We had the chance last week to head to a rodeo with the girls. While we really enjoy the bull riding, this was a different type of rodeo. They called it a working ranch rodeo. As such, they had calf branding, cattle sorting, cow tying events. Our favorite of all the events was the wild cow milking. They had to catch(?)the cow, and get her to hold still enough that they could milk her into a narrow necked bottle, and then get it to a certain destination before two minutes were up. Quite diverting actually.
