Big Cowboy

I always thought these were from TJ's country place. TJ's is a local chain. At one time they had many restaurants in Columbus. Sadly, they have closed many, but they still are a great family place to eat and the Barnyard Buster is great for breakfast!

Big Cowboy

This guy used to sit outside the Western Pancake House, just a little ways north of his current location, when I was a kid ('70s).

Cowboy statue.

Giant Cowboy

Giant Cowboy identical to the ones in Grove City. Easy to miss, but visible from 23 (High St.) right before Turkey Hill gas station.
