This week it's a Spirit of the West Christmas special with a saddlebag full of the kind of Christmas music you don't get to hear anywhere else, songs about Christmas on the range. You'll hear some classic Christmas Cowboy Poetry and some of the best work of men and women of the west. The show closes with a wonderful story of a cowboy and a broncy horse and how they made one Christmas very special for a ranching family.

This week on the Spirit of the West Radio program
Hugh & long time neighbour Ken had just gathered a nice bunch of cattle for sorting and shipping. Cody, Hugh's good mare did a great job sorting in close quarters, but somehow Hugh's leg, boots, saddle, and Cody's side had to undergo a thorough cleaning after a cow left a big deposit. You can see close up on Hugh's Facebook page.

The guy known as America's Most Trusted Horseman John Lyons returns this week with special memories of his famous horse "Bright Zip". You'll hear a long lost classic song of the west and the story behind it along with several songs that will keep running through your mind for days to come. Baxter Black looks at an urban rural conflict and the Rangeland news has information you can use.
