Retired Parker Ranch manager and cowboy, Jamie Dowsett, 85, who spent most of his life on horses and has rich stories to tell, is photographed wearing his favorite cowboy hat at 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.
