The early bridlemen were some of the hardest working cowhands. I have a book about Henry Miller of the Miller and Lux ranch in California. The Miller and Lux Ranch had some pretty incredible hands come out of that outfit. I was rereading the book last week and came upon a story I will paraphrase, Henry Miller visited one of the outfits on his large ranch. The hands were doctoring cattle, he watched as one man flipped a cow (stretched it quickly, making the cow go airborne and land on its side) he immediately fired the man on the spot The cattle baron then insisted that all the cows be laid down correctly if the men wanted to keep there job on his ranch.
