    American cowboy, circa 1888 - A large number of horses were needed for a roundup. Each cowboy would require 3 to 4 fresh horses in course of day's work. Horses themselves were also rounded up. It was common practice in west for young foals to be born of tame mares, but allowed to grow up "wild" in a semi-feral state on open range. There were also "wild" herds, known as Mustangs. Both types were rounded up, & mature animals tamed, a process called "bronco-busting".

    The cowboy, the quintessential symbol of the American frontier, circa 1888. A few decades back I was an avide reader of western novels. Memory fails me, so I am unable to list titles and/or authors without overlooking many great ones. Any truly outstanding western from 1/2 century or further back - I most likely read it. I tip my Stetson to them all.

So Mamma's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys, let them be doctors and lawyers and such. They never come home and they're always alone, even with one that they love.
