Our Local Rodeo
I wanted to share with you all some pictures of the rodeo we had in our little village last Sunday. It was a big event this month with men coming as far as Colon to participate in the calf roping.
This is our local rodeo– a bit muddy and wet this time of year
Steve got there early to sell some essential cowboy gear

Oops– he missed that one!

The on-lookers listening to music, having a few drinks and a good time
People came on foot, horseback, trucks and even buses from far away towns to be here

Steve took a picture of them packing the horses in on his way home
I hope each and everyone had a fantastic weekend! We did!
