NEWSLETTER American Bucking Bull, Inc. May 25, 2012

Pueblo Recap: The bulls steal the show Pueblo was an event-filled weekend which had ABBI members on their toes! It started with the Junior Futurity and Open Futurity on Friday which saw a first-ever tie between two Junior Members for both the junior and the open events! Congratulations to Kaleb King and Wyatt Crowder.

Bucking Bulls. The champion of the PBR's First Round was Cody Nance riding Boyd/Floyd’s Heebee Geebee, who placed third that night. Saturday’s festivities began with the season opener of the Back Seat Bucker’s Futurity. The bulls were in fine form and were treated to a full production, as if they were at a Built Ford Tough Series event.

Friday night’s BFTS Maturity came out with two winners: Poker Face of Box K Cattle and Cat Ballou of Diamond S

This is something the bulls should probably get used to. After seeing the bulls buck, announcer Matt West tweeted ‘Had a blast at @BackSeatBuck-

ers...(The) Future of the @abbinow & @PBR looks impressive.’ The night after the young bulls bucked, fans witnessed some of the best bull riding in the world. The ABBI Classic bulls were a definite challenge for the top PBR riders. Ryan Dirteater didn’t last the 8 seconds on event winner 20U Shepherd Hills Tested, and there was a five-way tie for second best bull of the night. Pueblo and PBR also hosted the Wild Wild West Festival the whole weekend, where attendees could visit booths, eat fair food, ride carnival rides, and listen to bands play.

Reader Poll: What are the 5 Best Bucking Bulls of All Time? Mouse Trap, Sports Machine (Lyons), D105, +99 Hollywood, and 81 Skat Kat. IMO... –Trent West

I have to say red rock, Dillinger, Bodacious, Gunslinger, and the last which I think (will) be a legend soon to come (is) Bushwacker. -Zack Alverson

Here’s what our Facebook & Twitter readers had to say when we asked their opinion on the world’s best bucking bulls.

Bodacious, Red Wolf, Little Yellow Jacket, Tornado, Blueberry Wine -Geri Hibblen Jackson

Hollywood, Moody Blues, Blueberry Wine, Red Wolf and Bodacious. Herrington owned 4 of them at the same time for a reason. They got their hooves tested on the truck for a long time . -Duston Hull 

Hmmmm. Good question how do you rank 'em or even pick? A good start would be: Gunslinger, Mudslinger, Yellow Jacket and Jr., Bodacious and well VORTEX. If you don’t know that one look him up - Cross Lazy S out of Ulysses, KS. (His) career ended WAY too early. -Steve Johnson Little Yellow Jacket, Blueberry Wine, Mossy Oak Mudslinger, Dillinger, Red Wolf. -@PBRCowgirl
