Did You Know?
On western ranches today, the working cowboy is usually an adult.  Responsibility for herding cattle or other livestock is no longer considered a job suitable for children or early adolescents.  However, both boys and girls growing up in a ranch environment often learn to ride horses and perform basic ranch skills as soon as they are physically able, usually under adult supervision.  Such youths, by their late teens, are often given responsibilities for "cowboy" work on the ranch, and ably perform work that requires a level of maturity and level headedness that is not generally expected of their urban peers.
