Add this to the list of things I love about living in Texas:
When I first moved to Texas I thought it was just marketing that the police and the sheriff have mounted patrols. I mean, I know they have mounted patrols in NY and other cities for crowd control, but the mounted patrols in Fort Worth are actually cowboys! Case in point:
This weekend I had to call 911 on my cell phone. I was driving to my mother-in-law's house and there were cows on the interstate. Their fence had gotten loose or fallen down, I guess. Anyway, I call 911 and say, "I'm driving on Interstate 20 and we've got cows walking out in traffic."
The dispatcher says, "No problem, sir. We'll get the sheriff's team out to round em up."
I LOVE TEXAS!
