Cowboy Diaries 2014: Hunter Cure
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 boots to call himself a cowboy -- and mean it.

Name: Hunter Cure.
Hometown: Holliday, Texas.
Event: Steer wrestling.
I've been to Rodeo Houston four times. It's always a great time.
I started rodeoing when I was 14 and got into steer wrestling. I grew up around all this though.
My favorite part of rodeoing is it's unique atmosphere. This rodeo is one of the only ones held in a stadium, and it was the only one until last year. It's a great experience and it brings in professionals from all across the country.
When I'm not rodeoing, I'm ranching. My family has a ranch and I run some Mexican cattle.
If I wasn't rodeoing, I'd be making money somehow. I don't know at what though.
