MUN­DUB­BERA bull breed­ers Brian and Kerry King have con­firmed their “next big thing” is on its way to Bulls and Bar­rels rodeo at the Mun­dub­bera show.

It’s the new buzz around town, and Mrs King is ex­cited to show­case their bull “What’s Up” for the Mun­dub­bera rid­ers.

“We’ve got lots of good bulls but What’s Up is pretty spe­cial,” she said.

Mrs King said she was ex­cited to show­case the bull be­cause the cal­i­bre of rid­ers would be first-class.

“If rid­ers do ride them, they’ll ride them for a big score,” she said.

Mrs King said What’s Up came straight from what they call their Su­per Pen which are re­served for the big shows.

To ac­com­pa­nyWhat’s Up, the Kings will also bring bulls Kiss Me Good­bye, Show Time, Thriller, Bubba and Cut­ting Loose.

“Bubba’s an­other sen­sa­tion in the mak­ing and Cut­ting Loose is also on the way up,” she said.

Mrs King said in the lead up to the Mun­dub­bera Show the bulls were buck­ing out the gates.

“We’re re­ally re­ally busy,” she said.

“We’ll be at three dif­fer­ent rodeos the week­end be­fore the show.

“Tak­ing a load to Her­vey Bay, Ma­roochy­dore, and Day­boro. Most week­end’s we’re on the road.”

Com­ing from Mun­dub­bera’s out­skirts, Mrs King said the Bulls and Bar­rels rodeo was spe­cial. “It’s a lovely coun­try show and has some­thing for every­body,” she said.

“When I leave I al­ways feel how happy I am to be part of the com­mu­nity.”

The Mun­dub­bera Show Bulls and Bar­rels will open the gates at 2pm on Satur­day, May 9.

The rodeo will award a top prize of $1000 to the win­ner of the Open Bull Ride and rid­ers with the high­est points will com­pete at the Cen­tral Rodeo Cow­boys As­so­ci­a­tion fi­nals later this year.

AC­TION: Thrills and spills will keep the crowd en­ter­tained at the rodeo arena.

Kerry King: If rid­ers do ride them, they’ll ride them for a big score.

PHO­TOS: BRAN­DON LIVESAY AND SHIRLEY WAY
