Description
 
The Texas Cowpuncher comes in many forms, born by the chunk of country he calls home. Down in Gulf country, Cowboys on horseback can get ornery crossbred Brahmas to do most anything, even swimming the Intercoastal Waterway to winter grazing grounds. Further inland, they rely on their dogs “to bay up” the cattle in the swamps and woodlands, and watch out for the occasional alligator.
In the brush country, cattle hide in thorny mesquite thickets, but fearless Brush Poppers charge right in after them. And in West Texas, branding takes weeks as Punchers move from camp to camp with the wagon and a hunded-horse remuda. The day begins before sunup and doesn’t finish until two gathers and two brandings are done. In this country, there’s a code of conduct, and breaking it has “consequences”. 116 minutes

Ten Feature-Length Documentaries in the Complete Series.
Over 15 hours of Cowboy Entertainment.
Four centuries ago, conquistadors entered what is now known as the American West. They brought horses and cattle and Vaqueros to tend the livestock. These men were some of the world’s greatest horsemen.
The Vaquero Series plays tribute to the Spanish influence on the American cowboy. Branding, roping, rodeo and techniques of handling cattle, all originated with the Spaniards.

Their first settlement was Santa Fe in the 1600s. Then in 1690 they colonized Texas and later in 1767 they settled California. The Vaquero culture spread throughout the West and all the way to Hawaii. When Americans took over this country, they adopted the techniques and terminology — albeit many of the terms became anglicized.

This series takes you down the historical road, but not with dusty old photos. Instead, you meet working cowboys and cowgirls who inherited these rich traditions and use them in their working lives every day.
