Being a cowboy is so much more than just riding a horse and following the cows. It may appear that it is all that they do but once you get to know them and watch what they do you realize that there is so much more to it. Most of it is instinct. Its like a sixth sense that they gain over time and through experience. They are born with a certain ability to connect with the animals. They learn to be fearless or need be to face their fears. There are people that say that ranchers or cowboys are the uneducated ones that couldn't make it in the world. Maybe they couldn't make it sitting behind a desk all day but that is because God gave them gifts that we can afford for them to waste. You should come and try to do what they do. What they do is an art. There is no other way to explain it.
