Second photo: Rodeo clown Zack Cook of Cody, Wyoming pretends to balance a ball that is attached to a bat during a lull in Sunday’s 2022 4th of July Makawao Stampede at Oskie Rice Arena. Cook said he is in his second year of working as a rodeo clown and fell into the profession by chance. He said he was working at an rodeo venue and when the clown didn’t show up for a performance he was pressed into service. “I love it,” he said. “I can’t see myself doing anything else but clowning now.”
