California Mid State Fair, Part 2

The fair includes all the rodeo competitions one would expect at a fair in the Western US. The local favorite event, though, is limited to small children:

These sheep aren't sheared in advance, so there's plenty of fleece to grab. No rope, saddle, or bridle on the critter, but protective gear required for riders. This event is a laugh riot. Between kids squealing and sheep baa-ing and parents cheering, it's good noisy fun (for everyone except the sheep - look at the determined scowl in the one in the photo).

This is the best non-weaving photo I've seen in a LOOOONG time!
