Last week I got the call to go down to Sikeston, Mo., for the Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo. Muddy just doesn’t cover the conditions after a week of nearly daily rain here in Southeast Missouri so the bareback riding competition was interesting to say the least. I left the arena covered from head to toe in what I fervently hope was mud but the simply gorgeous light, jumping horses, falling riders and flying mud made it all worth it.
