Check out this Bull Kicking & Chasing the Barrel- With The Barrel man Inside!
This Clip from Wrangler Network is from action at the Fort Worth Rodeo.
We see Barrel man Troy Lerwill stuck in the Barrel, & The Bullfighters are Dusty Tuckness & Andy Burelle.
A lot of people don’t understand the difference between a Bullfighter and the Barrel man and/or a rodeo clown.
In the early days of rodeo, the Bullfighter did it all. He clowned, entertained and protected the cowboys. It was a rather tough job for one man. Now in professional rodeo you will have at least two bullfighters and a barrel man who do nothing but protect the fallen cowboys after their dismount. Working the Barrel is the Barrel man and he often provides the comedy as the rodeo clown as well. Of course, his job is not all comedy either.
The bullfighters and the Barrel men work hand in hand during freestyle bullfighting.
In this clip,you can see how The Barrel man came to be stuck in the barrel.
The replay shows a rider on the ground & the Bullfighters swing into action.
The bull is Irritated….and Troy becomes the Kicked Can!!!
