FORT WORTH, Texas -- Huckabee tried his hand at roping cattle Friday, but didn't get very far.
With two bails of hay with cow heads taking the place of the real thing, Huckabee received a quick lesson at the Fort Yards Stockyard and then had a try. He seemed to have an issue snapping his wrist, although he was better at the lassooing.
As he tried unsuccessfully, he put things in perspective.
"Ok, you're laughing at me," he said. "You think John McCain could do this better."
His wife, Janet, took aim at the other bail of hay, and lassoed the cow the first time. The governor never got it right.
