    Money is at the bottom of their list of priorities and they're as tough of a individual you will ever meet.
    That's the current mythology.

    In all fairness, it should be said that although it's a serious well researched book, by a cowboy enthusiast, the author is an English country and western singer, whose real name is Dr Samuel Hutt. His day job is gynaecology.

    I grew up in a place where the three day rodeo was the biggest in the country.

    It was more a matter of how a parent could prevent it instead of letting it happen.

    It is not my say what my children become as adults. Not at all. My duty and goal is to do what I can so they are prepared to live fulfilling lives and to be self reliant and free.

    Oh, there's an entire poetic genre devoted to the cowboy. But some don't have to read and romanticize cowboys and cowgirls; they know them.

    I love watching bull riding..most of those circuit riders are pretty crippled up..I should imagine it is not a long career...

    But the stars of the show are the clowns..how brave are they?
