Montana Bones has some fun news to announce!  Our brand is now supporting Kaitlin Kolka, who is the current Miss Rodeo Montana. She works as an Extension Agent for Chief Dull Knife Extension Office on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Lame Deer, Montana.  This is the town Dana Holzer, Montana Bones’ founder served in as a VISTA twenty years ago.  Kaitlin’s work with Extension and her well-recognized commitment to excellent, are some of the reasons Montana Bones sought out Kaitlin for a brand partnership.

When Kaitlin was just 4 years old, she dreamed of becoming a “Miss Rodeo” just like her mom who had been Miss Rodeo Oregon.  Kailin’s dream came true and she enjoys representing Montana.  (Kaitlin on the right).
