This painting depicts a scene still repeated often on the ranches of the West. Before sunrise the cowboys are horseback and beginning their work. Often a cold backed horse will want to exhibit his independence, and every cowboy knows which ones to watch. Even the others know when it is likely for a horse to buck. It is silent, except for the jingle of spur and the creak of leather. The frosty morning has encouraged the bay and makes the puncher aware as he is about to swing a leg over and hope for the best.
