    I think someone may have learned their lesson and may need reconstructive surgery.

    How odd.

    Most people take their spurs off shortly after they ride. We've stayed at hotels with plenty of reiners and rodeo guys and I don't recall them leaving their spurs on. They catch on everything, and they usually drag on the pavement and it wears them out. Too, how was the guy's face at the guy's calf height?

    I would think it was more likely he had the spurs off, in the truck, and he grabbed them and used them as a hand weapon.

    Wellsummer - I know some of the spurs have shanks that roll up toward the back of the boot, they are quite popular now and cowboys wear them so they can keep the spurs on and not have them sticking out at shank's length until they get ready to mount.

    Quote:The article said he was standing on the trucks running board, (and not just a regular pick up truck) facing into the vehicle, he just let them have it when they came up behind him.

    Good for him! Too bad only one of them got what they had coming!
