Rodeo fans were treated to the excitement and fun of an old time rodeo last Friday and Saturday during the 4th annual Redneck Rodeo at the Wallowa County Fairgrounds in Enterprise.

The rodeo featured bull and saddle bronc riding, calf and team roping and barrel racing for adult participants.

The junior division (age 14 and under) included steer riding, barrels, break away roping, musical ropes and the always hilarious hide drag race.

Kids also got into the act participating in the chicken scramble, pig scramble. calf riding, peewee barrels and mutton busting.

Rough stock was provided by John Ely of Asotin.

"The rodeo went very well," said rodeo co-organizer Evelyn Lovell."Attendance was definitely up over last years event," she added. The rodeo was held in conjunction with the Wallowa County Fair for the first time this year.
