Where Else Can You Find So Many Cowboys?

Nowhere but at the rodeo and that's where I was this weekend. Our local rodeo is on the small side but that allows me to get right up there and take some wonderful pictures of some very nice and accommodating rodeo riders. Lots of good action shots for my book video for Re-Ride at the Rodeo as well as just plain fun. Now this is the kind of research I can really get into.

Besides all the cowboys-who were just the nicest gentlemen--I really enjoy all their gear. All those cowboy hats, taped riggings and how about those two-toned boots--aren't they a hoot? And then there are those chaps. Fringed, dyed and decorated they really say ride 'em cowboy.

Take a gander and let me know what pictures you like best; give me some ideas for that book video.

Yee-haw, Anne! Wonderful pictures. All the brand new straw hats are a hoot!
Gotta love a cowboy!
BTW: Why'd that one guy have his boots tied up? I've never seen that before.
Of course, boot tops are usually covered--unless we're talking drugstore cowboys--so it might be a common practice and I'm just in the dark.
Thanks for the great pictures. I can see a few as book covers. ;)

I have no idea, Susan why those boots were tied but it sure made for an interesting picture. He was one of the bull riders so maybe its something to do with riding bulls. If anyone knows, please drop us a comment. Thanks for checking out the pics--Anne
