This week here in Las Vegas is the National Finals Rodeo. For days on end we see the horse trailers moving on the Strip. Felt cowboy hats are everywhere. These guys like to drink beer and gamble. They love Las Vegas because they can go 24 hours a day. Once back in Wyoming or Montana nighttime comes quick this time of year. The lights never go out in Las Vegas. These cowboys all have a lady on their arm. The ladies are nicely dressed in country-western casual. They will wear knit hat styles to keep the hair-do in shape .Daytime everyone wears roper style shoes, but after 5 PM it's boots only. When the wind comes out of the south we can get a whiff of horse from the corrals 3 miles south at Jackie Gaughn's South Coast Casino. There must be 200 horse stalls and several hundred cowboy horse trailers out back. We're selling these folks all kinds of the new animal head style plush winter hats as family gifts as seen at our site www.thehatco.com. After this week everyone heads back to the ranch to hunker down til spring.
