Except for the two terms he was sheriff of King County, Texas, Cotton Elliott has been a spur maker and cowboy all his life. Born to parents who worked for the historic Waggoner Ranch in Seymour, Elliott grew up on the ranch and has worked on some of the largest and most historic ranches in Texas and New Mexico. He knows cowboying and says “custom-made spurs and a nice bit are something all cowboys want.”
Mentored by spur maker Melton McCowan in Clarendon, Texas, Elliott recognizes that the old spur makers were blacksmiths first. His one-piece forged spurs are made in the Adolph Beyers tradition. Elliott owns Elliott Bits and Spurs in Quitaque, Texas, and takes pride in forging his spurs like the old spur makers.
