WEEKENDING




















one of our favorite things to do in January is to spend a day at the national western stock show in denver.
this year was so enjoyable,
we 
- watched sheep judging
- miniature cow auction
[ these animals go for thousands of dollars .
last night the grand champion  steer sold for 106 thousand dollars ]
- scottish highland cows
- long horn steers
- horses
- mules
- walked through the old  stock yard pens
- cattle dogs perform
- children's stick rodeo
- talked with several out of town visitors
- watched some crazy informercial ;)

thank you denver for another great stock show.

LOVE the photos! Your earrings are great. I told Jeff about the 106,000. His reply? "That's a lot of bull."
