SAN ANGELO, TX — Cotton Langley scored an 86 on a sheep in the Sonora Bank Mutton Bustin' during the 6th performance of the 2020 San Angelo rodeo the afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 9. In this video, he explains his secrets to success.
Mutton Bustin’ is the art of children riding sheep for fun and prizes at American rodeos. No mutton bustin’ event is better than what happens in San Angelo. At the San Angelo rodeo, the contestants must be older than 4 years old and weigh less than 50 pounds. The child “saddles up” on a sheep that runs out into the arena. Announcer Boyd Palhamus scores each ride. Generally, the contestant that holds on and atop (or on the side or hanging below) the sheep the longest will win that night’s performance.
