Mutton Bustin and Bulls on the beach

Mutton Busting Saturday as storms approached


Mutton busting is an event held at rodeos similar to bull riding or bronc riding, in which children ride or race sheep

The weather during the Mutton Bustin competition was getting a little sketchy around 4 O’clock, the starting time! But a few rain drops and a little thunder did not scare off a future cowboy or cowgirl. With almost 45 entries all weighing in under 55 pounds the 5th annual Mutton Bustin event finished up in a hurry but the organizers were able get every rider through the gate. 

The photo above was taken before the event started, so little did I know she would be the girls Mutton Bustin Champ and took home the first place trophy with a score of ninety. The Boys best score was 85 and he was the last to run in the event just as the rains really started to fall.

 With check-in time starting at 1:30 and the event not starting until 4pm parents had plenty of time to suit up the kids with protective vest and helmets, bandannas, and pin that souvenir entry number to their back. I was told a total of 44 kids signed up for the event.  About 15 Minutes until the start a little thunder from lightning in the distance was heard off to west and south west apparently a small thunder storm had popped up and made its way toward chalk mountain.  

With the storm approaching quickly the national anthem was played courtesy of a Leann Rimes recording and a prayer was recited then suddenly the sponsored gates came open and parents were on their feet with a camera in their hand taking advantage of the ultimate Facebook bragging rights photo of their kid gripping the sides of a sheep twice their size and in full canter.

    I have acquired some new things from your site about computers. Another thing I have always presumed is that computers have become a product that each home must have for a lot of reasons. They offer convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, tune in to music and perhaps watch television shows. An innovative approach to complete most of these tasks is by using a laptop. These pcs are portable ones, small, effective and convenient.
