Clay County Fair brings in new event, large crowd during Thursday night’s slate of events

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

There’s a singular, collective beat before a rodeo begins.

A beat of four hearts; of a horse’s hoof against the ground; a click of the gate as the steer is released into the arena; and before the judge pulls down the red flag, signaling the go.
