    It really makes me giggle, becuase he is this scruffy, healthy, athletic guy who I feel towers over me. I'm 4 foot 11 inches and go about 100lbs-105lbs on a bad day.... and I saw it coming a mile away... plus he really isn't super comfortable around them and would let them walk all over him if I let him handle them (so I don't hehe).

    I think so! He doesn't like it when other horses get too close in the pasture when I come to see him. It's the only time he'll run another horse off. He's the lowest on the totem pole when coming in. He just stands quietly away from everyone else until they are all gone. But if I go down there and one comes up, go after them. Like this:

    I consider my fiancee half a cowboy. He rides bull and used to do alot of ranch work when his dad was alive, but he doesn't really fulfill the "cowboy" life style. He doesnt like horses and doesnt really know that much about cows. Only what he knows from bull riding. He hates it when I tell him he's not a cowboy lol. But he is my cowboy.

    A cowboy that doesn't like horses!! It can't be!!!

    Bull riding is pretty dang intense. That qualifies to me. No argument there!

    It's my goal to get him riding the ponies with me. I think he is somehow scared. He says, abd I quote " You know a bull is going to buck. You don't know if a horse is going to buck."

When we first met, I was still in college and renting a tiny place with 2 stalls, I had my gelding that I had for years and one "fixer-upper" horse that was a project. Of course, money was tight, but I had my horses and my dog, so life was good. I remember the first week that we were together, most guys brought me flowers, he showed up with some nice hay in his truck. Definitely better than flowers!

    I knew plenty of K-Mart cowboys, my rule was always that if my horse didn't like you, you were out. He always could pick out the losers. Honestly, most of the cowboys that I know only look the part when they are actually using it. Even then, a lot of them are in baseball hats.
    i wouldn't consider myself in the "cowboy" class at all... sure, I wear wranglers and boots every day, and increasingly "button up shirts," however, it's usually a dirty ole cap. Got the "cowboy hats" but they're all too clean, usually only bust out with them for some sort of "special occasion," or if I happen to be working a job dealing with cattle regularly. I did that for a while til I started picking cotton 60 miles closer to my house.

    It's kind of funny because I was the one who had the horse when I met my wife. And he took to her just fine, and I actually spent a LOT of time on her old gray horse before she got to call him officially "hers." sad for her, however I knew I liked him and he'd be ok for her. Hell, I bought her the old dodge she's got (because "I HAVE TO HAVE A TRUCK!!!" even when it cost twice as much to drive? "YEEEEEEES, I DON'T CAAAAAARE!!!" ok, not QUITE like that, but it's the idea....).

    You're not too far from me then. People ask me "Isn't the Dallas Bull a country bar?" I say, "well...technically, I guess it is, but all the music has been done over to a techno beat & there are a bunch of wannabe country people there!" It amazed me to see how people dressed to go to this country club...totally "city-slicker". I miss the days of my old Honky-Tonk, where people can be country, drink a longneck & dance country to actual country music! Lol

    And I've been reading all the posts on this thread, and there is a song that has been playing over and over in my mind. I know I may be showing my age, but I've been hearing Conway Twitty singing:
    "Don't you call him a cowboy until you see him ride cause a Stetson hat and some fancy boots don't tell you what's inside".
