The Last Real Cowboy

I’m not really sure who this is, possibly my great grandpa on my mother’s side, but the photo has been around forever. I scanned it along with all the other older family photos my mother had a few years ago and came across it again today. It doesn’t matter who it is because I never met him, but this photo says a lot to me about where I come from I suppose. My family were pretty early settlers in north Idaho, where I imagine this was taken, some of them accidental explorers, all of them probably farmers, but this guy… this guy stands out. I imagine he was a simple man who rarely spoke and was not affectionate with his kids, but he loved his horses and simple life.
