I am not calling you a liar, I am stating quite simply what you said is not physiologically possible. I don't doubt the steer suffered some sort of injury but a "snapped" neck (which I take to mean as broken) would have left the steer unable to walk at the very least and dead at the very most. Any break in the neck area, would have rendered nerve impulse travel below the neck impossible, where all 4 feet,and not too forget vital organs are located. simple Anantomy and Physiology

Easy Alex, no one is calling you a liar, no need to jump on us.

I'm just saying I have never seen an animal of any sort snap its neck and get up and walk away.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

ok. I don't know that it broke it's neck, but something was very wrong.

However if you look up broken necks, paralysis would appear to depend on where the break happens.

I am not terribly interested in debating that, as I am not a vet, and I didn't have an x ray machine there, but the steer was very hurt, seriously hurt, enough to put it to sleep if it was your animal.

The absolute worst I've seen done at a rodeo? That's easy! An older chunky gal wearing booty shorts with saggy butt cheeks hanging out the back end, cowboy boots, a pink straw cowboy hat and a tank top with no bra that you could easily distinguish her nipple rings through, dancing to some country song at the beer gardens. Right there, that's the worst!

Apologies for over reacting, you seem reasonable.

^^^ This!

I was trying to think of how to describe the skank-wear of some of the audience! And it's not just offensive clothing on the middle-aged and older folks. Holy smokes! Some of the buckle bunnies... Their mamas need to be slapped!

I've never wrestled a steer. However, many years ago, I wrestled a 70 lb doe. She was tame and used by the Division of Wildlife for deer feeding studies. Some *** shot her up with a BB gun while she was in her pen, and I needed to put salve on her face. Her 70 lbs against my 170...and she tossed me around like a rag doll! By the time I got some salve somewhere on her front end, she had broken my sunglasses, stomped me a half dozen times, and I had bruises from my neck to my ankle. Just saying that a size mis-match between human and beast may not mean a whole lot.

About the only saving grace was that there was no one around to watch this little doe practice her jujitsu on me... When I got home, I told folks I had slid down a mountainside. Everyone believed me.

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

I hate rodeos. They do calf roping near here. The one time I went the poor calves were skinny and had bloody legs with rope burns. I've burned my hands on the lead rope, but never enough to draw blood and it hurts!

They also do a wild horse race near here. I hate it! I always wonder what will happen to those horses after that. If anyone tries to train them they are going to have one hell of a traumatized horse on their hands!

The only thing I think is okay is team penning and sorting. The bull riding is okay because I figure the riders are more likely to get hurt than the animals.

I don't like most cowboys. I've met too many wife beaters, men who talk down to women, and people who's idea of training is to beat their horse into submission. For every nice cowboy I've met, I've probably met 10 that I would be happy never seeing again. Sometimes I think the only decent horsemen around here are either farriers, vets, or really old men.
