Mamas if you don't want your babies to grow up to be cowboys, you best keep them away from Mutton Bustin'. Sure, it looks innocent enough, but does anybody really know how many cowboys got their first real taste of rodeo riding from a sheep?

Eight young cowboy and cowgirl wanna be's will get their chance in the arena each evening as they mount their trusty sheep and head for the thrill of their young lives!
