R is for Rodeo. . . For the best experience turn on the song
A few weeks ago the family was all together we did our favorite thing . . .
We've been known to drive a looooong way to get to a Rodeo. Some came from Missouri to meet for a Saturday night in the Stock Yards
Not a seat in the house.
The crowd waits . . .
The Flag Enters and then . . .Every performance begins with Prayer . . .
And then . . .
All is quiet. There's a hush over the crowd . . .
The rider prepares . . .
The first event and most dangerous is the Bull Riding . . .
The clowns protect the riders and entertains the crowd between events . . .
Our littlest Cowboy dreaming of the day he can chase the dream. . .
A two man event Headin' and Heelin'. . . two Cowboys work together to catch the cow . . .
Another dangerous event Saddle Bronc if the rider stays on till the buzzer sounds he is picked up by a pick up rider . . .
I couldn't find a photo from the Stockyards Rodeo but this is a great shot!
One of our favorite events to watch is always the last event of the evening . . .
. . .
it's bulls and blood ,the dust and the mud, it's boots and chaps, it's spurs and latigo, it's ropes and the reins, the joy and the pain and the call the thang Rodeo
