Maddy and I went out to drive cattle and we had a few guests with us, and this boy who was our age was decked out in the fanciest clothing- a blue scarf, new cowboy hat, a new rope, and a slick black ariat jacket. His parents had just bought him a new horse and saddle- and I fully recall Maddy and I looking down at our work t shirts and dirty jeans, hugging our ranch horses, and laughing.

Either he was shy around us, or just plain rude, because he though we didn’t know shit about cattle- but damn we showed him how to round up a full 100 head on our own.
