Joe Aguirre explains the responsibilities of the herder to Jack:  "Eat your supper, breakfast in camp, but you sleep with the sheep, hundred percent, no fire, don't leave no sign."

The type of horse that Ennis rode -- besides Jack -- is a quarter horse. It is a muscular saddle horse and characterized by high speeds in short distances such as a quarter of a mile.

"U" is utopia

.. or the ideal place for Jack and Ennis' love to flourish (or so they thought)...
 i.e.  Jack and Ennis regarded Brokeback mountain as a sacred place, a paradise, their utopia.

"V" is violence

Ennis' interaction with the bikers on the Fourth of July and his encounter with the truck driver on Thanksgiving give testament to the fact that he has a tendency towards violence when angry or upset.
