The Best Cowboys

Today, cowboys and Indians are on the same side.
One day a stranger came up to the ranch house looking for work. "Do you have any references?" asked the boss.
"Well, I used to cowboy with Jim Wygott. He worked for you one time, he said."
The boss nodded. "Okay,,"
"Wait a minute," the foreman butted in.
"He wasn't?" the boss asked.
"No." The foreman swept his hat off towards the desert. "You remember that time we had a hellacious rain storm when we were bringing the cattle in off the BLM?"
The boss nodded. The foreman nodded too as he proved his statement. "Jim Wygott got under a tree and hid there until the storm was over."
The stranger ducked his head in shame. "I wondered why I never liked the man myself. Real cowboys don't hide from the weather threatening their herd."

The FIVE-DAY Guymon's Pioneer Day Rodeo that comes every year is always a gala event: There are probably more former National Finals Rodeo qualifiers entered up in this rodeo than any other PRCA rodeo. "Generally we have at least 14 of the top 15 in the current world standings in most timed events."
Prize money will most likely equal right near $300,000.00

The American West, where you can round-up all the information you'll ever need about Cowboys.
Cowboys were the working class of the cattle industry. For a dollar a day and "found" (board and room, where it existed), a young man worked long hours--occasionally risking life and limb--to tend the cattle of another. The job was seasonal, but if he proved his worth and won a place in the outfit, he lived a way of life that in the popular imagination has become synonymous with freedom and rugged individualism.
I remember when the cowboys walked up to my grandmotherís house from the corrals at high noon during branding season, their spurs jingling to the rhythms of their strides, and they stopped by the cistern at the corner of her porch to pour water from a galvanized metal bucket into a blue tin wash basin. They scrubbed dirt and ashes and blood from their faces and hands and dried on a common towel.
