Show Animals/Rodeo Animals Have a Better Life Than Most
Show/rodeo animals live a pampered life, that not just any barn yard animal gets. The kids that take care of these animals develop a strong relationship with them, and provide them with the best of the best. The hard work it takes to win, really shows through during a show or rodeo. Here are some reasons why show/rodeo animals live a great life.
- The caretaker probably doesn’t lock their house but always locks the barn. “I don’t want anyone messing with my pig when I’m not there.”
- Locks are everywhere. "I locked my pen because I'm afraid someone will touch my goat while I'm gone."
- Their animal lives in an air conditioned barn. “It’s hot outside and I want my heifer to keep her hair!”
- They will fix the barn before they fix their house. “My horse needs a roof more than I do. I have a tarp on my house, that’ll do.”
- Their animal’s hair is nicer than their own. “Yes I’m aware I look like I was struck by lightning, but did you see the legs on that steer!”
- They feed their livestock before they feed themselves. “I like to spend my morning with Bertha.”
- They have a ton of products for their animal’s hair. “Show sheen was sent from God himself.”
- Clean shavings every day. “This isn’t your average barn yard animal, this is a blue ribbon winner.”
- They are celebrities in their own way. “When they walk into the ring, everyone is staring. The lights are bright on them in the arena.”
- Only the best feed. “I don’t care that the feed cost $20 a bag, it’s worth it!”
- They own more accessories than most girls. “Five halters, and more saddles than the amount of horses I have.”
- The trailer the animal rides in is better than their caretakers vehicles. "The trailer really makes Sally stand out."
- They are constantly getting their pictures taken. "Fred seriously makes my selfies so much better."
- They are brought up in every conversation, and they make it hard to leave them. "I don't want to go to school, I'll miss my horse too much!"
- People are always with them. "When you spend money on something, you don't just leave it alone."
