Catching Mounts

Catching Mounts, oil painting by Herman Walker. Early in the morning each man goes into the horse lot and catches his mount for the day. These vaqueros near Bracketville all ride horses born and raised on this ranch, many of which these very men broke and gentled according to ancient Mexican tradition.
