This is a study of a young cowboy done for a weekly drawing thread last week. He looks rather undernourished to me and I can't see him wrestling steers or heaving bales of hay without keeling over. But I guess he wasn't chosen for the purpose of profiling the real cowboys of the world. I think this is more the San Francisco version...no hate mail from cowboys in SF please.
I happened to look out the dining room window and noticed that the Embden geese had gone into the field with the horse who was grazing there. The horse quite likes the geese and often spent time looking over the fence into their pen, much to their horror at the time. But they got used to her and she never harms them so they hang out together in the field sometimes.
The changing colours of the leaves and the peace of the animals together is always warming. This is also the view I see from the studio that I work in, just on a higher level.
