The old cowboy saying of “no hoof, no horse” is especially important as we enter the wet spring season. . If your horse has good feet, you’ve got a horse. If your horse has problems with his hooves, sadly, you don’t have much of a horse you can use that day. . So, I pick Whiskey’s feet every day whether we work or not. It’s a good opportunity to check for issues and address them before they become problems. . And, having your horse willingly give you their feet builds that respect level and relationship you need. . So, each day, and every day, get down there and pick those feet! Have a great day y’all! . . . . . . . #ranchhorse #americanwest #westernheritage #cowboylife #ranchlife #ranchwork #cowboy #longlivecowboys #horses #westernlife #cowboyaccountant #horsemanship #horsemanshiptraining #cowboyhorse #westernlifestyle #westernwednesday #americancowboy #texascowboy #horsehoof #horseshoe #horsecare #horseshoeing #horseshoes #hoofcare #hoofpick
No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle. . Who do you think said this famous cowboy quote? .

It’s been said that the real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money. . Well, that got me to thinking about the type of wealth I want to build. One based on money or one based on family, friends, health, and a joyful way of life? . I believe even in these unusual times (and especially in these unusual times), we can all become very wealthy by simply redefining what wealth means to us. . For you, is it time outdoors for some fresh air, time to play games around the kitchen table, or maybe time to simply gain more knowledge by reading a good book (remember those)? . So, tell me friend, what wealth are you building today? 👇🏼 . . . . . . . #americanwest #westernheritage #cowboylife #ranchliving #livingmyownwestern #cowboyaccountant #horselifestyle #westernlifestyle #cowboywisdom #wisdomquotes #wisewordsoftheday #doubleyourmoney #weekendwisdom #wisdomquote #cowboywayoflife #moneyquotes
Of all the things I have to accept in my life, I pray silently that God will never let me know the last time I get to ride this horse. . . . . . . . #ranchhorse #stockhorse #cowhorse #americanwest #aqhaproud #aqhamare #bayroan #hancockhorses #hancockbred #westernheritage #cowboylife #ranch #cowboylifestyle #horses #westernlife #cowboyaccountant #horseback #westernlifestyle #americancowboy #texascowboy #meandmyhorse #horsebackriding #horsebackrider #takingabreak #cowboyhorse #roanhorses
When things get tricky, it’s time to get focused. . In life, and in horsemanship, sometimes things need to be perfect and sometimes they can be good enough. Experience will help guide your focus. Make it a great day my friend! . . . . . . . #ranchhorse #americanwest #bayroan #westernheritage #cowboylife #cowboy #horses #westernlife #cowboyaccountant #horseback #westernlifestyle #cowboywisdom #westernwednesday #americancowboy #texascowboy #saddleup #cowboyhat #cowboyhats #thisoldhat #weliveiteveryday #forlandforlife #tackingup #wildrags #saddlehorse #saddlehorn #cowboyway #cowboy_features
Thankful and positive. Every day. No matter what comes our way. (Hey, that rhymes!) . For many years, I would ask negative questions like, “What’s the 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙨𝙩 that could happen?” or “Why 𝙙𝙤𝙣’𝙩 we try this?” . I realized that every time I said those negative words out loud (or even in my head) I was fueling more negativity. I was feeding it. I was accepting it in my life. . So, I made a commitment to myself several years ago, to adopt a thankful, positive attitude in my words, my thoughts, and my actions. And, you know what? A positive mindset gets positive results. . If you’re thinking this is just a bunch of psychological babbling, maybe you’re right. But, here’s the thing: it works! . So, consider doing your best every day to be thankful and positive. And, in that, you’ll be happier. Especially in these unique times! .

No matter what, we always reserve the right to be happy. The outlook for everything that happens in our lives is based solely on how we see it in that moment.

About

Howdy! I’m Chip Schweiger, The Cowboy Accountant, and I sure am glad you’re here to join me on this journey through the American West, the cowboy way of life, and the stories of those who are living it. You might be wondering why I started this blog. Well, in my professional travels from the horse country of California, to Texas, to the vast open ranges of Colorado and Wyoming, through Utah and Nevada, and back home to Texas again, I have been fortunate to learn about the unique history of the American West.

The American West and the cowboy way

The more I learned about the men and women who work the ranches of the American West, the more I learned about the true ideals of the American cowboy: a celebration of the western way of life, the positive impact the ways of the cowboy can have on modern society, a recognition of the authentic partnership between a horse and rider, and the common bond of mankind coming together around these ideals. 

When I write about cowboys, it’s either about the cowboys of the old west or the cowboys and cowgirls of today. You see, cowboy is a state of mind of authenticity and grit and compassion. And, in a world that needs more cowboys, I use the term as a compliment to the men and women I am fortunate to encounter.

Ride along with me, mi amigo

So, here you can learn about the unique history of the American West, the ways and wisdom of the cowboy, and what we can learn from how these American heroes go about providing food for the world while preserving the legacy of the American West.  Cowboys have the coolest gear and gadgets, so we’ll talk about those too!

I’m a full-time CPA and a part-time cowboy, and when I’m not practicing accounting, I can usually be found horseback on my Hancock-bred mare, Whiskey. I welcome you to read about my journey as a horseman, with horsemanship tips for you in your journey.

All of this with the hope that together we can continue to preserve, protect, and promote the legacy of the working cowboy and our unique western heritage.

I’m very honored to have you here, mi amigo, and hope you’ll ride with me.

Please read on. ★
