The Nooseletter
Vol. 4 - No.11 November, 2022 Nooseletter Home SUBMIT AN ARTICLE
Good day everybody. I hope y'all had a wonderful Halloween. I am not a big fan, but I believe many of you are. It has been a rough month for me. I still cannot get rid of the persistent cough (no, it is not covid) and it is wiping my energy reserves; I have not left my house in a month, except to go to the doctor. Anyway, I am getting better.

As I am incapable of sitting still, I have still managed to work on many projects that are important to me, this Nooseletter being among them. I am also working on the Cowboy Channel as much as I can. I have gathered many western movies that are in the public domain, and lots of old movie serials that I will be uploading as well, working on broken websites, uploading images and videos to this website, etc... Please be patient as I have limited energy.

The one article I want to bring to your attention is our Featured Article this month. The Mustang Acres Farm desperately needs your donations. As Reel Cowboys, we need to support organizations such as this one.

The Mustang Acres Farm is Asking for Donations
~Mustang Acres Farm
This is a heartbreaking starvation situation that has FINALLY come to an end yesterday (October 23rd, 2022).

On Sept 30th, the organizer of the Michigan Tip Challenge Cady Jean LaPoint saw a post about a horse being down in a Horse Vet group and recognized the name of the poster as someone who had signed up for the Michigan Tip Challenge. Cady started making calls that weekend to local sheriffs and was getting nowhere with getting someone out there on site immediately.

On October 4th, I was notified about this mustang neglect case in New York for the mustangs that were purchased in Michigan. Being in Michigan, it was brought to my attention, as I have...
Benjamin Rish Milam
~Dakota Livesay
There were many heroes during Texas' fight for independence from Mexico. The story you're about to read is about one of those heroes. But the chances are you've never heard of him.

He was Benjamin Rush Milam. Benjamin Rush Milam was born in 1788 in Frankfort, Kentucky. He served in the War of 1812, and in 1818, along with other Anglos, he went to Texas, and as was necessary for land ownership there, became a Mexican citizen. During this time, Mexico both welcomed...

Cowboy Camping
You can go camping in many ways. You can camp in a tent or a camper, or you might have all the luxuries of glamping in a fancy RV. Cowboy camping is another way to get outside and enjoy the beauty of nature. And no, you do not have to ride a horse or wear a cowboy hat.

It’s fun to explore your options and investigate new ways to camp. Here are a few questions you might have and some answers to help you along the way. Let’s explore cowboy...
Cowboy Superstitions
~American Cowboy
Although they’re generally no-nonsense, rather practical sorts, cowboys, both rodeo and range, can be a pretty superstitious lot.

One of the most grievous cowboy faux pas you can commit is placing your cowboy hat on a bed. At best, putting a hat on a bed is said to invite mischievous bad luck or foretell an argument; at worst, it’s a premonition of injury or death. This superstition has practical roots; back when bathing was a monthly affair...
A Cow Hunter's Court
~Edgar Beecher Bronson (1910)
The death of Shanghai Rhett at Llano, Texas, made another hole in the rapidly thinning ranks of the pioneer Texas cow hunters. Cow-hunting in early days was the industry upon which many of the greatest fortunes of the State were founded, and from it sprang the great cattle ranch industry that between the years 1866 and 1885 converted into gold the rich wild grasses of the tenantless plains and mountains of Texas, New Mexico, Indian Territory, Kansas, Nebraska...

Was Geronimo a Good Leader?
~Candy Moulton
Historical novelist W. Michael Farmer takes on both fact and fiction in his new take on the legendary Apache leader.

Author W. Michael Farmer believes the story lines of his historical novels should adhere to known facts, as such an approach “helps hold the reader’s interest into what happened and helps them ask good questions about the history.” At times that belief has led him to write companion books—a history and a novel—on the same topic. Farmer...
Who Was the Other Woman
~Mark Nothaft
Only in Arizona: Wyatt Earp's common-law wife waited for him in California after the 1881 gunfight. Instead, Earp would spend the rest of his life with with a new love interest. One area of Wyatt Earp's life, possibly overlooked with all the silver mining, cattle rustling and gun fights happening in 1880s Tombstone, is that he was something of a ladies' man.

We usually just remember Earp as the last man standing after the infamous gunfight at the O.K...
Legend of the White Mule
~Legends of the Old West
By 1880, the Bodie mines were producing tons of ore daily, rich in gold and silver. The average depth of a shaft reached between 400’ to 600’ deep. Two shafts, the Standard and the Lent, reached the 1200’ level. The Bodie Mining District was a busy place with 32 mines, 60 miles of tunnel work and over 2000 men busting up the hard rock. There is no doubt that the mule’s role in the mines was extremely important. Without their impressive strength, it would have been next to impossible to move the heavy ore out of the...
