The “they” in question were 60 or so tiny cowboys and cowgirls who entertained a large crowd at the elementary gym during the 34th annual Coahoma Kindergarten Rodeo.

There were clowns and bronc riders and ropers and racers and just about everything you expect to see at a grown-up rodeo. Stick horses were substituted for actual livestock, but that did nothing to lessen the entertainment factor.
