Niobrara County Fair Ranch Rodeo
Last weekend the county fair kicked off with a ranch rodeo. There's no team roping, barrel racing, or bronc riding in these rodeos. Well, there is, but it's in a different form than the PRCA rodeos. Instead they show off the skills that cowboys & ranch hands use day in and day out. And since most of them do this for a living it only makes sense. :)
They cut cows from the herd to load on the trailer (a LOT harder than it sounds, see how many hands are on one cow to keep her separated in the picture above?), roping cows for branding and doctoring, and a wild stampede race. There were other events, but I can't think of them right now.
Treasures by the corrals...
Jake brought me some flowers the other day. We've got wild sunflowers lining the county road right now. So beautiful!
The clouds were so amazing the other day. I got several pictures (SOOC) & they look like paintings.
Thanks for stopping by!
