Bose Ikard was a black slave who was born in Noxubee County, Mississippi in 1843. He was raised by the Milton Ikard family for a short time in Louisiana then moved to a cattle ranch in Texas, where he learned how to ride a horse and use a rope. Once he was freed after the Civil War, Ikard rode along with Oliver Loving until Loving was killed by the Comanche Indians. Then he hired himself out to Texas cowboy Charles Goodnight.
