IL Buckaroo Ricky Morris Wrangling Horses
IL Buckaroo Ricky Morris Wrangling Horses - Nevada, 1979.
Every morning and late afternoon, each buckaroo on the IL cow crew picked one of the five or six horses in their group to ride. Ricky Morris was one of the buckaroos at the IL Ranch, in Nevada. The working cowboy has never made much money but he has had a certain independence. The skills, like wrangling, don’t come with the hat. They have to be acquired and learned.
I took this shot in early morning light. The dust acts as kind of a scrim over the picture. But the key to the image is the rope. The line of that rope cutting the diagonal at the back of Ricky’s hand, then the sharp vertical descending to the coil of ropes, which is just off-center of the picture ….that’s the handle for the photograph. Right there.
