OPB | Feb. 1, 1991 7:30 p.m.

A cowboy can do a little bit of everything, but a buckaroo sticks to tradition. That’s the opinion of one Harney County buckaroo who rides out every day in silvers spurs, with an old-fashioned vest and a scarf around his neck. A buckaroo prefers a horse to a pickup truck, and he’s highly skilled in roping, riding and branding. The word buckaroo comes from the Spanish vaqueros who were the first cattlemen in Oregon.

First Broadcast: 1991
