Bull Riding Pictures

I promised ya'll some pics of the bull riding practice, so here they are!

The most entertaining bit was the impromptu rodeo clowns... and there were a lot of them...


This kid got hung up, but don't worry, he's ok.



Apparently, for some of these guys, one in particular, touching the bull while the rider is spurring them on is the ultimate in macho.....

Because this one just kept trying.....



Of course, they weren't the best bulls in the world... a few of them just wanted some praise for their hard work, like this guy.....


But all in all there were some really good pictures to be had, like these.....

Hmm BULLdoggin, BULLriding, and his unpublicized " profession " makes a feller think that "E" is all about the BULL no matter what angle ya come at him on lol .

Good shots hun

Oh, E didn't ride. In his words, he "Got sense" between yesterday morning and yesterday afternoon. You can see E in the background of some of the pics, as a volunteer clown.

Unfortunately, I was focused elsewhere and trying to catch a good shot of one of the rides when the bull stopped dead, looked in E's general direction, and E just took off like someone shot him in the butt with a bb gun... out into the middle of the arena. He'll never live that down, but he was laughing about it when it was all done, and I was chicken clucking at him.

You still got some good pics sweety. Be careful or the Rodeo team will want you to go to the rodeos with them as a photographer. LOL

I cropped some of those and printed them out, they look better when I cut out all the extra crap that I couldn't avoid getting shooting from across the arena.

On the bright side, look at how nicely my digital zoom works... :D
