Bruneau Junior Rodeo

Posted Monday, October 5, 2009, at 3:14 PM

Again, Bruneau has out done itself.  I'm tellin' ya, if you never go, you are missing out!  Everyone knows I love rodeo, and everyone should know I love children.  So, what better for me to photograph than a Junior Rodeo.  Not much.  These are kids from all around the area, and a great time is had by all.  Competition is a good learning experience, but fun competition is the best!  Bruneau is serious about their rodeos, and I don't know of many better.  These pictures are in the order I took them.

The youngest ones get a chance at dummy ropin'.  All "Under 5" kids got buckles.  Very exciting for them!

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
