In spite of the glowering unseasonable weather and damp winds, the rodeo is back. Situated on the grounds of the Valencia County Fairgrounds and Sheriff''s Posse arena in Belen , the sea of white trucks and horse trailers give a good idea of how popular the event is, come rain or come shine. May of the participants come from neighboring states but the vast majority are from New Mexico.
Pictures are as follows: #1 - Overall view of the fairgrounds.
#2 - The Sheriff's Posse 's Cafe, Bingo Hall and Dance Palace.
#3 - Cowgirls arriving with dog
#4 - Horses and dog all tied to their temporary home.
Stay tuned; tomorrow there will be some more general views and following that some real cowboy action shots.
