For us, August means the end of our summer guest ranch season, school starts and the county fair. We really enjoy fair week. There is a parade, horse show, livestock show, exhibits, rides (kids favorites) and the rodeo. Last year the Newton County Fair brought in a Little Britches Rodeo. If you think rodeos are just okay you should try watching a Little Britches competition. The rodeo consists of competitors that are 19 and younger. They do everything from mutton bust’n to bull riding (smaller version of the big guys). There is just something about watching “the youth” competing that makes it a worth while and entertaining event. I have great respect for the little guys who get out there and try.
