Displaced Cowboy Builds Himself A Rideable Electric Horse

August 31, 2018

This is a video highlighting Steve Bacque (aka the Crazy Cranford Cowboy), a former Texas rodeo cowboy who married a lady from New Jersey, moved there, and had no place to keep a horse in the area. So what did he do? Built a reigns-controlled one powered by an electric golf cart motor and named it Charger. Man, sometimes I wish I was a crazy person.

Charger can do up to 40 miles per hour (though he has a governor to rein him in to about 15 miles per hour) and can handle up to 600 pounds. Charger even has a wheelie bar in the back, which is "not just for show," Bacque warns. Yes, this motorized horse can pop a (small) wheelie.

Charger turns left and right with the reins and even brakes when you pull back on them. A key turns him on, and a gas pedal sets him in motion.

Why would you govern your horse to only 15MPH? CHARGER NEEDS TO RUN. Sure Steve would probably die in an electric horse related accident, but isn't that every cowboy's dream? "I thought cowboys wanted to die with their boots off." Really? I thought they wanted to die with them on. Regardless, I want to die with nothing on but a smile and a jetpack.

Keep going for the video of oldschool Westworld.

Thanks to Dev, for inspiring me to watch Tombstone tonight.

    Turn it into a lawn mower and kill two birds as the saying goes…

    "overcome disabilities and challenges..."

    So he has Downs syndrome? Or what?

    Also "he's the hero we didn't know we needed". What? He's not the hero we deserve. Or need. Or really want for that matter. Is he even a hero? I guess. I'll let him have that.

    Yeah, it has to be Down syndrome! What a sweetheart!=) I love this story.

    Why would anybody move to New Jersey? It's a fine enough state to visit and maybe even live in, but they are the Land of Taxes and they revel in it.

    I say we do a GoFund Me account for a BULL...then he can step up his game when he's ready (everyone needs a goal).

    We can even name the Bull ... "McBull Beefy Balls"

  • Meh

    "Displaced", sure you could word it like that.

    Well he's married. So you have to get the wife to sign off.
