Vaqueros, otherwise known as buckaroos, worked the range in eastern Oregon for many years. The spurs and ring bit pictured were handcrafted by a silversmith in Mexico, circa 1750.
These pieces are on display in the small museum located at the Pete French Round Barn. It’s a great place to visit from an historic and architectural perspective. The barn is one of my favorite local attractions.

The barn is gorgeous. Unique. Thanks for the link to your previous post about it. So glad it’s been restored and preserved.
Glad you liked the round barn! It’s a special place.
Very cool piece of history Siobhan. Hope the fires are finally calmed and the air is clearing. Be safe
Thanks! Less smoky the last couple days. Yay!
