It is a smile that comes from your heart and a howdy that comes from your deeds. A rodeo ride isn’t a prerequisite nor is it a requirement to be a cowboy.

I wear my boots, I dip an smoke, I ride an drive a truck, I take my hat off when I eat, I say grace, I tip my hat to women, and I don’t spit, cuss,er fight in front of a woman. But before I spend money on my truck er tobacco, er treat myself on sometin, ima work till I can’t work no more, treat my woman with the respect an love she deserves, tend to my animals, make sure the bills is paid, an give thanks to the Good Lord. THEN I might indulge in a little selfishness… All these comments bout “boots, spurs, cowboy hats make the cowboy” an such, well that ain’t nothin but talk. Till you learn to ride an die a good man, take care of yer kin, help yer neighbors and strangers, an still have enough in ya to be wild and free, then you ain’t got no room to talk.
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.

There are cowboys and cowgirls out there who aren’t in the rodeo business like ranchers and farmers. You don’t have to rodeo to be a cowboy.

After all, the true cowboys from the past never participated in a rodeo.
A true cowboy knows love, pain, and shame but never cares about fame.
