Posted: July 6, 2012 at 4:42 a.m.

Montgomery Parsons, 8, right, moves a barrel away as Edison Parsons, 3, far left, is comforted by older brother Landon Parsons, 13, Wednesday at Parsons Stadium during the mutton bustin’ competition at Rodeo of the Ozarks. The boys acted as clowns during the event, helping to move competitors out of the arena.

Edison Parsons made his Rodeo of the Ozarks debut Wednesday in Parsons Stadium, 68 years after his great-grandfather, Shorty, founded the event.
