A footbacker might say, That horse bucked Shorty off in a cactus patch. The same yarn spun by a Mountain Cowboy would paint a picture so vividly you could see it: That old cayuse gave a wiggle like his skirt was tight and erupted like a diamondback on a red-ant den. He did a belly roll and made nine tracks on the moon afore he launched Shorty forked-end-up into a cholla-garden a lizard couldn’t navigate his way through. Herein you’ll find a little history and stories of the old Tonto Cowboys, written in their own lingo.
