The World's Toughest Rodeo is in town this weekend at Xcel Energy Center.
On Thursday night, 45 kids competed in the Mutton Bustin' competition.
In between rounds, a dynamic duo, a cowboy monkey and his border collie named Ben, rounded up the sheep.
The main events start Friday.
It runs through Sunday with the action starting at 7:30 p.m. each night.
