REBUILT RT FRAZIER RANCH SADDLE Pat from North Dakota This handsome saddle was Pat's Grandfather's and carries a date mark of 1887.Pat has resurrected this saddle from poor condition to gorgeous, having the saddle almost completely rebuilt.( the same area the recent search for El Chapo Guzman went on).Two years older than his brother Javier Torres Felix "El JT", "El Ondeado" never set foot in prison as opposed to "El JT".The make-over included straigtening and re-rawhiding the tree and replacing the leather, using the patterns from the old leather.Pat finished it off with a nickel horn, brass conchos and ox bow stirrups.The story of the early beginnings of this great railroad project is the story of the West, the saga of individual initiative and courage that spanned a nation with bands of iron rail and nurtured the development of today's western empire.Construction of the rail highway for the Iron Horse from the Pacific Coast to the Missouri River was one of man's greatest accomplishments.
Javier was arrested two more times: in California in 1992 and in Cancun in 1994.
Javier was extradited to the United States in 2006 and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
On the 13th of March 2013 he left prison and was deported back to Mexico, where he was re-apprehended and now is in prison.
