We did a goat rodeo thing which had me in stitches. All these goats in a pen weeing and pooing everywhere shamelessly (the aroma was lovely!) and then we had teams of 3 to catch, turn them over and then brand them (with a cold iron, not a real one) Highly amusing to witness although quite sad at one point as they let out a tiny baby one and it was bleating and crying and just stood there n wet himself
After that entertaining episode we all then had a go at lassooing proper cowboy style and learnt how to crack a whip which was pretty cool. You had to break the sound barrier by flicking it so hard and fast (all in the wrist!) and very tricky to master, but felt very empowering and dominatrix-like!
For the evening entertainment they had one of those mechanical bulls but it was seriously brutal and extreme! I got flipped off on the 2nd buck as my legs slipped but I refused to let go with my hands resulting in what I imagine was an impressive somersault off the front. Following this were many beers and games getting crazier and crazier until a Canadian guy ended up naked on the table... yup, definitely time for bed.
