Originall posted on my Denver Real Estate Blog: National Western Stock Show
Howdy Folks! It’s just about mid January here in Denver and that can only mean one (of many) things. It’s Denver stock show time. Actually, it is more than halfway though the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo here in Denver, which is why you need to go and check it out. If you have never been to a rodeo or up close with real livestock and cowboys, then you are in for a real treat!
This is the real deal. These animals are huge, beautiful and a bit intimidating to a city slicker like myself. Never fear, there is always the smaller animals for the kids of the more intimidated big kids. As far as the rodeo goes, these are the best of the best competing here. There are rodeo’s for all types of fun, including ProRodeo featuring some of the world’s best bronco and bull riders. This is a thrill to see live if you haven’t ever seen it. The power of the animals is stunning and the courage and strength of the riders is awesome. The skills of the horseback riders is amazing and of course, the clowns. They bring us a laugh but also serve a very vital role in the protection of the cowboys. Their courage behind the mask is incredible.
The stock show has something entertaining for everyone. Cowboy or not, it is a lot of fun!
