Dave Cottrell's comment, July 31, 2:32 PM
Even in our old log barns, chicken coops and sheep sheds back on the farm, it was recognized by everyone as very important to clean them out. Not only that, but we had the added benefit of composted manure for the garden, and for many other gardens. People in the area would gladly help clean out the barn for a truckload of manure to compost.

I Can See By Your Outfit That You Are a Cowboy - Buffalo Bill Center of the West

Today "cowboy" and "cowgirl" clothing are very popular fashions, whether or not you take part in the actual tasks of a cowpoke. But while many enjoy the style and comfort of cowboy clothing, all the original cowboy garb was actually designed for specific functions to help the cowboy in their tasks.
Chuck Bartok's insight:

Did You Know:
 What we now call a “cowboy boot” was not  designed until the mid-1870s. This new type of footwear enabled the cowboy to do his work far better and also added extra protection against the elements. A significant feature of these boots were their height (about seventeen inches). The extra length protected the cowboy’s legs from brush, thorns, snake bites, chaffing, and biting cattle

7 Reasons for Declining Horse Ownership

7 Reasons for Declining Horse Ownership | Today's Horse Sense | Scoop.it

The decline in horse ownership is not surprising. What is surprising to me is the surprise that it is so. Baber Ranch stopped breeding horses in 2007 for three reasons:

As an equine appraiser I knew the market was about to tank and we operated a for-profit business.As an appraiser I carefully monitored equine markets. I could no longer watch so many well bred and beautiful horses pass through even the high-end sales without one bid. Foals began looking like puppies in the pound waiting for homes that may not materialize.God was clearing the way for us to change course and follow a new path.
