I got to ride a bull! =]

Yup yup. Title says it all.

Yesterday I went to my friend Lane's house(they have A LOT of cows and horses) and because I was the only girl there, they decided they would just leave me out and ride bulls. :P

But, I convinced them to let me get on one. And I was terrified. They made me use a helmet, but that still didn't help the fact that this thing I was about to get on had endless horns(not literally :P).

So, I managed to stay on for 3 seconds...and I am proud of that, because I am five foot three, and only weigh about 100 pounds, so that thing could have flicked me like a feather.

I wish I would have got someone to take pictures, but I didn't want my parents to find out that I rode an animal that could have killed me. =]

Bulls are fun! 3 seconds is pretty good for your first time. Are you going to do it again?

I might. It was fun, but scary.

I think next time I will ride one without horns. :P

I've sat on my share of moo moo milk cows (my dad was a farmer) But I never set my rear on a bull Kudos to you for giving it a try, glad you lived through it

hehe. Thanks. =]

I sit on my back of my old cow, Bella, all the time. So, that helped me a little bit.

Takes courage - more then I have I'm sure!

I have that on my "bucket list" but the older I get the less of a good idea it seems.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Well, atleast you gave it a shot. Good for you. I went on a mechanical bull for the 1st time over the weekend - I just had to try it - it was fun!! Except today every muscle in my body hurts - but I stayed on for a long time.

I love mechanical bulls! I think they are harder than actual bulls because that silly rope you have to hold on to. At least on a real bull you get to put your hand under a tight rope.

And you are right, they do make your muscles hurt. =]

I'm the kind of the poster girl for a local mechanical bull operation (the guy that runs it always lets me ride free, because he says it brings in the business. ^^;; ). The only real bulls I've sat on are the family farm's old bull, Ferdie, and a friend's pet Longhorn steer, but both of them are pretty used to having people sit on them.

Congrats!

I hate mechanical bulls! They always unseat you by spinning them super fast which is NOT realistic in regards to how a live bull bucks. Hmph, lol.

I'm jealous! I've always wanted to ride poddy's/steers/bulls, but i'm too old now to ride steers and girls aren't allowed to ride bulls. *sigh* Need to befriend a hot cowboy and dazzle him into letting me on his bull...
