We Won a 2016 Equus Film Festival Winnie!

Last week, Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch was honored to attend the Equus Film Festival in New York City. The festival’s mission is to “be the home to the horse storytellers of the world,” and it was great to be a part of that mission. Jeremy Enlow signed books for the festival’s pop up gallery and spoke at a panel with other authors.

Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch won the 2016 Equus Film Festival Winnie in the Equine Photography Collection category.

Never Before Seen Photographs of Waggoner Ranch Vol. 3

Good morning!

To celebrate Equus International Film Festival this week, we’re sharing 10 more previously unpublished photographs from Jeremy’s archives. If you enjoy seeing new photos of the ranch, follow us on Facebook and Twitter where we share new images every week. The photographs in Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch and Jeremy’s archives show a side of cowboy life that’s not often seen, as the reviewer below says:

“Being a life long Texan (and you’ll understand this if you’re one too), I have seen more than my fair share of “The Cowboy Life” portrayed in the worst way by some slick New York or Los Angeles artist/producer/photographer/journalist… In my travels, it never fails, that I am presented with some misconceived and ill informed lore of how Texas, Cowboys, and country life if portrayed elsewhere. So when I heard about this book – I was naturally skeptical, and fully expected some mockery and over zealous portrayal of country bumpkins, akin to another horrible Woody Harrelson and Kiefer Sutherland performance.. I was horribly, horribly WRONG.”  -Amazon book review, (May 7, 2016)

We love this review of the book and are honored to show Texas cowboys in a way that honors them as the living legends they are.

Saddle Up and Get It Done

Get ready for round 3 of never before published photos from Jeremy Enlow’s archives. (Don’t miss round 1 and round 2 in our series of photos from the archives) 

On the Waggoner Ranch, everyone saddles up and lends a hand during branding season. During Jeremy’s time on the ranch from April – June 2015, he captured the cowboys’ work during this busy season. Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch takes a look at the lives of working cowboys in the dirt and grit of day to day life.

Minimizing stress to the calves is always a top priority to the cowboys. Branding and castration is done right in the pasture, eliminating the need to pen up the calves. On the largest ranch under one fence in the U.S., a single pasture is often 6,000-10,000 acres, so the morning ride to gather calves can take a while.

Good Morning, Waggoner

Mornings on the Waggoner Ranch near Vernon, Texas glow with the lights of trucks, trailers, and the moon as the cowboys get ready to drive out into the pasture. On the largest ranch under one fence in the United States, a single pasture is often 6,500-10,000 acres.

At Jimbo Glover’s signal, the cowboys leave their early breakfast to head out to work . There’s no pecking order as the cowboys line up across the horse pen. “It’s like church, sitting in the same pew every Sunday,” explains cowboy John Paul Welch. “Everybody just stands in the same place.” At Jimbo’s signal, cowboys call out the name of a horse on their string they want to ride that day.

During his time on the ranch, Jeremy Enlow photographed the early morning hours many times. From the hazy blue of a foggy morning to the crisp white moon when the cowboys got to work before the sun, you can see all manners of Texas skies in Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch. 

“There’s such a great quality of light and consistency of mood throughout the whole thing. Jeremy really captured that and carried it through. Photos are a like a paragraph. One leads to the next. I look for consistency and he did it. The images are graphic and informative. If you don’t have great light you better nail the moments. He did. He listened and he nailed it and I’m really proud of him.” -John Davidson (Director of Photography Dallas Mornings News 1984-2002)

This Land is Our Land

Over the course of five months, Jeremy Enlow captured more than 14,000 images of the historic Waggoner Ranch. While we have a special place in our hearts for the images of the cowboys, these pictures of the land on the Waggoner are pretty spectacular.

 

With 510,527 acres behind its fence, the Waggoner Ranch has plenty of remarkable vistas and landscapes. The gallery below shows some of this Texas land.


There’s something special about the light and horizon on the Waggoner. With the ranch stretching as far as the eye can see, it seems as though the Waggoner goes on forever… And that is exactly what most people hope for – an endless, lasting fence line that holds history in its embrace.
Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch is now in its third printing, made right here in Texas. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book goes to The Waggoner Ranch Cowboys Fund. Visiting the State Fair of Texas? You can get your copy of the book at the GO TEXAN store.

Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch makes a great corporate giftWhat People Are Saying About the Book

“Most readers expect an oversized coffee table book to awe them with color photos, but only a few books can capture the heart of a subject in both color and text. This is one of the few.”
-Texas Tech University magazine book review (March 2016)

“Being a life long Texan (and you’ll understand this if you’re one too), I have seen more than my fair share of “The Cowboy Life” portrayed in the worst way by some slick New York or Los Angeles artist/producer/photographer/journalist… In my travels, it never fails, that I am presented with some misconceived and ill informed lore of how Texas, Cowboys, and country life if portrayed elsewhere. So when I heard about this book – I was naturally skeptical, and fully expected some mockery and over zealous portrayal of country bumpkins, akin to another horrible Woody Harrelson and Kiefer Sutherland performance.. I was horribly, horribly WRONG.”
-Amazon book review, (May 7, 2016)

What is a photo worth? Can a price be placed on an image, or does it remain priceless? What if a photo captures a piece of living history and preserves it for years so that multiple generations will know it existed? That is the sentiment behind the book, Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch. The glossy, bound book is comprised of 180 images displaying true Texas history and documenting a way of life.”
-North Texas Farm & Ranch magazine, (April 2016)

About Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch 

Waggoner Ranch cowboy Josh Stacey's son helps out on the ranch

In 2015, Fort Worth-based advertising photographer Jeremy Enlow visited the Waggoner Ranch over a period of five months. In the process, he captured more than 14,000 images of the largest ranch under one fence in the U.S. At the end of 2015, he released his inaugural book, Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch, documenting the lives of 26 working cowboys from the cow camp division of the ranch. The first run of books sold out in just 10 days. Now in its final printing, Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch makes a great gift, capturing the spirit of Texas.

Committed to maximum quality and supporting his state, Jeremy printed the book right here in North Texas. It’s 100% made in Texas, by Texans, about Texans. Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch is the gift your clients and employees will proudly display on their coffee tables for years to come.
