Cowboy Quotes and Sayings - Page 3
With a few years behind me, I know! Cowboys aren’t born. Cowboys are self made men. We are a product of what we choose to be. It isn’t the hat that makes the cowboy. It’s the cowboys that make the hat. You people are describing an image not a way of life. Country boys live in and enjoy the country. Cowboys live on a ranch and make a living out of it. Farmers live on a farm and make a living out of it. That’s why they call it country dancing and not cowboy dancing……so everyone can enjoy.
Don’t drink water down stream from the herd.
Cowgirls lead, cowboys follow.
OK I have to have my 2 cents in this ..Just because you wear boots and hat or if you think you have a southern talk doesn’t make you a cowboy or cowgirl. But if you ride bulls or any other event you should be considered a cowboy or cowgirl. Because in Rodeo not one event is easy or not dangerous. Rodeo was made for cowboys and cowgirls so if you ride then you are one. You sure the heck don’t see city slickers out there riding bulls or horses.And yea cowboys and cowgirls do respect people. But not sit there and say to someone that they ain’t a cowboy or cowgirl AND THEY RIDE.

I don’t have a quote but every one who thinks they are cowgirls or cowboys aren’t you have to be the person working hard for your animals out in a blizzard to be a cowgirl or a cowboy!!

Sorry I don’t have a quote but I was reading all these other quotes on here and about half of them are BS, I’ve been a cowboy my whole life and when I was growing up we said our yes sir/mam and held the door open for women and old cowboys and cowgirls. So when I say that just because you own a pair of boots, spurs, a hat, drive a truck, or just have a horse doesn’t mean your a cowboy. People who walk around saying their cowboys and don’t have anything to back it up with make us real cowboys look bad. Oh and by the way JUST because you ride bulls doesn’t make you a cowboy, not once have I ever been asked “Hey man do you think you could come over some time and break my bull for me”. It’s stupid and you’re not a cowboy.
Anyway that’s just my two cents.
