‘Yellowstone’s Forrie J. Smith Shares Epic Throwback Photo From His Rodeo Cowboy Days

by Tia Bailey

Yellowstone actor Forrie J. Smith hasn’t always been on TV. He recently shared a throwback pic from his rodeo days.

Smith, who portrays Lloyd Pierce in the show, posted a photo on his Instagram page of him riding a horse. The mid-air shot was awesome.

“My days of rodeo life…yeehaw ladies and gentlemen#! Fun Fact:The rider loses points if his toes are not turned out with his spurs in contact with the horse!”

Smith is also a stuntman, so it makes sense that he’d be talented in something like this. Fans were amazed, and took to the comments to share their awe.

One fan commented: “Saw this shot on FB yesterday….its awesome.” Another wrote: “My new hero.. im 55 want to be a cowboy when i grow up. By 67.”

The actor still frequently rides horses, and posts about it on Instagram. Just last month he shared a few more action shots, writing: “More action and fun at the Big Timber Weekly Pro Rodeos on Wed. nights 7pm! Aug. 24, 31st and Sept. 7th. Cheers!”

The cowboy/actor is definitely on the right TV show with his skills.

He captioned the post: “Cruisin the highways on #montana @forriejsmithcowboy look out.”

Fans loved the photo. One fan commented: “Forrie is a real life cowboy. But they both have bada** in their blood . Love you both . From Kentucky.” Another said: “How did I miss this? Awesome photo of two unforgettable men! Love your characters and your obvious friendship! Much respect from East Texas!”
