Des Moines PBR 2013

Saturday my dad, sister, and I went up to Des Moines to the Built Ford Tough PBR event. We went to the Saturday night performance and got to see the normal short go round as well as the 15/15 bucking battle which aired on CBS yesterday. The 15/15 has the 15 best cowboys against the 15 best bulls which is always awesome to watch. I took my new fancy camera but my battery went low before the stinking thing started so I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted but I got a few good ones. Before the event we got to meet a few bull riders including Kody Lostroh, Jory Markiss, and Brendon Clark. I had met Brendon last year at a touring pro event in Council Bluffs Iowa. We had also met Kody Losroh last year in Des Moines. We were parking our car and we pulled up next to this car and out came Kody Lostroh. So we stopped and talked with him and got a pic with him which was pretty cool. It was also neat that stock contractor Paige Stout and her bulls were at this event. She is an 18 year old girl from Texas who is hauling some pretty amazing bulls. I've had the opportunity to talk to her over FB. She is a great girl and is very strong about her faith and I am sure she is going to go very far in her stock contracting career and I hope someday I get to meet her in person. Here are some of the pictures and videos I got last night. I hope you all have a great week!
