So the big rodeo here is a huge event here. ...like the event of the year whether you're into country music/showing animals/or anything rodeo related due to several reasons (mainly every big name artist comes, the roundup of all the hot women ...unfortunately this is true and what MOST men married or not will talk about, then rodeo, and bbq).
But I guess the highlight of this years was Mutton Bustin'. I couldn't believe it and thought the kids would get hurt, but I guess I keep hearing they don't ...and are usually children who have farm animals themselves. The average age is FOUR. Mostly popular in small fairs, but has grown tremendously. I guess you had to be there to understand how much of a hit this was. People here can't stop talking about it. No way my oldest (who is very passive and quiet), but some kids are rough and already have their dad's big boy genes.
Wondered if gotsheep let her grandchildren do this
Not the grandkids.
But how about my own kids?
Yes, my son Travis did Mutton Bustin' when he was a child. In fact we have a trophy on the wall. The plaque reads:
1995 Mutton Bustin'
Champion 5-7 Year Old
Bend of the River Saddle Club
My SIL got video - it was a great hit. He did it at our county fair as one of the evening events.
And Travis is far from the rough and tough cowboy image - he is my quiet, non-competitive computer boy - now 21. He did it with his 3 other boy cousins - Travis just happened to hang on and win!
|HaHA! I love it!|
|I just love the name...Mutton Bustin...|
|Hey, they have on helmuts and safety vests. These farm and ranch kids are tough! Yeah, best you not attend a 4H rodeo, you'd be amazed what kids do at young ages. Cute video, thanks|
|That's what I look like trying to catch Ru on the field when he won't come back|
|I've been a Mutton Buster ( 4-6 years old) -- but never won. My cousin Brett is a champ, winning 5 straight years. LOL
Not nearly as bad as it sounds!
