Olathe cowboy Tuff Ramsey overshoots his steer Sunday during the steer wrestling competition Colorado Pro Rodeo Association state finals at the Mesa County Fairgrounds.

Sneaky steers

Cowboys have tough time with livestock in finals

At the Colorado Professional Rodeo Association Finals, there are no average steers, especially during the third round Sunday afternoon.
Some steers weighed nearly 600 pounds, some were quick, and nearly all the steers were crafty.
So when it came time for Olathe cowboy Tuff Ramsey to drop from his horse and grab the steer’s horns, Ramsey swiped at air.
As Ramsey dismounted at high speed during the steer wrestling finals, the steer dug in its front legs and skidded through the deep dirt at Mesa County Fairgrounds. Ramsey slid on his rear-end and the steer bolted away.
