Though they were warned, some mammas did let their babies grow up to be cowboys. These tough hombres wake before daybreak and hit the hay early, but only after a long day of riding and tending to their cattle. It can be a lonely life sometimes, but these fellas don't mind a bit. They love working out there in the endless, wide open spaces. They cherish the fresh air, the freedom. See cowboys photographed against beautiful western skies in this handsome calendar that celebrates their noble way of life.
