No sooner did we publish our 36 album covers with horses on them then we started to see album covers with horses on them. Everywhere and not ones we had already included. Hence, time for another 36 album covers featuring horses on them. The first post can be found here at Music Album Cover with Horses on Them

In this mosaic of horse-themed album covers, we have several cowboys, and even one album with a title about the field of study of cowboys: the Canadian country singer and songwriter, Ian Tyson's "Cowboyography". We usually think of a cowboy as a uniquely American concept and invention, but did you know that the English word cowboy comes from the Spanish word vaquero, meaning an individual who managed cattle while mounted on horseback? The word buckaroo – another term for a cowboy – is an anglicization of vaquero (think of it as baˈkeɾo).

The 36 albums in this post are from 1966 – 2018, over 50 years of horse (Equus ferus caballus) album covers. Giddyap! Here are the albums used in the composite image:
