    I don't really like the idea of some of the 'cowboys' I've seen around here, however, a man who is at least partially interested in my hobby and willing to try it out is gold. As long as he isn't a better rider than me! :)

    I'll get a degree of flack from this, but so be it (I'm a big boy now).

    Phly got a lot of it right.

    Women tend to be "in love" with the "idea" of the cowboy. What they see at shows or guys who ride western "like a cowboy". Having worked cattle in my youth allow me to dispel some of the idealized myth

    A real, cattle working person (man or woman....yes, while not as common back then I knew girl who worked cattle too) learn amazingly fast to shed anything that's uncomfortable, not functional or impractical.

    Tight jeans? Come on folks. Would you want to spend 6 to 10 hours a day 5-7 days a week working from horseback in tight jeans ? Loose jeans (or some other even more practical pants).
    As was pointed out...it's dirty, sweaty, grimy work (and that's the good side). There's not much that compares with having your girlfriend come looking for you (you're easier to find when you've got a 1/2 ton animal with you ) and finds you out on the backside of the "north 40" pasture with your arms up to your elbows inside a heifer that's have a difficult birth working to pull the calf out so you don't lose them. So it's easy to see that while I remember my girlfriends really having a "thing" about seeing me working on a horse, they weren't all the enthusiastic about "loving up" on me at the end of the day. Not until I showered and changed. It was the idea and the look of there "man" out there being a "man" doing "manly" work, but at the end of the day.....get clean, put on some tight jeans, nice shirt, a clean hat (not the sweating, dirty one that you work in) and then they'll hang all over you and think how thrilling it is to have a "cowboy" for a boyfriend.

    LOL! I gotta say this is all pretty right on! But........there's nothing sexier than a man who IS pulling the calf out of the heifer and actually DOES save them both. I don't care how sweaty, bloody, dirty, poopy, stinky he is!

    Speaking as a man. I personally have absolutely no objection to being an object

    For the OP, do you mean a real working cowboy (I think lbs not miles has that about right), a guy who dresses up to play cowboy, or a fantasy cowboy?

    That particular calf (bull) I remember, but only because my then girl, later wife, now ex (thank goodness some mistakes can be corrected ) named it Joshua (who became a steer) and sort of considered him has hers since she was there for his birth (but make now mistake....she was strictly a spectator ). She kept tabs on him and I don't think she ever really forgave me for the day she came out and he'd been hauled off with the load that went to market the day before. She honestly thought we were suppose to keep that steer.....just because she'd gotten attached to it ?

    ROFL! Sounds like my hubby with the chickens. I keep empty Tyson bags for when I "do the deed". He likes to pretend I go to the store. By the time it's time to cull the cows, he's been through enough with them that he's glad to see 'em go. I don't get close enough to get attached and never name them anything but Sirloin, Chops, Rump Roast, etc etc.

    You guys who said it's the idea of the cowboy that women love got it absolutely correct....and just so you fellas don't feel like you're alone in that, there are a lot of guys who fall in love with the idea of a cowgirl but can't handle the reality. It's all for the exact same reason.

    Girls who "love" cowboys think it's all just pleasant trail rides looking at majestic country with cattle grazing in the meadow. They just don't realize that it's actually long hard miles at a trot or a lope, hot sweaty days, and lots of cow crap mixed with either dust or mud....either way you get covered before the morning is out. A cowboy comes home late and smells bad when he gets there. Many of them around here (sorry guys from this thread) are butt-holes in one way or another. They are either so egotistical and chauvinistic that they simply can't tolerate a woman who can handle her own horse (those men are also generally in love with the idea of being a cowboy LOL) or they are obsessed with the job itself...which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but they don't want to make time for anyone else. I'm all for a guy who works his butt off, but I can't exactly build a relationship with a man who's never around.

    Of course, I'd likely be more inclined to go to work with him, but that's beside the point LOL.

    What's really sad though? Most real cowgirls know exactly what a cowboy is like and they still want one. Most cowboys want the "commercialized" cowgirls. That's the way it is around here anyway.

    Surely you don't think that we're unaware that women see us as "objects"?
    Women are worse than most men can imagine being . A guy will look and think "humm, nice _____(fill in whatever body part you want)". A woman will look and not only think it, but actually say "hey nice ____"
