the boys and i went with my parents to the saturday night performance of the rodeo. that was the night the horse passed out! yes, that's what i said. a bucking horse came out of the chute and immediately slammed into the fence and collapsed! i mean....not moving, not breathing, nothing. it was very unsettling! about 1 minute into the drama, blake looked at me and said, "you're a nurse mom....go help him!" i couldn't help but smile! i was flattered that he thought i might actually be able to help! anyway, the horse finally jumped up and stumbled around. they said he knocked the wind out of himself when he hit the fence! the boys were so excited when he got up. brady said,"thank you Lord, he's not dead!"
i know, what kind of mother puts her children on the back of a real bull??!! must have been the cotton candy talking!
