Of course, although we might not know the name of the top of our heads, we all recognize the great Barry Corbin in this scene. We’ve seen him in Urban Cowboy, Dallas, One Tree Hill, The Ranch, and more, but here, he plays an anonymous wise old cowboy at the Four Sixes Ranch in West Texas.
Jimmy (Jefferson White) is banished from the YellowstoneDutton Ranch after breaking his word to John Dutton (Kevin Costner), so he’s gonna head down to Texas to learn how to be a real cowboy.
And he’s in for a rude awakening…
As hard as it was for Jimmy, a meth cook who never rode a horse in his life, up in Montana, Texas was about to introduce a whole different world to Jimmy. One that would make him a better cowboy, and a better person.
But his first encounter, aside from the one with a centipede, is with Barry Corbin’s character, who drops some hard truths about cowboying on Jimmy:
“You’re not a cowboy… I can see it in your eyes. You’re somebody somebody told to come her to so we can make a cowboy outta ya.”
He ain’t wrong…
But then he tells Jimmy what being a cowboy is all about… glorious work, but a thankless endeavor:
“It’s the most glorious work you can do that nobody ever sees.
It takes every inch of ya… you’re gonna risk your life, your horse’s life, and nobody knows if you won or lost… it’s art without an audience until the day you die.”
I can’t think of too many other professions like that…

Taylor Sheridan Purchases The Four Sixes Ranch
The iconic West Texas Ranch, the Four Sixes, has officially been sold toYellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan for a cool $192 million dollars.
According to Fort Worth Report, the 142,000-acre ranch located in Guthrie, Texas, was originally listed for a whopping $340 million, however the most recent listing from Chas S Middleton showed a price of $192,202,200.
A group led by Yellowstone and 1883 creator, Taylor Sheridan, has been confirmed to have made the purchase.
Of course, Taylor and company filmed down at the 6666’s for the most recent season of Yellowstone, as Jefferson White’s character Jimmy Hurdstrom was sent down there by John Dutton (Kevin Costner) to learn how to be a real cowboy.
A while back when talks of the purchase first surfaced, Sheridan, who is a Texas rancher himself, commented on what the legacy of the ranch means to him
“I can’t comment on a pending transaction but I will say this: the legacy of the 6666 Ranch and Miss Marion’s vision for the ranch are vital not only to the ranch itself, but the rich heritage of ranching in Texas.
This legacy is so important to me I chose to highlight it in the upcoming season of ‘Yellowstone’ and will continue to further the legacy and preserve its operations in a manner consistent with that great vision.”
A Four Sixes spinoff is in the works, and now that Sheridan and company officially own the set, it sounds like it’s time to get to work.
