Sunday Photos - Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium


One of the reasons we took our trip to New Mexico last week was to attend the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium held at the Ruidoso Downs race track. What a fun event!! :)
There were vendors galore and almost constant live entertainment in the grandstand area and the big tent but my favorite things were all outside.
One of these was the Chuck Wagon Cookoff, named "Best Chuck Wagon Contest" for 2012 by True West Magazine. It was VERY a little cold and windy the day we were there but the wagons were awesome and these hardy men and women were cookin' up some mighty fine-lookin' grub!


This barrel was identified as a butter churn. You could make a LOT of butter with this!!


Don't you just love this guy?!? He was so friendly too, lots of kids (and adults too) were lined up to pet him!


A big thrill for us was getting to attend a Craig Cameron demonstration. What a neat guy, he is one of our favorite horse trainers!


We really enjoyed the Symposium and look forward to going back sometime! :)

Looks like fun, Candy. I like the first picture and edit the best.

My Mom has a cousin that is a Chuck Wagon/ Dutch Oven type cook. I would love to try some of that grub.
