This one is a Colorado Tradition. Tonight we went to the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo. It is one of the few places where you can watch Mutton Busting, which is where children are strapped to farm animals and it’s called entertainment (The announcers words, not mine). Actually it is, especially when they give the 4 and 5 year old kids trophies bigger than they are tall. All of these pictures were shot with my wife’s Canon S400.

Stagecoach, exit stage right.

One thought on “National Western Stock Show and Rodeo

  1. I have a son that is currently 5 years old. He will be 6 next year for the national western stock show. He has done nothing but talk about being in the mutton busting contest next year. How can we register him? We are also really good friends with Ces Grant.
