One Man Heifer - continuous line drawing - sort of

Blue ink on index card stock - $25 - includes shipping
image area 6 X 8 - would fit an 8 X 10 frame with 1" mat
I went to Dr. Bill's yearly calf working this morning and got some more great cowboy images. This is one of many. Most of the calves were 4 months old and pretty stout critters. This heifer was one of the smaller ones. 80% of the rest took 2 or more men to wrestle to the ground.
My favorite cowboy, young Coy Clower was on a new mount today.  I first met this young man 6 or more years ago when he was mounted on a little palomino pony. His feet were nearly dragging the ground on that pony at the last calf working I saw him at. I knew his daddy, Barry wouldn't put him on just any old horse either, but I had a feeling that if the right animal came along, I'd see Coy roping on something new. You can be sure that Coy and his paint will find their way into a painting or two. The whole Clower family makes their living working cattle - including Coy's big sister Courtney and her husband. Not only do I admire them for their work ethic, but I also am humbled by their faith in God. They are living proof that when you are doing what you love, doing it honestly, and thanking God for the ability to do it, all things are possible.
James 2:6
But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court?
