Two-year-old is all cowboy

EUGENE, Ore. -- He's only two-years-old and not even potty trained, but Marcus Marriott is all cowboy.

The boy just turned two and he can already rope a calf like the big boys.

His mom says her little one picked up a rope before he could walk and started working his magic.

Amanda Marriott says Marcus started "roping" with his teething ring and shoe strings when he was 10-months old and that all he wants to do is rope.

"He's been roping with this teething ring and shoe strings and stuff since he was about ten months, and then he's been just doing it ever since. He loves it. He wants to rope all the time, and that's just what he does, all the time," Amanda says.

Marcus has a small toy calf at home that he practices with. His mom says her son spends a lot of time around rodeos so she's really not surprised that he's picked up roping.
