3 (2)During a heavy rain, we went inside this show barn to see what was going on.

There was sheep herding competition.

3 (3)It was interesting to watch the difference between an old, well-trained dog and a new one that was being trained.

4It was still raining after we watched several sheep herding competitions, so we went next door to the horse barn.

5 (1)We have a few granddaughters who would have enjoyed this barn.

We chose one inside the agriculture building.

5 (11)Then it was time for the afternoon rodeo in the Grandstand.

5 (12)The first event. I think it is called saddle bronc riding. Can you see the expression on the rider’s face? 🙂

5 (17)It had stopped raining by this time, but we were still glad that our seats were under roof.
