A group of Israeli cowboys will ride the Pacific Crest Trail
this summer to publicize the 60th anniversary of Israel,
the Middle East's only democracy. The Trail runs 2,650 miles
through mountains, forests, and deserts from Canada to Mexico.
Shaham, an official with the Israel Ministry of Foreign
Affairs who will participate in the ride, says "All
of us care very much about nature. We are not people with
big SUV's; we're paying tribute to the communication between
people in nature."
horse trainer Uri Peleg will lead the group, using his
"natural connection" riding style, which involves
riding a horse without using reins or anything that controls
the horse's head. Through body language, the legs and
some verbal instructions, the horse is controlled.
this year, hundreds of motorcyclists from the U.S., Israel,
Canada and Australia will participate in a cross-country
ride across Israel.

"Like most things
cowboy there was an art to catching wild horses. A well
thrown loop could scoop up the front feet of a running horse
before he could dodge, duck, or jump it, that was the skill
of the houlihan cowboy...."
The Houlihan is one of the
new Steve Miller Signature Collection of western sculptures.
These are truly the most amazing sculptures we've seen yet.

It sure is fun meeting all you kind folks when you walk
through the doors of our shop. One of our favorite stories
was when Lofty Evans from Australia - who we'd been corresponding
with by email - surprised us with a visit within just a
few days of our last email. He brought along some souvenirs
of his beautiful, coastal home of Townsville.
But everyone can't travel to Arizona to press the flesh
with us, so we have to make do with phone calls and email.
Here's a favorite from last Christmas season, from Jim Rich
in Winnabow, North Carolina:
watch and the jewelry
sets today. I was as happy as a hungry tick
on a fat hound with the watch. My wife and daughter will
have grins a mortician couldn't wipe off when they see what
they're getting for Xmas. Thanks for the great service and
excellent products. Merry Christmas to you and yours. God
on by" and pay us a visit!
