I think they called this "Mutton Busting" - I couldn't believe my eyes when the first kid came out of the gate on the back of the sheep. This isn't any pony ride... the sheep wants the kid off and does the bucking sheepo until kid goes flying.
These are some brave little kids... They all walked off the ring on their own two feet - despite how positively scary this looks...
I took these today at the Truckee Rodeo - my first rodeo ever. I was impressed. I think I like rodeos. I shall attend more rodeos in the future.
PS.. have some really cool pictures of the ladies barrel racing, and the bull rides. Am currently trying to figure out where I should put them.
