— Jonathan Garrett, 9, lassos a steer decoy while his sister Kaylee, 6, watches from behind at the Limestone County Sheriff’s Exceptional Rodeo on Sunday. Parents and children with special needs came Sunday to the rodeo arena after the event was rescheduled due to a tornado in late May. Children and adults rode horses and tractors and met farm animals at the petting zoo.
