The wind is whipping across the prairie from the north making the cold feel like needle pricks on any exposed skin. It must be time for the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo since it seems to be perpetually accompanied by inclement weather. The cowboys on the arena floor seem to enjoy performing indoors, and probably makes the landings a little softer than the frozen ground outside. Nice to see that skills developed over hundreds of years of practical ranching are still being put to good use.
