“What he loved in horses was what he loved in man, the blood and the heat of the blood that ran them.” - Cormac McCarthy
A man on a horse—that’s where the myth begins. The myth evokes a powerful masculinity defined by self-reliance and solitude. But for the men, women, and children living on ranches and working cattle, it’s more than a myth—it’s a way of life defined by community and bolstered by hard work. It’s also a way of life that is vanishing all over the West.
