A common plotline for a Western is the CattleDrive. Ranches raise cattle, but then they need to get them to market. Usually the target is a town along the railroad, but occasionally the destination is somewhere else. A Western based on a CattleDrive is more likely to star plain old Working {{cowboy}}s as the stars, rather than using them as scenery.
