Fortunately, the role of African American cowboys in the Old West has come to be recognized and appreciated. This handsome picture features a proud cowboy and an expertly kitted horse. The details are immaculate, and the horse looks confident and well cared for. Note that the cowboy is not holding the horse's reins. That shows an amazing level of trust and cooperation between them. Everything about this picture is so beautiful that I cried the first time I saw it.
