Manure on Concrete

Many Kansas Citians are embarrassed by our agrarian roots. Not me. I love rubbing shoulders with ranchers at the American Royal's annual exhibition in Hale Center. The powerful odor of manure and dust is like perfume (at least when I'm not in Dodge City). And the process of grooming cattle for their turn at the livestock show remains one of the oddest rituals I've encountered.

    I have a friend who is showing at least one horse down there.
