"Raising horses and beef cattle"

This artwork as a painting of "Raising horses and beef cattle”, by the rodeo King of the Ropers and western artist William MacLeod.

First, I looked at a illustration of the picture of the cowboy on a Quarter horse with cattle that was originally drawn and illustrated by one of the different artists of probably John Green from a "Favorite Horses Coloring Book" (the book that was published by Dover Publications in the year of May 31st, 2005).

First I had printed the illustration from the "Favorite Horses Coloring Book" and I decided to paint this image of the horse and rider with cattle out of a different field into a different ranch background with a cabin in the background of turning this cowboy into Ryan McCarron and the black American Quarter horse mare named "Black Juice", as when I was painting this portrait of turning this cowboy into Ryan McCarron and the horse named "Black Juice", I was definitely painting this image for three days in approximately in July of 2021.

When I was painting this image, I like to think that this painting will be featured in a chapter of my future book called "All About: Cowboys" as it'll be in a chapter of "What Should Cowboys Actually Do?" and the writing with that painting will say that "The cowboys always raised horses and cattle".
