Nice tooling.
Thank you.
You're welcome. I like that it works as Día de Muertos and also Deadhead attire.
Your maker's mark is more prominent than I would normally approve of, but perhaps there's a reason for that on this pair. Were they made on commission?

Why are all your heals proud? Does that aid in taking them off?
I make everything to order. I usually leave a little bigger rand at the top of the heel, I think most cowboy boots do. I think it helps to keep the heel counter from wearing, like when you're driving. A wide rand like on the red topped pair is usually called a spur shelf, cowboys like 'em.

Really nice work, Tuco. If I rode western, I might be interested.

In my life, I have approximately the same level of need for cowboy boots as I do for a breast pump or for a Hungarian - Urdu dictionary.

Yet after seeing those pictures, I find myself casting about for any reason whatsoever to justify the purchase of a pair of cowboy boots. Those things you made are fucking glorious, Tuco.

Those really are amazing, Tuco. How do you actually make them, though? By which I mean -- for things like the butterfly boots, is it a thing where you buy blue, red and yellow leather, cut them into pieces and then stitch them together, or is that one piece of leather which you carved and colored? Do you plan/design them yourself, or is it a thing where you buy patterns (similar to what home sewers use to make clothes), or a mixture of both?

I start with a lot of measurements of the foot, then build a last to fit. Gotta fit every bump and lump. Then I'll make a pattern based on these measurements. After that, I'll sharpen a pencil and draw for a while. For things like the butterfly boots, they are different pieces of leather cut and sewn together. The ones with the skulls and vines are carved and dyed.

In my lifelong quest to become a better horseman, I once traded out some horseshoeing for dressage lessons. Some of those biddies did not approve of the feller with the big hat and red boots with the dead man's hand and dice inlaid into the tops and floppy batwing chaps.

Learned a lot, though.

Haha that's great. Yah there is a Western vs English divide among horsey type folk to be sure. I get freaked out when I see leg position of western riders with legs way out front or flying up and down.

It's only the really snooty or stupid that trash the other style of riding. There is a growing appreciation on both sides of what the other style is all about.

Then there is this:



In my opinion, the western rider rode dressage better than the dressage rider rode western.

I'd someday like to own a macbook pro charger that lasts longer than a year before crapping out.

This is crazy 1% bullshit but it really bugs me that the ballet puts me, as a single-seat subscriber this year, amid a mass of one-off fucksticks. The opera has the sense to pair me with another single-seat subscriber.

Also this shit is already four minutes late.

I went to the ophthalmologist this morning (routine follow-up) and received the dilation drops.

My eyes are slowly returning to normal.
