    so my first funny story

    so my first heifer i brought to the county fairs name was rosy after a week of halter breaking her she was renamed as rodeo rosy because i was walking her in the barnyard and we have a big pile of manure and she took of and i let go so she started bucking like a rodeo bull.

    Back when I was in HS and FFA.. I was gleaning a corn field , putting the missed ears in a gunny sack, I tied the sack on the saddle and secured it with a large horse blanket pin. Started to trot off and the horse exploded under me. bucking and twirling. I fell off but kept ahold of the reins. he kept bucking.. I figure out the poor horse had gotten poked by the pin that had opened up when he trotted.
    Well I thought this was a funny story until I read what I typed.

    Our county fair wanted to do something fun for the cattle people like they do for the horses so we have a costume contest the first year an older guy who owns the county feed store brought out a calf in a hola scirt and he was in a coconut bra and was playing a ukulele my grandma put that picture in my memory book so I can never forget it.
    Somehow I still did better than him. I was dressed up as Mrs Paul Bunyan with a apron and hat with fake flowers.
    My cow had a blue sheet with puffy paint that said Mrs. Babe the big blue ox and she had a matching hat with a chin strap on.
