Cowboy Diaries: Timber Moore
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, Houston News will spotlight one person with enough dirt on his boots to call himself a cowboy -- and mean it. Name: Timber Moore.
Hometown: Aubrey, Texas.
I've been to Rodeo Houston six times It's been great every year. I'll bet that's what everybody says right?
I started rodeoing when I was probably 8. My parents rodeoed a little and I picked it from them.
My favorite part of rodeoing is the atmosphere, the fans, the crowd, the competition, the whole rodeo thing. I love it.
When I'm not rodeoing, I'm hanging out with my family. I've got a little girl, she's a little over two, and my wife. That's what I like doing when I'm not doing this.
If I wasn't rodeoing, I don't know what I'd be doing. Maybe I'd ranch or do something with cattle. I've been doing this all my life. I even went to college on rodeo. I didn't graduate, dropped out to get out here and start competing instead. I can't imagine what else I'd do if I wasn't doing this.
