Here’s another weekend Western image. Like yesterday’s post, this was taken in Lebanon, Oregon a few years back at Gorham’s Bucking Bulls.

The guys were up on the shoot, helping a rider get settled onto a bull.

The cowboy on the left, Kirk, is now my son-in-law. He no longer rides bulls, but has switched sports to bronc riding (bucking horses). He came in second place at the last rodeo he rode in a couple weeks ago and won some prize money.

The guy on the right is Nick, of Scio, Oregon. His mom and I were in the Linn County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse together (wilderness search and rescue on horseback).

I watched the two guys in the middle ride bulls, but don’t know their names.

This is another of my all-time favorite shots. The four white straw hats in a row. The faces all partially hidden…I really love this photo. I also like that from right to left the hats get more worn out and beat up. Notice that?

Happy Sunday!

  3. funny how the hats get beat up! v.nice!

  4. Cowboy hats take a lot of abuse – flying off cowboy’s heads as they ride bulls; landing in the dust; getting trampled, that sort of thing.
