Friday proved to be an historic night for mutton bustin' at the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show. A five-year-old cowboy from Garrison put up the best score for mutton bustin' in the history of the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo.
You couldn't have scripted the final night of mutton bustin' at the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show any better. On a night that saw the best scores of the 3 nights of riding, Kaleb Eddings of Nacogdoches was holding on to the lead with a score of 82 points with one rider to go.
Night number two of the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show featured 10 more cowboys and cowgirls trying for the top ride in the KICKS 105 Mutton Bustin' competition, sponsored by Deep East Texas Electric Co-op.
They rode frontways, sideways, and even backwards. Night number one of mutton bustin' at the Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show produced some highly entertaining rides as 10 area youngsters held on to the wool as long as they could.
The Nacogdoches Pro Rodeo and Steer Show is set to get underway Thursday and runs through Saturday night. The rodeo gets underway at 7:30 p.m., but get there early to see one of the most entertaining events.

It's always such a great treat to watch the little cowboys and cowgirls compete in the mutton bustin' competition.
There were some great rides and a lot of jeans and shirts that had to make a least two runs in the washer to get clean.
