Marlea, just a FYI - no text speak on this forum. Though I guess thanx (vs thanks) is barely text speak. Just giving you a heads up.

The great thing about this world is, we are allowed to make choices. You are allowed to not go to rodeos and support them since you do not agree with them.

Those of us that enjoy rodeos and realize that the stock used at most rodeos is well taken care of can still attend them and enjoy the show.

Obviously there are bad eggs out there. Just like in every aspect of life. But it is not fair to paint the whole sport with the same broad brush just because an organization like PETA managed to put together a video that showed some crash and burn stuff.

I'm not even sure Marlea's in the U.S. Do they have actual rodeos where you live Marlea, or are you basing your opinion solely on PETA's YouBoob videos?

I've been to several rodeos. None of the animals got hurt, although I did worry about a few of the cowboys.

Haha! Speed! Yep, I have been to rodeos too and just the cowboys we worry about.

Went to the Houston Rodeo last night, awesome night and I'm going back Friday. I only saw three injuries and they were all inflicted on people.

One of the bulls apparently worth $250,000, I suspect he is treated accordingly. As for the horses, if they were mine I would consider them fat and overfed.

Sarah, good bucking stock is expensive and highly prized.

They're actually breeding horses and bulls for the sport now, not just using random animals.

Heck, who wouldn't want to work 3 minutes a week and have the rest of the time off to be pampered and well fed?

Those horses and bulls are clearly prized and valued animals, immaculately presented and like you say, bred for their purpose - eat, sleep and occasionally throw a bucking fit.

I think the title of this thread is a little...sensational. I understand that it is not comfortable to have the bucking strap on and I do think that myself as I watch them. But to say that rodeo kills? Kills who? Cowboys? I would venture to say that more cowboys have died in pursuit of saddle bronc/bull riding than any broncs or bulls.

The title of the thread looks like something that came from watching too many PETA videos in one day.
