Your title enticed me because I truly enjoy rodeos and feel for all those sore cowboys at the end of the day. I, too loved the voice of the MC, the perfectly chosen words to describe each scene and the rhythm of the whole piece. Yeah, I agree, this one is a winner!

My favorite for the week! Love, love, love. Of course for me, anything cowboy is great, but the message you wove into this piece...awesome. Thanks for taking us along for the ride!
Delightful, with an authentic feel and a message worth pondering.

Big congrats on your well-deserved win! This one had me chucklin' and rootin' for the cowboy all through!
I think I rode that horse once. Loved it. Certainly it's been written by someone who has sat a saddle a time or two. Congratulations.

This is priceless. I was almost there riding the colt with you. Congratulations on your 1st place win.
This was absolutely PRICELESS! My nephew rides broncs bareback. This piece made me feel as if I were right there with him, watching it all unfold in person! LOVED IT!!
