My hero loves old Westerns and my grandson discovered them. Now he thinks he's a cowboy. He wore his snow boots to preschool for weeks telling everyone they were his cowboy boots. It's June. Yep. His grandparents (that would be us) finally took pity on him, (or were just embarrassed enough about the snow boots in June) and went out and bought him some cowboy boots.
Now he's certain he's a cowboy, stick horse and all.
