so the bbq last night wasn't really a bbq, but the rodeo was definitely a rodeo. i'd never been to a rodeo before, so i wasn't sure what to expect. turns out it's a bunch of smaller events, most of which involve some form of pseudo-animal-cruelty. bull-riding, bronco-riding, sheep-riding (for 4 year old kids), carriage racing, steer wrestling, and steer catching were some of the events that i remember. the steer wresting was pretty impressive.. they released a steer and a cowboy on a horse had to sort of jump off the horse and grab the steer by the horns and wrestle it to the ground, while it was trying to run away.

there was also an event near the intermission where they invited all the kids who were 8 years or less from the audience (there were literally hundreds!) to try and grab a ribbon off of a calf (or some smaller animal.. not too sure what it was). there was like a stampede of these little kids and the calf, and i'm amazed that nobody got hurt.
