UGA Rodeo

This past weekend we went to UGA, Animal and Dairy Science Arena and watched the Great Southland Stampede Rodeo. Friday night was Are you Tough enough to .......wear Pink?? Well we were! $1 of every one that wore pink went to the Deanna Favre HOPE foundation.
 Took a friend with us, Frances Thompson, while her husband is hiking the Appalachian Trail. It was lots of fun!!





They had lots of stuff to do: there was a petting zoo for the kids with ducks and chicks, piglets, a cow, some dogs, and you could lasso catfish! You could have your picture made on Freckles the bull, buy all kinds of goodies and ride the mechanical bull.



And the rodeo was really good as well.........of course there was bull riding which is always the highlight of the rodeo. They had bronco riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, team roping, and barrel racing.





And of course there is always a clown.....John Harrison......if you look closely at the picture you will see that he is actually riding with his feet up in the air.














The students did a great job with getting this all done! Ashley Buford did a fabulous job at the Chairman!! I know that they all worked incredibly hard and very late hours to pull it off! Thanks for a fun evening of entertainment!
