Headin' up the chute

 

This week, Some photo's from a roping contest held on a ranch belonging to Elizabeth's friend, Wayne,  just outside of Flagstaff Arizona. U.S.A.

These are the steers being brought out of their pen, into the release chute. The steers wear the dressing around their horns to protect them from rope burns.

Monty... keepin' 'em in line!! I love that the black steer is still trying to eat his lunch, on the go! Terrific shot, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: He did a good job, yes, I hadn't noticed that, thanks, Elizabeth. It was a great day.
this is a great action shot Frank and i like the depth between the front of the steers to the rider in back...
i'm glad that they provide the some protection for the steers....petersmile

I do like the head on view here on the resigned look on the face of the leading steers - "Here we go again". One seems not to have finished its food before it was time to go. A cracking shot.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan,this was an event I had been looking forward to, I hope I've done it justice, It wasn't easy...smile

It looks like one way traffic Frank.
Frank L Croston.: They were on a roundabout, Andrew, in at one end, run out, get caught, start all over again! I did feel a bit sorry for them, but they were looked after.
Great action shot, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Pauline.

Good action here Frank, minced beef comes out the other end of the chute? smile
