I have to agree with the PP. I just went to a rodeo on Sunday. Some of the bucking stock was RANK to handle, and some were very good natured to handle, but they all BUCKED! The other thing they had in common was their apparent good health. They were all in good flesh and seemed in tip-top shape. As for retirement, a good bucking horse in revered by cowboys and stockman. They generally retire to pasture or a breeding program. I don't know what becomes of them if they are so-so performers.
