We welcome your pictures. We're looking for images that give a glimpse of the ranching, cowboy, and rural and working life of the West of today and yesterday. We're looking for vintage photos and contemporary photos: family photos, images of where you live and work, and the area around you. 

If you have a photo to share, email us for information about sending it to us.

Each week, we'll post selected photos from those received. We'll also share some photos posted previously elsewhere at CowboyPoetry.com.

The cowboys in Oklahoma rancher and poet Jay Snider's family are featured inside the forthcoming CD, The BAR-D Roundup: Volume Four (2009). Each year, the CD includes a photo from a working ranch family.


Oklahoma rancher and poet Jay Snider's cowboying family, including his two brothers, two sons, two nephews, and father. From left: Joe Tom Snider, Jason Snider, Justin Snider, Jay Snider, Gene Snider, Rusty Snider, Ryan Snider, and Monte Snider at the Snider's annual Rafter S Ranch Cowboy Reunion, 1997.
 

  Jay shared some photos of next generation as well. The first is of his grandson, Rowdy, and Jay included the verse below:

So tiny, so precious
My gosh how he's grown
Reminds me so much
Of that boy of my own
 

ShyAnn is Rowdy's sister:

Ruby Jean, shown with her father, Jason, is the other recent addition to the Snider line. This photograph is from a September, 2007 Picture the West:
