Cowboy statue needs to mosey along

A towering but tattered cowboy landmark in the Texas Panhandle could be forced to mosey along.

The 47-foot-tall Tex Randall statue in Canyon, Texas, might lose its home because a potential out-of-state buyer reportedly wants the property where the four-ton artwork stands -- but not the statue on it.

Tex was erected in 1959 to promote a Western store.

It features a broadly smiling, cowboy hat-wearing fellow with one arm on his leg and the other on his hip.

The owner and the Canyon Chamber of Commerce are hoping some nonprofit organization will save Tex Randall.
