Land of Four Seasons

"I used to break horses for Joe Mendiburu, he'd gather horses from the desert and I'd get 'em trained so you could ride them. The hardest ones to work with, though, were from the Fickert Ranch in Bear Valley. They'd geld colts and then turn 'em loose on 25,000 acres, and then years later they'd round them up, tie a saddle on 'em and expect you to crawl up on them. That was hard work – those horses hadn't seen a man in years."
