My niece’s husband, Robert, decided to leave the corporate world to become a cowboy. He supported his family by herding cattle to various locations. Other ranch-related tasks took up the day. Rescuing Animals was not part of the job description.
Fate stepped in when Robert’s horse was spooked by a bull. The horse fell on Robert with him sustaining a head injury. After being in a coma, and with many months of physical therapy supervised by his wife, Robert went home with major disabilities that prevented him from resuming his cowboy career.
Today, he’s able to take care of his personal needs. He has found new meaning in his life and is becoming his own version of a cowboy…by getting around their 13-acre property on an ATV to mend fences, feed cattle that sometimes graze on the property and gently guiding his daughter to care for the 4-H goats.
His re-imagined version of sitting round a campfire has become something much greater.
His values as a reimagined cowboy are stronger than ever. Robert rescued Petey, shown in the picture with him. Rescuing Animals Never Goes Out of Style nor does the spirit of a true cowboy…a hero!
