The spurs were a gift from the paniolo cowboy Masatsu “Masa” Kawamoto. Spurs are the metal device attached to a cowboy’s boots that were used to dig into the horse’s side to encourage it to go faster. Masa has donated two different types of spurs. The first pair of spurs is made out of metal and leather with a piece of wire wrapped around it. The second pair of spurs is made from the traditional Spanish and Mexican style with a spiked metal wheel and a leather strap that fits the metal spur onto the boot.
