The B Bar D Rodeo Company is the heart and muscle of small town rodeo in the Pacific Northwest. Three generations of this Oregon family work side by side traveling on the road to earn a living.Audiences flock to their rodeos not only for the sports spectacle, but also for a view into a disappearing way of life. But nothing steals the show more than the family dog Jake, the only known Australian Shepherd to work in the live arena corralling bulls that outweigh him by thousands of pounds. This short documentary film is a striking view about what tradition, livelihood and family means in the modern American West.
