Note: This fabulous photo was taken by Dutch photographer Ellen Van Deelen. Her work with rats is amazing.
At a fundraiser for the Eastern Washington University--and rodeo team, I rode the bull. I earned the fancy silver and gold belt buckle at a Ride and Tie Championship. I would not win one for bull riding. Seconds after this was taken, I was on my back. Fortunately I didn't have to worry about getting stomped. The guy had no feet.
