    All my condolences to the Campbell Family. Happy was a true western icon. His passion for the Cowboy way of life lives on with a wonderful family and the many friends he inspired throughout his lifetime. Many a good cowboy was mounted on a good 07 horse. Happy had a good eye for horses and was one of the very best rawhide braiders. His work was an art. I always wanted to get a bosal from him, they were hard to come by. His memory will live on with all of those he was acquainted with.
