'Hit them up move them out'...
No need to say that you brought me back to my early childhood. I was glued to the TV when Rawhide was on TV..... we would watch this with the kids in the neighbourhood and afterwards we would grab our guns and other gear and play 'Cowboys and Indians'....
Fabulous picture. Love the movement here.

Frank L Croston.: I was brought up on 'Cowies' as we called them, t.v. movies, they were always my favourites.
Thanks, Astrid.

Yee haw! The horses seem to be taking it o=in their stride (literally).
Frank L Croston.: I think the horses could do it themselves, Alan, they are amazing.

A great shot of these old taupees chasing whatever. You caught the action well. So, when do you start rodeo riding?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, me!? I've only ever sat on a horse once...smile
The dude on the back seems an older man. Excellent work, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: He was, Mary, but I know a 90 year old who does this! Thank you.
I think you have carved out a niche as a rodeo photographer Frank
Frank L Croston.: I wish I could go to more, Bill, its good fun.
Great shot Frank, especially in B.& W. Those horses are very muscular.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian, that they are.
You can sense the action.
Frank L Croston.: Lots of it, thanks, Andrew.
