This is a terrific catch - and great in B&W!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, I'm not too sure about the treatment...

The hoof marks look like gunshots in the ground Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Now you mention it Andrew, yes, they do. But, I'm pleased to say, they weren't smile

Great action here and I love the way the sand is up in the air.. You know I love this kind of pictures. Again a likey to me. Maybe you should make a book out of all of the 'cowboy' pictures!
Frank L Croston.: I keep meaning to do books of all kinds of stuff...Never do! Maybe when things have calmed down a bit I will. Thanks, Astrid.
A bit different to an English Gymkhana
Frank L Croston.: Somewhat, Bill.
You've roped us in with this creation.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary. smile

Another likey. Seems to me, to be a cowboy, you must be aged with a hanging moustache smile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, oh yes, its almost obligatory. smile
Caught at a good moment Frank. I'm assuming it is a special sort of rope to hold a loop like that.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian. Its a roping rope, very stiff.
Oh yes, Frank. All of it, especially the dirt/sand being kicked up!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ginnie, lots of dirt is good! smile
Bull on the run...
Frank L Croston.: Not for long, Larry !
A fine shot, Frank - you should have an exhibition of these in Flagstaff when you get back!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom....That would be nice.
