Buckle up, y’all! Shane Holman, the beautiful blonde below and on the right, has quite the story about her rodeo family tree!
“The late Sally Marvel Freeman is the mother of Pete (my husband), Quincy (as in Rodeo Quincy), and Holly. So, my husband Pete has two sisters: Holly (Lily Hay’s mom) and Quincy. (Lily Hay is married to Dawson Hay and Quincy is married to Dakota Eldridge.)
“Sally (above right) was sister to Joe and Nike Marvel, both bronc riders, Joe was a world champion. Sally is also the sister to Amy Seifert who is Annie Bigalow’s mom, married to Clayton Bigalow.
“Sally was married to John Holman, NFR bronc rider; Pete and Hollys dad!”
“My husband Pete has Billie Holman (daughter) and Lefty Holman (son)! They are my step kids but I’ve raised and we also had Blaze and Pistol Holman together.
“Billie is engaged to Clayton Sellars, NFR bull rider.
“Lefty is engaged to Hailey Onaka, rodeo team and Cal Poly grad who is originally from Hawaii.
“Pete’s sister, Holly has a daughter named Lily that married NFR bronc rider, Dawson Hay.
“Pete’s other sister, Quincy, is married to NFR steer wrestler, Dakota Eldridge. Quincy’s dad is Billy Freeman.
“Everyone in the family rodeos, shows horses, and grew up in the western lifestyle!
“Billy, my step-daughter and I (Shane) work for Ariat. And my niece, Lily, works for Rodeo Quincy.
Folks, we tried to draw you a picture of this rodeo family tree but kept getting our branches crossed! This whole clan now lives in Visalia, California. Looks like Visalia may be giving Decatur and Stephenville down in Texas a run for their money!” -Shane Holman
