The Wilsall Rodeo started with a dandy performance from the slightly math-challenged Ringling 5. You’ve no doubt heard their top ten song “If Jesus Had Been a Norwegian.”
There are not so scary moments during a rodeo – although I’m not sure the calf would agree!
But there are an awful lot of “yikes” moments. I seem to spend most of the rodeo in terror for either the stock or the riders, but it sure is exciting. Photographing the action seems to help – when I’m focused on getting the shot I’m not so focused on clutching my poor husband’s shoulder when a cowboy gets in trouble!
(By the way, check out the dudes in the background. Great hats, great belt buckles. They didn’t just make up that Marlboro man.)
