    TOMBSTONE – Saddle up and hang onto your hats! It’s rodeo time! While Arizona celebrates Tucson Rodeo festivities, third-graders from Huachuca City School are learning all about riding, roping and ranching, as well as a little rodeoing on the side. On Wednesday, about 50 young buckaroos traveled to Tombstone High School for a crash course on cowboys and ranching. The Future Farmers of America students organized the event and worked with the young cowboys and cowgirls as they dabbled in bull riding and roping and learned how to saddle a horse. They met goats and other petting zoo animals and...
  • The 100 Best Historical Photos of the American Cowboy

    08/02/2016 6:53:07 AM PDT · by V K Lee · 28 replies ^ | December 8, 2015 | Meghan Saar
    Before the Mexican-American War concluded in 1848, American traders who traveled to the Western frontier encountered Spanish vaqueros of northern Mexico. The arrival of railroads and an increased demand for beef during the Civil War drove the need for the cowboy. The earliest known photographs of these iconic Americans are tintypes, taken as early as the 1870s, most likely captured during a trail drive or at an end-of-trail town. The Texas Live Stock Journal wrote glowingly of the cowboy on October 21, 1882: A man wanting in courage would be as much out of place in a cow-camp, as a...

    Police say a rancher jumped on his horse and lassoed a man who was trying to steal a bicycle in the parking lot of an Oregon Walmart. The Medford Mail Tribune reports 28-year-old Robert Borba was at the Eagle Point store getting dog food Friday when he heard a woman screaming that someone was trying to steal her bike. The rancher says he quickly got his horse out of its trailer, grabbed a rope, rode over and lassoed the man and bicycle.
  • Rancher on horseback lassoes would-be bike bandit in Walmart parking lot

    An attempted bicycle theft in a Walmart parking lot was foiled by a cattle rancher on horseback, who chased the thief down and lassoed him until the local police in southern Oregon could arrive. David Stepp said that he had been sitting in his car nearby when he saw the cowboy trotting across the parking lot on his horse after the thief, who was trying to escape on the stolen bicycle. When the thief dismounted and tried to flee on foot, Stepp watched as the cowboy lassoed him by the ankle. The thief then grabbed a tree and held on...

    Texas Governor Rick Perry's decision to stop wearing cowboy boots because of his back pain is just a "feeble excuse," according to the state's Republican Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson. "Tell Rick that boots can be purchased with normal heels," Patterson wrote to a columnist at the Austin American-Statesman, as highlighted by Political Wire. "I lament the fact that our governor could now pass for a West Coast metrosexual and has embarrassed us all with his sartorial change of direction." These goddamn metrosexuals, with their ignorance about "heels" and humiliating "sartorial" decisions. Where have all the cowboys gone?

    For the Democratic Party, history began and ended with the election of George W. Bush. Nothing had happened before him. Every world crisis began with him and would only come to an end when the Democratic Party finally squeezed one of its own into the White House. If there was a problem, Bush had caused it. If another country hated America, it was Bushs fault. Bush alienated Europe, Russia, Asia, the Middle East and even parts of Antarctica. It was all his fault, the media, academia and angry Trotskyite grandmothers marching for peace and tyranny in San Francisco agreed. Books...

    With his missteps on Syria, Obama has alienated just about everyone -- friends and frenemies alike.It's not easy to get yourself into the kind of predicament that the president of the United States finds himself in today. To one substantial group of Americans, he is too hawkish, recklessly pushing America into another Middle East war. To another group, he is too dovish, committing to such limitations on intervention that any military action to come will almost certainly be nothing more than an empty gesture, advancing no vital U.S. interest. To some, he is acting too rashly, not allowing enough time...

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration said Wednesday it would take action against the Syrian government even without the backing of allies or the United Nations because diplomatic paralysis must not prevent a response to the alleged chemical weapons attack outside the Syrian capital last week. New requests for the United Nations to authorize military action in Syria may have complicated the Obama administration's plan to take retaliatory action on the purported poison gas attack east of Damascus that U.S. officials claim was carried out by President Bashar Assad's forces. But a State Department spokeswoman said possible U.N. rejection of...

    Breath-taking photographs have captured America's last cowboys, as the age-old profession, or art-form, all but dies out. A national icon, and an integral part of the country's story, the cowboy is a romantic, rugged metaphor for America's frontier past -- and one that has captivated Hollywood for decades. For years, photographer Adam Jahiel has been taking pictures of the cowboys of Nevada's Great Basin, perhaps one of the most inhospitable regions of the already harsh West.

    A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?" Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?" The yuppie parks...

    There was a time when the saying a man without a horse was widely understood. Its meaning may not be as quickly grasped as it once was. However, the phrase certainly is applicable even in this age where many folks do not or have never owned a horse. A man without a horse is one who is incomplete. He is lacking. Perhaps, a similar situation today would be a man without a car, a job, or his spouse. Figuratively a mans horse is that which gives him the desire to go forward and conquer in life and when it is...
