  • 5 Western Brands Made in the USA

    With the events of the past few months, many are starting to wonder where their favorite products are made, and we western folk are no exception. Some of us have even decided to start buying only USA made products from now on. That can be hard to accomplish though. With the exception of smaller, local brands, you'll find that most of the name brands in the western clothing, boot, and accessory industries have long been outsourcing their production to other countries.

  • 4 Western Montana Guest Ranches for Glamping

    For us in Western and Northwestern Montana who either live on a working cattle ranch or have friends that do, glamping is a bit of a curious thing. We don't really know whether to dismissively laugh at it and pity the poor souls who want luxury of a top hotel while staying in a tent or cabin, or to start crunching numbers and think about opening a glamping ranch ourselves.
  • 10 Montana Saddle Makers That Defy The Odds

    Back in 2018, Voice Of America published an article that claimed saddle makers were a dying breed in the American West. Fast forward a couple of years, and it seems they spoke way too soon. Here in Montana, we love our country/cowboy lifestyle, and we love our horses. Not only that, but we have quite a few saddle makers who produce quality custom saddles by hand even for such celebrities of the western world as Buck Brannaman, Curt Pate, and Tom Selleck.

    Did you know that the month of May is the National BBQ Month? If you're a rancher, cowboy, or cowgirl, you might argue that every month is a barbecue month, but most other folks out there usually don't start grilling until the weather gets warmer. So, in honor of the National BBQ Month, I'm taking a risky move of stepping into the arguments about the best barbecue in the good ol' US of A.
  • 5 Western Fashion Trends for Summer

    It used to be that only the ranching and rodeo folk wore what's now called western fashion. Jeans, boots, hats, and wild rags were all - and still are - functional pieces of clothing and accessories, but it seems these days everyone and their brother's a wannabe cowboy or cowgirl. With that, western fashion, similar to mainstream fashion, started following seasonal trends. So, here's what western fashion trends to look for this summer according to those who are paid to predict them.

  • Black Cowboys of the Old West

    Did you know that there were Black cowboys in the Old West? Almost from the earliest days of Texas ranching, cattle drives and cowboys, there were cowboys of African origin who worked the cattle. In honor of the Black History Month, here are a few historical tidbits about that era and a few names you can drop when conversation turns to Black history.
  • How To Choose A Wild Rag That Suits You

    Do you have to be a wild child to wear a wild rag? Nope! Just a cowboy or a cowgirl, or a wannabe. Since the mid-1800's, wild rags have been a staple of cowboys' and cowgirls' outfits, and that's not for fashion reasons either.

  • 7 Best Things about Fall in the Country

    I'd take living in the country over living in the city any time of year, but fall is definitely my favorite season.

Fall foliage and nature scenes are just one of many things I love about fall. Read on to find out what all makes fall in the country so special.
