Who is this? Answered

Posted Wednesday, February 29, 2012, at 10:34 AM

 

I asked a question a few blogs ago, about who this man was.  No one has said anything.  So, here's a hint.  This is about 30-40 years ago.  Anyone know?

 

 

Buck sugar pop kid

 

Again, I want to encourage any of you to read his book, and maybe more importantly, to watch this movie.  He comes from as bad/harsh a childhood as any.  And rather than make excuses for his own bad behavior, he rose way above it, and is an inspiration.  It is proof that we all have our own choices to make. 

Continue a life of cruelty, or become someone / something to be looked up to.  Life IS a Choice.

I've seen this Man brought nearly to tears, and I've seen him angry.  But I've never seen him give in and show his temper.  That is to be respected, in any circumstance.

Well, cool! Someone is playing/biting. Going to wait a bit to see if anyone knows. Probably no one will, but maybe!

I don't think anyone could forget those shirts if they saw them.

Buck Brannaman or something like that. They called him Buckshot

Buck Brannaman is on the Left. His Dad, and brother. They were the Idaho Trick Ropers way back in the 70's for Sugar Pops Cereal!

Was the fellow in the middle left handed but learned to rope right handed?

I know Buck ropes Right Handed. I do not know his brother, nor his Dad

I didn't have a clue.

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
