    Moving to New Mexico.

    Sampson came to New Mexico when he was young to learn his trade. Here in the Desert Southwest, he was trained to be the gentle animal he is today. He was gentled and hand-fed, getting petted and scratched every day as he grew up with his family.

    The Trainers.

    He was trained by Cowboy Doc and Izzy Ordonez. Doc is an old-fashioned cowboy and western re-enactment actor, and Izzy has been working ranches for years. They raised him under the blue southwestern skies to be gentle, kind, and love to have his picture taken.
