Thirteens All Around

Well, 13 was our number yesterday. June 13th, we drew the 13 hole and finished 13th! LOL!

Stubby lost his footing when he turned back and that caused him to lose points on his score. We're still proud of him though. It was 100 degrees and humid as all get out! I was just sittin' in the stands and was sweatin' like a pig!

Here's his video. I started it a little early so you have to sit through them gettin' him ready before the action starts.




We are gonna try him out of the right hand delivery next time to see if that will help him keep his feet. The husband is gonna work with him, running him out of the chute, to get him used to turning. Hopefully that will help him figure out his feet. Next futurity is July 11th.

I'm sorry, I sure was rutin for you. I would love to go to a bull futurity. I bet it is neat to see. I love the way bulls look and move in rodeos. Good luck in July and to hubby in getting him ready.

He sure bucked hard though. I wouldn't want to be on the back of that sucker.

Well, Stubby sure looked good to me!
Of course I know nothing about it, but I sure as shootin' wouldn't want to be riding him!

Oh my Lans... he's a beautiful boy though. I just love his coloring!

I just think that's so cool to hear about training and working a bucking bull. I guess I never thought much about the work someone might put into these boys.

Lordy, that is one beautiful bull. And he got back on his feet quick. He's just a baby growing into those feet, but he was sure buckin' hard.

Lookin' forward to July 11th.
