|Wyoming State Logo Bucking Bronco|
Did you ever wonder where the Logo originated? Apparently it dates back to World War I when used by Wyoming troops. It is supposedly based on a real horse and rider. The horse, "Steamboat," competed in rodeos between 1901 and 1914 when he became infected with blood poisoning as a result of contact with a barbed wire fence during a thunderstorm.
One of my brother Rick's favorite comments when things are kinda tough is, "Buck up, little Buckaroo". It seems to interject an element of courage into a situation. A good quote to remember in challenging times. Grandma would agree.
