"...And that song ain't so very far from wrong"

That last line ain't very far from stupid.

See the hazards of careless double negatives? They can triple you up without hardly trying.

Both links show western spurs. The first we call bumpers. I suppose you could use them for English riding also. By the way...The old "Cowboys" rode Spanish Mustangs....No way stubborn,just smart enough NOT to be mistreated. The foot in front of the spur is what makes them brutal.
