Cowboy up, Pard. That bull is a Thoroughbred.: It started as a way for working cowboys to blow off some steam. It evolved into the most exciting segment of a rodeo, then went off on its own as the PBR Tour. Now, bull-riding, and more specifically the stock used in the sport, is a multi-million dollar a year study in genetics.

The bulls are definitely more rank these days, and the bull riders are donning protective gear for good reason.

"... bull riders are donning protective gear." This is news to me. I didn't know that the SPCA had purchased any weapons.

Heh heh, SPCA folks don't protest near as good as the folks from PETA, Bud. By the way, that does stand for People Eating Tasty Animals, doesn't it?
