No bull, that was scary

We’re watching the Bull Riding show in the Grandstands.  It’s always a fun event.  Manly cowboys, wild-eyed bulls spinning around, the threat of danger at every turn.

Like just now.  A bull rider just got thrown off.  The bull stepped on the cowboy’s head and then planted a hoof on his back.  The rider was motionless in the dirt for too long.  I’m sure I wasn’t the only prayin’ person putting in a special request.

The paramedics came, the cowboy regained consciousness, he left the arena waving from a back-board, and the ambulance is still in the parking lot.  I take that as a good sign.  Something really freaky scary would involve skid marks and flashing lights.

My hat is off to you, riding cowboys.  Thank you for risking permanent disability…and worse…for our entertainment.

This is not the rider that got hurt. I put my camera down was soon as I realized he was hurt.

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
