Happy Independence Day!

“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)

Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch is made in Texas by Texans

This Independence Day, we’re celebrating the 26 cowboys on the Waggoner Ranch. These men are American icons, carrying on a way of life that is older than Texas. We’re honored to preserve this piece of American history and celebrate the integrity and independence they represent.

The Waggoner Ranch was founded in 1849 by Dan Waggoner. He and his son, W.T. Waggoner, steadily grew the ranch. Now, it is the largest ranch under one fence in the United States. With its long history and legendary stories (Theodore Roosevelt was a regular guest on the ranch!), it is truly an American treasure.

“The land on the Waggoner is special, but it’s the cowboys who make it a special place.”Jeremy Enlow

Happy 4th of July from Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch


Jeremy Enlow captured this red, white, and blue photograph of the Waggoner Ranch in April, 2015. The 26 cowboys who work the Cow Camp division of the ranch eat breakfast around 5 a.m. (in the cook shack before the sale of the ranch. Under the new owners, however, the cook shack is now closed). Once breakfast is over, they head off to work before the sun has risen over the horizon.

The American Legends of the Waggoner Ranch

Cowboys on the historic Waggoner Ranch, which is the largest ranch under one fence in the United States, work hard five and a half days a week. They are strong, quiet men who carry out their work in the same way they have for generations, save for the addition of a few trucks.

“The cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch are living legends, men who embody the attributes of the lean and dusty riders who braved the wild a century ago to make room for a herd. They ride the trails of their forebearers, living a life and practicing skills that have almost disappeared. They ride for the prestigious reversed triple D brand of the largest ranch within one fence in the United States.

It is important to record their lives before they shut the gate behind them the last time. This book is a tribute to those cowboys and a way of life is just a whisper on the wind.” -Jan Batts in Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch
