Crosby Rodeo show set records

Livestock Auction raises $456K+

Abby Brady shows Harry, Grand Champion Steer bought by R L Doskocil, Inc. for $14,000, a record.

This year, cowboy skills like team roping, bronco bustin’ and bull dogging, with some bull fighting and a little bull riding on Saturday, were played out inside the arena. The roping skills displayed were excellent.

Rider Kiesner shows us the Texas Jump Rope made popular by Will Rogers as he roped, twirled 6 shooters and showed whips cracking tricks to the crowd.

Considering that there are now eight other rodeos simultaneous north of here taking their toll of cowboys to other prizes, a fine display of the cowboy sports.

Although official tallies are still being counted, over $456,000 all in all went into the Livestock auction. Above, Harper Loggins shows a Grand Champion Turkey with his little sister while dad auctioneers. Chalie’s Ice House of Highlands bought the turkey for $5,000.
