Christmas for Cowboys

Handsome's new chapsCowboys can never have enough gear, as a rule, and Handsome here is no exception. And, what they do have wears out pretty quickly, so there is a never-ending list of gifts to give a cowboy. Never do I struggle with what to buy him for Christmas, birthday or Father’s Day.

With winter and cold weather coming, I decided to have a pair of shotgun chaps made for him. He’s pretty picky when it comes to this kind of thing, so I had to get all the details just right. The straps had to be a certain thickness, the zippers had to be heavy-duty enough, the fringe just so.

They came out great, and I have to confess, there is no greater eye-candy than a cowboy in his chaps!


They’ll keep him warm when he’s riding on damp, foggy days, protect his legs from sticks that like to impale you as you ride through the trees and will be great when he’s branding so he’s not kneeling in the mud and muck.

Stay tuned for action pics!



  1. What a great and thoughtful not to mention useful gift for a cowboy! My husband is not a cowboy but he is a hunter so I completely understand when you say that you don’t struggle with what to buy him!

    I find the choices a little overwhelming at times but being a hunter means you need lot’s of things lol. This year he is taking up bow hunting also, so now my list is a little bit longer. I don’t mind though …makes it that much easier.

    However, there are some things I have to get really detailed on because he is a little on the picky side and likes things just right!!

    I enjoy reading your post. Like the chaps..when will you post more pics?

    What does he gift you with?

      Hmmm, he’s not much for gifting, but he tries. If his wallet was as big as his heart, it would be easier for him.
