I had not seen a rodeo in person since I was a child. So it was a real treat to attend the Mesquite Rodeo while I was in Dallas. There were many moments that left me breathless, but none more than this one:
Right after this happened, the horse did a sumersault and landed right on top of the cowboy.
This shows people hauling him out on a stretcher. Very scary stuff, but they said he was going to be fine.
This is "cowboy poker". The bull knocks cowboys down, and the last one standing wins. Very interesting.
That's just some of my wonderful Internet friends. They're great.
