Goat roping, a long-time Western tradition, is taking off on a larger scale than ever before. Goat roping has been a staple among the ropiest of competitors and children in team roping alike for years, and suddenly associations are popping up all over the country to harness the passion kids and adults alike have for chasing a goat around a small arena, decades after Monty Joe and the Champ mastered the art in the plowed fields of the Petskas’ 160-acre cotton farm.
