Riata Ranch Rodeo

A couple weeks ago, the Riata Ranch hosted a ranch rodeo. The ranch here was represented by my husband, the Boss, and the other ranch hand who lives here. They had a friend who filled out the team. Me and the kids watched the action…ranch rodeo

Beer racing! A can of beer on top each post, and one more rider than beers. Whoever gets a beer at the end wins 100$. :)

Wild-cow milking is always a crowd-pleaser! Depending on the rodeo, the rules can be a bit different. This time, they had two chances to rope the cow, then they had to milk her into a bottle. All 4 feet had to be on the ground when they were milking, so they couldn’t just rope her and lay ‘er down. Somehow they ended up taking turns hauling on her tail – being drug around that way – but they finally did get some milk! :) It was really gettin’ a bit western for a minute there. My kids said: “Mom, they might have not won the rodeo, but they won first place for an interesting show!” 😀 😀

Not sure that was what they were going for, but hey…

 

Wild-cow milking... always a crowd favorite! :D
