In this cowboy game you're a ranch hand and the animals are
out of control. Its your job to restore order to the ranch
before someone gets injured. The first cattle ranch in north
America is believed to have opened in 1658 110 miles east of
New York on land the settlers purchased from the native
Americans in 1643 with ranching itself being introduced by
the Spanish who operated similar practises in large swathes
of land in parts of Spain. As settlers moved westwards with
their cattle they were joined by farmers who grew crops.
Initially the cattle were able to roam freely however by 1862
the Homestead Act had been passed requiring each range to be
fenced off to protect farming crops. After you've play this
