Sheriff, take that cowboy!
Texas Cowboys fan Michael Duncan and his horse Sheriff took a detour from the tailgate to trot through Walmart to get the Sheriff a bucket so he could suck — on the water, too.
Just as fans thirst for a rare win from the team, Sheriff ran out of a big blue bucket of water. That’s why Duncan swooned through Walmart to the delight of grocers and the Internet.
‘I can’t believe I had to leave the tailgate to get a new bucket at Walmart for Sheriff Duncan some water!!’ Duncan, wearing a Dak Prescott jersey on his horse, wrote on Instagram.
It’s hard to tell if the horse or its owner is a bigger Dallas fan, as the animal was decked out in blue stripes through its mane, a blue tail and a blue fuzzy unicorn horn.
The gentle horse trotted calmly into Walmart, stopping in the vestibule for Duncan to ask, ‘Can he come in here?’ An employee did not answer and they continued their journey through the store in search of a five gallon bucket.
“Are you okay with him coming with me to get the bucket?”
The security gates then open and the sheriff begins his journey to stardom and corridor A14.
The Dallas Cowboys eventually won 20-17 on Sunday.

They went into the store to buy a five-gallon blue bucket to fill with water for the sheriff to drink. Employees along the way helped the horse and his rider find the object
Several people stopped them along the way, including an officer, who let them pass. Many filmed as Duncan asked: ‘Don’t you see unicorns in here every day?’
Several people filmed Duncan going to the register to buy the bucket for just over $4, never once dismounting from his steady horse
“No way!” someone yells excitedly when they see Sheriff. At one point, several employees in blue vests gather to pet the horse and help Duncan fetch a blue bucket of water.
Stunned children left their jaws on the floor as he walked past, Duncan jokingly asked: ‘Don’t you see unicorns in here every day?’
At one point, a police officer at the store stops Duncan and the Sheriff, but ultimately lets the duo continue on their way.

Various videos of the encounter started surfacing on social media, with even the Dallas Cowboys’ official TikTok posting a video of him asking TikTok users to ‘do your thing! Help us find this cowboy!’

Users quickly identified the Texan and his traveling horse. The Cowboys have yet to make an official statement about the quick find.
But social media users got in on the fun nonetheless.
TikTok user Maria Chisoldado wrote: ‘It’s okay. It’s a service animal’.
Another user joked that “it’s true, we don’t know how to act when the Cowboys win.”
Many commented that these things happen ‘only in Texas’.
“This is how we are Texas,” wrote user DayCee.
‘You can’t sum up Texas in one video. The video,’ wrote another.
“This is the craziest thing I’ve seen and I live in Texas,” Lupita P. Hernandez wrote on the popular app.
The sheriff worked up a sweat before his Walmart adventure. He wouldn’t be a true fan if he didn’t actually attend the game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
The brightly colored horse hung out in the parking lot outside the stadium for fans to take a ride on, including Cowboys player Zeke Elliot’s father Stacy.

‘Never in my life did I think I’d be riding a @attstadium on horses before an NFL football game!!! I will tell my grandchildren that THE @ambasdor_elliott was a REAL Cowboy!!!’ wrote the proud father.
Dallas fans Abby Kelleher and Steven Cruz also posted on their Instagram a photo of her and the sheriff outside the stadium.
The sheriff seems to be rounding up all the hot stops around the time, as the horse’s Instagram and TikTok are filled with various bar crawls and restaurant stops.
