Ranch Hands


This photo was taken in 1903 on the JA Ranch in Texas. It shows cowboys breaking camp. I love these old cowboy pictures. Most ranch work today is done from pickups and 4-wheelers. I think horses are more for recreation than for real work these days.

  2. Just came across your blog. Love the photos. We live in North Central Texas. My dad is a 75 year old life long rancher. He still rides in him steers daily on his horse. A lot of the large ranchers around here still use horses too. Thanks again for the old photos.
