What's in a Name?

Back in the day a number of local cowboys tried their luck on the local stock of bucking broncos; however, the most famous to come out of the Steamboat rodeo scene was not a cowboy, but rather a horse by the name of Pin Ears. Pin Ears was a famous bucking horse owned by a local rancher named Lou Long. Pin Ears was known as the “Routt Country Terror” and was so popular for bucking contests that he became one of the bucking broncos in the Denver Exhibition in 1905.
