The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame
Bernis Johnson
Born in Cleburne, Bernis Johnson's life has revolved around rodeo, joining the RCA in 1947 and developing into a three-event contestant. During the 1960's, Johnson qualified for the National Finals Rodeo six times and ranked as high as third in the PRCA All Around. He left the arena as a contestant in the late 1960's and formed B-J Bucking Stock, working with Steve Murrin and P.K. Thomas in bringing rodeo back to the Fort Worth Stockyards. After purchasing Hoss Inman's Flying I bucking stock in 1977, Johnson produced rodeos in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming, For twenty years, outstanding B.J. bucking stock were recognized at the Texas Circuit and the National Finals, with Skoal "Sippin Velvet" a 5-time champion Bareback Horse of the Year and 6-time top Bareback Horse of the National Finals and Texas Circuit Finals. Johnson's Skoal "Sippin Velvet" was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2000. Johnson was also instrumental in bringing the All Girls Rodeo and the WPRA Finals to the Cowtown Coliseum. In January 2002 Johnson sold B.J. stock to Double J Rodeo of Webster, MN, ending a rodeo career that spanned fifty years.

Not since Bernis Johnson's Sippin' Velvet, a five-time champion and member of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, won four titles in five years (1983-84 and 1986-87), has a bareback horse been so dominant.
Grated Coconut is particularly special because while he is so dominant in the arena, he is just as docile outside of it. The Stud is halter broke-something his Calgary Stampede owners did in order to more easily use him as a herd stallion-calm in the chute, and will buck willingly without the flank strap.

The 2005 living honorees include Mel Potter, Howard Harris III, Bernis Johnson and Sherry Combs Johnson.
Bernis Johnson was born in Cleburne, Texas, in 1932. He joined the Rodeo Cowboys Association (RCA) in 1947 and developed his skills in bareback, saddle bronc and bull riding. From 1961 to 1967, Johnson compiled an enviable record, consistently placing in all three roughstock events. In 1963 and 1964, he placed in 72 rodeos in bareback and bronc riding. His NFR placings include 9th Bareback, 1959; 11th Saddle Bronc, 1961; 8th Bareback and 13th Saddle Bronc, 1962; 3rd in All-Around and 6th Bareback, 1963; 8th Bronc, 1964; and 13th Bareback, 1966.
In the late 1960s, Johnson left the arena as a contestant, put together B-J Buck Stock and became involved in bringing rodeo back to the Fort Worth Stockyards. Johnson's bucking stock is recognized for awards at the Texas Circuit Finals and the National Finals.

Five-time NFR qualifier Bernis Johnson recovering from heart attack
Five-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier Bernis Johnson is back home in Cleburne, Texas, recovering from a heart attack he suffered late last month while attending a funeral in Baton Rouge, La.
Johnson, who has a history of heart trouble, was airlifted to the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, where he was assessed and stabilized. According to rodeo announcer Charlie Throckmorton, who spoke to Johnson Aug. 9, surgery remains an option.
Johnson competed in the NFR three times as a bareback rider (1959, 1962-63) and twice as a bull rider (1961-62).

It's the most dominant stretch for any bareback horse since Bernis Johnson's Sippin' Velvet, a five-time champion and member of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, who also won four titles in five years (1983-84 and 1986-87).
