if you think that the prods and tail twisting makes them mean, go in a pen with them and see how it goes. I'm sure you could walk right up and pet them. I agree, pretty sure you've never been behind the chutes or to a rodeo.

They don't abuse the animals. Flank straps are like belts, twisting the tail, just makes them move, doesn't really hurt them, and the 'prod' is also used to get them to move. How else do you expect people to get them to move, lead them, walk behind them? No, that is when serious injuries can occur because they want to buck and do their thing. This is what they are bred for. The animals would be more upset if they didn't get to do this.

I heard when I went to a Rodeo that they feed them Alfalfa, and expensive feed everyday! They do all this to compete 36 times for 8 seconds a year!

Yes, some rodeos are cruel, I do agree with you partly...

Hannah, those animals are bred and born to buck, they are trained to have more style when bucking too. I bet you've never been to a rodeo either.

Love the movie, sad, but I don't see how 8 seconds is a horse movie, rodeo movie yeah, but not necessarily a horse movie.

Note from Sydney: I know, it's really not a horse movie.. Kinda related though, so I included it in the list.. :)

rodeos are cruel. some people never see what is going on behind the chutes but what they are doing is very cruel.

Flank straps, prods and tail twisting makes the animals perform what they are not (wild, rank and mean). These animals are not born to buck, they are abused animals.
