'til the cows come home

Every year there is a string of weeks that hits Sweetwater County. The National High School Finals Rodeo is the first to hit Rock Springs. There are thousands of high school kids and their horses coming to the area. As soon as they leave, PRCA cowboys come to town for the Red Desert Roundup and as that winds up the Sweetwater County fair fills the following week.....that's a whole lotta activity.

One of my favorite things that the town does is cow sponsorships. Businesses can buy a cow, decorate it how they want and display it around town throughout the month of rodeos and fair. There of course is a contest, for the most popular cow. This year I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at some of my favorite bovines that can be found around Rock Springs. And I of course missed getting a picture of my other favorite, so until next year these will have to tide you over!
