Texas Ranch Roundup Has Much to Offer

- This weekend the spirit of Texas is on display as the annual Texas Ranch Roundup kicked off Friday.

The roundup brings working cowboys from around the lone star state to Wichita Falls to enjoy the competition in their day to day duties, from roping and riding, to cooking out of a chuckwagon.

Whether competing or just watching, the Roundup is an event the whole family can enjoy.

It's the 33rd Texas Ranch Roundup, a time to celebrate Texas culture by highlighting the everyday skills of ranch hands. The ranch roundup has become a tradition for many families.

Ross Tucker, Ranch Roundup shopper said, "We always come to the Ranch Roundup. We used to go to the rodeo every year. My parents used to have a booth here and so it's almost been a tradition."

A tradition started by Lottie Cogdell's family. Her uncle, Tom Morehouse, was one of the founders of the Ranch Roundup and is being honored this year with the Trailblazer Award.

Lottie Cogdell, Ranch Roundup spectator said, "It's kinda like a family reunion at times especially this year because so much of our family is coming in for this special occasion so it's fun to get to come and catch up."

The Ranch Roundup also brings in fans because it offers a more realistic competition than your average rodeo.

Jerry Eades, Ranch Roundup spectator said, "Out here you know you got actual ranch hands competing and you get you a lot of good working horses and I like that aspect of it. The ranch and events are more day to day work and the actual cowboy you get to see what they do on a day to day basis."
