"The Good Life"

"Handle With Care" Part of the job on a cattle ranch is to check that all the mothers and babies are doing well during calving season. Here the rancher finds a calf that has gotten into some kind of duress and/or has lost track of it’s mom. He’ll make sure this little one makes it back to safety, he’ll “Handle With Care”.

"Handle With Care"

"Getting Aquainted" Here a skilled horseman/cowhand takes care to give his young mount and a new calf a moment to figure each other out, without any pressure he gives the horse his head and the two share a couple of investigative breaths. They are “Getting Acquainted”.

"Looking for Trouble" A spunky, spirited young calf out lookin’ for a bit of fun and along with it usually comes trouble!

"Looking for Trouble"

"Reflections" This is a brand new work by Canadian artist, Linda Stewart. The horse and rider take a moment out to enjoy a long, cool drink of water. Can they see their “reflection”?

"Patient Partner" Sometimes it is a horse’s job to simply stand quietly and wait, for many horses this is much easier said than done, especially if there is activity around or perhaps they are separated from a friend. Like with all aspects of training it takes practice. Here in Stewart’s new release a handsome quarter horse demonstrates good manners by being the “Patient Partner”.

In the summer of 1999, The Calgary Stampede commissioned Linda to create a sculpture that would portray the ranching tradition in Alberta. The Life-size bronze sculpture depicts a typical ranching scene. The sculpture is aptly named “Roundup” and it now stands at the front entry way to the new Roundup Center. It was unveiled July 10, 2000 during the Calgary Stampede by artist Linda Stewart, Canadian Deputy Prime Minister, Herb Grey, Calgary Stampede President, Rob Matthews and General Manager, Steve Edwards.
