Baxter Black
Baxter Black can shoe a horse, string a barbed wire fence and bang out a Bob Wills classic on his flat top guitar. A cowboy poet and former large animal veterinarian, Baxter was raised in New Mexico and spent most of his workin' life in the mountain west tormenting cows. Black now lives in Arizona and travels the country tormenting cowboys.
