BOBBY THE COWBOY
Yes," said the farmer. " Thanks to Cowboy Bobby! That was a wonderful throw of yours, Bobby! You're a real cowboy! "
All the children stared at Bobby in wonder. So Bobby had been right—his lassoing had come in useful after all! What a good thing he hadn't given it up when they had laughed at him!
" Bobby, you can ride my pony Ladybird whenever you like," said Farmer Straws. " If you want to be a cowboy, you shall! "
" Hurrah! " yelled Bobby, and he ran to find Ladybird at once. My goodness, he was soon galloping round the field, for all the world like a real live cowboy!
But the next day was better still, for Mrs. Straws went to town and bought a prQper cowboy set—shaggy trousers, leather belt, red shirt, and cowboy hat.
Don't be afraid if you hear a wild shout from Farmer Straws' field when you go near! You will see a fierce cowboy galloping on a pony, his lasso whirling through the air, the pony's hoofs thundering on the grass. It's only Bobby—but he looks like a real cowboy now!
Shaggy trousers, leather belt and hat.
