A calf getting a little air-time in the competition. Getting roped, then picked up and thrown to the ground and hog-tied can’t be much fun. We kept cringing every time we saw one hit the ground like this one is about to. But they’re actually quite tough and seemed no worse for wear after the ordeal. Once they were untied and left alone they seemed quite happy trotting on down the arena to join their peers and wait for the next round of harassment.
