Cowboy Quotes and Sayings
Asking to borrow someones saddle is like asking to borrow someone’s girlfriend, you just don’t do that.
Letting the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back.
– Will Rogers
Cowboys and men are two totally different breeds.
Whoever said a horse was dumb, was dumb.
A cowboy is not boots, spurs, hat or a love for John Wayne. It is who you are inside. It is how you treat those around you. It is giving of yourself before you give to yourself. 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. It isn’t being able to quote Lonesome Dove or talking about the time you saw Garth Brooks in concert. A cowboy has an aura like no one else. A cowboy makes those around him stand in awe of his wisdom, wit and true grit. He holds his mates hand as well as their heart. He treasures what others take for granted. He steps up when others step down and picks up those who stumble around him. A TRUE cowboy is solid, grounded and a gift from God. That is something no item bought at Sheplers or driven of the lot of a dealership can make.
Cowboys don’t sleep they just wait.
If cowboys picked wives like they pick horses they would have lifelong mates.
A cowboy is a gentleman with or without his hat and boots.
Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway!
– John Wayne
Well, I ain’t really got a quote that ain’t already been said. But I agree with True Cowboy..
I ain’t the most cliche cowboy, but I still say yes sir/yes maam to my momma, dad, an elders, along with ladies an gentlemen. 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.
Cowboys are gentlemen who treat women with respect and work hard. They use their manners more than any other man would and ride horse and bulls like their is no tomorrow.
It doesn’t matter if a Cowboy lives in the mountains or in the flats, as long as it’s warm and there is a place to lay his hat.
When the mule realizes that he’s being pushed, expect to be kicked.
“Cowboys are stronger than two red onions.”
Ride em’ and slide em’ don’t feed em’ and lead em’.
You ain’t born a cowboy or a cowgirl, its the way you were raised.
Cowgirls, a way of living.
An onion can make people cry but there’s never been a vegetable that can make people laugh.
– Will Rogers
Being a cowboy ain’t about wearing your fancy spotless 50xx beaver hat or riding you horse on a manicured trail on the weekends. It’s about getting up all hours of the night to check cattle in the winter time and freezing your hands while you do it, and cutting trail through brush so thick you can’t see ten feet in front of you, it’s not about driving around in a big jacked up pickup being ignorant. It’s about holding doors for your elders and the ladies just like truecowboy says. Being a cowboy isn’t a job or a hobby that you can just pick up.
It’s a life style that you live from the day you are born.
A true cowboy knows love, pain, and shame but never cares about fame.
Spit in one hand and wish in the other, then see which one gets fuller!
