Why didn't they invent cars earlier, that way the cowboys wouldn't need horses?

    They had to wait until all the roads were paved first

    In 1769 the first steam-powered automobile capable of human transportation was built by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot ... is that early enough?

      Yes but it was much slower (2 mph) and probably used a couple of tins of coal to go 5 miles. A horse could do 30 mph on a small sack of oats and a carrot, so were much more use.

    If you had a brain, you would be dangerous.

    If you knew how it to use it, you would be lethal.

    If you actually used it, it would be Armageddon .

    If they used drones then they wouldn't need cars.

    There weren't many roads back in the frontier days. The roads they had turned to mud when it rained. Horses were more practical under those conditions (and still are more practical when it comes to moving cattle around).

    Cowboys still use horses. They can go over most terrain unlike even the best off-road vehicles. Plus horses don't tear up the pastures.
