We've been reading Armadillo Rodeo this week (pictures to come soon!), so last night we went to a real rodeo!
The first event was called Mutton Busting--that should probably be Bustin', but I don't really know. Little kids--one was just 3--were put bareback onto a sheep and then let loose. Turns out that sheep can run really fast. I don't know how these kids' moms let them do this without taking a few valium before things start.
Alice liked climbing on the fence and watching the animals. Jack said the whole thing was just okay, because he was disappointed that he didn't get to ride, too.
Jack was concerned that the cows were hurt, but the mostly just seemed annoyed by the whole experience.
