Stubby and the PBR

We managed to get Stubby in a PBR Touring Pro this past weekend.  The husband and I were both nervous because many of the top bullriders were going to be there.  We prayed Stubby could hold his own!

On Friday, I hauled Stubby to Rent-a-Husband.  He was going to get him checked in for us since the Husband had to work.  Stubby was NOT happy to see RAH.  But Stubby is never happy to see anyone but us.  RAH got him all checked in early Saturday.

We got there just in time for the bullriding at 2pm.  Husband had to work Saturday morning so we were running behind.  I even got pulled over on my way to pick him up!  Trooper was very nice and just gave me a warning. ;o)  But we made it.

Stubby didn't have to work very hard on Saturday.  Bucked his guy right off.  Then proceeded to chase people in the arena and hook the horse that was attempting to push him out!  Now everyone thinks he is SOO mean!

Sunday he got turned out from what we were told but they made him a re-ride bull.  Luckily, there was a re-ride and he got bucked again.  Here is the video from that out.  Don't laugh at my yelling...



The husband and I were proud of him.  He did all we could ask.  Now he's out bein' lazy in the pasture.

Pictures of the bullriding to come!

Way to go!!! Beautiful job and I would think he was mean if I didn't he is a puppy around you.

Almost as if he's doing a little grandstanding after he bucks the rider cuz after he has his little "charge" he goes right back toward the pen.

Just making sure he gets his props!
