It’s Saturday night in Texas and we’re at the famous Tejas rodeo, sat in a
floodlit, dusty stadium surrounded by cowboys on horseback and longhorn
bulls. The Stetson-wearing audience whoop their appreciation as the Mutton
Bustin competition is announced, and the presenter hesitantly checks if the
next contestant is from “London, Texas or London, England?” before the
arena door flies open. My 7-year-old daughter bursts forth, determinedly
hugging onto the back of a woolly sheep as it races around the arena,
cheered on by the 1000-strong crowd!
