Thats no bull...well actually it is ;)

I have a funny story to tell you! I love the rodeo, especially bull riding. I don't ride the bulls I just enjoy watching others ride the bulls. Well, I went to the Bull Jam in Bonifay, Florida a few weeks ago. I was able to walk right up to this bull and get nearly eyeball to eyeball with him. I had never before been this close to a bull and it was exciting for me. We just kind of looked at each other for a while. I was thinking "Wow you are bigger than I thought you were!" Then quickly I hoped he wasn't thinking the same thing about me! Around an hour later this same bull bucked the rider off of his back, made a trip around the arena then JUMPED a 6 foot fence to get back into the pen. I guess they didnt open the gate fast enough to suit him so he let himself back in! I was shocked! I did not know they could jump!!! IF I had known that I probably would not have been that close to him!!!
Have a blessed day !
Love Lilly

Yikes that's so scary!! Maybe that's where the "cow jumped over the moon" quote starts making sense ;)

Hi Lilly, Wow that bull is beautiful but I would never underestimate him!! LOL Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

Congrats to your daughter and her engagement. I wish them many happy years together.
Hope you have a great and blessed weekend ahead.

Neat story. I have been around rodeos for the last 20 years and have watched a lot of bull rides, but have never been on one. Wish I had. Started too late getting interested in rodeo.
