Sorry, Mountain Cowgirl, but this is not a Bible Verse thread! LOL
New or not, we chose to do the "Support" and we didn't have to. We simply felt like it was a good idea and are very happy that we did it.That "Support" is pretty new here. I believe it was just last fall when Macon sold this forum. The new owners put that up here and on Cattle Today. It has mostly been ignored by people who have been here for years.
You have come on here as the self described expert on rodeo. Not knowing the people you are talking to, their knowledge level, or experience. And bring up subject like this on on Cinch jeans. Or the shape of a cowboy hat. Or which hat you plan to wear to which event. Do you really think that people here care about those subjects?
I have never felt a bit of animosity here over the fact that I rode in rodeos. And for the record I got on my first bareback bronc at a rodeo in April of 1970. The last one in August of 1981. I took up team roping shortly after hanging up my bareback riggin. I gave that up in 1993 because my kids needed a little league coach more than I needed to go to rodeos every weekend. I am certain that my rodeo career was longer than yours unless you roped off the same horse for 23 years. I worked both ends of the arena. When was the last time you crawled into the chute and nodded your head? I don't drop names because A. what they accomplished is their accomplishments not mine. B. I am not putting other peoples names out on the web. One of the men I traveled with was the 1964 world champion bull rider. He also won the NFR twice. He was at the end of his career and I was just starting mine. You can look him up if so inclined. One of my other partners went to the southeast and won a ton of championships in the IPRA. Try being a little humble and listen. You might just learn something.
