Kids Have Fun Mutton Busting

 

At many county fairs and rodeos in the Midwest and across the United State little kids line up to ride a sheep. To protect the sheep there are weight limits, normally under 60 lbs. It’s not uncommon to see boys and girls in cowboy boots and hats as young as four years old clinging on as life depended on it.

Normally the kids don’t make it more than two seconds when they topple off. But this little girl rode like a champ and was the best I’ve ever seen.

As the announcer said “If you want something done, just get a woman” Most all the kids had fun, most dusting themselves off and giving a big smile. A few got trampled, beyond what they expected, and a hug from Mom or Dad made everything right again. Most likely they will be back in line next year.
