I only had a scant (In my opinion) amount of time time to pick out a wearable cowgirl themed outfit and I think this came out pretty well.
My rodeo duds: Boots, gift from Mom on my 13th birthday
Skirt, made by me
Black long sleeve shirt, local thrift shop- $1
Red paisley 'handkerchief' shirt, goodwill- $3
Belt, thrift store- $1
Western hat, Allegan Antique Market - $10
We love living in a small community, wouldn't have it any other way!
Now... ON TO THE RODEO!
(It sounded sort of tacky to say,"The American flag")
It took a long time to round him up.
That concludes the bronc-riding and now we will be moving on to bulldogging...
These two were left over from the following team roping. You got 'off the rope' this time, cuties!
One of my favorites.....
For those of you who have been to a rodeo, you know that in bull-riding, everything happens pretty fast, hence the blurred pictures, sorry...
Now some 'extras'.
And for barrel racing, sorry, no pictures, by that time, it was too dark for my camera. BUT!!! I have videos! Yay!!!
(Her time was 15.3.40)
And here are two bull riders...
We stayed after the rodeo was ('officially') over for the crowd. But if you wait for a few minutes, then they do practically everything over again for the re-runs and extra points! Which is why there aren't any roaring crowds most of the videos... The majority of folks most likely don't even know they do it! I'm glad!
So how did you like this? I just love rodeos!!! But, I could probably do without bulldogging...
What are your least favorite parts of the rodeo?
Who's been to one?(Or 2, or 4, or10.) ;-)
I reckon it's time to say farewell,
ta ta for now,
