Why did we name our Old West blog “Cowboy to Cowboy”? At onetime everyone who’s intrigued with the Old West has wanted to be a cowboy… even the ladies. Unfortunately, for most of us the closest we’ve been able to come to being a real cowboy is to own horses, go on horse pack trips and do a little roping.
We regularly have people come up to us… mostly men… and say they were born 125 years to late. They should have lived in the Old West. Incidentally, I would like to go back to the late 1800’s just for a couple of days. I love my hot showers and flush toilets to much.
I truly believe the Old West is a time and place of the heart. And in the spirit of that belief whether you’re a working cowboy in Wyoming or a Los Angeles banker living in a high‑rise apartment, if you love the Old West and have the spirit of the cowboy, you’re a cowboy. And so, when you visit us, we’ll be communicating “Cowboy to Cowboy.”
