Wyoming's Rhonda Sedgwick Stearns, Cowgirl Hall of Fame honoree, poet, writer, day worker, and rodeo historian shares vintage family photos and descriptions:

My grandfather Anthony Wilkinson Sedgwick raised Shetlands over the years. His wife, Lena Sedgwick, stepped on a rusty nail and died of blood poisoning when daddy was three, about the age he's shown here on one of the Shetland foals, with his eldest sister Ida.

 

Dad, Francis Sedgwick, just about grew up on a horse.

 

Dad on Grey Girl.

 

Dad had a bunch of mares and bought a registered Thoroughbred stallion from Eph Hogg who came to Wyoming from Kentucky. His head and neck are shown in this photo, they called him "Little Eph"; Dad's at far right.

 

My Mom, Violet Sedgwick, with a horse in the round corral at one of the ranches they owned when I was born, on the Cheyenne River.

 

 

Dad's mares were range horse/Shetland crossbreds and when he infused the Thoroughbred blood from Little Eph they got a superbly quick, athletic, small horse. Mom's son, my brother, said "Tryin' to stay on one of those horses was just like tryin' to ride an antelope!"

 

Mom in a racing saddle on Little Eph. She said dad had to hold him for her to get on and even then she had to catch the saddle on the fly.

 

Mom and Dad ran coyotes with hounds, it was great sport and there was a bounty on the sheep killers. An x marks the dead coyote at Mom's feet; one is slung behind the saddle on Dad's paint horse.



 

 

These photos also appear in Western Memories.

Nebraska rancher, cowboy, and writer Deanna Nelson-Licking shares some recent photos. She introduces them:

This three-year-old gelding was brought to my husband to train. This horse was not halter broke and on his first day of training, my husband ended up roping him.

This gelding has a really good mind, is a quick learner and didn't need to be roped twice.

The last picture is the result of thirty days' riding.

Top songwriter and musician Wylie Gustafson of Wylie & the Wild West posted some great photos on his Facebook page in late September, and we asked if he'd share the Montana views for Picture the West.

He commented on the photos:

Coming down from the summer leases with our second bunch yesterday. Fog in the morning, sun breaking through. God's handiwork everywhere.
