That's what I was talking about in my first post. It does mimic calf work on a ranch, it's the speed that I can understand adding a aspect that could be seen as cruel. In the rodeos I have gone to both small local ones and PRCA rodeos, I have seen a good number of the calves airborne while they are stopped. I've never seen any injured though.
Weird, I'm never on this side of the Rodeo is Cruel! Argument.
