Adopt A Buffalo, Adopt A Cowboy, But Please Adopt!

Revitalize  Comanche continues to work to set the stage for recreating itself as a Heritage Tourism Destination, and today it’s buffalo, a lone warrior, and mounted cowboys in the sites of the very, very proactive group.  As usual, the group is working its fingers right down to those old proverbial bones, trying to raise the funding for what is going to add an outstanding look to the town.

Abel Ioya, Weston Conine, and Martin Herrera were our recon guys. They scouted the town for the best location for our first two shaggy friends.

The first site chosen by the boys is the landscaped area near the Stripes store. Mayor Ronnie Clifton and City Administrator Rob Evans checked it out and agreed that it is the perfect site for two of the large beasts (at least to start with!) and a lone warrior.

Do they look like Buffalo Cutters to you? They do to me!

So, the students went to work, searching for patterns.

This is one of the thoughts.

I can't tell you that this is the exact pattern the students will use, but it will be something like this one.

After the first two buffalo and lone warrior are placed, students will be ready to bring some mounted cowboys down one of our city hillsides. If you or your group would like to adopt a cowboy, we will probably need 6-8 of them as they make their way into the town of Comanche.  On the base of each will be a plate that tells who purchased the cowboy or the buffalo.

And that is all I am going to tell you today, but believe me, there is more…MUCH MORE!! If you are interested in adopting, contact fredda@texansunited.com for details. The price for a bull is $300.00 and for a cow, the cost is $200.00.  Mounted cowboys are $278.00.

Eventually, we will have a need for mounted warriors, and we will get you those prices at that time. I believe they are going to be $300.00.
