    Default COWBOY'S - Lets hear from you + Pictures

    I'm going to start this off with a picture or 2. Keep in mind that I am not a cowboy, never been 1 and didn't ever want to be 1. I just worked with cowboys and did what they do. Have quite a few fun stories to tell, but some of you get the ball rolling.

    First 2 pictures are stories about my dad. Next is him, my sister & I. I don't remember the mule in the picture. But some where in the family pictures is me at 1 or 2 years old on "Susie-Q" the mule I grew up with and rode well into the 1960's.

    Good story, stick to it if you like it.
    In the south & east most cattle raising folks are called farmers.

    Most other places the ranch owner was a Cattle Man. The people that worked for him were and are cowboys.

    You would think any good Texan would have a picture or 2.

    Don't have digital pictures. But if anyone likes History and is in the Lordsburg N.Mex area there is a Museum down town Lordsburg well worth visiting. Town of Shakesphere also where so much early history took place.just a mile south of town .
    Knew a Rancher. Joe Roush lived 15 miles south of Lordsburg. early Deputy sheriff of Shakesphere was able to tell a lot of stories about the early history.
    He also worked at the WW11 German POW camp East of Lordsburg. very few know of this camp.

    Jim you have started a interesting thread. Ranchers cattlemen cowboys cow raisers are like a long cool drink of water refreshing.

    Mule Racing Fun,
    "Susi-Q" was a very high strung mule. ON her you could ride out before day light and return just before dark and she would run the last 3/4 mile or so on the way home. She did have a little quirk, every year or 2 dad would try putting a dude on her. It was rare that she would get 400 yards out before Unloading the dude.

    "Judy mule" was real gentle and any one could ride her. She did have a couple of quirk's. 1 If she got close to a tree she would try to brush you off. Will get to the other 1.

    My buddy & I had taken a horse over the mountain & were to bring back a mule. Bout a 15 mile ride. The rancher was not home and the old cowboy there would not let us have the mule. We were on our way back to a line shack to spend the night.
    On the way we had a mule race, he on "Susi-Q" and me on Judy mule. He was in the lead as we came to a bend in the trail where it crossed the creek. Susi-q made the turn. But quirk #2 of Judy Mule was once she got her head, she would not turn or stop until she ran into something that stopped her.

    My buddy says "You just don't know how to ride a mule. lets trade." He had a brand new Powder Blue Stetson hat. Fairly soon was another place to race. Off we go, time to cross the creek. He has Judy mule's head almost in the stirrup and she isn't turning. Right through a low Pine tree and he had big green stripes down 1 side of that hat.

    That was about 1954, I went out to his ranch in 1973. He still had the hat and was still bitching about it.
