Cowboy Diaries: Ty Wallace

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: Ty Wallace.

I've been to Rodeo Houston this time. This is my first year. It's awesome so far.
I started rodeoing when I was little, I don't even remember how old I was. I started out riding sheep back then and then I graduated up until eventually, when I was about 14, I started riding bulls.
My favorite part of rodeoing is the traveling. I really like going places. I love getting out there and competing and doing good in my event. When I do good that's the best, that's my favorite part.
When I'm not rodeoing, I'm ranching and cowboying at home. And that's about it.
If I wasn't rodeoing, I'd be ranching. Definitely ranching.
