    Reading your story on Buck Taylor reminded me of growing up in the 60s and 70s and
    watching Gun Smoke and one of my favorite movies is Tombstone.
    Its good to see him and he captures the west so well in his art.
    I still watch Gun Smoke today.
    Ride On Buck.

    I had called the office and spoke with a person last week in regards to Ron Tollison . I was asking about getting with an editor to write a story about Ron he is a spur and bit maker at shamrock Texas . In the past I’ve read articles about a Billy Klapper and Adolf Bayers. In the Quarter horse journal there was an article about Billy Klapper And was stated by
    J Martin Basinger that When Billy was gone that would be the last of his kind Well it just so happens that Tollison and Billy are best friends and Ron only makes bayers and klapper patterns And are made in a forge the very same as klapper . Tollison has been making bits and spurs for the last 25 yrs and if you put them up beside anything klapper made you can’t hardley tell the difference Some of tollisons work has even fooled billy himself He makes 1 piece spurs hand forged bits Spur buckles just everything hooked to a Cowboy His bits and spurs are used by all the professional s that know him . At the NCHA every year he gets calls for the Klapper 27 some have been used at the finals of the prca calf Ropers Team Ropers Just rearguard Cowboys I just thought for his talent he has never been recognized in any magazine For what he does for the horse world and the working cowboy . And just thought that the Western Horseman would be interested in knowing and would let the horse world know that their are still master craftsmen out there that has first hand knowledge of where it came from And where it’s going and who it’s been passed on to And that is Ron Tollison Shamrock Texas
    Thank you
