Stockyards Rodeo

The Fort Worth Stockyards Rodeo (ro-day-oh, even) runs Sat & Sun year round and has been going for decades. It is unabashed in its catering towards the tourist dollar. Despite having some mean-ass cranky bulls, it does not hold a candle or even a matchstick to the Stock Show. But a few really cool things came out of our recent visit.

1. One of the best pics I ever took with an $85 Nikon from Tar-zhay

2. A bull-rider escaped and charged Fiona (she was saved by a clown)

I also have some unflattering video of two aspiring ranch hands chasing a calf, but since they did not catch it, I will spare their blushes.
