Hoot was a real cowboy. Wikipedia says: "In 1912 he won the all-around championship at the famous Pendleton Round-Up in Pendleton, Oregon and the steer roping World Championship at the Calgary Stampede." This photo must be from his later years, after he ran through his fortune on wine, women, and song. Too much singing will get you every time.

Regards,

Hoot and Ben Johnson were the real deal.
