Talk about a legacy. In 1853, river boat Captain Richard King and Texas Ranger Captain “Legs” Lewis caught sight of land near the Santa Gertrudis Creek that would later form the King Ranch and forever link the Texas Rangers and the King Ranch together. . Here is Marsala Red, a ninth-generation descendant of the iconic Old Sorrel. Marsala Red was born, bred, and broke on the King Ranch. He’s now a stallion at stud on the 6666 Ranch in Guthrie, Texas. . 📸: @kingranchinc . . . . . . . #kingranch #kingranchquarterhorses #cowboyhorse #cowhorse #ranchhorse #aqha #ranch #horses #western #westernhistory #cowboyaccountant #westernwednesday #oldsorrel #horsesofinstagram #horse🐴 #horseaddict #horseaddicted #6666ranch #stallion #stallionsofinstagram #studhorse #santagertrudis #kingranchlife #quarterhorse #americanquarterhorse #sorrelhorse

One word. Y’all each new year is the best time to reflect on the word you want to act as your mantra or guiding principle in that year. . The idea is focused around having a central word or theme to guide your actions or what you want to embrace more of in the coming year. Rather than focus on new year's resolutions that don't stick, you can focus on things that help you reach your goals in a more mindful way. . If you’re curious how to determine your word of the year maybe take a moment to reflect and be self-aware. Ask yourself questions that you need to answer to help set you up to achieve your goals in the new year. This exercise can help you identify patterns that can lead you to your word. . Your word can be anything because it’s your word, and yours alone! . Want to make more money in the new year? Want to have better relationships? Feel better physically? If most of your answers point in a certain direction, then choose a word to remind you of what's most important in the new year and stick with it. . My word is 𝗛𝗨𝗦𝗧𝗟𝗘. I believe everything I want to achieve this year comes from my own actions. So if I want it, I feel like I just need to hustle to get it. . What’s your word? . . . . . . . . . #americanwest #cowboys #westernheritage #cowboylife #ranch #cowboy #longlivecowboys #western #cowboyaccountant #westernlifestyle #americancowboy #texascowboy #cowboylogic #mondaymorningmotivation #gettingworkdone #mondaywork #cpalife #hustle💯 #wordoftheyear #cowboyhat #cowboyfashion #cowboystyle #cowboyclothing #ranchstyle #cowboyup #letsdothis #cowboywear #livingmyownwestern #takingcareofbusiness
It’s been said that we can’t control what people say or do to us. We only control how we react. . Well, think about it, if someone wrongs you, there’s no better way to stay on top of the situation than by not letting their actions get to you. Cowboys just move on, and we should too. Have a great weekend y’all! . . . . . . . . . . . #americanwest #cowboys #westernheritage #cowboylife #ranch #longlivecowboys #horses #western #westtexas #oldwest #westernhistory #cowboyaccountant #westernlifestyle #cowboywisdom #cowboylogic #americancowboy #arizonacowboy #forgiveandmoveon #forgiveandforget #forgiveandletgo #weekendthoughts #weekendtherapy #forgiveyourenemies #oldwestern #wayoutwest #stayincontrol #dontletanyonebringyoudown #controlyouremotions #justmoveon #bethebiggerperson
Howdy y’all! Ever sat around and dreamed of how you want your life to be? . If so, just remember that our dreams don’t become reality through magic. It takes goals. It takes sweat, and determination and hard work. . So, starting today, clarify your dreams, apply goals to them, and then work hard at those goals every day! . . . . . . . . #americanwest #westernheritage #cowboylife #ranch #cowboy #western #cowboyaccountant #westernlifestyle #cowboywisdom #americancowboy #texascowboy #ranchwork #ranchchores #farmwork #farmchores #tractorlife #johndeeretractor #johndeeregreen #yardwork #cleaningup #forlandforlife #schaeferoutfitter #turndreamsintoreality #hardworkpaysoffs #yardwork #ranchlifestyle #treeremoval #landclearing
Train your horse to be bulletproof, but don’t assume everyone else has done the same. Be considerate. . Cowboys are considerate of others. Always have been. It’s part of what makes them who they are. . But to be honest, I haven’t always been the most cuddly sort, and I spent a lot of years thinking that to be considerate to others was to be weak. . Fast forward to this modern world where the new motto seems to be “it’s all about me” and I’ve grown to realize it’s OK to be someone who’s kind and considerate. . It doesn’t make us any less strong to help someone else up. To think about others situation. To be considerate. Because we can all use a bit more thoughtfulness coming in our direction, right? . So, let’s give it, and we will surely get it back.

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. ★
