Serving Up Some Cowboy Wisdom

Cowboying on the largest ranch under one fence is no easy task. Many of the cowboys featured in the book have been at it for decades, working the Waggoner Ranch for 10 hours a day, five or more days a week. Along the way, they’ve learned cowboy skills and a heck of a lot of wisdom. We can all learn from the way Waggoner Ranch cowboys live their lives.

“They are cowboys. They live by another ethic that reveals itself in their work and how they relate to each other. They value people over things. They have a sense of personal responsibility. They know who they are, and they aren’t going to be less than that for anybody.” –from the book

We’ve collected some of our favorite bits of cowboy wisdom and quotes from the book below. Want more? Be sure to follow us on Pinterest where we share Western wisdom, Texas cowboys, and ranch life photographs.

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To celebrate Equus International Film Festival this week, we’re sharing 10 more previously unpublished photographs from Jeremy’s archives.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.
