In this 1930s black-and-white vintage post card illustration, two men and a woman are standing in front of the fictional "Dude Ranch". A small horse stands between the two men, and she looks very unkempt and exhausted. Unfortunately, her owner doesn't appear to care very well for her. The man on the left is dressed in casual ranch clothing with a gun holster around his waist, while the man on the right is dressed in more proper attire. He appears to be very wealthy and may be the owner of Dude Ranch. Beside them, a curvaceous woman is dressed in a ranch outfist consisting of tight-fitting jeans and a low-cut blouse. The two men are discussing the horse in front of them, and the man in the black vest mentions that she's "easy to mount", catching the attention of the young woman beside them- perhaps they're not talking about the horse at all. There are some grasses and cacti growing in the ranch, and a farmhouse appears in the far right of the illustration.
