Wolfey’s In The Barrel at the Stonyford Rodeo

04012015 - Stonyford Rodeo

Clinton “Wolfey” Selvester is the Stonyford Rodeo’s clown and barrelman for this year’s event, on May 2 and 3, 2015.

Clint is from Red Bluff and is no stranger to the world of rodeo.

At the age of 13, he was working with his uncle Don Kish. Don is a PRCA stock contractor who supplies bulls for the Growney Brothers rodeo stock company, a supplier for the Stonyford Rodeo.

At age 15, Clint hit the rodeo trail, spending summers working for the Growney Brothers Rodeo Company.

While working with the feed crew, his uncle Don offered him a proposition. Create a rodeo mascot to entertain as well as interact with the fans. Not sure what that might look like, Don gave Clint a month to come up with something.

With the help of his high school art teacher and a supportive mom, that something was a seven foot Brahma bull.

During the mascot’s first performance, rodeo fans named him “Wolfey,” after Wolfman, the only bull in rodeo history to have ever been ridden to a perfect score. Soon after, Wolfey became the first recognized mascot of the PRCA.

With his physical humor and interaction with the rodeo crowd, Wolfey became very popular on the rodeo circuit. He performed in rodeos at St. Paul, Red Bluff, Clovis, Salinas, The Pendleton Round-Up, and others.

Clint took time off from rodeo to attend college and earn a degree in multimedia design, in 2002. After college, he returned to rodeo and trained as a barrelman and rodeo clown. As such, he was asked to fill-in for top-PRCA clown and barrelman Flint Rasmussen at several Built Ford Tough PBR events, including Atlanta’s Georgia Dome.

Since then Clint has worked the California Circuit Finals, the Rolex World Cup, and has even opened for the World Champion San Francisco Giants. Knowing no limits, he has also driven right into the motorsports world by becoming the premiere entertainer “Sprocket” for the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam. As “Sprocket,” Clint worked the 2013 Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Finals XIV, in Las Vegas.

While entertaining the fans is a huge part of Clint’s job, he also takes pride in remaining a true barrelman by providing a small island of protection in the middle of the arena for both the rider and the bullfighters. Stonyford Rodeo fans are fortunate to have Clint on hand to entertain them on May 2 and 3, 2015.

Come out and see Wolfey and have a weekend of fun, food, and dancing. Get your tickets online at www.stonycreekhorsemen.org, or at any of the area businesses shown on the website. Tickets purchased in advance of the rodeo are $10 for adults and $6 for children. Tickets purchased at the gate are $15 for adults and $7 for children. Go to the website for a schedule of weekend events.
