“Needs Some Tweaking”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

This is one of the iconic items of this town but its looking a little sad. Up close it appears to be cover with layers of paint. It needs to be stripped down and spiffed up. And whose idea was it to paint the longhorn heads?

“Ready or not, here I come!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

I'm new to Dodge City, I see this statue daily.
The pose is cool because all the physical elements conspire to hold your interest without causing doubt.
Look at this statue in any weather, and you feel just like the subject.
Ready for anything!

“Interesting, but..”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

not enough information on this at the site. I had to go to the Kansas Heritage place to find out more, and when I did, I found it had an amazing history!
