Randy Barnett has been a cowboy on the Waggoner Ranch for a good part of the last decade.
“I grew up cowboying,” Randy said.
“My dad’s a cowboy. I’ve been here nine years. They really take good care of us.”
The cowboys don’t take many breaks. When they do, it usually involves coffee or cigarettes with little words spoken.
Waggoner cowboys are provided with houses, insurance, a retirement plan, utilities, and beef, in addition to drawing a paycheck.
