The Professional Bull Riders Show begins when the house lights go out. There’s a boom a bang and a pop! It’s all enough to make you jump out of your skin! But that’s only the beginning…wait a minute!
Locked inside the Petting Farm this little guy is so young. He’s thinking Mom and Dad just dropped him off at day care!
Babies of any kind are cute, doesn’t matter if they are black, white, yellow, brown, two-legged, four-legged, fly, swim, walk or run!
I love them all.
P.S. Before anyone gets upset, Mom and Dad were close-by just beyond my viewfinder.
At the National Western Stock Show, the exhibits go on and on. My all time favorite place to hang out is at the Petting Farm. Here they bring in baby animals for everyone to enjoy.
Of course there is a proper warning at the gate, the owner is not responsible for damage to one’s clothes, shoes, etc. No worries, clothes and shoes can be washed or replaced.
Wandering around inside is worth the risk considering the precious memories one makes.
The National Western Stock Show brings in approximately 17,000 animals to the Denver Coliseum each year. Walking around at first is a shock to the olfactory system but after a few minutes one actually gets used to it!
I enjoy watching the grooming of the farm animals. They take amazing care to clean, brush and dry enormous cows and bulls. Of course it’s all part of the show. Hundreds of thousands of dollars will trade hands this month as deals are made for stock.
It’s not a world that I am used to, but I find it most interesting.
The little sheep face sticks out in the crowd.
May your New Year be prosperous, happy and bright!
This guy thought he was a tough guy. He really didn’t like the Draft Horses pulling carriages on 16th St. Mall. He barked and barked and nearly pulled his owner to the ground.
“Let me at ’em” he seemed to be saying.
So much for Santa Dogg’s Holiday Spirit!
While having dinner, this little girl was finding it difficult to pull herself away from the window. She, like I was enjoying watching the world go by on the 16th Street Mall.
Patient giant posed for photographers between rides.
Lit up floats lined the streets created ahs from the crowds.
