Cowboy Rides Western Lands on Horse

Edgar Oscanoa rides Dot, the former mustang, trails sheep in Upper Gully with the help of border collies and guard dogs. He lives at a camp and works alone at the Ladder Livestock Ranch in southern Wyoming (west of Bags at the Colorado border.) <br />

Peruvian shepherds traditionally work at the ranch watching over sheep.  Dot, an adopted mustang that came from the correctional center in Riverside, saved a shepherd's life by finding his way home on a cold night when they were lost.  Nelson, the saved worker, left years ago but the horse is still a favorite among ranch hands like Edgar. He is steady--rock solid--as they guard the sheep.
