Cowboy is Alive

This guy rode a horse yes a horse from Hillsdale Michigan to Santa Fe New Mexico. All on a horse yes a horse.

Who else would do a trip like this. Give me the chance I would, but I wouldn't stop till I hit the west coast.

You can read his over the phone interview here.

I think it is amazing that someone during this day and age would do such a thing.

A couple years ago or last year even. Twin Brothers from Ottawa Lake Michigan drove there tractors to the west coast. They did this to raise money for the American Heart foundation. To help research Heart Disease which took there dad from them a few years ago.

The tractors used were two older John Deeres. I think one was a Model B. I will see if I can find that article.
