The shield symbolizes who I am. On the ranch you’re expected to never embarrass yourself, your family, or the cowboy name. My family is fiercely independent and they expect the same from me. Roping and riding for cowboy is just the start. Mending a broken fence, finishing what you start, pullin your weight, delivering a calf, caring for God’s nature is a matter of pride as well as a necessity. I was always taught as a child the importance of an honest days work. I know how to accomplish a job that’s bigger than me. I understand that it’s ok to make a mistake, but it’s not ok to make a lie. I know what it feels like to be tired at the end of the day. Ride for the brand isn’t just a sentence for me, it’s a way of life. Lastly, I want to explain a little about this picture. It represents to me everything I want to become. It’s called Come to Mamma. When a cowboy or cowgirl sets out after a calf with a rope, sure as shooting a calf’s coming back in. There’s nothing that a cowboy can’t catch with his rope. Once a cowboy catches his calf, he goes to the horn. He takes what’s called a dally. A dally symbolizes a wrap around the saddle horn. A cowboy can let the dallys slide to give the calf more slack. But once he decides and stacks on a dally, the calf is comin with him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
