Great videos! Thanks for sharing. :)

Have you seen this one? I love this video so much. Legacies mean so much to me.

Wow! By far the best bucking horse I've ever seen! So much grace and power and pride...

There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.

I liked this comment in the article:

You knew he was going to do something special every time,” Bennie said. “That horse never failed to buck. He never had a bad trip. Even on his worst day, they'd earn money on him. “Commotion has a lot of heart. He's the best horse I'll ever have.

Not QUITE the PETA image of a bucking horse owner, eh?

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

What a great bucking horse!

One of the best I've seen is Grated Coconut, he was great to watch! And passed his buck onto his offspring

I don't think some people actually realize how much money and CAREFUL breeding goes into all the rough stock. They aren't just rank outlaws that ranches sell off they are valuable athletes. And just as much careful time/ and scrutiny is put into them as an Olympic horse. Love me some broncs lol
