Save The Cowboy

One of the fun side-effects of playing the online version of  The Yard Art Game, is that we all get a snap shot of local flair. We learned that rural eastern North Carolina has an abundance of seahorse bird baths but other areas of the country does not share the seahorse love. Savannah Georgia has an abundance yard artists of unique flamboyance who have an affinity for gold objects. And Texans, God love 'em, can't help but be Texans.

Tufa Girl submits:

How many cowboy had to die so that this fence could have western finials? People stop clubbing cowboys for their foot wear. It is inhumane.
Apparently, Texans are also quite literal.

  • 11 boots adore an otherwise boring fence: 11 points
  • Boot wheel that is a wheel bedecked with boots (hmmmm): 1 point
Subtotal: 12 points

Creativity Bonus

I don't know if this is common for ranches or not so I am calling it unique. As a side note, if I were a cow on Boot Wheel, I would collapse when I saw that brand coming: 3 points

Total: 15 points

Tufa Girl is sending The Higher Power a challenge:

 I have found it is best not to taunt The Higher Power


  1. I would give anything to try my hand at a spin of the boot wheel.

  2. The horror!

    Now all my friends know that I have a little cowboy boot fetish. I myself own upwards of 7 pairs. But I swear, I never harmed one hair on the head of one cowboy to get those boots. All my boots were ethically obtained. When I got those boots, the cowboys were already dead.

  3. Qorviq, You spin the wheel... you take the consequences.

    Lola Nova, I am quite aware of your cowboy boot fetish. Good to know your boots are obtained by natural methods. You know sometimes they shed their boots when they grow.

    Great clip but a bit dark first thing in the morning. Marlon Brando was such a talented lunatic.

  4. Texas is so weird. I am so glad I don't live there anymore, ah I don't miss a thing!

  5. Ohhh, Sneaky sneaky. Those are rocks and seashells aren’t they? Thank God it’s not just rocks and seashells, or I would laugh at you. But you would get 1 point for these. Not for the rocks and seashells mind you, but for the large, earthenware turtles they are glued to. You haven’t shown me exceptional rocks, just snazzy turtles.

    …Well… you may get an extra point for the guy up front; I’ve been staring at it for the last 5 minutes and can’t decide whether his multi-tiered shell is overdramatic or just magnificent.

  6. The multi-tiered shell is magnificent requiring the crafter minutes more of intense labor.

  7. awesome. but noooooooooooooooooooooo- i am only 2 points ahead.

  8. Are you feeling the heat, Diane?

  9. And dont walk by the Boot Wheel Ranch is your favorite boots if they have not finshed their fencing....
