Retired cowboy and ranch manager, Jamie Dowsett, 85, who spent most of his life on horses and has rich stories to tell, prepares a rope before riding one of his horses near his home in Waimea, Hi.  "I'm 85 years old and I still think that cows and horses are the best things that ever walked on earth.  I would give anything if I could still be a cowboy...being out there on the land where nobody bothers you, out in the open where it's quiet...the horses are giving you a wonderful ride in the beautiful countryside...that is a feeling not many people have the opportunity to experience," says Dowsett wistfully.
