Day of Fun at the Little Snake River Rodeo

Day of Fun at the Little Snake River Rodeo

Each year, the Lions Club sponsors the Little Snake River rodeo at the Russell Community Park, near Dixon.  The kids’ events, including mutton busting, chicken chasing and pig catching are a highlight in our family. It is also the source of our pork, since we feed out the pigs that the grandkids and their cousins catch, and enjoy the locally grown meat in the winter months. We give the chickens to the neighbor, since our Border collies mistake them for lunch.

    You guys at Ladder Ranch should know John -or Jack- Boehm. He is my best friend. He said one time he caught a pig, and the next time he came you guys had slaughtered it for pork.
