Equus Caballus

This song reminds me of what the horse has done, will do, and is willing to put up with from us. From the guy my grandfather told about that had power over their mind to a small child that gets exited when they see one to the old cowboy that has sat on one every day of their life, the horse is really a gift to us all.

The Gift (Charlie Russell)

This is the way history has been passed along for thousands of years, in song.  The life of Ol’ Charlie Russell.  Ian Tyson has a way of writing some lines that only someone that is savvy on the deal would understand.  “The twisted wrist of the hullihan throw,” is one of those great lines.

I recommend reading Trails Plowed Under a book written by Charlie Russell and listening to Ian Tyson music while reading it.  You will be experiencing two of the best at bringing the cowboy to you in an authentic way.
