DRY FORK -- Mutt'n Bustin; Pee-wee Poles; Goat Ty'n; Calf Rid'n, when you hear those events, you know that tough kids are out to show their stuff. In Carroll County last Saturday they were at the Morris Rodeo Ranch for the second event of the Junior Rodeo Season.

It was a cloudy night, rain threatened, but that was all it did. The only thunder came when the gates blew open and the bulls gave it all they had to put the finest junior bull riders in the county off their backs and into the dirt.

Walkin' Tacos filled the stomachs of fans that filled the stands as kids as young as four years old competed in several events on a perfect spring evening.
