Cowboy Quotes and Sayings
If ya don’t know a where’s you’re a goin, it’d be a good idea not to use yer spurs.
Alright this is ridiculous to answer to all the buckle bunnies and saddle clubers being a cowboy has nothing to do with the horse you ride, boots or hat you wear, or quote you stole off the internet. Being a cowboy is not what you do, it’s who you are. It’s a state of mind. Now you get this state of mind not from rodeo’in or riding your horse on a trail ride. It from breaking ice off the water tanks when it’s 20 below, Checking the herd at 2 am to keep the calves from freezing. Pulling calves in the middle of the night. Checking the creek to make sure you didn’t miss any. Feeding the horses on Christmas morning before sitting down to open gifts. You can’t be a cowboy without putting in the time. Yes most cowboys are gentlemen, but if you really think about the history of cowboys from the cattle drives, they weren’t all that great to be around. And to sum it up, y’all watch too much TV. Cause that’s the cowboys you dreaming about not the real deal.
You can take the boy out of country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy.
An Old Blessing
May your stomach never grumble.
May your heart never ache.
May your horse never stumble.
May your cinch never break.
You shouldn’t touch another man’s woman nor should you touch another man’s hat.
Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction.
– Cowboy Saying
Once my momma asked my grandpa how to train her horse to pull a cart. Grandpa laughed and answered “Hook ‘em up and head ‘em east.”
Spurs, Chaps, and a Cowboy Hat. That’s all it takes to make a country girl smile.:)
