So… another long day, though very enjoyable and actually COOL.  Yes, folks, I said, COOL.  99.9% of Kids’ Rodeo days have been unbearably HOT, dry, dusty, sweaty days, but not today!

If you wanted Longmire Days photos, you’ll have to wait… and, yes, I know I still have questions to answer from the other day… but let’s do one thing at a time!

First, Quinlan and Jaxon were entered in the costume contest.

Then came the Stick Horse Race.

Next in line?  The kids roping.  Waylon was the only one entered here… and I have cute photos that I can’t share (which is way too bad… I have the BEST photo!)  By golly, that little cowboy took second place in roping!!!

Goat tail untying and mutton busting were also entered, but with no measurable results!

At the very end, prizes are awarded.

Here’s Quinlan getting the prize for the costume contest.  Jaxon had already gone home.

Immediately after receiving your prize, you sign some thank you cards for the prize donors.  We try to teach them right!

I have a great photo of Waylon’s face when he received his New Rope!  It’s amazing.

Finally, Little Miss Lorelei, relaxing in a borrowed chair, can’t wait for next year, when an unsteady little filly will be in the Stick Horse Race herself!

  1. Boy Howdy! you all had such a great day. I’m glad the temperature was
    cool for all the fun activities. Costumes, stick-horse race, little cowpokes roping contest – :-):-):-) and prizes for all. I liked the Dr. Seuss hat and socks on the horse, too. Such “down home” fun.
