I want to be a cowboy, like him, when I grow up.

What a great news story. After months of corona virus, economic ruin, social distancing, isolation, it's nice to see a simple story about a guy on a horse (with his dogs) coming to the rescue of somebody who got her bike stolen. No shooting, no yelling. Do you have a badge? No, I don't need a badge!

Like Joe also an Oregonian and loved this story. I won a prize on Cycle Oregon one time for throwing a lasso around a stationary fake steer. Learned a bit of that as a child from my brother or dad. Haven't tried it on bike thieves.

We did corner and "corral" a runaway horse one time with a racing team out for winter/spring training. Our resident sprint champion (competed world wide) cornered the horse by using his bike like a cutting quarterhorse. We called the local county sheriff dept and left the horse in the befuddled hands of the woman sheriff trooper. One of my favorite true stories from days of yore.
