I hope you don't ride, because that's unnecessary stress and suffering.
I hope you never show up 15 minutes late for a feeding, that's unnecessary stress too.
I hope you never trailer your horse to a new location, that's unnecessary stress.....

Okay, i think there's a huge different between taking a horse for a ride and chasing a calf around, throwing ropes around it's neck, throwing it to the ground and dragging it by it's neck.. but maybe that's just me

Does this look like it weighs 700 pounds?
Calf Roping - Pinedale Online News, Wyoming

Or this little guy?

And this guy must be pretty strong if a calf does, indeed, weigh 700lbs... http://www.danzfamily.com/archives/b...alf-roping.jpg

I see the necessity of calf roping on a ranch, but those calves are penned in one area, the rider calmly walks his horse near, lassos the calf, then they brand, and castrate, then let the calf go. That is a far cry from sticking a calf in a shoot, and chasing it down, roping it, and throwing it to the ground.

Rodeos started as competitions between ranch hands, same as horse racing started as competitions between neighbors, but for the sake of entertainment, they are now a far cry from the competitions they used to be.

That being said, I do like some aspects of the rodeo, bronc riding and bull riding are two of my favorites, though I'm not sure exactly where the whole bull riding came from. Who decided "hey, I bet you can't ride that bull"? But in true sanctioned rodeos, there are quite a few rules and regulations for the safety and health of an animal, and the bulls and broncs literally do if I remember correctly 2 "runs" a season, then are put out to pasture for the rest of the time. So imo I don't think a majority of rodeo events are "cruel" to the animal, but there are a few events I'd like to see either changed, or not done anymore.

Even if these calves weighed 700 lbs (which they do not) it would not take away from the immaturity of their bones and joints, which is another big reason why extra stress on them so young is detrimental.

I found out that Crossescowgirl has several other threads about the same type of issues, just looking to start an argument, or get people riled up. Just wanted to put that out there before someone loses their temper dealing with this person.
