Hamel Rodeo

Rodeo & horses, Hamel

“Well, I never,” as my great grandma Angie would say. This wasn’t my first rodeo. It also wasn’t the first time I’d seen bulls, calves, and horses in roping, barrel racing or bull riding events. Neither was it unusual to see Border Collies; after all, we had three dogs of that breed growing up (and incidentally all inherited the same name). My cousins Karen and Mark joined me at the “World’s Championship Hamel Rodeo” in Hamel, Minn.

It was, however, the first time I’ve seen Capuchin monkeys riding Border Collies that are herding sheep. And, that indeed, is a sight to see.
