"I got a horse when I was seven," Jake Zielke said. "We more or less saved it from the slaughterhouse because it was old. The first year, I rode it bareback before I could save up enough money to buy a saddle."
Little did he know this first step would lead him to travel to every habitable continent -where has made his living as a cowboy.
The purchase of "Snowball" was one of Zielke's first steps in becoming a cowboy.
Zielke started his years in Estes Park, Colo. where his father was working as a brewer. His father, Richard, is currently the brewmaster at the Saratoga Resort and Spa.
