No hour of life spent in the saddle is wasted.

A man on a horse is spiritually as well as physically bigger
than a man on foot. -John Steinbeck
Round Up
Head 'em up, Move 'em out.
Riding through water
Real cowboys don't take baths, they just dust off.
Roping the cattle
Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway!
-John Wayne
Larry pensive
A cowboy is a man with guts and a horse.
Larry's head
Few cowboys ever owned much. The primary reward of being a cowboy was the pleasure of living a cowboy's life.
Driving cattle across the river
I took to the life of a cowboy like a horse takes to oats.
Larry in a poncho
In riding a horse, we borrow freedom.
When they lay me down to rest, put my spurs and rope upon my chest. Get my friends to carry me, and then go turn my horses free.
