A Piece of Western Americana

"Los Bastardos Viejos"

Have you ever wanted to own a piece of the American West? Buying a small High Plateau horse ranch on the Fremont River isn't practical for most people these days. Even taking that dream vacation to personally visit the High Plateau is out of reach for many during these tough economic times. However, for five bucks, you might win a handmade western saddle, and if you do, Dangerous and Fremont Bob will put it on one of their horses or mules and take you for a ride. If you don't ride, buy a nice saddle stand and put it in your study or office. If anyone asks, you can tell them stories from my blog about riding the High Plateau with me and my friends.

Handmade Saddle

A bunch of real cowboys spent the past two winters building this handsome western saddle which they donated to the Future Farmer's of America (FFA) at Wayne High School. For five dollars, you can buy a raffle ticket with a chance to win the saddle built by "Los Bastardos Viejos." All the proceeds go to the High School to support its FFA programs.

If you are interested, stop by the Chuck Wagon in Torrey, Utah. They can tell you where to see the saddle and probably sell you a ticket. If you are too far away, call the Chuck Wagon and ask for Clark (435-425-3288). Clark can tell you how to buy a raffle ticket. You can also leave me a comment, and I will help you get a ticket. Who knows? You might be the lucky winner and get to ride with Dangerous Doug and Fremont Bob. Better yet, you will get to meet me.
