Theme Thursday-(WH)oops




Posted by Picasa

"Mama don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys..."
There were (Wh)oops, then whoas and I am certain some pretty big bruises when it was all done. The horses seemed to have fun though. I took these shots at the Inter Tribal Rodeo in Gallup. The afternoon started like most summer days in New Mexico--hot, sunny, an azure blue sky with high white clouds building on the horizon. By the time these guys rode the wind was whipping and a light rain was falling. The show was accompanied by lightning in the distance.That's New Mexico--wildly beautiful.

I am investigating the double posting but in the meantime must applaud this post! Crazy idiots! All power to 'em, I guess!

Rain in NM? That was strange to read.

I wonder how these guys have any brains left intact when they're done riding.

Some people are just ASKING for their "whoops" moments, I think! hahahaha

I just don't get this sport but it is fun to watch.

The riding looks fun. It's the landing I worry about. Great pics.

Marianna said...

That must have hurt! Ouch!

Tom said...

they must be crazy--but it does kind of look like fun. Does bull riding void your health insurance?

I feel sore just loooking at those shots... and none of them even show the riders hitting the ground!

I've always wanted to go to a rodeo.
