Western Word of the Week - Riding Sign - #WesternWordoftheWeek #WesternWednesdays

Howdy!

Welcome to our Weekly Western Word of the Day...or, as I affectionately call it, Western Wednesdays!

Riding Sign - when a cowboy rode the range following the "sign" (track) of an animal that stayed too far.

When an animal didn't leave enough tracks, they were said to be following a "blind trail" or "cold trail".
