I just read you are at 2012 Calgary Stampede, doing an assessment of stress levels in the bucking stock. Looking forward to your findings.
Thanks for your reply. Temple. What behavioural markers would you use to assert that the bucking animals have low levels of stress?
Why do most, if not all, broncs, gape their mouths while flanked?
Training these animals to buck involves the use of the flank strap. They don't buck, without the flank strap. How is that training the animal?
Temple, what is your opinion of animal handling at the rodeo? I'm curious. I know that you strive to keep their lives stress free. How does this equate in rodeo?
