Getting dressed in the morning can be challenging at times but imagine putting a sweatshirt, sweatpants and underwear on an uncooperative steer.

Several three-man teams attempted the feat of fashion in the "Dress a Steer" contest on the third and final day of the 66th annual Lions Club Rodeo.

The three-day rodeo concluded this past Saturday at Red Rock Park with two side-by-side arenas showcasing the rough stock arena and timed events arena. The total payoff for this year's event was just under $50,000 in 11 events.

In the open team roping, partners TJ Brown, 31, of Tonto Basin, Ariz., and Blaine Redhorse, 21, of Rough Rock, Ariz., claimed first place with a time of 3.81 seconds, beating out 24 other teams. This was the first time the winning pair had roped together.
