Details: This poster shows a painting of two cowboys in the snow. One is on his horse and the other has his horse ready but is talking with the first man. In the background are the houses of the farm. These two cowboys look to be just starting out for the day's work.
A cowboy tends cattle and horses on cattle ranches. Some cowboys also work in and participate in rodeos. Cowboys are more often associated with (mostly fictitious) Indian-fighting than with their actual life of ranch work and cattle-tending. The cowboy became an archetypal symbol of American individualism. Cowboy can be used in a derogatory sense to describe someone who is violent, impulsive, or behaves in a hot-headed and rash manner.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
