DENVER (CBS4) – Forget a bull in a china shop — how about inviting two steers for high tea?
In a nod back to Denver’s cow town roots, the Brown Palace welcomed the National Western Stock Show grand champion and champion reserve steers.
The grand champion is named “Slugger,” who was raised by 13-year-old Baylor Bonham of Newcastle, Okla.
The reserve bull was raised by Lauren May of Mineral Point, Wis. Its name is coincidentally, “Denver.”
