Nahe Tachera, 9, and sister, Kamehana, 11, dance in the Kahua Ranch barn while their father, Wayne, shoes a horse in North Kohala, Hawaii.  The girls' great-grandfather, grandfather and father are or were all cowboys and they live in "cowboy housing" on the ranch because their father is employed as one of the ranch's cowboys.  The girls learned to ride horses as toddlers and have grown up with the ranch as their playground. "My dad's work is great.  While he works, we can play around the ranch and he doesn't have to worry about us", says Nahe.
