Calling all kids!  Attention moms, dads, and legal guardians of little cow kids wanting to Mutton Bust.  Our Mutton Bustin' has been a great activity for those coming to the Rodeo a bit early.  If you have a child 5 years or older and 55 lbs or less, please consider signing them up in advance (click on the sheep to the left) to ensure they have a chance to ride.  The number of riders is limited!  (we only have so many of these cute little sheep to ride!) Sorry folks, Mutton Bustin' for 2016 is full up with pre-registrants. Feel free to swing by the north west corner of the spectator area a little before 6:00 p.m. each night in case someone's got a case of the cold feet!! ;)  Its gonna be a GREAT show!!
