Happy Trails by Dale Evans Rogers
Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.

Craft: Use Cool Cows Craft Template: http://www.thebestkidsbooksite.com/printcraft.cfm?CraftID=106

I did not use the legs on my cow because I used wooden clothespins to clip to the cow and put cowboy boots and spurs on them. I used googly eyes and yarn that was braided for the tail. I also grabbed CowParade Houston from the adult section and gave the kids some ideas about how they could decorate their cows.
Other
I precut the cows, boots, cowboy hats (optional), spurs. The braiding of the tail is also optional.
