Earth Ranch Rodeo 2011

The big city of Earth has been having an amateur rodeo during the third weekend in July for ummm....forever. Seriously I think somewhere around 65 years.

Sandhill has put on a ranch rodeo for the last 8 years. It usually takes place during the first week in August.

This year the two functions combined. I think it's a lot of fun for the home-town crowd to be able to watch cowboys they actually know.

Reno wasn't so fond of the sirens in the parade.

Sister, on the other hand, is very fond of parades and is getting to be quite the candy-gatherer!!

Call, Trail, Tripp, and Autumn rode in the parade.

Our friend Coby Summers won top horse in the rodeo.

It was Friday and Saturday night, one go-round, with 14 different teams each night. Summer, Autumn, Hope, and I kept score. Sounds like a lot of folks but we also had Reno the whole time and Scout for some of it. Thanks to the Spangler family for entertaining her for part of that time.
