Fox needles Bush over horse jitters

Sept. 22, 2007 at 3:13 PM

WASHINGTON, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- President Bush may know his way around an oil well, but, his Texas cred apparently doesn’t extend to horses.

The new book by former Mexican President Vicente Fox states that Bush is actually afraid of horses and referred to him as a “windshield cowboy,” a rancher who prefers to work his spread from behind the wheel of a pickup truck.

The Washington Post said Fox wrote that the Yale-educated Bush quickly backed away from a robust palomino during a visit to Mexico.

“'A horse lover can always tell when others don't share our passion," Fox stated.
