They Call Me Mellow Yellow

WNFR selected bull, 3728 Yellowhair, is a double bred Berger bucking bull selected for his first appearance at the PRCA’s Super Bowl of events, the WNFR.

Described as more mellow than yellow, at least on the outside of the chutes, his bragging rights include Berger bloodlines running thru his genes. A son of Little Yellow Jacket and out of Berger bred cow, 3728 established eleven unanswered outs on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association chart and eight appearances on the CBR Mahindra Road to Cheyenne in 2015. 

Statistically 3728 shows a 76% buck off average, remaining unridden in PRCA competition. But three time WNFR qualifier Chandler Bownds used him for 91.5 points during the Casa Ford Tuff Hedeman Championship Bull Riding round on his way to a second place finish in Tuff Hedeman’s long-standing El Paso event. 

“Chandler made the best ride of the year and was probably the best out Yellowhair has had,” commented Hurst Pro Rodeo owner, Lyndal Hurst. According to Lyndal, one of his rankest outs was with CBR World Champion Sage Kimzey during the final round of Rodeo Houston where he bucked off the Hurst Pro Rodeo bull. 

“Yellowhair is a special animal. He’s got the power that you would expect from a bull his size but he’s also got the finesse of a bull half his size. He’s just a great athlete and he’s a pet too!” said Kimzey who would look forward to a rematch in Vegas.

Yellowhair would make four more trips to CBR competition bucking off four cowboys before Eli Vastbinder would post an 87.5 on him at the World Finals at Cheyenne Frontier Days. 

Yellowhair’s average bull score is 21 points which indicates plenty of fire coming out of the chutes, but according to his chauffeur, Lyndal Hurst, he is just a big family pet that anyone can get close to and he is easy to be around. 

This first time WNFR bull qualifier made his first appearance on the professional circuits in 2013 in limited aged competitions, but his outs were minimal until 2015 where he was seen in 21 different cities showcasing his talents on all three professional levels of bull riding. 

Stay tuned as there might be a possible rematch as three NFR bull riders have been on him. Chandler Bownds, Brett Stall, and Sage Kimzey.
