    You say you don't agree with shocking wild horses, but shocking wild cattle is fine. Please tell me the difference. Stock is stock, and there's a huge difference in managing rough stock horses and broke saddle horses. I have a good friend, who is a stock contractor, and has some really nice, well managed stock. I've prodded horses with a hot shot before, wild reservation studs that would try and yank you off your horse and kill you that came through the sale yard. I do agree there is right and wrong ways to use a hot shot, and getting a stalled horse out of a chute with a little zap doesn't hurt the horse at all. After all, it only takes once most of the time for the horse to get the idea. People just need to understand stock management, good efficient stock management.

    Understanding stock management isn’t the issue, the problem is that people like PETA think you shouldn’t even be allowed to own stock in the first place.

    They only comment I have is when you do calf roping and/or tieing you do not sling that calf on the ground. You have to pick the calf up and lay it down on it side and tie you don't jerk the poor animal and flip it by its neck. That is cruel.

    Yeah I agree to an extent.....I've seen those videos, even though those incidents may be few and far between, it's still difficult to stomach......even for a grumpy curmudgeon like me.....

    I havent seen really any recent stuff from Cheyenne. Most of what I have seen is more like 2007-2009 stuff and yes their are accidents at every rodeo. Even with these steers to me, you have to lay the steer down yourself and tie not use your horse. But who is too say all these are from the same day or time? Crap happens I have seen worse at small local rodeos just because of a freak accident.

    The main thing that freaks me out with roping calfs, horses, etc, is that often they are running at full speed and it seems like it could so easily choke them or break their neck. I mean, that CAN'T feel good, right?

    Yes and that is what I am saying is wrong. You should not rope a calf hard enough to flip them backwards and down onto their head. I have seen people do it by accident but the cheyenne rodeo seems very extreme and harsh towards calves. Yes, they are livestock, but so Is our horses and I wouldnt want a foal treated like that.

    Even in the calf roping, the calves that get jerked down, it's simply due to the roper not managing his slack properly. When you rope a calf, you want to kind of hang your slack out to the right with your hand...so that when the calf hits the end, he just spins around instead of getting jerked down. No calf roper wants to jerk the calf down because that ruins their time.

    Folks who don't understand the reason that things are done the way they are done find it awfully easy to call <this> or <that> cruel.

    It never ceases to amaze me that rodeo gets jumped on all the time, but I bet you would have a higher percentage of stock injuries in something like eventing...even stadium jumping.

    Yes, I did not mean to make an attack on the entire sport, I was just curious because I definitely know nothing about rodeos. I have had people bash me for things as small as using a LUNGE WHIP on my horse, people that of course are never around horses. Anyways, it doesn't seem like anyone got the wrong idea but just in case, that is not what I meant ^-^ I did not know SHARK is one of those groups, but I get the feeling their videos are voiced by the same person who voices PETA's......

    Very odd.....

    They are the kind that have no experience with animals other than their pets and think that simply “caring” or “feeling” for animals and caring for nature gives them some moral superiority and hence the right to point the finger at others about something they know nothing about. And they are the type of people who groups like PETA are just the extreme and organised version of.
