Gal leg spurs

These are 1018/203e/nickel damascus 1 piece spurs.
 I stick to Texas style bits and spurs for the most part, and nothing says Texas style better than the gal leg design. Tom Johnson Sr. was making these in Coleman, Tx( next town south of us) in the late 1800's. I'm sure there were earlier versions, but he was the first to have a name for making them.

These spurs have a 2 1/2 inch shank, with a six point, 1 1/2 inch rowel. Nate will be the envy of the Stanford area, sporting these around the coffee shop.

Yes, that is ice in the picture. We can't buy a decent snow or rain. Just ice and wind, which hurts our winter grazing, and makes it tough to get around. It has been a tough winter and is going to last a long time according to my forecaster.
