Aug 03 - As part of the Old Spanish Days Fiesta, they had a Fiesta Rodeo and Horse Show at the Earl Warren Showgrounds.  Ken and I decided to go to the Rodeo in the morning before the Fiesta Parade in the afternoon.  (Actually, I decided we would go!!)

Entrance to the Showgrounds.

It turned out the Rodeo participants were all young ladies -- teenage and below.  I missed pictures of the teenager events when they were "Bull Dogging" and Hog Tying  the goats.  I had never seen that before at a Rodeo.

Here are a couple of pictures of  young cowgirls (below age 12) "hog tying" a goat.  Notice, the goat is already tied to a stake!

Another young lady catches the goat!

And hogties him!  The goats were not too happy!!  Baa!  Baa!  Baa!

After the goat events, the teen cowboys came in for the Calf Roping event.

Cowboys will be boys!!

Calf Roping!

Hog Tying!

After the Rodeo, we went to the Old Spanish Days Fiesta Parade.
