Bits,spurs, and knives. The ranch. Any thing else I do.

These are one piece spurs using 4140 for the steel. The 4140 is a little harder to forge than some of the other steels that could be used, but it is a lot stronger. These are ladies spurs, and I was able to thin the bands down to reduce the weight, and not worry about them bending out of shape when being used hard.
The font I use for the silver name is lucinda hand writing. It is probably the most popular thing requested on my spurs.
It was back to the mid 90's on the ranch today. Our cold front didn't last long. We are just about out of grass, and will be feeding hay in a week or so. We can usually manage to make it through Christmas in most pastures without hay, and don't hay at all in some. It's gonna be a LONG winter. It could be worse, I could have been a cotton farmer.
