Kids will learn about Bill Pickett who invented bulldogging, as Tommy does a magic trick with steer's skull. They will learn about Nat Love, an expert roper, as Tommy does a rope magic trick. The kids will also learn about Mary Fields, who delivered mail out West, as Tommy does a magic trick from a mail package.
