I never could ride anything that bucked worth a damn!! Started trying it as a youngster, and wasn't any better at it 10 years later.
I always thought the guys that could go the full time and then still
land on their feet were pretty cool, I just plain sucked at it........Always landed on my head and walked around not knowing where I was for a couple of hours
I did rope for alot of years though, still do on occasion. Won a few buckles even, and
I still have all ten. Grandpa always said to keep my thumb up, pointed at the sky and I wouldn't loose any fingers thata way. He also said the fastest way to loose your fingers is to be looking at the horn instead of where the steer is going!! He had all his fingers, so does my dad.
But, a Real Cowboy
can do both. Rope and
ride Broncs..........we'll see what kinda guff that stirs up
