A candid shot of old Rough Going in the chute, having a cuddle….
I’ve been after this kind of shot for a little while, always a pat here and and cuddle there, in the fast pace world of rodeo they are easy to miss, but are a testament to the fact that, for the most part, cowboys care about the horses.
The horse in this of course has a story, not so long ago he was taken ill by a bad cold which could have proven fatal (and very nearly did) he came back from the brink with a lot of TLC, the rodeo at which I took this is his first day back in action, and he sure didn’t disappoint..
