Mutton Bustin

Date: Aug 16, 2019
Forget about bull riding and barrel racing — one of the highlight events of the fair is mutton bustin! If you’re unfamiliar with mutton bustin, it’s an event where children ranging from ages four through seven, weighing at 60 pounds or less, do their best to ride and hold onto a runaway sheep for as long as they can. The children wear helmets and safety gear and after a few seconds the kids usually face-plant in the dirt — and then dust the dirt off their jeans and give the crowd a thumbs up.
