    :D Only at yearly rodeos and by mostly out of state riders.

    We have lots of local bull riders well past the age to climb onto a bull. They limp around for a month or two afterwards. :D

    When I was working in NW Wyoming I met a young fella all busted up and almost in a body cast. He couldn't wait to climb onto another bull. I advised him that when he healed up in a few months, forget the dang bulls and stick with roping.

    You fellas chasing and roping those longhorns cast a big loop.

    Yeah,a guy can team rope until he is very old. We have a century team roping club and in order to enter a team your ages must add up to 100.There are always a few 80 year olds and I agree the roughstock is for young guys. I can't exclude myself from the thrill and pay for it now. I like gentler ones now and ride .quite a bit....Tony

    I have raised and been around a lot of cattle, as well as been chased a few times by bulls. I know better than to climb onto the back of a bull and never turn your back on one. :D

    My wife had a killer paint mare only she could ride and handle. That mare would kill anyone else. Luckily, I talked her into selling it to a couple of fellas that dealt in bucking rodeo horses. They made a lot of money off that mare.

    Hi, well we need good bucking stock for Rodeo.
    Those Mexican fighting bulls are killers, I had a Dexter / Longhorn bull here that fought everything and was ver quick and heavy horned.
    When I see a cattleman without a saddle horse it just seems pointless to me. Cattle are the greatest reason to get yourself a good mount. The best way , to herd them along, cut them out etc without undo stress and burning the fat of them.
    Not to mention a little horse games and hunting horseback.
    The horseman is " greener" than any hippy , city , vegetable eating type person, imo
