This episode of Ranch Rhymes is brought to you courtesy of renowned cowboy poet, NPR commentator and former large animal vet Baxter Black, who furnished Ross Fuqua with this rendition of "Vanishing Breed?" in anticipation of Baxter's September 19, 2008 performance in Elko. "Vanishing Breed?" is found in Baxter's book, Coyote Cowboy Poetry, one of Baxter's items that are available in our Gift Shop.
