"The Corriente is a small, agile, athletic animal
with stamina, heavy horns, and a gentle disposition.
These characteristics make the Corriente an ideal
animal for team roping, bulldogging and an
excellent choice for cutting and team penning. "
These Spanish decendants are beautiful, as well.
I know a lot of you feel sorry for the steer in these
roping competitions, and I do too a bit. But to be
clear, they are valuable, and very well taken care
of, at least by this group of people. I can't speak for
other arena's or competitions.... but Wayne & friends
are very good to all their animals. The steers heads
and ears are protected by gear, and when they are
captured, it's very momentary -
then they trot off to get some water and hay!
I caught this gal sleeping on the job:
The steer pictured below was not the fastest... but certainly spunky!
She out maneuvered the cowboys a number of times.
Here, she's tossing her head in victory!
