Ahhh, it’s been a day here at the Prarie and I’m here to tell y’all about it. After wranglin’ and feedin’ the livestock, I saddled up my horse and took off for a lil’ ride around for some ropin’. Let me tell y’all, you can’t get any better than a beautiful scenery of longhorns and wild mustangs under the Texas sun.
On my ride, I came across a pack of coyotes, and I’ll tell y’all it sure was s-c-a-r-r-e-y! I reckon’ they was ’bout to get me, but I jes had to save my skin. So I made up with a lil’ rope of mine and roped one of ’em pups right in, and before too long I had me a whole family of coyotes on a string. To my surprise, they seemed t’ listen to me—like I could understand their language—and before long I had ’em goin’ ’round in circles to the music I was playin’.
Before I could finish me twang, I heard a loud bellow. A bull! And he was comin’ right toward me! I broke out in a cold sweat knowin’ what was comin’ my way. But that’s what I got for bein’ so full of pluck and wanderin’ off. I had one chance, so I gathered me courage and grabbed the bull by one of its horns. I used all my strength to try and hold him steady, but it was no use.
That’s when I heard a voice, ‘Bout time yer here Jack.’ It was my mama, and I had saved her from a bull charging ‘er way a long time ago. I was only a lil’ fella back then, but she still thanked me for what I did. I reckon that’s when I first realized I was capable of doin’ somethin’ impossible, and I wrestled the bull to the ground.
Then, just as I was reunitin’ with mama, I saw the most remarkable thing. I saw the coyotes I’d roped together come runnin’ in from somewhere far away. They were pullin’ a wagon, with four lil’ puppies inside. I knew it was impossible, but I welcomed em’ to the family anyhoo, all nine of ’em.
All’s I can say is that it was sure an extraordinary day at the Prarie. Even if ma and the kiddos don’t believe me when I tell ’em I jest might be able t’ talk to cows, it’s alright. I know the truth and it’s what keeps me goin’. It’s days like this when I know I’ve got somethin’ special. I’m a juggler, an animal whisperer, and a man who can ropin’ his way ’round improb’ble adventures.
So shove off now and don’t forget: if yer ever feelin’ down, tie a knot in a rope and find yer own wild adventure!
