The latest writing from our resident Cowboy Poet, Parker Jordan

     

Been bucked a time or two

Gallagher electric fence for horse

With my flat brim hat and my tall boots and big rowels; I took my first step to ride that old callous
It's okay to get bucked off a time or two 
They kick and rear, twist and turn, next thing you know they fart you off an your on your rear 
I grabbed that halter and marched proudly out to the pasture and haltered that ol mustang mare...
I threw my ol ranch saddle on her...
Pinning her ears trying to get a piece of me I cinched that cowhide down tight.
now I have asked Cowboys about the bronc ballet some say to rake and spur get aggressive use your Spurs jab them gut hooks into there side bust em into a run its easier to ride... others say sit back a little and drop your heels try it one time son see how it feels
Maybe jerk em side ways a time or two but stay relaxed now don't get tense...
But Remember everyone's been bucked off a time or two 
 ....Others say the best way to handle a snorty horse is to let some other idiot ride him... 
Remember if you see your stirrups slap above the saddle you've probably been bucked off...
Now back to that ol mustang mare... I threw on a hackamore and stuffed my mecate into my belt climbed on up there and there she goes bucking and brawling like a bat out of hell and all I remember is to...
Sit back a little and drop my heels keep that slack pulled tight although everyone loves watching a good wreck I was fixing to not be the laugh of the day...
I got a aggressive and used my spurs busted her in to a run and rode that ol mustang mare
