Bill Bolte of Central City, Nebraska sent photos taken at the September 25, 2012 Buffalo Roundup in Custer State Park in South Dakota.

He comments, "This is the final dash before the buffalo get to the corrals to be sorted, vaccinated, the young weaned etc. Several horses and pickups are used to round them up. This event is the climax of the Custer Stampede art show held two days prior."


 


 

 

 

Bill Bolte has contributed photos for gathering reports (the most recent here) and a previous Picture the West:

  Nebraska State Hand Corn Husking Contest

 

We asked Bill to tell us a bit about himself and he wrote:

I have worked for a public power district for the last 43 years. Horses have always been a part of my life. I am president of the Merrick County Historical Museum and love history, especially the middle 1800s, the Old West, the Native Americans, especially the Pawnee since we live in the middle of where they used to roam. We do cemetery tours and history programs with the museum. Cemeteries and tombstone symbolisms attract me when traveling.
 
I am married to April and we love going to cowboy poetry gatherings.

Lopin' Ropin' and Hopin' is a forthcoming film from the non-profit Main Street Media. The film is described at its web site here as "...a feature-length documentary film of four iconic western characters: Gary McMahan, a renowned cowboy singer, poet, and national champion yodeler; Brice Chapman, one of America’s most talented trick ropers and horse trainers; Yvonne Hollenbeck, a third-generation ranch wife and award winning poet and quilt maker; and Jeff Nourse, a rancher, singer songwriter and iron sculptor."

Director Doug Morrione shares some stills from the film.

South Dakota cowboy and writer Deanna Nelson responded to the call for winter photos. She comments on each:

Here is a photo I took several years ago when the Cody, Wyoming, bucking horses wintered next to us north of Recluse, Wyoming. I was amazed just how beautiful the horses in the Cody bucking string were up close. They often came to lean over the fence, longing for a warm barn and hay, during the months they spent beside us.

 

This picture I took the first winter I had a job feeding someone else’s cows. They were slow in coming out of the hills for their morning cake:

 

Nitro really enjoyed his first big snow last winter:

 

A frosty morning while going to check water tanks:

 

Cows coming over the ridge for feed. The morning was bitterly cold and they were pretty slow coming out of the draws:

 

A beautiful sunset in late November. I had to jump out of the tractor and take pictures of the heifers with such a brilliant sky behind them:

 

Deanna Nelson has shared photos previously for Picture the West:

  images from the South Dakota ranch where she works

 

We asked Deanna to tell us something about herself:

Cowboy and writer, transplant from Southern Idaho, via Wyoming, and currently hanging my hat in South Dakota.

I cowboy for a living on a family cow-calf outfit near Murdo, South Dakota. We also pasture yearlings and put up all our own hay during the summer. In my spare time I write and am finishing my first novel. Also, I enjoy quilting and sewing.

Evelyn Roper lives in Gunnison, Colorado, which she calls "the forgotten slope of the Rockies." She told us, "I am a musician by trade, cutting my teeth in Western and cowboy. The lifestyle, the travel, the views brought me to bring my camera with me and try to preserve the West that we all love, not just in audio but visually as well."

Find her Cowgirl Bliss Photography here on Facebook, and visit her Opal Moon Band page here on Facebook and here on ReverbNation.

We put a call out for winter photographs and Alberta rancher and photographer Linda Pierson responded with this image, which she titles "Brrr!"

She told us, "I took it a few days before we weaned after a snowstorm hit us."
