    Description
    Ira Wines, Cattle manager "Cattle Boss" of the Spanish Ranch in Northern Nevada readies his mount for the day. A new mount every day. The several hundreds of horses on the Spanish Ranch are seldom ridden and roam freely in large sections or even wider open areas on the ranch. Some large expanses allowing these horses to run a 50 miles loop each day. They are separated in herds of sixty to seventy horses and rounded up daily to alternate mounts. They are "brought to the rope". A semi circular highly movable arrangement that can be erected in minutes in open range or a more permanent set up near ranch headquarters. Some are ridden no more than a couple of days per year. These horses are very powerful, toned by the large ground they cover and the generous feed and water available to them year round. They are called "broncos". referring to seldom ridden domesticated horses. Every morning a rodeo of sorts takes place for a few minutes until the cowboys and their mounts for that day get acquainted. Accidents are not uncommon. within a span of a couple of years everyone ends up in a wreck, some quite serious.
