As usual, we went to see the bulls most nights. We sat on the rails as normal, to get close to the action, but there wasn't much action to be had.
Many of the bulls (heiffers) were quite young, and had no idea what they were meant to do, and the older, larger ones were so used to the people around them, that they didn't do anything!
One night, one of the bulls knew how to get onto the table, which came as quite a shock to the people standing on it at the time.
To be honest, I don't think that the bull activities in the town are very nice. There seems to be little respect for the bulls, and the ring is quite small, resulting in little choice of movement for the bulls. If they could make tha area bigger, it might be better, but I don't think that the people would behave any nicer. One night, several of the lads had lazer lights, which they kept trying to sine in the animals eyes. (They did get told off for it though.)
Ah well - each to his own.
