We always talk about the contestants if you listen to us on-air. but what about the rodeo athletes with 4 legs, yes - we mean the stock (livestock). Some of the TOP bucking bulls and horses that you are going to be watching if you are tuning in on the Cowboy Channel, come from right in our own backyard of the 701 here in North Dakota.

Dakota Rodeo Company will be featuring Bubba G, Nasty Wishes, Night Hawk, Pookie Holler, and Sky Harbor on the Bullriding along with the great horses' Bartender and Cash Deal in the Saddle Bronc. Baily Pro Rodeo hauled the horse Colorado Bulldog in the Bareback and Super Tramp in the Bullriding. Just south of Mandan is home to Mosbrucker Rodeo Company and they have their great horses Freckles and Young Guns in the Saddle Bronc Riding.
