We went to a local rodeo over the weekend and there was so much to photograph! The plan was for our son to ride a sheep in the mutton bustin’ but he changed his mind at the last minute – smart kid 😉 He watched as all of his friend’s got bucked off and didn’t think it looked like fun.
I think he enjoyed hanging out behind the bucking chutes. Here he is with his two cousins.
Here is his friend, Cole, hanging on for dear life
and his awesome dismount. I thought it was awfully considerate of the sheep to jump over him!
What a silly group!
The bucking horses
and the saddles they would be wearing later.
After the mutton bustin’ there was steer riding. Our neighbor, Clay, was entered in this event.
He did a good job
and got a round of applause for his dismount 🙂 He had a big smile on his face when he got up.
I enjoyed the sites and the sounds of the rodeo.
This big guy was my favorite!
He was quite the character and was very involved with playing with his bit.
He had a very important job to do. This is my favorite part of a rodeo.
God bless the USA!
