Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo

Well this weekend is the beginning of the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo. It lasts for the whole week and has lots of cool stuff going on. There is a Sheep Shearing Demo and Competition on Sunday, January 30. There are Percheron horses and rodeo horses, and horses for sale and cattle and sheep and probably the petting zoo too. The Sheep Dog Trials are on Monday afternoon at the Civic Center and a few of us are going there to spin outside the arena. It is always fun because lots of people go to see those wonderful sheep dogs do their stuff and there we are doing our spinning of wool, that comes from the sheep that the dogs are herding. The schools usually bring the children to the Stock Show also and we get to show the children how yarn is made from our spinning wheels. It is a lot of fun. If you are in the area do come to the Civic Center and see the Stock Show, you will love it.
