DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

The Morgan County Sheriff's Office will host its second annual rodeo this weekend.

For 38 years Bert Davis has performed as a rodeo clown and feature performer in 43 states, Canada and Australia. His acts with his dogs are legendary.

They've seen national recognition on "America's Got Talent." He says he's blessed with his shelter rescues, turned performers.

"We perform for kids six to 60 and eight to 80," he said "Each dog is different. It takes anywhere from 6 to 8 months to train a dog."

While Davis practices his act others are also getting ready for the weekend shows. Horses and ponies are fueling up. Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin says it's going to be great. 

"Each year my goal is to build the rodeo a little bit bigger and offer a bigger variety for folks," she said "This year for the first time in over 30 years the Morgan county sheriff's posse will be riding again. That is something we've worked on all year long."

"This is our 63rd year being in the rodeo business." "We strive with Lone Star to make entertainment fun and exciting and bring western heritage back so the families and the children can really see how the west was won," Preston Fowlks, Lone Star Producer.

Sheriff Franklin says they will be opening the doors early so kids can meet the cowboys and even their horses.

The rodeo starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Celebrations Arena in Priceville.
