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 or her boots to call himself a cowboy -- or cowgirl -- and mean it.

Name: Chet Johnson Age: 32 Hometown: Sheridan, Wyoming Event: Saddle bronc

I've been to RodeoHouston ten times now.

My favorite part about RodeoHouston is...everything. And the size of this place. It's like ten times bigger than anything we see.

When I'm not rodeoing, I spend plenty of time with my family, spending time at the ranch. And I'm all about Randy Travis, so I'd probably be listening to him.

If I wasn't rodeoing, I'd still be a cowboy, training these horses.
