High School Rodeo : Owyhee County : Idaho

Image description:

Who would have thought a wearing a cowboy outfit is actually compulsory anywhere ……… hehehe……… well it is at a rodeo …….. if you are gonna be allowed anywhere near the action that is …….. hehehe……… I did stick out like a bit of a sore thumb……… the only idiot not in a cowboy suit at a rodeo ……… hehehehe………. or is it all of them that are idiots …….. by the time they have 16 year olds doing that crazy bull riding ……… I felt like I might be the only non idiot there……… not only was I not wearing a cowboy outfit……… but I was openly saying surely it can’t be a good idea to let kids ride these massively powerful animals that become enraged by any attempt to be on them……. and then try and kill the kids on their backs ……… er……… call me crazy but surely this is not a good idea ?????????? Got to hand it those young bull riders ……. they have definetly got guts …….. makes you glad you grew up in the city.

It wasn’t for the stickers on their backs, that one could be timeless!

Yeah….. I love an image to have a lasting quality……. I always prefer stuff that has the feeling of a whole genre rather than the
specifics of very particular time and place like most ordinary news photographs……… some spectacular news images have that
lifted quality with their news value and timeless quality capturing decades of story in a single image…. I completely love that……. but
most don’t quite have that……. and if I am forced to choose timeless lasting quality over everyday news value …… I choose
timeless …….. :))))

I will never understand how more of the riders aren’t killed.

Yeah I would guess 3 or 4 at each event……. and yet weirdly it does not happen that often ……. but hell it must really do some folks
in……. one of the guys I watched was really limping after having his leg crushed against the outside of the arena by the bull while he
was on it……. man that stuff is gonna hurt……. that bull was like the weight of a car……. its nutz and yet weirdly facsinating……

I`ve always liked the cowboy theme,right up to the point we went horse riding and they gave me the biggest horse they had, who kinda
just did what he wanted,when he wanted… Went off the idea after that really… They got guts alright, you can see `em all over the bulls
horns! Hope all is good Bro

Even as I used that exprssion I thought of the fulls horns doing damage to their guts……. thats why I never said they have balls
those guys…….. ://///
