-Available on DVD: yes

-I own: yes
-Clothing occurence: medium-
-Rating: 3/10 *
-Rating: ***
-Comment: Several boys (and maybe girls as well) as Cowboys and Indians, I think mainly Indians and some few like Mexicans including this one. Most scenes at the beginning. Also many boys in Lederhosen (other blog, rating 8).

I even bought this on DVD.

I don’t like these scenes of Indians. In colour might be much better, It’s also not a Western.

So rating ~3 only.

More infos on my Lederhosen blog.

-Comment: Bobby Diamond as 9 yo orphan Joey (season 1) and many other guest stars including Bill Chapin and Jimmy Baird. Pic 4 from s4e2, I think showing Joey on left. Later, I found s1e11 with nice junior rodeo scenes including chaps and Cowboy hats including supporting actors. I previously thought of rating 5-(6), now ~6-7.

Of course a famous ranch series. Riding scenes and tight jeans.

I only have checked some few parts and have to recheck the complete series.

Rating 5-6 for now. Not a real Western anyway.

Rating 6-7.

-Comment: At least pigtailed Amber Marschall wearing a black Cowboy hat, and in different beige hats (no pigtails). Also others on a ranch including younger girls and mainly older teen boys/young men.

Series is currently being aired on Bibel.Tv (not sure which season), but I usually don’t watch it.

Pic is from a 2015 trailer (unknown episode).

Quite interesting, but rather typical ranch series. I haven’t found very good scenes. Obviously very few scenes of younger actors (mainly or only some few girls). Maybe no bib overtalls. But needs to be rechecked.

Update: I found some younger kids including boys like in s11e7. Another young boy riding (pic on IMDb, unkown name, unknown episode.)

-Rating: ****
-Comment: Joey Scott, I think unpictured, blonde boy ~7 yo, and at least one other boy in ranch clothes and jeans.

Soon to be released on DVD in Germany next week (15 episodes only).

Pics from s1e19.

Needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 4 for now only. I assume few good Western clothes scenes. Interesting farm series, though. Riding scenes, but not sure if notable scenes of boys. Main plot is about the girl. Remake of the 1944 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor, which won 2 Oscars.

Comment: By coincidence, I stumbled again on this series. Pic from a YouTube demo reel (unknown episode).

I don’t remember the complete series. But I assume very few Western clothes scenes.

So rating 3 only. Movie itself a higher rating. Handsome blonde boy. Some good scenes.

Also on my bedroom blog since 2012, rating 6.

Comment: Knut Mahlke (“Die Trapp-Familie”) and Michael Gebühr as young Cowboys with beige Cowboy hats and nice light colored, maybe yellow Western shirts with shiny parts.

I don’t know this movie and only found some pics. One showing Michael Gebühr is this


Knut Mahlke looking similar but even more handsome. I assume rather few scenes in a Circus. The movie is not on DVD. I hope for a soon broadcasting or upload. English title: The Dark Star.

Rating 5-6 for now.

-Comment: Jason Horst in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s4e10. I don’t like much this boy, but some very good jeans scenes near the end. Sorry, I don’t want to show too indescent pics. He’s also shown without the hat and sitting and cycling, I think not riding. Also a lady and men in Cowboy hats, woman also riding.

Has been aired yesterday. Very good ranch setting and scenes.

I think, I have to give rating 7.

Main entry, previously rating 4 for s1e9 (also on some of my other blogs)

Interesting ranch series, nice jeans, rating 6-7 for now. But I don’t know the complete series. There’s also at least one teen girl in pigtails, soon on my other blog.

I only have rechecked it at high speed and only noticed few good Western clothes scenes.

Set between 1940-1959. Picture maybe in the late 50s ?

So rating 4 only.
