The Final Day Of the 1979 Fall Roundup on the Ninety-Six Ranch
October 7, 1979

Along the trail, the buckaroos stayed in camps near a spring or stream. Each camp had a cabin with a wood-burning cook stove and bunks. Outside was a fenced-in area to hold a string of horses, a place to store hay, and a corral. The buckaroos did more than just play cards to entertain themselves; they also ate plenty of good food and tossed around a Frisbee.

It took three days to round up some 2,000 cattle and three more days for the trail drive back to the ranch. The experienced cowhands used a few different tricks to gather the cattle and keep them moving back toward the ranch.
