DALLAS –– Big Tex is home. The new statue was unveiled a day early after winds blew off the white sheet hiding him from the public eye Thursday afternoon.

State Fair of Texas officials installed the region’s biggest cowboy at Big Tex Circle in the wee hours of Thursday morning to avoid the inevitable media throng.

Thursday morning, Tex’s silhouette was only visible through a white sheet guarding him for the first time since he was felled by an electrical short in his boot last year.
