My Horse is bigger than your Horse…of course.


According to The Bear, rumor has it that Lorne Greene, on the right, was “family” and had a thing for Asian guys…

Sight seen at Elmer’s in Palm Springs. Restaurant decorated with historic photographs.

What happens in the Barn…

They say what happens in the barn stays in the barn. Haven’t seen this young man lately? Maybe could be that he’s…staying in the barn! Hah. It could even happen to you. Chore boy applications being taken now for summer work…and play!

Real Rural

This guy would spend his last dime to ride bulls…how about you?

Real Urban Cowboy…Really

He got onto his horse and he rode into the city. Hat, boots, bandana, duster, even spurs: this dude’s got it all. No event. He’s just riding through town. A sight seen in Willits, California. Hippies, cowboys, farmers, bikers in a Far West mix. In Mendocino County, a town with 5 stoplights qualifies as a city. Seriously. This is NorCal. Not LA. You know what they say…save a horse. Ride a cowboy!

Sights seen at Truck Stops: Old Cowboy buys Smokes on CA Hwy 101

This guy moved like a twangy old country music tune. Slow, strong and regular. Horseless cowboy traveling California State Highway 101 by truck, he stopped to buy smokes. Got shot in the back and never knew it. One, two, three: Snap!
