When we picked up our puppy Midnight two weeks ago she was being kept in a pen in a barn. Did I tell you that there were also three horses on the other side of the barn? Absolutely gorgeous horses.
I’ve always loved horses. When I was growing up we had a cottage on my mothers family’s old farm land and when I was very young there were still horses, cows and pigs there.
I must admit that I haven’t spent much time around farm animals in a long while, but I did enjoy seeing the horses in that barn.
When I was growing up my mother used to take me to horse shows. She loved the jumping, but I was always partial to the Rodeos. I guess I loved the action and perhaps all those cute cowboys too.
In their later years my parents were winter Texans and they attended the Houston Rodeo a few times.
Did you know that the Houston Rodeo is rated as the largest rodeo in the world? Over one million people attend each year. It’s so big that each night after each days Rodeo events there’s a concert feature Country, Rock n’ Roll, Hip Hop and and Latin music stars and bands. I doubt very much that my parents ever attended any concerts, but if I got a chance to get Houston Rodeo concert tickets I’d see a band. My preference would of course be a rock band.
Have you ever been to the Houston Rodeo? Did you enjoy yourself? If you’ve been to the Rodeo did you also attend a concert?
I was looking up information on the Rodeo and this years concerts will be by Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana), Rascal Flatts, and there’s still a number of concert performers to be announced. Check it out for yourself – perhaps you’ll go to the Rodeo this March.
