Of cows and men

I just came back from the rodeo! I must say, this was by far the BEST rodeo I have ever been to. Okay, a little disclaimer: this is the ONLY rodeo I've ever been to. But still, it was fun. The rodeo shows themselves weren't too compelling. Afterall, how many ways can you rope a cow? Once you've seen one cow get roped, you've pretty much seen them all. And true, some of the events were a little strange (some might even say cruel). For instance there was one event which I've dubbed the 'rope and grope' that involves roping a cow, jumping on her, and milking her. The winner is, of course, the cowboy who gets a certain amount of milk before all the other cowboys have finished groping their own newly roped cows.

Besides the official "events", there was plenty to do at the fairgrounds, which can be best described as the PNE, except a bit smaller, a tad more rundown, and far more tacky with cowboy hats and big buckles galore. In short, the fairground was nothing to write home or blog about.

Why, surrey of course! Where else could you expect to see animals get wrestled to the ground by stocky men wearing big hats? Good times...good times.
