  • 24. Background
    • Think about what we learned from Old Yeller and the Bear about cattle drives and cowboys.
    • Cattle needed to be moved from Texas to the railroad in Kansas.
    • They needed workers (cowboys) to help move the cattle.
  • 25. Background
    • The first cowboys were called vaqueros , a Spanish word meaning ranch hand.
    • They developed the tools and equipment used by cowboys.
    • They developed the techniques (or ways of doing things) used by cowboys.
  • 26. Background
    • Rodeos were competitions developed to show off the skills of cowboys and vaqueros.
    • The cowboys had to show skills by doing tasks like roping, riding horses, and riding bulls.
    • Some of these became big shows that traveled from town to town attracting audiences in the thousands.
  • 27. Background
    • Bulldogging is a way of controlling a steer by grabbing their horns and twisting their neck.
    • Why would cowboys need to know how to do this?
