    Doesn't look like much of a mudhole to me :razz:

    Cowboys offensive lineman Leonard Davis went from sinking a birdie putt in Grapevine to saving the life of a horse in Arizona.

    After playing in the annual sponsors' tournament at Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, Davis flew home Wednesday to pick up some personal belongings. When he arrived at his five-acre home in Chandler, Ariz., he noticed a horse stuck in the mud across the street.

    "A horse was waist deep in a sinkhole, and I had to do something," Davis said Wednesday night.

    Davis drove his John Deere tractor across the street with friend Roy Garibaldi, a local talk show host. Davis put some straps on the horse's waist and used the tractor to pull "Ranger" out.

    "He goes from helping his wife to saving a horse's life," said Garibaldi, alluding to Davis' wife, Amanda, who underwent finger surgery. "Here's this big 360-pound NFL player doing something amazing."

    Davis cleaned the horse off with a hose as his neighbors, fire and police department officials looked on.

    "I was just doing what anybody else would have done," Davis said. "I wasn't scared at all. I grew up on a farm pulling cows and horses out of the mud. No big deal

    You know.......i had several funny lines to add to this.....but you know what? This is too good a story to do that. It's nice to hear a player doing something GOOD in this world, instead of getting busted for some crime.
