Rypkema family announces annual memorial colt award
F.Ganje - January 16, 2018

RAPID CITY, SD – In this the 60th year of the Black Hills Stock Show, there are names synonomous with not just the event but the growth of Rapid City as well.  The Rypkema family falls into that category. “Those three guys, back in the 30’s and 40’s, were known as the Rypkema boys,” shares fourth generation son, Marv.   “It included my Dad, Lloyd, his brother Eddie with the 76 Angus Ranch and Eddie’s Truck Sales and Milo, with the Mt. Rushmore Angus and Dodge Town.”

The Rypkema family gifts an AQHA registered colt every year in memory of the history and legacy of the brothers and their respective roles in shaping the Black Hills Stock Show and Central States Fair.

The fifth annual Lloyd W. Rypkema Memorial Horse Award is open to youth ages  12 – 18 from the five-state region that includes the Dakota’s, Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska. The winner is selected on a criteria that includes involvement in agriculture and ranching, overall horsemanship experience and ability to take care of the colt.

“The brothers would often donate stock to 4-H and FFA, to encourage a young cowboy or cowgirl to continue in the western way of life,” recalls Rypkema.  “This is our way of continuing to contribute to the positive legacy of support they began.”

The Palomino filly colt is a descendant of Lloyds Devil Cat Dancer, sired by Tough San; mare to Sapphire Colonel; granddaughter of Cocoa Bar Two. The winner will be announced and the colt presented prior to the beginning of the Black Hills Stock Show Horse Sale, Saturday, January 27, 2018.

The deadline to enter is Sunday, January 21, 2018.  For more information and for applications, contact Marv Rypkema at  605-593-1002.  Or email mryp0830@gmail.com
