Did you know?

Two bulls you'll see at this weekend's Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough event have ties to Idaho.

The bulls "Slippery Devil," and "Californication," are owned by Chester Conklin out of Parma, Idaho. (That's the same town connected to thoroughbred racehorse Rousing Sermon from this year's Kentucky Derby).

You probably won't be able to miss the1,800 pound, 4-year-old Slippery Devil. 

Rider Matt Bohon drew the 1,800 pound, striped brindle bull -- who will be the fourth beast out of the chute on Saturday night.
You should keep your eyes on a big, black bull in the photo above. His name is Californiacation.

Background on Californiacation: He is an embryo transfer calf out of one of Conklin's best cows that he sold to PBR World Champion Kody Lostroh as a pregnant recip, and then purchased him back as a new herd sire last fall. He's 4 years old.
Californication will be number 31 on the bucking order with Chad Besplug riding him.

If you're able to go, I hope you enjoy the event.
