Rodeo was in town

Every year our town puts on a Pro Rodeo,
it is run by volunteers and is really one of the main events happening in town.
Businesses close down for the parade,
others close down for the duration of the rodeo.
Everyone seems to do something to make this rodeo a success.

I admire the dedicated breeding programs to the bucking stock, the barrel horses, the racers, and the ropers.
I admire the athleticism of the animals.
I enjoy watching the pick up men working with the stock and safety of the cowboys.
The stock are fat and sassy.

So, here are a collection of "buck-offs" from these past few days.

Timing is everything
And, away they go..

The pick up crew

A gentle let down by the pick up man.

This spotty bull knows how to rock and roll.

The haves..

and the have not's..

Local talent

It is one thing getting bucked off,

but, before you can say hi to mother earth, 
you have to be up and running with a 1400 lb, snot slinging, bull up your butt..

run Forest run..

Saved by the rodeo clown.

Another one bites the dust..
