Several years ago I bought a pair of silver heart spurs to make western bookends. Just this afternoon, I finally got around to drilling the holes and putting them together. It is rough cut wood and slightly bowed. The spurs are rustic and the hearts have already started to turn. It does not have the shiny polished look of the set I made for my friend. Still, it has the silver hearts and what girl doesn’t like hearts?
Yes, I know, western bookends and I have no horse books between them. While I don’t own many, I’ve read some of the best - John Lyons’ training books and Monty Robert’s Join-Up and his Shy-Boy, the story of the mustang tamed in the wild.
