding pen every few days. During the winter we tend to feed often just to help manage grass until spring.
After all the barn chores and checking for maintenance issues, I try to get on a few horses during the day that need the time. In the winter it’s usually horses that we need to stay in shape and a few of our young ones that we spent the summer training up. I’ll take them back into the hills and try and get an hour or so on each. Lately around 3:00 pm I’ll load up 2-3 horses and meet up with a bunch of locals and friends and do some conditioning work, or even some SkiJoring to help get ready for the big event coming up soon! The day always ends by pulling a few horses out and getting them stretched, and fed the last time before we call it a day!
Describe your personal style?
I’m a causal guy, I find myself in hoodies, vests and sweaters most of the time! Just want it comfortable enough to ride and work in.
You’ve been an Ariat fan as a whole and specifically and Ariat cowboy boot fan for a while now, what keeps bringing you back?
The comfort is everything to me, I’ve been through many different brands but every time I slide my foot in a pair of Ariat’s it’s hard to take them off. They are also made well, I’ve never had any issues
You’ve tried out the new ARIAT HYBRID RANCHER H2O COWBOY BOOTS, what’d you think?
I didn’t know exactly what to expect when I first got a pair. They look similar to every other Ariat boot, which I liked. Once I got them on and took my first step in snow, I knew these were something everyone needed. It’s been -35°C here west of Longview for the past week, and this is the FIRST time my feet have been dry and warm when coming in the house after a long day.
Absolutely, like I stated earlier. Every rancher needs a pair of these boots.
Waterproof and Warmth?
These are the ONLY cowboy boots that have kept my socks dry all day! When your feet are dry and warm there’s not a lot that can slow you down. From now though the end of winter, my old boots will be on the shelf.
Fit great and true to size. They are insulated, so they’re more comfortable than your everyday Ariats which says A LOT!
Tell Us… What’s next Brad ?
I look forward to seeing what these boots are capable of. In the coming months, I have A LOT planned and a lot of miles to put on. I look forward to continuing to have dry and warm feet in the H2O’s.
