Found in the Herd

A few years ago, Western artist Tim Cox invited me to join him on a trip to the ID Ranch. The Wyoming outfit was branding its calves, and Tim was there to photograph reference material for his paintings. I wrote an article about the ranch that appeared in the May 2012 issue. Tim also helped the crew gather the herd and brand the calves. A lifelong cowboy, he was handy with a rope. I like this photo because it shows his horse's cow sense, and it also illustrates Tim's stockmanship. Many ropers scatter a herd when riding through it, but cows in this photo are relaxed and undisturbed.
