Friday night, we attended a local rodeo -- a fun family outing!
Looking at the program before it begins...
How grateful I am for my family!
The before-rodeo parade -- the empty saddle stands for someone dear who had passed away
A cute tyke!
These two showed up, too!
Cowboy hats blossomed abundantly :)
Like this horse! This is one of the "pick up riders" -- there to keep the cowboys safe
Good try, but you're coming off... ;)
This guy in the steer wrestling failed to get the steer down first try, and then spent half a minute wrestling perseveringly with the beast until he finally got it down! ;)
Horses making friends while their masters wait...
The barrel racing is always such fun -- and what a treat to see a powerful horse going full blast!
A great evening together! We go to rodeos "once in a blue moon," and it was fun to go to this one!
