I’m going to try something new on Mondays. Who doesn’t want to start the work week off with a little yeeehawwww?
Let’s talk about this cowboy’s ummmm…boots.
Where did the cowboy boot come from? We’d like to believe the cowboy boots originated with the American cowboy, but the fact is, cowboy boots didn’t come from the US. They didn’t have anything to do with guitars and western skies or Texas.
Actually, the cowboy boot comes from…
THE HUNS. As in Atilla the Hun. History points to the Huns as being the first horsemen to use stirrups, and thus the pointy toes and heels of their boots were constructed to work better with stirrups.
I mean, can you believe this crap? Cowboy boots in the steppes of central Asia? Well, no matter where they originated, we still love them, and the men who wear them. Right, ladies?
Thanks for reading, and check in next Monday for more Yeehaw!
