He should’ve been a cowboy.
You’ve seen him as the Terminator and a kindergarten cop, but Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new TikTok shows him in what may be his best character yet.
His latest role: A cowboy on a bicycle chasing around a miniature pony to Toby Keith’s “Should’ve Been A Cowboy.”
The 71-year-old threw on his cowboy hat and even fed the horse a carrot. He’s never looked happier—and neither have we.
“Whiskey the mini-pony has a morning fitness routine, too. #likearnold,” he captioned the 15-second video.

How could a video this weird and endearing not go viral on Twitter?
“Arnold Schwarzenegger is living in my personal heaven and i must accept that,” tweeted user @LukeMones.

Schwarzenegger—or, as he’s known on TikTok, @arnoldschnitzel—is fairly new to the platform, with only four videos uploaded, but has already managed to gather over 300,000 followers.
While the pony video showed viewers a kooky, wholesome side of the former California governor, most of his videos are on brand, made better with some excellent musical selections. One video shows him pumping some weights at the gym, enhanced by the Weather Girls singing, “It’s Raining Men” in the background.
In another, he reveals his jet lag cure: Biking around beautiful, sunny Los Angeles.
For fans of the actor and bodybuilder, it’s good to see him up and moving again. Back in August, he had emergency open-heart surgery.
With his videos already gaining so much attention, we’re sure to see more of Schwarzenegger (and hopefully, Whiskey the mini-pony) soon.
