The Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show is this Thursday through Saturday at the Nacogdoches Exposition and Civic Center.  The rodeo gets underway nightly at 7:30, but make sure you get there at least a half hour before start time because one of the most popular events at the rodeo gets underway at 7 each night.  Yes, we're talking about the mutton bustin'.

Each night 10 youngsters between the ages of 3-7 will be trying their best to hang on to sheep for as long as they can.  Registrations have been going on for the past month at Boot Barn in Nacogdoches and today we drew for our 30 riders.  There are quite a few more than 30 kids that get their names put into registration box, so, unfortunately not everyone who registers is selected to ride.
