Cute duo set to ride high

THE Keogh kids McKinley and Billy will strut their rodeo stuff at the upcoming Cowboys Fundraiser Championship Bull ride.

The tough twosome has been practising for weeks on their tame home sheep named "Lamby", in anticipation for the sheep ride which will be held May 9.

Five-year-old McKinley, who wants to be a hair dresser like her mum, says she will be wearing her special pink rodeo hat on the night.

"With sparkles," she added.

"The sheep ride is open to kids aged three and up but they need to bring their own helmet," event organiser Scott Keogh said.

All hoping to enter are asked to arrive early to the event which is second on the program for the night.

"It's always a popular event so we need to make sure everyone is there so they can get signed," Mr Keogh said.

"There is a prize which will be awarded later in the night so we are expecting a huge amount of participation."

Along with the bucking sheep, a poddy calf and steer ride will also take place, for the older kids.

Brave siblings McKinley and Billy will also entertain revellers as they take on the unridden bucking pony "Wild Felina".

The family-friendly event comes equipped with rides, a mechanical bull, fairy floss and music until late.

A bar and canteen will operate on the night.
