    Well, only two things that come out of Texas, Steers and friends of Dorothy.

    No. Steer roping is for young people. Rodeo cripples after about age 30 or so, except for a very few.

    I’m from Texas but only a few people do that.

    I saw a little of the Bull Riding on CBS yesterday and was surprised to see how much protective gear including helmets that the riders were wearing. It’s about time, I guess.

    @bb d

    As I understand it, steer wrestling is neither calf roping or bull riding, but where a cowboy riding a horse drops down on an adult steer and wrestles it down by the horns. I used photos from a statue in Fort Worth as a model: http://www.flickr.com/photos/texaseagle/3841182200/

    It’s called “bulldogging”, a frequent rodeo event. Many rodeo events originated from tasks required for cattle ranching. This ain’t one of ’em.

    Didn’t they have to bulldog them to the ground for old style burning branding?

    I am sure they got the occasional unbranded one. They had to have a way to pull them down to brand them.

    You are right…I’ve seen this…The idea is just to get steer down, no rope…Of course I hate this…I went to one and only rodeo, where a steer died right after…he was wrestled down and that is where he stayed…they covered him up like we were supposed to pretend nothing happened…too much for me…it was my last rodeo

    They should have run it in February. Bulldogging was invented by a black cowboy.
