Coming of age story
first person
main character goes to live on Uncle's ranch.
I read it as a kid/teen, so early 80's, maybe late 70s for publication date.

There is a horse named, "Bighead" in the story.
And here is a short description from Worldcat.org

Set shortly after the Civil War, this distinguished novel tells the story of a boy starting a new life in the Concho country of Northwest Texas.

Here's the Amazon "Look Inside" preview of Born of the Sun by John H. Culp- Tab's suggestion:

https://www.amazon.com/Born-Sun-John-... There are different cover images.
