Josh Noble was having what he calls family difficulties.
"I wasn't getting along with my adoptive mother," he says.
Boys Ranch officials say he ran away from the situation and lived in the wilderness for a month.
Josh tells us a friend told him about Boys Ranch.
He started calling the ranch home about a year ago.
He was 16.
Josh says, "one kid has a lot more opportunities here, like sports. I mean, you get a lot of benefits from this place."
Josh tells us he likes football, wrestling, and baseball.
But bullfighting, he says, nothing compares to it.
When you're bullfighting, Josh says you always have in your mind that you're putting your life out there for somebody else.
"When the bull comes out, bull rider on top, you're all nervous, worried about getting bumped or trucked or horned. When you see the rider and you're a true brother, or somebody doing your job, you won' t think about getting bumped. You'll just thinking about getting that bull away from everybody so nobody gets hurt," he says.
We asked Josh what his plans were after graduating from Boys Ranch.
He says, "I want to continue bullfighting, I'll weld on the side, but bullfighting just gets to me more than anything though."
Josh will be competing in the rodeo this year.
He's doing saddle bronc riding, bullfighting, and roping.
Josh says, "I started when I was 7. I had a little rope. I was roping chairs and peoples feet."
He says the first time he learned how to do the "butterfly," he was sold.
Josh says he's excited for the rodeo this year, but has some advice for those thinking about pursuing bullfighting.
"Don't do it if you don't love it."
Josh tells us he was behind in school, but thanks to the ranch, he's all caught up.
