RODEO TIME: Rockin Robbie Hodges (2010 Wrangler National Finals Barrel Man) is expected to electrify the crowd at the Hood County Stampede and there are two chances to meet him before the rodeo.

PRCA barrel-man Rockin Robbie Hodges will be in the house along with professional bullfighter Wayne Ratley as they gear up for Saturday’s Hood County Stampede with appearances at Barons Creek Tasting Room and Wine Lounge and the OZ Coffee Bar in Granbury.

Both rodeo athletes are expected to be making appearances at Barons (115 E. Bridge) at 5:30 today, and tomorrow they will appear at the OZ Coffee Bar at 112 N. Houston from 4-6 p.m.

The public is encouraged to drop by for a visit to meet both men and to get autographs.
