    The "1HP" TW

    This was my 1 horsepower TW before I got the TW. The new one doesn't get an attitude and always wants to be ridden. Don't bite or crow hop either.

    I used to sat that too, but here I am using this picture box with a typewriter attached and driving around in them fancy horseless carriages.
    But we still rope cattle and brand the old fashioned way. Squeeze chutes are for sissies. (By sissies I mean folks who can afford em.)
