..more photos of the rest of the parade shortly.

 

Enjoy the rest of your day! I’m counting on a lot of fun at the rodeo. Today’s performance starts in less than an hour. I’m going to drive over there now. The traffic was crazy last night. Better drive safely and take the time it takes ;)

 

See Ya!

The One Armed Bandit – 2014 Red Bluff Round-Up – FRIDAY

John Payne accidentally got electrocuted by 7200 volts. He loosed one armed in the terrible accident.

He is a rancher from Oklahoma and have been around horses all his life. He had various occupations, but is now performing as The One Armed Bandit. He has won several awards doing extraordinary shows. His shows are spectacular and his excellent horsemanship shines through. This is a man who knows his horses.

I’ve never seen anything similar to this. An excellent rider, riding his horse between his legs, moving longhorns around, and UP ON THE ROOF OF A STOCK TRAILER! Wow! If you get the chance to see one of his shows I can highly recommend that you do. Enjoy the photos!

This amazing performance was last night at the Tehama District Fairgrounds. THE ONE ARMED BANDIT also performed on the streets of Red Bluff today. He was in the annual round-up parade. The parade lasted around two hours and was very colorful. That has to be its own post (probably several.) Red Bluff is cracking today!!!

 

I’m going to try to upload some parade photos before todays rodeo starts at 2.30pm.

I sure hope you’re having fun this beautiful day!
