Bushwacker to Retire at end of 2014 Season

OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma — Bushwacker is to retire at the end of the 2014 season of the PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series.

For a seven year-old bull, in my opinion, he’s going out at his the top of his prime as the best of the best and possibly the best there’s ever been.

From what I’ve learned a bull can quite often have a career lasting until they are nine years old or even more in the case of Chicken on a Chain who bucked until the age of twelve.

What are your thoughts on this decision of Julio Moreno’s? Is Bushwacker being retired early or is this the right move for the health and safety of the superstar athlete?

For sure with bulls in their older age they slow down and aren’t the same, I think they are similar to us in all reality. I’m don’t raise and take care of bulls as an owner however, so I’d like to hear your thoughts.

    As Bushwacker being the best bull of all time I guarantee that was the hardest thing having to decide for Julio, when do we say it’s time. As a contractor my self it’s a thing that becomes inevitable as the same for the bull riders. Any decision that is made is usually the right one, for the fact that you would like to see them go out on top. For us retiring Slash wasn’t an easy one, but the right one. Sure any bull can buck till there wheels fall off, but a good animal owes a contractor nothing. So when the times right the time is right. Julio is making the right decision as he see’s fit, and as a fellow stock contractor I respect that. I hope Bushwacker finishes on top this year and goes out in style. JMO. Nansen Vold.
