As a life long B'hammer and a lover of the Lynden fair, I was sickened by the addition of the rodeo. The fair has always been a place to go and enjoy the wonderful animals the amazing 4H groups have spent so much time and TLC before their show! A rodeo, in my eyes, is just a form of animal abuse and not a healthy way to expose children to as a form of entertainment! It is not funny to see bronco riding, roping of steer and I most certainly don't think it is "cute" to see children riding sheep either. Let's get back to where the fair was a place to see animals being loved and cared for by these wonderful children!
