Triple R Bull Co. out of Boonsboro, Md., hosted an entertaining two-hour rodeo with bull riders, barrel racing and children’s sheep riding.

An animated crowd of more than 500 watched with shock and awe as bulls with names like Cactus Juice, Despicable Me and Fuzzy put up a fight.

Ten professional riders tried to balance and hold on with one hand for eight seconds.

The 68th Fauquier County Fair continues through Saturday, July 14.
