Open the gate and let him roll....roll to the ground! The sheep fell to the ground 3 steps out of the gate! And fell on JJ! He's fine, but it shook him up and hurt his leg a bit. It was such a bad ride that they told him he could do a "re-ride." He told the judge he didn't his re-ride. Afterwards, talking to Papa Jerry, he said the sheep was trying to go down in the shoot before they opened the gate! We were doomed before we started.
I was a little disapppointed that he didn't want to do it, but it was fine. So.....there are two weeks left, not sure what he'll think about next week! I just want him to finish. More than that, I really want him to get one good ride and enjoy it! We of course are proud of him every time that he just tries!
He might get the "hard luck" award.....but he would also get "best lookin' cowboy" award too!
Love you, JJ!
This is another Mutton Buster.....Casey.
