90 paintings, Molokai Cowboy, # 54
I took nearly five hundred pictures at the Junior Ropers rodeo today, but this wasn't one of them. I saw the kid's practicing a few days before and some of them weren't wearing shoes, although they all managed to find their boots for the competition. I admire the bravery required to get on a horse and charge around barrels. There's a lot more skill involved than just staying on including controlling large, strong animals that may or may not be having a bad day. Horses have tantrums, occasionally panic and just won't do won't do what you would like them too sometimes, pretty much like people.
