Ropers are little kids, just bigger.
So. Myself and a couple friends were tired of the heat at the Exhibtion and Stampede so took a tour of all the exhibits and such. Petted a baby donkey and a lamb, almost bought a lot of stuff, and then they lost me.

I saw a roping dummy. Complete with little kids ropes. (the NICE ones).

I honestly made a B-line for the roping dummy lol. How could I resist!?

My friends found me when one of the guys there began to bug the young man doing roping demonstrations when I kept slapping profesh loops on and I was laughing my butt off.
The guy doing demonstrations assumed I had no idea what I was doing XD



(^^ sick form right there btw!)
