Saturday morning, the King Ranch Quarter Horse brigade was up well before dawn. James and I fed his Border Collie, Domino, before the sun broke. We were back at the arena in time to witness a brilliant pink and orange sunrise. During the sale, all the horses were ridden into the arena one at a time. e announcers then informed the audience about particulars like age, breeding, background, and training. I was honored to have documented the Return to the Remuda sale as a representative of King Ranch. ere are many parallels between my approach to analog photography and the traditions of all of these Texas ranches. Some methods stand the test of time and allow us to continue our legacies and tell our stories from generation to generation. I am inspired by the work of so many before me, from great- great-great-grandfather Richard King to every Kine ñ o who has worked on King Ranch, from the gifted photographer Toni Frissell who captured time- less photographs at King Ranch in the 1930s and 1940s to all my family members who have worked to preserve our legacy. We are proud this event has become one of the premier ranch horse sales in the country. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the public appreciate our hard work. DR.
