We took the girls to their first rodeo today and they loved it.  I have only been to one rodeo before this and I don't remember any of it.  I enjoyed it quite a bit and think we'll try to make this an annual family event.  I quickly figured out I am not a big fan of the bull riding or especially the bull fighting parts.  I really didn't want to see anyone seriously hurt or anything, especially in front of the kids.  The last guy who did the bull fighting part got hurt pretty bad and was on the ground for quite a while.  They brought the back board thing out and were preparing to carry him off when he decided he could get up and walk out with some assistance. 

Anyway, here are a couple of pictures I took today. 


  1. What fun. I'm glad you all got to go. The last time I went caused me to have an asthma attack as now I know I am very allergic to horses. I too don't like the bull riding/roping part. It just seems cruel.

  2. Great pictures! That's funny. Larry and I both like to watch bull riding. I know the bulls won't get hurt, and as for the grown men who ride them.......they ought to have better sense!
