Two weekends ago, C and I took G to the National Western Stock Show in Denver. It was the first weekend of the show. We looked at all the exhibits, especially all the animals. There were horses, cows, chickens, bunnies, sheep, and many more. This is a big show, it goes on for two weeks (3 weekends). The horses come in by breed, and the Quarter Horses are the first to show. There was an AQHA Quarter Horse show the week before the stock show opened.
G checked out all the displays, tried to rope a cow (a dummy cow head stuck on a straw bale that ropers use to practice on), and petted the animals in the petting zoo.
Somehow I thought that we would wear G out and he would be tired, but Grandpa and Grandma were the ones that came home tired!
