What happened to take care of business bull?
Takin' Care of Business appeared at the 1990 National Finals Rodeo. He was then retired and put out to stud until he died in 1999. Frost is buried near his hero and mentor, Freckles Brown, in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Hugo, Oklahoma.
That bull was called Taking Care Of Business, owned by Bad Company Rodeo Company, the bull on the right. The bull that Lane wanted to ride because he had been unridden in his professional career was Red Rock, owned by Growney Brothers Rodeo Company.
Four days later, on Sunday, July 30, 1989, Lane drew the bull named "Takin' Care of Business". After successfully completing his ride he dismounted. Lane was then hit by the bull, breaking his ribs and severing a main artery. He died within moments.
At the PBR end-of-season World Finals held every year in October, three- to four-year-old bulls compete for a chance of winning $200,000 [£150,000].

Bodacious is most well known for his serious injury to bull riding icon Tuff Hedeman. Not long after, Bodacious also seriously injured Scott Breding. His owner, Sammy Andrews, then retired Bodacious.

Brent Thurman's death
Sunday, December 11, 1994, was the first time a bull riding incident resulted in the death of a bull rider at an NFR when Brent Thurman was stomped on and killed by Red Wolf. At the time, Red Wolf weighed 1,800 pounds (820 kg), a very large bull.
Home to Bodacious
In one room is a memorial to the Andrews' legendary animal athlete, Bodacious. Sammy Andrews proudly wears a buckle awarded to him as owner of the best bucking bull at a National Finals Rodeo.
The bucking bull has long been the embodiment of the American rodeo, and it takes just four seconds for a strong young bull to reap its owner as much as $50,000 in prize money.
Red Rock is one of rodeo's most famous bulls because in the 309 outs during his PRCA career between 1983 and 1987, he was never ridden a single time.
Did Red Rock ever get ridden?
Red Rock #007 (January 1, 1976 – June 8, 1994) was an American bucking bull. He competed in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). Bull riders attempted to ride Red Rock 309 times and not one rider was able to ride him until the eight-second whistle in his professional career.
Bodacious will forever be linked to the career of bull rider Tuff Hedeman. Bodacious already had a reputation when he and Hedeman faced off in 1993. After failing to ride him the required 8 seconds on two occasions, Hedeman rode Bodacious for a masterful, near perfect 95 points in November 1993.
Sumner bought Bodacious for $700 years ago and sold him to Sammy Andrews for $7,500 in 1992. Today, Sumner estimates the bull to be worth more than $30,000.

A sufficient number of bulls, each judged to be of good strength, health, agility, and age, are selected to perform. The rider and bull are matched randomly before the competition, although starting in 2008, some ranked riders are allowed to choose their own bulls from a bull draft for selected rounds in PBR events.
Once bulls are retired from bucking, they are sent back to the ranch to live out their days. Depending on the bull, some contractors will use him as a breed bull for the upcoming season. Retirement can come at any age. As long as the bull still bucks and still wants to perform at rodeos, he will.

Bodacious was known for his explosive exit out of the chute. He started out with such force it was not uncommon to see his belly from the top of the back of the chute. He was first ridden in 1993, and it took two years before another bull rider stayed on for eight seconds.
Last year's NFR was switched to Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, home of MLB's Texas Rangers, amid the pandemic. In return for helping facilitate the temporary move to Texas, a year was added to Las Vegas' NFR contract that now expires in 2025.
Unfortunately, Bodacious succumbed to illness and died at age 12 on the Andrews Ranch in 2000. He was buried near Sammy and Rena's home in Texas. However his legacy lives on in Bo Howdy, who was sired by Bodacious and debuted in 2005 as a PBR bull.

Red Rock's abrupt finish was, by contrast, a result of circumstance rather than any creative choices by writer Paul Walker. What a terribly bumpy journey it was turning into. Last spring's shuttering had followed an August 2017 “hiatus”, caused by the sale of the show's set at the old John Player factory in Dublin.
Wade Leslie is said to be the only bull rider ever to score a perfect 100 and that was in 1991. Sports history was made Saturday evening in Tulsa, Oklahoma, during the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) event at BOK Center.

A famous rodeo bull, dubbed 'The World's Most Dangerous Bull', has died in his retirement pen at a Texas ranch. Bodacious was a 12-year-old, 1,800-pound bull that cowboys found nearly impossible to ride.
He was also considered the world's most dangerous bull. After Bodacious seriously injured several bull riders, his owner Sammy Andrews retired the notorious bovine in 1995, after 135 outs and only 8 qualified rides.
“We radiographed it and discovered that he had a very serious fracture of the talus bone in the hock.” The hock refers to the ankle joint in the hind leg of an animal. The hock joint allows the animal to carry weight and push off the ground, which is necessary to run, jump and — in Hard Labor's case — buck.
He's worth $108,000 and he's missing. And the man who bred the six-figure beast reckons he's been stolen by "some idiot". He is an Angus bull officially called Texas Powerplay P613. Powerplay, as we'll call him, has gone missing from Kelly Angus, a top cattle stud about 100km north-east of Melbourne.

This spring, Catalina Langlitz will graduate with her associate's degree in animal science, ready to take on her next challenge.
It's the amount of time a bull rider must stay on the bull to receive a score. For eight frantic seconds, the bull riders can't touch their free hand to the bull or to themselves. In the course of a weekend event, a cowboy may have 3 to 4 opportunities to ride if they advanced to the final round.
According to the sport's website: “The flank strap never covers or goes around a bull's genitals, and no sharp or foreign objects are ever placed inside the flank strap to agitate the animal.” Apparently, wanting a man off your back that badly is just a genetic gift. No protection! The riders don't wear cups.
