You write such beautiful post!


Thanks, but I just posted a link that shows the silent majority is awake and Dems are walking away and switching parties. Dems are liars and race hustlers and are headed for the cliff like lemmings.

In NY they're even turning against the Jews thanks to de-Blasio, aka, Wilheim. A big block will now be voting for Trump. Their win, no matter the cost strategy, is falling apart. Their only chance is destroying the economy and mail-in ballots, that isn't working either.

Hang on cowboy, you can ride that bull for 8 seconds, chin down and arm up, watch his head to know which way he's going, keep one leg on each side, use that arm like a bird's tail feathers to keep in the center, you can do it, ride him, cowboy!

Not on a bull. That's only allowed on saddle broncs. Bareback doesn't allow a saddle either. Maybe you should try calf roping, you use a saddle with a saddle horn in that. Must be a tenderfoot or kidding me?

Even NY has a few good bull riders. They tend to wear a football helmets instead of a cowboy hat.

Jr. Bonner - Steve McQueen, J W Coop - Cliff Robertson, and 8 Seconds - Luke Perry are all good rodeo movies available on YT.

I rode when Larry Mahan was the top rider who flew to rodeos to rack up points and money, but I remember Jim Shoulders too. Dang, I'm getting old.

Your not the decider, the voters are. Let's see what they say. I think they'll reject the defund the police and the torching of their neighborhoods. Just a wild guess on my part. They are starting to see what will happen when only the criminals have guns.

PP Major thinks CNN has all the answers, He will always rely on them even as they go bankrupt in the next 4 years. No more pay for badmouthing the President. Poor PP!

Not much of a rodeo fan, and kidding you somewhat. Nice to converse with someone with a sense of humor these days. I have been on real cattle drives, and like you I am getting old.

I enjoyed it also. I was born to ride something, horses or motorcycles, now I can't cut the mustard like I used to. Oh well, adapt and overcome, as Uncle Sugar taught me. There is always some kind of work around solution, so far, ha. I've never been on a real cattle drive but I've been to some nice ranches.

I got to visit the 6666's ranch back in 1966. Met the Marlbouro Man while they were filming a tv commercial during the last sale of Cutter Bill's offspring.

I forget how many Sections of land they owned but it was a lot. A Section is 640 acres. They have sold some since then but still own 275,000 acres. That's larger than Rhode Island.

Made it to the King Ranch, but never made it to the Waggner Ranch. That was when I first fell in love with Texas. Land lot's of land, neath the starry sky above, don't fence me in. Never wanted to leave. Was tempted to run away once, and that was my destination. Still don't know if I made the right decision, but I was only twelve at the time.

I owned a pair of Larry Mahan boots.
I loved them. The leather was soft as butter.

I'm too tight for those. I got all mine from Sears, Acme was the brand name. I worn a pair out about every six months and they were good boots. Not made for my kind of abuse though. Think they went for about forty bucks back in the '60s. Then when Urban Cowboy came out in 1980, the price of everything went up in western apparel.

You didn't miss anything but a tiring life. Herding cows is not as much fun as it was dreaming about it as a ten year old. Fifteen hours a day in the saddle being very grateful I was using my own custom saddle. Also being glad the cows and horse and the dog knew a lot more than I did. Don't believe things like going to sleep in the saddle cause there "ain't no way." Can't say I was born to ride, many times I asked myself, "what am I doing here." After fifteen hours a day from daylight to dark, you are to sore to even think about sleep. Living on horseback takes a lot of time to get used to. Better to just enjoy ones self and getting down without having to worry about cows. Wondering why people eat these things. Have to admit they are good.

I quit wearing Western clothes in early 2000.
They got too expensive.
I still wear Levi's, but no more Tony Lama, etc.

I always had a barn full of horses to ride. Spent about two hours a day on those I was breaking or training. I love a good pleasure horse. Had a black mare like Ben Johnson rode in most of his movies. At a walk she could cover a lot of ground, her lope was like a rocking chair, but her trot was painful to endure. Had to stand up in the stirrups when I trotted her. It jarred every bone in my body.

During the summer I rode from dawn til 10 pm, during school it was one before school and til 10 pm at night. Thankfully, we had lights in our arena and a neighbor had 600 acres and he let me use his land because I let him know of any problems I saw with his cattle or fencing.

I roped a little too, do you remember Roy and Ray Cooper? Saw them at the Dixie Nat'l in Jackson, MS. in Feb. a few times, poetry in motion. Got pretty good and then tried bulldogging. Loved it, but wasn't built for it, too short and too light or the steers were too big. Either way, I gave it up after the third time I was run over by a four legged freight train with horns.

Love throughbreds too, the worse bucking stock I ever rode and tried to break. I got a few to break and you never knew when they were going to explode under you. Most were abused in the gates or started too young and just crazy and saw buggers everwhere.

One threw me through a three-strand barbed wire fence like a bullet. Ripped my clothes but I didn't get a scratch. One tossed me higher than I'd ever been, I landed face down and spread-eagled in a hard-packed area. I know I couldn't breathe for over three minutes, just before I passed out, I started breathing again. The big red beast was just watching me from about ten feet away, I swear he was laughing at me. Anyway, after about ten minutes I was able to get back on him and he never bucked again. Guess he just wanted to show me who was boss.

Instead of paying me a Doctor offered me a deal for breaking a mare. A grandson of Go Man Go. I went to his place and looked at him, a beautiful three year old bay gelding, so we made a deal. Wasn't a horse I couldn't break. I later found out he had been to three professional trainers and none could break or ride him. He loved to buck. It was his thing.

The first month he bucked every day, after that he settled down if I rode him hard every day. Skip a day and he would buck. The neighbor with the 600 acres told me a highway was being built right through the middle of his place. When it was almost paving time, I decided to see how fast my horse could run, so I eased him out on the roadbed and figured out about a mile stretch and loped him a little ways and then asked for a little more speed. He kept stretching out longer and longer and I felt like my feet were about to start dragging the ground.

Then I realized, if he tripped or stumbled, I was probably going to die, so I gradually slowed him down. Never been on a horse that fast in my life. I was on cloud nine for a week. Then I had to sell him because dad said he needed some money. Or maybe he was worried the horse would kill or maim me. You never knew what my dad was really thinking.

I had a nice padded seat Circle Y stock saddle, even the fenders had a little padding, basically a cutting saddle. It was the only saddle I ever had. Whenever I used another saddle I felt exposed and out of my element. Weird, but the only way I know to explain it.

Sorry, get me talking about horses and my jaw becomes unhinged and starts flapping in the wind. I'll hush now.
