Welcome to our new Being Texan video series, in which we’ll explore the dreams and realities of Texans from all walks of life, from the Panhandle to the Gulf Coast, the Trans-Pecos to the Piney Woods.

Director Chris Beier’s first video for the series, about first-generation young cowboys looking to test their mettle against a flesh-and-blood steer, is below.

We’ll be publishing new videos here each month. Want to help us find the next great story? Email us here.
