Sheriff, get that cowboy!
Texas Cowboys fan Michael Duncan and his horse Sheriff detoured out the tailgate to trot through Walmart and buy Sheriff a bucket so he could drink water, too.
Just like the fans are thirsty for a rare team victory, Sheriff was thirsty for a big blue bucket of water. That’s why Duncan got excited through Walmart to the delight of grocery shoppers and the Internet.
“I can’t believe I had to leave the tailgate to buy Sheriff Duncan a new bucket at Walmart for some water!!” Duncan, who was wearing a Dak Prescott T-shirt over his horse, wrote on Instagram.
It would be hard to tell if the horse or its owner is more of a Dallas fan, as the animal was adorned with blue stripes through its mane, a blue tail, and a furry blue unicorn horn.
The gentle horse trotted leisurely into the Walmart, stopping in the lobby for Duncan to ask, ‘Can you come in here?’ An employee did not answer and they continued their tour of the store in search of a five-gallon bucket.
‘Is it okay if I come with me to get the bucket?’
The security doors then open and Sheriff begins his journey to stardom and hallway A14.
The Dallas Cowboys ultimately won 20-17 on Sunday.
Cowboys fan Michael Duncan of Texas, pictured on his horse Sheriff, trotted through Walmart straight from the back door. The horse had a blue tail, with blue streaked hair and a unicorn horn.
They went to the store to buy a five-gallon blue bucket to fill with water for the Sheriff to drink. Employees along the way helped his horse and rider find the item.
Several people stopped them along the way, including an officer, who let them pass. Many filmed like Duncan asked, ‘Don’t you see unicorns here every day?’
Several people filmed as Duncan made his way to the checkout to buy the bucket for just over $4, never once dismounting from his stable horse.
‘No way!’ someone yells excitedly when he sees the Sheriff. At one point, several employees in blue vests gather to pet the horse and help Duncan pick up a blue bucket for water.
The stunned children dropped their jaws to the ground as he passed, Duncan jokingly asked, ‘Don’t you see unicorns 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.

However, social media users got in on the fun.
TikTok user Maria Chisoldado wrote: ‘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’.

‘You can’t sum up Texas in a video. The video,’ wrote another.
“This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen and I live in Texas,” Lupita P. Hernandez wrote on the popular app.
The sheriff broke a sweat before his Walmart adventure. He wouldn’t be a true fan if he didn’t attend the game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
The brightly colored horse was left in the parking lot outside the stadium for fans to enjoy a ride, including Cowboys player Zeke Elliot’s father Stacy.

‘Never in my life did I think I’d be riding a horse @attstadium before an NFL FOOTBALL GAME! I’m going to tell my grandchildren that THE @ambasdor_elliott was a REAL COWBOY!!!’ wrote the proud father.
Dallas fans Abby Kelleher and Steven Cruz also posted a photo of themselves and Sheriff outside the stadium on their Instagram.
The bailiff seems to make his rounds at all the hot stops as the steed’s Instagram and TikTok are filled with various pub crawls and restaurant stops.
