A year ago, Stacy Coats and her husband, Preston, traveled to the Fort Worth Stock Show’s Ranch Rodeo from their home in Nacogdoches with tickets to both the Friday and Saturday night performances.

But she was denied attending the Saturday night show when it became apparent that she was on the brink of giving birth to her son, Ky.

“I went into labor during the night and we had to drive home the next morning,” she said. “And I had Ky during the same time that the rodeo was underway on Saturday night. And we were supposed to be at the rodeo on Saturday night as well.”

This weekend, Coats attended the Ranch Rodeo in its entirety with son, Ky, in her lap and husband, Preston, at her side. Their seats were in a great area, near the bucking chutes at the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum.

Ky will celebrate his first birthday on Monday, Jan. 16.

Coats, 25, and her husband have attended the Stock Show’s Ranch Rodeo for the past six years. Preston Coats, who grew up on a Nacogdoches County ranch that’s been in his family since the 1840s, said he relishes attending the Stock Show’s Ranch Rodeo because he’s enthralled with the cowboy lifestyle.

“It’s my favorite rodeo,” he said.

The Stock Show began its 23-day run Friday. The Ranch Rodeo’s Friday night performance was the first of 36 rodeo performances that the Stock Show has scheduled this year.
