Gayndah - The Rodeo!

By far my favourite experience of the weekend was the Sunday afternoon Rodeo. It was insanity and awesomeness rolled into one. I would rather arm wrestle a biker than step foot into that arena with one of those massive beasts on the loose.

The least insane feat (still requiring loads of skill) was the barrel racing:

These girls were really working it!

A short interlude to showcase the fresh-faced cowboys and gals, and one not-so-fresh-faced one with an awesome mo:
Watch this poor little calf being chased down and tied up like a Christmas ham:
Some bucking broncos:
Steer-wrestling!!!! Seriously.
Bull riding! Country people are seriously mad! They do this shit for fun!!

  1. Nice shots! Wow it all looks so surreal these days. I've been away too long to remember this sort of culture exists. In my mind its all blue skies and beaches. Had forgotten the "real" country. Hope you had fun despite the cold. You know cold has a new meaning for us these days but that does look miserable weather : )

  2. Thanks! Well, this culture is also so strange to me. I've been out in the country before, but this is something else!

  3. Kat,
    Those are amazing!
    Thanks for making it a wonderful weekend!
