This year we "encouraged" Hayden and Payton to do the mutton busting event at the Grant County Rodeo. They agreed... not seeing how it could be that much more difficult than riding Humpty Dumpty or Tucker. So on the opening night of the roundup Hayden and Payton joined their cousins and several other young cowboys/cowgirls as the opening event.
Helmets and vests were required....
First up was Hayden
He drew a monster named the "Woolly Bully"
Starting to slide
Off he came....
Our little cowgirl was up next
Her sheep was nicknamed "Ram-Bo"
A tough little ride!
She took the time afterward to wave to the Grandparents in the crowd!
