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.
