Calgary Stampede

Yep, have to agree with the animal rights crowd.
The stress put on these animals in order to showcase cowboys is nothing short of cruel. Every year there are horses killed during the chuck wagon race.
Very entertaining eh!

Speaking of Cowboys, look up John Ware.
Very interesting stories on his life as a black cowboy.

Re: Calgary Stampede

I have been watching the Calgary Stampede , on and off. I saw the opening parade , some bull riding and some chuck wagon races.
. .. In the Chuck wagon races , I was always on the edge of my seat. " If one of those wagon wheels hook together " half mile of hell stretch " would be just that.
One Chuck wagon driver was banned and fined $10,000.
Steep.
