A little dirt is bound to fl y during the double-mugging event where a steer is sorted, roped, and then must be laid down. Then, three legs are tied together securely, and the steer must stay down for six seconds or else the team receives a no time. The action-packed pasture doctoring is meant to imitate the process of doctoring a sick steer out in the open. A steer is once again sorted out and pushed across a line where it is headed and heeled. Then, an “x” must be placed on either fl ank using a chalk marker. Each event tests the contestants, and we all know that working with live animals adds in another challenging factor.
