Stock show store serves forgetful competitors

If you're a visitor at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, you'll find plenty of vendors trying to sell you something.

T-shirts, belt buckles and boots are among the many offerings. But guests are not the only ones who occasionally do some shopping.

Sullivan Supply operates at least four booths inside the livestock barns where competitors can buy clippers, brushes and other grooming products.

The stores, which open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., stay pretty busy, employee Carlos Fox said.

The shelves are lined with items with names like Dairy Magic. It's a handy place to have nearby for competitors who find themselves in a pinch, he said.

Just that morning, one showed up asking to buy two specific blade guards for his animal clippers. The competitor groused that he had 10 such blade guards at home.

"I told him 'Well, now you have 12,’" Fox said.
