10 East Texas cowboys and cowgirls came out to night number one of the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show to try their hand at mutton busting. The 3-7 year olds did their best to hang on for dear life while perched on the back of a sheep.  

Sometimes the sheep would exit the chute in an all-out sprint, other times they took more of a leisurely stroll.  But, when it was all said and done, Aaron Castillo of Nacogdoches was scored with the best overall ride with a mark of 86 points. Take a look at some of the pictures from Thursday night's ride.
