The girls and I have started homeschool co-op. DD1 is in the Kindergarten class while I co-teach the preschool class where DD2 & DD3 attend. Two weeks ago, at our cowboy theme class, we had a real-life cowboy come. One of the dads is a real-life rancher. His "day" job is as a big animals vet but he also participates in rodeos. He joins team roping events. He brought along a roping dummy, pictured here, which he let the kids play with. He made it look so easy but it really wasn't. LOL!
Their family breeds quarter horses. Had we more space, they would have probably brought one. The kids did get to try on breeches and vests and boots. They also had fun playing with the ropes. :)
