Deniliquin Rodeo 2015

On Saturday I went to the Deniliquin Rodeo, which is the main town about half an hour away from where the farm is 'up north'.  My husband had shearing on for the week up there so we all went up for a holiday of sorts.  Not so much of a holiday for him as he had to shear but it was a bit of a break for me.  We went as a family to the rodeo, me and my husband and our four kids, as well as my brother in-law with his wife and their three boys, and also the other brother in-law and his son.  One of my sister in-laws was there too.  We were quite the mob.  In fact we were such a herd of people that a photographer from the local newspaper took our photo.  There were 6 adults and 8 kids and all of us with the same surname.  It was quite bizarre.

It was an incredibly hot day, 42 degrees (107F), so I bought the kids ice creams...
They made a big mess...especially my 3 year old.
My 5 year old had a go on the mechanical bull ride....
...and he actually did very well.  He even rode with one arm up like a pro!
 There were bucking broncos...
...and crazy cowboys riding bulls.
There was also steer wrestling, roping and barrel racing, where you see some awesome women racing around barrels on horses.  They sure are some gusty and gritty cowgirls!
We also had a great time together as a family.  This is my husband and my little girl.
They were enjoying each others company and the rodeo!  Love these photos.  Heart xxxx
And then later in the evening there was the steer ride.  The steer ride was an amateur event where a few different pubs in the area had random guys representing them and riding in the steer competition.  My husband and his brothers were a part of this.  I have put together a little video for your viewing pleasure, although pardon my mistake in labelling it 'Deniliquin Rodeo 2014'...it was actually 2015...I just haven't got my head around the change of year!
I hope you enjoy it as much as they enjoyed riding a steer and talking about it later! (Many beers...and I think some whiskey.. was consumed during this watching and re-watching of the videos!!)
