isn't it usually the women who like drama?

I had to laugh at these pics I saw on the 'net.  A rodeo in the next province west of us.  They have been having better weather.  Good thing too.....   this would not have been any fun at all in frosty or rainy conditions... although, having said that, cowboys are pretty tough.  They have to be ...
they fall off all the time.

They even start reeeelly young.  This is called "mutton busting".  It's the kid's version of riding some wild bronc ... and it is hilarious when you see it in real life.  Even funnier than the pig races.. running as fast as their little legs will carry them to the finish line...   where they get a tiny Oreo cookie as their reward!

The "muttons" looks totally unconcerned ... hahahha..... the little guy on the other hand..... !! whoa!













Now... here's a little girl....showing how it's done...
























Guy.....













Guy........ yikes!!  he must belong to the actor's guild!













Girl.........

I'm just sayin'.................................................................

plus, you've got to admit...... it's worth a grin at the very least...................

they are fun to watch! the best thing I ever saw at a rodeo was a covered wagon race - that was pretty amazing.

Ah, I love the rodeo! It's been so long since I was at one. The mutton busting is the most hilarious EVER, but I don't know if I agree if it's more funny than the pig races... Come on... Pigs! RACING! LOL!
