Cowboy Joe Mascot

Department of Animal Science

Cowboy Joe V

Fans of the University of Wyoming Cowboy football enjoy watching Cowboy Joe V, a fifth generation Wyoming mascot, as the pony trots around War Memorial Stadium after each Cowboy score.
Cowboy Joe is a tradition which started in 1950 when the Farthing Family of Cheyenne made a generous donation of a young pony to become Wyoming's mascot. Cowboy Joe also represents UW in parades around the region, appears in Tailgate Park on football game days and leads the band and team in the pre-game Cowboy Walk. This beautiful little pony is very popular with Wyoming fans of all ages. Cowboy Joe's handlers are students in UW's College of Agriculture.C

Cowboy Joe is looking for a few new handlers who want to be a part of an exciting and fun UW tradition!

Joe is the mascot for the University of Wyoming and has been for the last 66 years. He travels around the state, home football games, several parades and other university and community events year round. Handlers are responsible for escorting Joe to all events and caring for the pony.

 

Applications are due October 26th to Anne Leonard at AGRDean@uwyo.edu

For questions contact the Head Handler, Taryn Chapman, tchapma5@uwyo.edu
