(Ron) When you go down to the rodeo, there’s folks that you see as part of the show. They’re a vital part of the rodeo’s plan: I speak of the bullfighters and the barrel man. They wear a painted smile and a goofy hat, suspenders and floppy pants at that. Their humor makes you smile. It’s not deadpan, those funny-lookin’ bullfighters and the barrel man. But when it’s time for the rough stock events, it’s them down inside the arena fence. If a rider’s hung up or a cowboy’s in a jam, he’ll get saved by the bullfighters and the barrel man. Those bullfighters put their lives on the line, to buy a downed cowboy some precious time. They’re praised by the cowboys and loved by the fans, those professional bullfighters and the barrel man. Comedian and athlete, rolled into one, They help the cowboys as part of the fun. If they can’t dodge a bull, then no one can. I speak of the bullfighters and the barrel man. So let’s salute this brave hero who displays his skills at the rodeo. Thanks for protecting cowboys since rodeo began:
Those brave bullfighters and the barrel man. Happy Trails.
