    It doesn’t seem quite enough considering how banged up these guys get. But I still wish I could have been there! Love rodeo. Really love it!

    I’ve wondered about that myself quite a bit – it’s a unique fraternity and a lifestyle for sure – The Rodeo Circuit and how some of these guys survive – can’t be easy. injuries are VERY common – as you might imagine. In fact, lots of these guys perform with injuries. I suppose most come from working ranches, farms, whatever – and that sustains them if there’s no Payday. There are many Rodeos, but most don’t pay much …. and probably a pretty short career in some events. Yeah.
