Every year I look forward to reading the Cowboys & Indians “Visions of the West” Issue. There are always so many beautiful photography submissions to look through. This year when the deadline for the annual photo contest was approaching, I decided it was time to submit a few photos of my own. That was in November, and since I hadn’t heard anything back I assumed my photo was just among those submitted that didn’t make the cut. Much to my surprise an issue arrived in the mail on January 15th and one of my photos had made the issue. I was thrilled to have one of my images be featured among so many beautiful shots! Below is the image that was featured in the Farm and Ranch Life category. The category is described as: Shots incorporating trusty farm animals and beloved family pets.
