The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a place where animals are born and some are sold off to die.

But we're all about the happy part here.

The rodeo lets you see newborn babes just making their first steps into the world, and it lets little kids from the city get up close with slightly bigger babes at the petting zoo.

Things can get kinda cute. As these ten photos by Allison McPhail demonstrate:
