Ty Murray and Jewel’s Son Wants to Be ‘All Cowboy’d Up’

Ever since he became a father, Ty Murray has been telling PEOPLE that he doesn’t want son Kase Townes to one day follow in his dangerous footsteps as a professional bull rider.

Now 3 years old, Kase appears to have his own opinion on the matter — at least when it comes to the attire involved.

“This morning, Kase’s mom put a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt on him and he said to me, ‘Daddy, let’s get all cowboy’d up,’ ” Murray tells PEOPLE with a laugh.

“I don’t know where he comes up with this stuff! I’ve never pushed being a cowboy at all. I don’t even know where he came up with that word.”

“Whatever suits him. It’s awesome,” says Murray. “He likes being with his mom and dad and he doesn’t care what we’re doing.”

True to form, last week at the family’s home in Telluride, Colo., Kase took his first ski lesson while his parents looked on.
