Bulls & Barrels

P1050701We had more friends out to help with canning vegetables from the garden & carpentry projects this weekend.  An afternoon cookout and evening rodeo were in order for their reward.  For August, we ideal weather to work, eat, and sit in a cowpasture.






How is that for concentration!


About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

    Awesome pictures! The concentration, the anger in the bulls eyes!

      I was playing with shutter speeds to capture different action affects. These came out well. Only a few riders actually stayed on for the requried 8 seconds. The bulls mostly won, but did not get scored (human bias). Once the riders were dismounted, some bulls just stopped bucking and strolled back into the pen. Others took quiet a few minutes to settle down. That’s what the rodeo clowns are for. I doubt that the fence which I was kneeling behind would have stopped a bull if it decided to charge.

    The person that knocked the barrel over – did they fall off of the horse?
