Cowboys and Ranching

This gallery highlights our photographs of University Of Arizona's V Bar V ranch.
This is a working ranch that has been in operation since the 1900s. We were able to spend some time with the staff as they were preparing to move the herd from the "High Country" down to the lower elevation. Due the challenging terrain they must rely on horses to push the herd between the different sections of the ranch. So even though this ranch is owned by a modern university, they still rely on good ole cowboy skills. Also the ranch still has a number of original buildings making it an ideal location for "Cowboy" and western photography
