Work, wit and wisdom from Ohio's best visual team

Bustin’ their chops

North Coast, September 1, 2013

Down in wild and wooly Burbank, Ohio, Lisa found a bunch of real cowboys and cowgirls — that is, boys and girls in the chronological sense. And as for cows … well, sheepishly we have to admit, maybe not so much. Lisa writes:

The wee wrangler is bursting out of the chute strapped to a wooly rocket. With a white-knuckled grip of a future bull rider, Riley, now 6, is learning the art of hanging on for dear life. To a Suffolk sheep, that is.  Riley is taming the flying fleece at the Mutton Bustin’ School held at Buckin’ Ohio at Creek Bend Ranch in Burbank, Ohio.
