It is hard growing up trailer park trash. Especially in an oil patch. Sure my friends who were smart headed to college, but, when you do just enough to get by the grades normally show it. The friends who didn’t want to go to college headed to the patch. Not an easy life being the low man on the rig. Sure the money is good, the beer is cold and the drugs are easy, but the work is dangerous and grueling.

Me, I took the easy way and joined the Army. It wasn’t the Navy so I wouldn’t run into my dad. I wasn’t Navajo so the Marines were not my cup of tea. The Air Force was cool but didn’t want to talk to me until after I was 18. But the Army, what can I say the recruiter was hot.

Bucking Horses

There has been a lot of interest in bucking bulls and it appears to be a growth industry. But the question is what will it take for bucking horses to catch up?

_MG_1788fb _MG_1857b _MG_1867b _MG_1881fb _MG_1899bThere are many new associations trying to get the bucking horse game off the ground. But it seems the process is moving along slowly. Now part of the slow uptake could be the lack of media interaction, lets face it the PRCA is not exactly a media darling like the PBR. Another part could be the lack of big events for riders, you don’t see many $50,000 added events for Bronc Riders.

So what will it take for the horses to become an investment and not a sideshow?
