... bulls. First a brass band comes out and while they play the bull fighter and his team parade around the arena in their finest bull fighting clothes. After the parade men on horseback carrying lances enter the ring and purposely stick their lances into the bulls shoulder muscles. The bulls are all three years old, have very sharp horns, and most importantly, are bred to fight. In fact there is great prestige and wealth for ...
