A cowboy’s best friend was often his horse….They slept under the stars and worked 20 hrs a day. They were real American heroes.


The lifestyle of a cowboy on the great plains was a lonely one. This isolation is shown through the sad lyrics in cowboy songs and woeful words in cowboy poetry. Near the turn of the century the need for skilled, reliable cowboys was waining and something needed to be done to prevent the exctinction of the cowboy lifestyle.

 Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.       -Cowboy
