    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.

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

    Well said Kevinshorses!

    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 going to 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 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 that's what gets the girl.

    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.

    Haha, im so blonde, I don't get it. Where are the guys with the jeans, boots, and hats? First or second? Lol, I am not kidding. Also, I think they want the "pretty lil cowgirls" to fall for them, but then realize that most of them are tougher than them,lol. I agree with above poster(s) about the whole real cowboy think instead of imposter. Haha :)
