Matagorda County Fair & Rodeo

Each year we go visit my parents and go to the small town rodeo. Last year was the first year that we weren't able to go due to Troy's accident. We were determined to make it this year. Here are a few shots that I got before we left the house. I have to say...we just love the wild bull riding contest (not quite sure that's what it's called) but what it is, is 3 amateur guys get out there...wrestle a HUGE bull, and get the ropes on it while one of the guys has to ride it down to the other end of the rodeo arena. I actually have a friend that use to participate in this, he got pretty banged up by the bull, and many of the guys do. There use to be a man that was in his 60's or 70's that would participate every year...thank god he finally saw the light and retired! This year a young group of boys set the record for this competition...and it was rather exciting. I know most of my Louisiana friends don't see me as the type to love all of this...but I REALLY DO!
