Some Of Those Babies Are Gonna Be Cowboys

I'm no cowgirl,
not even close.

And while I have nothing against them,
I don't really like horses much at all.

I scrunch my nose at those animal smells
and try to find a fresh breeze to breathe.

But when the rodeo came to town,
a backstage pass was hard to resist.

I loved talking to those cowboys
and see them smile and laugh.

It is hard to understand why...
Why they risk life and limb here.

But there is something about
the thrill of the ride
they can't seem to resist.

And yeah, I'm no young cowgirl,
but dang, a gal can dream can't she?

My full rodeo gallery is here.

Special recognition to this cowboy 
who suffered a broken spinal cord. 
Prayers that he might walk again.

This is fascinating- nothing like I could ever see over here. I'm not a fan of horses but I do like to take portraits of them. Thanks so much for linking up with Weekend Walks over on my blog - glad you found me!
