Animal Friends and Helpers
Rocket earned his name by launching professional cowboy Landon Macek to rodeo’s number one spot in tie-down roping. The horse wasn’t always so highly regarded. Landon found him as a longshot in a Quarter Horse claim race filled with other winless horses. And the prize steed came in dead last. Funny thing about smart horses—they just don’t see the point in running two-hundred-fifty yards full throttle without a good reason. Landon gave him one. Rocket loves chasing cattle.
