John Thornton also shows great affection and cares for Buck much more than any other master of Buck have given. Even though Buck has a great urge to return back to the wild where he feels where he truly belongs, but his love for John Thornton is so great that he will never leave him forever.

The next instant he was grappling with Buck on the extreme edge.” (London 134).

It was a friendship that made it worthwhile when going into battle. It was a warrior's brethren that spurred his fight while in battle. It is a well-known law that in Anglo-Saxon culture and society if warriors didn’t return with their comrades they were publicly shamed and humiliated. It was your friends that told of your glorious feats when you passed, that kept you alive even when you weren’t. It is well known that Beowulf valued all of his friendships dearly even at the end of his

“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.

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.
A complete shift to this nomadism would have resulted to a need for many horses among each individual family, around six. One would be used for hunting, two for specifically riding, and three for carrying the lodge poles, tipi covers, and other necessities among the tribe. This was difficult for many families to obtain this many horses due to living in poorer conditions but also to a limited number of horses available.2 Even with a limited number of horses, however, the aid that these animals provided for each tribe allowed them to continue striving and develop their ways of living in order to create a more sufficient and advanced way of
