    Mutton Bustin’ has a long tradition.Its probably a good question, why sheep. Sheep are very intelligent animals.
    I suspect the whole endeavor is as hard on the sheep as it is on the child rider. Actually, I think the adults get more of a thrill out of this then either the sheep or the children. A lot of the kids are scared. But, its said it build self esteem and confidence, – ah, certainly not on the sheeps part.
