Childhood book from the 50's

Want to identify a book I loved as a kid in the 50's. I think it involved 2 kids, a boy and a girl, who spent some time on ranches in Montana and New Mexico. There were lots of illustrations of horse tack and cowboy gear. I think it may have been about 9"x12". That is really all I can remember. If you can think of anything even close, I will happily explore all suggestions,

identify that book filter: a short, illustrated book with a cowboy.

Ok, I read this book as a kid even though it was not a kid's book. I assume it's a bit obscure. It's a western (I guess?) In that it's set in the desert with a cowboy, but it's not a cowboy book. The story, from what I remember, involves an old, frail but strong cow who has just given birth and her stand-off to death with an old, frail but strong mother wolf or coyote and her cubs in the desert.

Cowboy Hat in NYC

Where in NYC can I buy a cheap, used cowboy hat. Nothing nice at all, just something. If convenient to the upper west side, all the better. Mostly I'm just looking for a place I can go and more likely than not actually find one.

Yet another "what's this movie" question

There's a western from probably the mid to early 70's. I don't remember much except that the main cowboy character ate entire raw onions as a way to prove how badass he was. There was also a scene where he was stuck in the desert with some woman I think. Does anyone know what movie this was?
