Leroy Webb The Last Cowboy
Donn Davis, member of the Cowboy Hall of Fame:
“Leroy Webb is the best cowboy that I’ve ever known, and I’ll back that up any day! He doesn’t have a big ego, doesn’t use profanity, and I’ve never seen him lose his temper. He’s never tried to be a ladies’ man or big time cowboy — he’s just a true gentleman.”
Carlos Ortiz, former manager of the Arnett Clabber Hill Ranch:
“If Leroy had ever decided to focus in on rodeos, he would have been a world champion roper. It would have been hard to catch him because everything he did, he did it right. He’s like a god to me. When he’s gone, there won’t be any more like him. He’s one of a kind.”
Leroy Webb The Last Cowboy is the story of my uncle Leroy and of course he isn’t really the last cowboy, but he is certainly a cowboy! Davis Ford (Dr. Davis L. Ford) has written two books about Leroy; one is a children’s book – which my grandchildren love.
One day I will post photographs of Leroy’s quarterhorse Pawnee Eagle.
Pawnee Eagle was a champion quarterhorse.
In 2008, Leroy was awarded the Buck Ramsey Heritage Award.
