When God Made Cowboys
Gather round, little buckaroos, once in a while there is something worth checking out in the online news. This is one of them. "Buck," is a new film about the real Horse Whisperer, Buck Brannaman. I like horses, and I like cowboys, so it's a no-brainer for me (be nice). As one of the critics said, "This movie might make you a better person." I might not be the only one who could benefit from that. It's a beautiful trailer and a beautiful idea, put into practice by what appears to be a beautiful man. And, as trite as some folks might find it, I think I could agree with what one man said about Buck, "God had him in mind when he made a cowboy."

This sounds like a super movie, I have not seen anything about it until now. I like his whole ideal he offers.I talk to every horse I meet, there is a charm in them for me.ReplyDelete
We love the cinema and so it is always good to have a recommendation for a new film.
We will certainly add 'Buck' to our list of films to be seen. Thank you!

wow wow wow. Thank you for this! I don't know any horses, but I'm in awe of them just the same.ReplyDelete
so would you believe, i started watching seabiscuit last night--for the first time! it had a profound effect of LOve on me.ReplyDelete
i'm going to finish the movie tonight.
Thank you all for your comments, and Michelle, I am not surprised at all.... :)ReplyDelete
I'm really looking forward to this film.
For me...this is a "must see" possibly a "must own". You know I love all animals, especially horses and dogs. OOh gosh, can't wait... I didn't even know about this. Thanks TeresaReplyDelete
I love documentaries like this, so I'll watch for it. Thank you!ReplyDelete
I'll watch it! I've secretly toyed with the idea of a vacation on one of those Dude ranchs someday.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ladies, I think this will be well worth watching and yes, maybe even owning, and I don't buy too many videos. It does my heart untold good, just knowing there is someone so full of compassion for horses and their people out there making a real difference.ReplyDelete

"Remember, geese are our friends, Earistotle," she whispered into his big, adorable ears.ReplyDelete
Thanks for a wonderful suggestion on the movie...I love movies worth watching. Figure if I'm going to invest time ...it should be meaningful. thanks Teresa. And hey...who doesn't dig cowboys!ReplyDelete
Might have to break our spree of no movies in eons to see this one, I think I read a book or saw a tv movie about a horse whisperer; animals can tell who to trust that's for sure.ReplyDelete
Cowboys, huh? Trouble is, most of them in Montana are like Chance and Rooney. Ha ha But there's a mystique about them.ReplyDelete
Well, my dumb computer won't play the clip, but I LOVE the poster!! I hadn't heard of this movie, I'm so glad you brought it to our attention. I love horses too, and the cowboys who "whisper" to them!!ReplyDelete
Talking to horsesReplyDelete
In the middle of a field,
Wisdom all around.
Linda, Robert Redfor played a version of this guy in a movie called, "The Horse Whisperer," several years ago. Perhaps you're recalling that one. yes, animals do know who they can trust. Very much so.ReplyDelete
Manzi, Yeah, it seems those cowboys can be trouble, but we like 'em anyway... ;)
Joan, Google it on youtube and you'll find a couple of nice trailers for it. It's good to hear from you. Tennessee has a different type of cowboy.... I've known one or two. :)
Paul, That is Very nice. I like it, a lot. Thank you.
The Washington Post ran a lengthy article about him last year. You're right, this is one super guy, a real cowboy!ReplyDelete
His humanity, on a higher level, came through in this video clip so very clearly.ReplyDelete
