A friend of mine owns a large ranch about 20 miles away that was first founded in the 1880s. The Santa Fe Trail runs across part of it and there is a grave of someone who died on that wagon train. No one knows the name of who'd buried there.
I love going out there to watch the cowboys work. It's fascinating to me. Last month was the roundup and branding. Most of these pictures are from that.

To the right is a close up of the saddle and rope. See how worn the leather is? Not telling how hundreds of miles it's been on a horse's back with a cowboy in the saddle.
I think you get the picture. This is everyday life in this part of the country. I only have to go out to this ranch or another nearby for inspiration if I need it.
