I know this is an older thread but I thought I'd come back to it. I just got back from Montana helping the in-laws. On the way back through I got to stop in Billings and a place called Buckaroo businesses. I've been ontheir website a bunch so I had the opportunity to go to the actual toy store. Un frickin believable the stuff they had. It was so cool!!!! The point of this was I walked into one room and the whole wall was full of silver mounted Bits and spurs. As I said I'm wanting to start getting one every now and then for future hand me down type stuff with my girls. I almost got one but my wife got alittle hinky about it right then. Something about us haveing 2200 miles to go to get home and she wanted to make sure we had enough money to get home. I told her we could just sleep in the tack room of the trailer instead of a hotel every night and we would be fine but she didn't love the idea. Anyway here is a link to show the kind of stuff they had.

Always an enjoyable stop. And if I buy, I just look at it as additional motivation to show back up at work. :)

I'm betting y'all drove within a stone's throw of my place. Next visit, stop by for coffee.

I'm not sure where y'all are. On the way out we came out 80 across Nebraska to ogallala up through kaycee Wyoming, the Sheridan. On the way back we went across 90 through Dakota. We did stay in Sheridan on the way out and back for a night. I really liked Sheridan.

They had a blue and sterling Santa Barbara bit with a Half breed mouth that I was eyeing pretty hard.
