“Cowboys often work long, hard days, and just as often, the nights are very short. This bronze depicts a tired cowboy winding up one of these days. The hackamore in his left hand indicates that, along with doing the work of the day with the rest of the cowboys, he has been pulling around some stiff-necked broncs and he has been jerked around by them. He’ll get what rest he can, and at daylight, he’ll be back at it again.” ——Grant Speed
