Steeds of Renown _______ The Western Quiz

The End of an Era

The Lone Ranger and Tonto

If there’s any one thing that separates the modern Western from Westerns of the past, it’s the loss of Romance.
Nothing illustrates this loss more than the almost non-existent relationship between the modern Western Hero and his Horse/Steed.

It’s sad I tell ya.

WIth that in mind I’d like to pay homage to those lost Days of Yesteryear …
with this quiz:

    Your quiz scored me at zero. Not quite accurate 🙂 But I still love the horses — usually more than their riders.
