One of the things I just love about the rodeo (you already know I love those cowboys) is that it is still All American. We honor our God, our flag, our country and our service men and women. It makes my heart swell with pride each and every time I'm there.
While I don't pretend to understand all of the judging criteria, I do know that those cowboys are tenacious beyond a doubt. I cringe like a mother hen each time I see one fall, rise out of the dust and limp back to the gate. My mouth is agape as I watch the contortions they go through while trying to hang onto that bucking bronco. I really don't understand how the human body can survive such antics but I'm sure glad someone has the guts to do it as it is amazing to watch!
Now...onto the cowboys themselves...
Of course I had to get my cowgirl in here.
No matter what we do,
she enjoys playing the part.
