This guy has seen better days and could use a little maintenance, but he's a friendly looking sort and we enjoyed stopping by for photos. There were some cows behind him keeping him company as he looks a little lonely at the end of the dusty road.

The statue was a little tucked away a and the roads were not clearly marked but it wasn't too much of a hassle to find it.
