One of the very few photos I managed to take at the Goomeri new year’s rodeo…

The rodeo clowns/bullfighters do an amazing job protecting the bullriders and haldling the cattle, they well and truly put their bodies on the line!

    Wow! What great timing!! Hope he didn’t get tagged!

  • Thanks Kristi :) I don’t know how but he managed to skidaddle out of there several times – he spent a LOT of time with that bull with it’s head up his rear but managed to outstep him :)
