Let’s Rodeo!

The 4th in Ten Sleep means parade.
The 4th in Ten Sleep means street dance.
The 4th in Ten Sleep means RODEO!
Now I’ve taken photos of the parade every year but this one because…
We were Grand Marshals.
A friend took this one…

There’s me and my boys, and Victoria and Vernon… unseen is Johnny who is carrying our “Greet Ranch A-A 1909/2009” flag.
Seconds later all our horses spooked at the applause announcing our centennial of ranching.
It could have been embarrassing.
Thank goodness it wasn’t!
Here we are… all aboard… our reputation intact!

I’ve never taken my camera to the street dance…
Never even thought about it…
Don’t need to record most of what goes on there!
But the rodeo…
ah…
rodeo…
It’s the kids…

(Sam won the mutton busting belt buckle… he’s the kid in the helmet while his older brother lays on the ground.  Way ta go, Sam!)
It’s seeing the kids you’ve known since birth do crazy things like the wild horse race…

And winning…
Though it cost B. 7 stitches…

And it is visiting with my friends the entire time.
It is just FUN.
Tomorrow…
More rodeo!
