It's dangerous being a bullrider!

If you'll remember a while back I told y'all about baby bull riding. In case you've forgotten here's a picture of what I'm talking about. This was in July.


Well, sometimes those bulls get ornery! But, have no fear, Hunter was able to stay on for more than 8 seconds! Yay! Except, while he was hanging on so hard, the bull's horn (actually, probably handle) hit my little one and gave him a bruise. However, like any good bull rider, he got right back up and got back on the bull.


I think my older son thinks that since the little one's a year old, he can be rough with him. He makes the bull go a little too fast. I honestly don't know how the baby hangs on. I'm trying to get Mitchell to realize he still needs to be careful with him. Of course, the next day, after we had that conversation, he was playing too rough with him again, and he got another bruise. How do I make him learn? Or, is Hunter just doomed to have bruises everywhere? My poor baby!

thanks for the comment. Oh how sad, but at least he got right back up. Good for him, I know many would've just cried. I just LOVE that cow. ;)

I think it's funny how he has that cracker stuck in his mouth. He's not really eating it, it's just there.

Poor little guy...he doesn't seem too bothered my his bruises though. If he's like Cakes, he'll bounce right back!

I think he probably grow up to be a tough kid. My two yo girl is the toughest one in the house!

Our baby has bruises or scratches everywhere. I can't get a photo of that kid looking normal. I think it eventually makes them tougher though :)

Thanks for the comments, too. I'm doing a little better!
