Ropin' and Rasslin'

Guess what I did this weekend for the first time?

Yeah, I decided I needed a new hobby that would cost a lot of money and suck up all my weekends this summer.

The Colorado Gay Rodeo Association had an open cattle practice day, so the members could practice for the upcoming summer rodeos. We're hosting the national finals in October, so it should be a pretty busy summer.

I've done some roping in the past, but I've forgotten everything I knew. Still, after about an hour or so roping the practice steer (the plastic one that couldn't move), I could do 8 for 10 from about 10 feet. But what I really enjoyed was the chute dogging. I wrestled a few steers, but none of them fell.

I guess if I was a real hired hand on a ranch, I'd be fired by now! Still, I had a lot of fun...
