Cowboy Fred

Cattle control!

Farmer Silo rang in a panic this week – his prize bull had broken loose!
There’s nothing worse than a runaway beast – luckily I had my lasso handy.

As you know I have a hat for every occasion and this cattle conundrum called for something special.
I picked up a rather fetching red and blue stetson while out on a ranching holiday in Texas last year – perfect!

When I got to Farmer Silo’s house the bull was busy trampling his garden.
I opened the gate carefully and stepped inside. The bull took one look at my red had and decided to charge!
Maybe this hat was not such a good idea… I hope I’m not the one seeing stars!

In a split second I reached for my lasso and roped him in.

Those cowboy lessons really paid off!

Yeeeehaaaaa!
