Buster Bickford - Back in the '20s and back in there, there was just the cow and a plow. That's all it was. And I learned to ride, and learned to ride pretty good. Yeah, I've done it all my life. Well, what changed the ranch life more than anything, you used to ride your pasture, you know, worm days, maybe twice, three or four times a week. What changed it more was the Model T. Instead of riding a horse, you took the Model T. No horseback. I remember one year we doctored out there. It rained and rained, and the horses were bogging that deep. And cattle were bogging. The cattle couldn't run off in that mud. And we'd throw 'em upside the fence in little bunches, and just ride in there and drag the calves out in mud that deep, and doctor 'em. Of course, when it was wet, you couldn't go, you had to...Hell, they couldn't run off as boggy as it was. And did that every week, twice a week. But, I tell you what changed the ranch right now is these goose-neck trailers. You mobile, I'm telling you, you can move...take two trailers and move eight or ten horses.
Freddy Fagan - You can do more with less horses.
Buster Bickford - Less horses, less men.
