Cowboy Quotes and Sayings
The “Cowboy hall of fame” does not have any thing to do with cowboys. Them people are rodeo people. A cow boy is a rancher. That tends to cows. And the ranch hands that work with livestock.
My dad who was a cowboy till the day he died had a saying about a few “Wanna be’s” he’d say; ” that boy wouldn’t make a pimple on a cowboy’s butt” and when I was riding a cranky or mule headed horse he’s always say; “Ride him for what he’s worth and you’ll get along fine” and I always knew what he meant and that he was right.
Trust your neighbor.. But brand your cattle.
Growin’ up, lovin’ horses with a real “Old timer” that owned 13 riding stables and 2 slaughter houses and taught me that.

I agree with Todd and everyone else who knows what a true cowboy is. They work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks out of the year. Real cowboys are out there in the dead of night and in the middle of winter making sure their cattle are alive and safe. They only treat themselves when they have done what needed to get done, paid what they needed to get paid, and most do a of that with one paycheck per year. Cowboys aren’t people wearing a cowboy hat, spurs, chaps, and ride horses for fun. Cowboys are men who work every day doing tasks that are demanding, and they don’t complain. They live life the way they want to and enjoy what it gives them no matter how hard the life is.
If it ain’t broke don’t go to trying to fix it.
