Rough Riders

Traditional sports...baseball, football, basketball, soccer, etc. have not exactly caught on in our house.  Although Brian and I played sports throughout high school and I played a little in college we have not rubbed off on our children.  Instead, they have chosen to rodeo.  Yep, cowpokes.  We're raising little Oklahoma cowboys and a cowgirl and we couldn't be more thrilled about it.

The boys started to ride horses when they were four years old and Avenn will probably start in the next year or so when she is three.  Somehow they got the rodeo bug and started by doing the calf scramble where they chase a calf with a million other kids trying to take a ribbon off the poor calf's tail.  Now, they are official members of the Lil Rough Riders Association. Rogan does mutton bustin' (he rides sheep) and Brice rides calves.

They had their first official event last night....
