Learning the ropes.

Sunday was the last day of our county fair. I had some free time so I wondered down to the horse arena to see what was going on.

The under 9 ropers were warming up. Some of these little guys were so small their hats were bigger than they were, but they could swing a rope!

The announcer was having a heck of a time trying to get them to line up. Anyone who has worked with young children will know kids tend to like to bunch up, not line up. I wonder if it some kind of herding instinct, safer in a bunch than in a line, you know?

Anyway, they got sorted out so they could practice. Please excuse the audio on the following two videos, we were having some wind off the ocean .

Video number one...... The wind up!

I don't know what he was waiting for, he wasn't going to get any closer, but he had that rope going!

Video number two....Girl Power!

Taking life by the horns.
