The Big Show

SS10 Here are a few cowboys for you Adriane.  Take your pick.SS12They turned the lights down low. SS13 They did that, so they could play with fire.SS14There were pyrotechnics.  It added some drama and a lot of smoke and haze to the arena. SS15Lots of cowboys.

SS16Let the show begin.  How would you like to be the guy to let the bull out of the chute? SS17We saw a lot of bull riding. SS27  Some of the bulls got nasty.SS30

You never know what the bull is going to do.  They have a mind of their own.SS35We saw some more bull riding.  SS37 One bull even did some dancing.

SS71 This one wanted out so he jumped right over the rail.  See that?  That bull isn’t supposed to be back there. SS59See those people?  They aren’t supposed to be on that side of the rail.  I bet those people paid pretty penny for those seats, right there on the ground, where their lives could be in danger.  Ha!  Run for your lives or just climb on the rail.  The bull will never get you there.SS60That bull jumped right over that red sign.  He just wanted to hang with the crowd. SS61

These guys have it all under control though.  Never fear.  More bull riding to come.  Bet you can’t wait!

I have been following your blog but this is the first time that I have left a comment. These last couple of post have really made me miss home. I was born and raised in colo. spring and this is the first yr. ever that I have missed the stock show. Make me sad. Thanks for the pics.

Sarah, thanks for leaving a comment. I really appreciate it. I love hearing about people who read my blog. Where are you now? The stock show is definitely a highlight of living in CO. We love it.

Adriane, you can have them all...except the ones that are under age. :)
