Mommas, it's okay to let your babies grow up to be cowboys. Especially if they're cowboys like Robert Borba from Eagle Point, Oregon. 

The 28-year old made headlines this summer after he came to the rescue in a Walmart parking lot in his hometown. Just like a scene out of a good western movie, Borba rode his horse to town for some dog food. As he was leaving Walmart he heard a woman screaming that her bike had been stolen. 

“’Stop him! Stop him! He stole my bike! He stole my bike!’ And I kind of look around and all of a sudden this guy goes whizzing by me on a bicycle,” Robert told CBS News.

Securities cameras show the thief speeding off on the bike...with a cowboy-laden horse not far behind. 

“A couple swings and then I threw it at him, just like I would a steer,” Robert said. 

“He’s like, ‘What are you doing, man? You got a badge?’ And I’m like, ‘No, I ain’t got a badge,’” he said.

After Robert had stopped the thief he made a call to 911 saying, “We got a guy who just stole a bike here at Walmart. I got him roped and tied to a tree,” he said on the call.

“What!?” the shocked operator said.

“I got him roped from a horse and he’s tied to a tree.”

Authorities arrived within moments to find the roped suspect on the ground at the feet of Robert and his horse. 

When all was said and done, the humble cowboy simply asked for his rope back then tipped his hat to the small crowd as he rode off. 

Kudos to Robert Borba for showing us that true gentlemen and cowboys still exist.
