Transcript Bnmcty tiding, bawdtacei ad item toping atejmta, font of the, lodeo* 1ka- dttlm that Houtfbniani (trie, ko- much In 1932 the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo appeared in Houston and since that time it has become a Houston tradition. As soon as tickets go on sale, Houstonians line up and buy as many as they can. Some go to watch a certain performer or band, while others like to watch all the rodeo events like bull riding and barrel racing. This year, Joe Beaver from Huntsville, Texas won the title of Ail-Around Cowboy. Part of Beaver's award was a cash prize of over $29,000, along with a championship saddle and belt buckle and a brand new pick-up truck. This is one cowboy a mamma would be proud to have. Another interesting part of the rodeo is the livestock show. Some of the best livestock in the world is sold to the highest bidder at the rodeo. At this year's junior auction many records were broken with the help of a Grand Champion steer selling for over $500,000. There was also a Grand Champion lamb that went for $165,000. Roping and raising animals are a big part of the Houtfdtt, Rodeo* Fa&l Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, but another famous event is the school art auction. In this year's contest, a colored pencil drawing of a cowboy sold for $129,000. The artwork, entitled "Welcome to My Land", was named the Grand Champion Work of Art. Hien Nguyen of Kingwood, Texas was the artist. All the fun and excitement had to end as the rodeo came to a close. Of course, there's always next year for more dreams to come true. • by Linda. Canales The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was originally called the Houston Fat Stock Show and Live Stock Exposition. The name of the rodeo did not change until 1961 when it was given its current name.
