Cowboy Diaries 2014: Juel Hazen, Rodeo Is a Way of Life
Photo by Brian Austin
True cowboys are hard to find, but not at the Houston Rodeo. Life on the road leads them here this time every year for the biggest rodeo in the world, where they'll ride and wrangle livestock for cash and glory. Each day, Hair Balls will spotlight one person with enough dirt on his boots to call himself a cowboy -- and mean it.

I've been to Rodeo Houston about five or six times.
I started rodeoing young. I grew up with it. It's always been something I do.
My favorite part about rodeoing is the way of life and the community of it. My friends are all here and we all around each other all the time. We all love doing this and love getting to be together.
When I'm not rodeoing, I'm ranching.
If I wasn't rodeoing, I'd be ranching.
