    Same here and just what I needed after the week I had. The picture makes it even better because you can actually see the lasso rope going from the man on the horse to around the thief's ankle.

    Funny FB comments. I like the one about Oregon being an open lasso carry state.

    I love this story. It's a great reminder of what America can be and there still are a lot of good, decent human beings around.

    I like the way the NY Post told the story with a little Wild West twist.

    The varmint tumbled to the ground and was dragged to the end of the parking lot, where he grabbed a tree and tried to break free.
    Undaunted, Borba and his bronco held on tight — leaving the suspect stunned by the Wild West corral.
    “Do you have a badge to do this?” the man asked.

    Hi. Can anyone answer why the man was on horseback with a rope in a WalMart parking lot that day? I read the article and I guess I missed it.

    Never rode a horse to Wal-Mart, but long ago in a galaxy far away used to ride through a Dairy Queen drive-up.

    Mamas, please let your babies grow up to be this kind of cowboy!!!
