After seeing as many carnival activities as we could handle, we went to the animal barns.
There were several activities going on outside the barns.
Old equipment display.
During a heavy rain, we went inside this show barn to see what was going on.
There was sheep herding competition.
It was interesting to watch the difference between an old, well-trained dog and a new one that was being trained.
It was still raining after we watched several sheep herding competitions, so we went next door to the horse barn.
We have a few granddaughters who would have enjoyed this barn.
These are curly all over when they get their winter coat of hair.
When the rain stopped, we went outside to watch a few working horse demonstrations.
We had a delicious lunch in one of the many sit-down restaurants on the grounds.
We chose one inside the agriculture building.
Then it was time for the afternoon rodeo in the Grandstand.
The first event. I think it is called saddle bronc riding. Can you see the expression on the rider’s face? 🙂
When we saw him hopping on one foot, we thought he was injured, and then saw that his boot had come off.
It had stopped raining by this time, but we were still glad that our seats were under roof.
This looks like it would ruin your back for life.
