The annual tradition lets kids have their big moment inside the Wild West Arena while holding on to a sheep.
Contestants were judged by Miss Rodeo Nebraska.
For some, it was their first time participating.
"Well I have really long legs so I'm going to try to wrap my legs around it. Like I see the sheep running really fast and am I like oh my," said Makenna Nelson.
One couple came as far as California to see their grandchildren hit the arena.
