Rimrock Rodeo Finals for 2012

With a slight chill in the air, the rodeo animals were at their best for the season finals.
There were the gazelle sheep, at least a few, jumping at new heights. while the steers managed to
elude quite a few ropes with the calves trying to follow their example. The bulls were in their glory as they twisted, twirled and kicked faster then ever, trying to unseat their riders. It was the energy found as the rentless summer sun set sooner as days get shorter.
These young mutton busters were very proud of their new blet buckles.
