    Look how much we've done as humans in only 150 years. Fucking crazy. Kinda scary actually. I'd love to see the world in another 150.

    I love the cowboy ones. The shotgun trousers are so cool and its interesting to see their position in seat when they ride all day long. And the tack they used. They didn't want any nonsense from their horse and the bits and drop nose bands are pretty much cruel. Interesting. But if they tore a horse up they just picked another one out.

    Great post as always:horseback:

    Awesome thread as usual LT. I like the sign above the door of McLeod's cabin. Also, I'd give my left nut to own that rifle that he's holding.
    The grave digger pic is pretty damn macabre and gave me the goosebumps.

    How was a Lincoln conspirator still alive in 1868? I thought they were hanged in 1865.

    And it's "Wild Bill Hickock" not "With Bill Hickock."
