I just heard that longtime rodeo producer/stock contractor Marvin Brookman, Wolf Point Mt. died- been putting on rodeos since back in the 40's I think- Has been the only stock contractor the Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede ever used...He has been in bad health the last few years- but seldom missed a rodeo...He was 92......

I only got to go to the Wolf Point Rodeo once but the stock was sure good. Hey OT do you know the infamous Chris Brookman lol.

Oh yeah- I do--I usually see him several times in the fall when he's buying calves- but didn't see him at all this year...

And old Marvin definitely did have a string of broncs- some awful wild...Story is that Dan Mortenson quit going to Brookman rodeos- even the Montana Pro Circuit Finals because of those "wild' horses....

For years they used to trail the horses the thirty or so miles in for the Stampede.....

Went to college with Roger-- See him at some of the brand inspectors meetings and always at the Stampede- except his wife put her foot down on his wild horse racing after a wreck that had his head looking like Frankenstein for awhile.....

About 30 years ago him and I were the only ones at the pay window with tickets for an Exacta payoff at the Miles City Races- paid over $600- big money then..We were talking and the only reason both of us picked the horses we did was they were the only Indian owned- and since both of us come from the Rez....
