First, Erin and Ashley came over to my house for dinner. We had plans to go out to dinner Tuesday before we went painting, so I was trying to save us money by just eating dinner at home. Both those lame-os cancelled on dinner and painting, so they got stuck with my cooking anyway. From there, we headed over to the UGA livestock arenas over off Milledge. As soon as we got in, we of course bought matching t-shirts.

I can' t say Erin and I really enjoyed the roping events. It was slightly sad to watch the little cow get tied up, picked up, slammed to the ground, and hog-tied (I guess he was cow-tied). We started cheering for the cows and keeping a tally of how many of the cows made it out the other side.
The last event was the bull riding. I'm going to be honest, this is the only event I knew about prior to actually going to the rodeo. That stuff is crazy! A couple of the guys made it the whole 8 seconds, which is pretty cool to watch. Definitely not a sport I care to participate in!
After the rodeo, we stuck around to wait for traffic to clear and to hang out with Gretchen while she waited for Casey. We got to sneak behind the scenes (thanks to our celebrity connection) and go see Petey, the miniature horse. He was adorable and Erin tried to horse-nap him to take home to her son.
