When Dr. Jeffrey Menn retired after three decades as a pediatrician and emergency room doctor, he decided to go out with his spurs on. To celebrate his last day of work at the Vernon Memorial Hospital in Viroqua, Wisconsin he went for a short horseback ride through the building.

According to the La Crosse Tribune, Menn is, “known as “the Cowboy Doctor” for his distinctive western-style dress, his ranching lifestyle and his love of all things cowboy (he was a founder of Viroqua’s Wild West Days)”

Menn finished his ride in front of the hospital where he was greeted with a champagne toast from colleagues and a lot of questions from a group of fascinated children. Full Story here.
