Windshield Cowboy

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox suggests that George W. Bush, who carefully nurtures his image as a cowboy, is in fact afraid of horses.

He recalled a meeting in Mexico shortly after both men had been elected when Mr Fox offered Mr Bush a ride on a "big palomino" horse. Mr Fox, who left office in December, recalled Mr Bush "backing away" from the animal.''A horse lover can always tell when others don't share our passion," he said, according to the Washington Post.
Fox calls Bush a "windshield cowboy" who prefers to drive a pickup than ride a horse.
