Kids Join Mutton Bustin' Mania

CORPUS CHRISTI - It was mutton bustin' mania on the Bayfront Saturday.

Just in case you haven't heard of it, mutton bustin' is basically bull riding for the kids. They hop on a sheep and hold on for as long as they can.

And you better believe the competition was fierce. It may look easy, but these sheep put up a pretty good fight.

We spoke with one woman who drove her grand kids down all the way from Bastrop so they could participate.

"We got up at 4:00 AM this morning, rode into Corpus to make sure they could ride. This is there first, and one they did very well. I was scared," said grandmother, Mary Johson.

This is an annual event that's part of the Buc Days Rodeo.
