    COWBOY CLEANS HIS HORSE'S SHOES - ca. 1890. This is a nice un-mounted silver-nitrate print that measures 6.5"x 4.5" and features a Cowboy with full gear on helping his horse with the front shoe. The Cowboy has a Colt single action Army in his holster, and fine chaps with fringe and conchos. There are 30-30 caliber rifle bullets in his gun belt and a rifle in the scabbard on his horse. Very good contrast and tonality, and overall condition; on the reverse in pencil is written, "this set is for Hesper (not readable)." A good cowboy image.
