As you already know DD barrel raced at a rodeo about an hour away last Saturday night...And in case you missed that post feel free to read it here!! So for many years we lived around this area, we "grew" up with all of the local cowboys! I can remember spending my Friday & Saturday nights with 2 of my best friends who's boyfriends (one now husband) were bull riders. Man those were fun times, just being young and enjoying the things we loved to do!!!
So this past weekend we were meeting one of my best friends and her husband who was one of the former bull riders we used to hoot and holler for!! He is retired from this after he had a pretty bad injury...No not riding, but at work! Well while we were there we crossed paths with another old friend who rode the circuits during our time. He is actually the best friend of my best friends husband LOL, can you get that!! Well not to my surprise B was there to ride that night...You know he was just one of those cowboys who never "really" settled down and planted roots so he has over the years continued to ride and I think now he is just trying to rekindle his love for bull riding?!?! I'm seriously not sure.. Well beings that JH my best friends husband knew that my J had gotten into a little bull riding he decided to take J with him behind the chutes to pull B's rope. J was so excited!! He stood there and watched as B pulled off 1 of only 2 or 3 qualifying rides!! His score was a 76 which put him the winner for the night..Now of course he did not make it out of there all peachy keen cause when he untied his rope and went down the bull somehow managed to get him in the face....So J said that the whole side of his face was swollen and he had blood coming out of his mouth, and of course wouldn't except a peek from the paramedic...Cowboys!!
Getting his rope pulled
Comes out in a blaze of glory!!
Counting on 8
Just a little kick to the face.....
