April 18

History Tuesday:
This weekend my oldest participated in Mutton Bustin' and loved it. Not sure what that is? Read on!
 Mutton bustin' is a sport where children ride sheep
 Kids are required to be between 5-7 and less than 55 lbs
 The sport was introduced in the 1980s by the National Western Stock Show
 The first event was sponsored by Nancy Cervi, a rodeo queen
 There are many rodeos and shows that now have mutton bustin' as part of the events
 Kids rarely get hurt because they are wearing protective vests and helmets
My son fully enjoyed himself, and some diluted Allergy Away kept his allergies at bay in the dusty environment!
