Lol exactly. And those stupid REALLY pointy toes. Man I'm surprised their feet don't hurt just sitting there.

I like to say that "cowboy" is a verb not a noun. Cowboy is something that you are doing as opposed to something that you are. Like I'm going to be cowboyin' for the hangin E. Or I can't go fishing cause I got cowboyin' to do. I know many people that are the wanna be hanger ons that can't hardly swing a leg over a horse but to hear them talk they are the future world champion. Also the majority of rodeo "cowboys" are athletes not cowboys.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

^ i agree. Just being a rodeo competitor doesn't make you a cowboy.

I hate when people pose like that. Unfortunately, I went out with one. Eww. I mean, he rides broncs, but he's just a rodeo cowboy. He's stuck up and thinks he's better than everyone else. Including me. ( I didn't know him that well when we went out...didnt last long.) I'm gonna knock him down a peg one of these days. I hate egotistical people. But I love real cowboys. :)

I just saw what kevinshorses said...Well said!

Excellent observation kevinshorses. I agree. I think that's why the wannabe cowboy's bother me - it speaks volumes about a man's personality that he would pretend to be something he's not just to get laid. Then again, half the time, the blonde bimbos they're picking up wouldn't know a cowboy from a heifer and they're really not on the market for an actual cowgirl that can whup their butt.

I suppose the times are changing. I often regard rodeo cowboys as cowboys only because there was a time when they DID learn the tools of the trade by actual doing - you only entered the rodeos because it was something to do on a quiet weekend after all the colt breakin' was done. I suppose nowadays that's changed quite a bit.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

I can't stand it when guys dress up as cowboys. I find the cowoy attitude to be much more attractive. If a guy can ride a horse or a bull, then he's already earned respect in my mind. Guys who pose as a cowboy have no respect. I like guys who can be true to themselves, not just dress up like something cause they think thats what gets the girl.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Yes, I'm definitely attracted to REAL cowboys...I see a lot of imitations where I'm from and its so horrible! The funniest part is theres a bar about 20 minutes from my house called the Dallas Bull, the first floor is a right out of the story books saloon type layout, complete with a mechanical bull and some sort of weird as all heck dance contest (its hilarious to watch though) and the second floor is a dance club....guess where you find all of those snakeskin boots, cowboy hats and Wrangler jeans?

Rough working hands get me every time.^^ I also agree with roughrider, if a man knows how to ride a horse (or is at least willing to learn) MAJOR points in my book.
