Going to be a sharp bull wagon when you get thru, beautiful place, horse, and country, looks like it could be up around Raton. I've seen the movie several times, love it.

THANKS' FOR ALL THE KIND REMARKS. I have always been one of those folks that had to take someone else's junk and rebuild it,to suit my needs,rather than buy it new.seems to be less and less value in that way of thinking with this new breed these days,hopefully with the worsening economy,these lessons can be retaught,sure beats a visit from the repo man? "O" we are down here in southern NM out side of las cruces,our loggin camp is in cloudcroft nm.I know all of you have seen whats go'in on with the border issue,trust me living only 30 miles off the boder,its ten times worse than anything you have seen or heard.!!
