Making it to the biggest rodeo of the year is a goal for every cowboy and cowgirl in the world. But, there are others who are more excited of their animal is selected to compete at the 10 day event as well.

Congratulations to Painted Poney Championship Rodeo in Lake Luzerne, NY! They will be represented at the National Finals Rodeo with a bucking bull they call Cocktail Diarrhea!

You read that correctly. The name may be a bit odd, but the bull, Cocktail Diarrhea, is one of the toughest for cowboys to stay on for a full 8 second ride! It is a huge deal for a rodeo and livestock company to have a bull selected to be a part of the biggest rodeo of the year!

The National Finals Rodeo is back to it's home in Las Vegas and it all starts this week!

The Wrangler NFR, which returns to the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas Dec. 2-11, will have a record-setting competition payout of $10,257,048. This amount includes guaranteed prize money of $1.2 million for all NFR qualifiers and $9,057,048 in competition prize money.

We have some exciting rodeos in the Buffalo and Western New York area every summer. The Ellicottville Rodeo, The Attica Rodeo and the Gerry Rodeo all draw some of the best competitors and stock from around the region. Yes, New York State has produced some fantastic cowboys and cowgirls over the years. Now we can add some great livestock and a world class bucking bull to the list. Even if the name is a little ...interesting.
