Bill Pickett Frames Art Print


When cowboys began to put on shows and eventually rodeos in towns in Texas, Colorado, and Wyoming, bulldogging became popular. In the rodeos the man who was thought to be just about the best bulldogger in the country was an African Cowboy by the name of Bill Pickett. According to Pickett’s boss, Zack Miller, “Bill Pickett was the greatest sweat-and dirt cowhand that ever lived- bar none. ”From the earliest days of trail driving it was sometimes necessary to rope steers which broke away from the herd. Roping a running steer was not easy.The cowboy often threw many misses, and the steer could be a long way from the herd before it was brought down. At times a cowboy forgot his rope and then he tried to bring down a steer by hand.

If we think of the AfricanCowboy in isolation as a product of slavery with no past
history and neglect to look back to a time on the continent of Africa when Black
Men and Women created the first civilization and built empires. then we would see
the young AfricanCowboys and Women of the Old West were just continuing the
traditions of their ancestors back on the continent, where they were some of the
best horse men and cattle breeders bar non.
