Sunday at the Nebraska State Fair

Playing some catch up here. I didn’t think I should leave out Sunday at the Nebraska State Fair, since it was just as much fun as Saturday.

A lot of great kid activities –

The big map of Nebraska was a big hit, so was getting to be with friends.

We learned that the elevation change from eastern Nebraska to western Nebraska is greater than the elevation change from Omaha to the East coast.

I thought this was a big hit too.

Three people on horses had to get 10 calves into the next pin as fast as they could.team sortingsteer coming at you The catch is the cattle were numbered 0-9, and the cowboys had to get them in order starting with a random number they were given right before their time started. cattle sorting competition It was intense, but those horses and riders were skilled and fun to watch.

I’d recommend you check it out at the fair next year.
