Reading this book, I was reminded of the life lessons I have learned growing up around horses and how much in common there is with the high-ends and people such as myself. Growing up, handling equine was just common knowledge for everyone, and because of that I’ve learned that there needs to be a bond and some trust between the rider and horse.
The historical cowboy strike of 1883 was led by Tom Harris, a ranch hand at the LS ranch in Tascosa, Texas. Harris was tired of being controlled by ranches that were owned by corporations only interested in monetary wealth, specifically five major ranches: the LIT, the LX, the LS, the LE, and the T Anchor. Additionally, the ranch owners were establishing new rules that did not allow cowboys to receive calves as part of their pay, brand mavericks, or run small herds on their employers’ land. Many cowboys felt cheated by these new laws and believed that they solely benefitted ranch owners (Zeigler).
During his confrontation with buffalo bull, he was not awarded another cow which caused coyote to go back home in shame and never receive the buffalo that he always wanted. The lesson is taught that disobeying rules and regulations can have a negative impact even when you think it won 't.

This shows that life in that time period was hard: hard work, no law enforcement, and shootings. Basically whoever had the most money in the settlement could do as they pleased. Money meant power and whoever had the money had the power. That led to problems when poor farmers were threatened by wealthy cattle drivers which were shown in the movie. Ryker, the wealthy cattle driver, abused his status and money to intimidate and wreak havoc upon the homesteaders until they would eventually pack up and leave.
As the participants started to arrive the diversity was clear. There ages ranged from toddler to old- timers. Their levels of experience fluctuated between little ones that needed be led to seasoned competitors, including past rodeo queens and bronc riders.

Also, when the narrator says, “Though his dignity was sorely hurt by thus being made a draught animal, he was too wise to rebel”, he means that he is not in “sun-kissed Santa Clara Valley” to make people do things anymore and he is not alpha anymore.

The ‘new animal drug’ provisions of the FFDCA focuses on whether the new animal drug is safe for the animal and if it is effective. If the drug is for a food-producing animal it also focuses on whether the resulting food is safe to eat. Is safe for the animals? Genetic engineering of animals is strictly controlled by animal cruelty legislations in many countries and is always carefully scrutinised by teams of experts before being approved for wider use.

“In fact, if a flank strap is drawn so tight as to be uncomfortable, the horses and bulls will likely cease to buck or not perform to the best of their ability. The best rodeo livestock are those with a natural inclination to buck for the purpose of unseating a rider. (as cited in PRCA, 2015)” Bucking horses are not wild, but they aren’t saddle-broken either. PRCA stock contractors have spent lots of time and money researching, breeding and purchasing top bucking animals. They know better than anyone that only a small percentage of animals actually have the desire to buck.

At six years of age, I broke and trained my first horse. I have trained two world champion Racking Horses and several state champions. Their smooth ride will spoil even dedicated western cowboys.
Rodeo has helped me grow up. Since third grade I went from going to rodeos with my family to chasing the white lines on my own. I have had numerous opportunities presented to me from rodeo such as being on tv for qualifying for Worlds, traveling all the way to New Mexico and Wyoming to compete, and being rodeo queen for Southern Indiana Junior Rodeo Association. My parents took care of my horses for me. They cleaned stalls, fed them day and night, and packed the trailer for each rodeo.
She states that she believes a family cow should be dehorned. At a young age is the best time to do this. Castration of a bull, as well, should be done at a young age. This is important to Jackie because she says the bull can become rambunctious to the point of being dangerous towards the family.
