Oh, I hope the little bull can escape the rope!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do often enough! And when they don't, they are not hurt by this. Great care is taken with them. They're very strong and agile, they're heads are protected by gear, and the "capture" is momentary.

Gotcha!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yup!
Voilà  une chose que j'aimerais vraiment voir en vrai ...magnifique série de photos
Merci
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is a lot of fun, Claudine. I have to admit for feeling sorry for the animals every now and then - but great care is taken with them. They are very valuable and are not abused or hurt in any way. Thank you!
Easy when you know how grin
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Like anything, I suppose!

It does look like he is showing how to do it. Does the red flag say "Job done" or is it some sort of foul? So I know that Frank wants to have a go at some point but seeing the ladies there, what about you?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The flag is up until both the head and heals are caught - signalling the timer to stop. The winners have the fastest times.
Oh yeah - we'll both be out there next year! smile

Have you ever tried this, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nope! I just like to ride, though I haven't in a VERY long time! smile All these folks are REAL cowboys & cowgirls... They live this kind of thing every day.

The lasso caught its prey.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yep - and then he trotted away for his dinner! smile

Caught the action beautifully, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray!
I guess it's a very skilled sport but somehow I do feel sorry for the cattle.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is!
I know what you mean, but rest assured, these steer are very valuable and are well cared for. They are strong and agile, and some even seem to be having fun - believe it or not - toying with the cowboys! Some that get away seem to toss their heads as if to say "ha-ha!" When they are caught, it's momentary and they are never hurt.

What skill is involved! A lovely set of pictures Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very much! It's so fun to watch them! Thank you, Anne!
WOW Elizabeth!... great presentation...
it's good that both the cattle and the horses are wearing some protection

my favorite is the last shot where the horse is showing its strength....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Peter!
Yes - theses beasties are well taken care of!
I like that last one, too!
Good stuff, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Tom!
The red flag signifies keep back I guess
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The red flag is up until there's a clean "catch", when it goes down, it indicates to stop the clock. This is a timed event. So the winners not only have to have a clean catch - but the best time.
A veritable photo essay... very nice!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Larry! That's what I was going for!
Hey - you going to join us in England next year???

Excellent series of action shots with great highlights of the horse's muscles.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Steven! I like this series for that very reason!
Good shots of the action!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mary!
