Horse country – Jura, Switzerland

There is a wild west theme throughout the Jura that I find amusing. Yet, there are times I wonder if I am not truly living in the west rather than Switzerland.

We were almost to our village when we were passed by a man riding a horse. My six year old started giggling.

She asked me with a huge smile across her face, “Did you see that man on that horse? He looks like he is a cowboy in a movie.”

I glanced back to get a better look.

It was true.

He had on jeans with a button down plaid shirt.
He had on a black cowboy hat and boots.
If that wasn’t enough cowboy for us…
He held a long blade of grass in one hand that was hanging out of his mouth as he chewed on it.

“Yee Haw Cowboy.”, I whispered to my daughter so as the real cowboy that had ridden by couldn’t hear.

Very loudly.

She yelled, “YEE HAW COWBOY!”

Our cowboy turned and grinned at her.
I should have known better than to have said anything at all.

You can thank her for my not taking a photo of the cowboy.  ;)
