Where I live the closest you'll get to a cowboy is a cow man (farm labourer - old photo but they haven't changed much including the rubber wellies http://www.halsteadonline.co.uk/people/10.htm)...not quite the same thing and I don't know of any women who have a romantic view of cowboys, but definitely some lust over farriers in their work chaps.

"Primus", Big Nick - I'm short on friends !

Hey, Clava, don't knock the UK cowmen. I got me one of those! Since my only two passions in life are horses and cows, and the fact that there are no "cowboys" over here, I didn't have much choice.

I did try out a few other occupations beforehand, mind you. First, there was the postman. To be honest, all we had in common was an ability to get up early in the morning. Then there was the accountant. He didn't take too kindly to me breaking a date because Ole Whitney One Eye had a touch of milk fever . . .

Yes, my "cowboy" wears wellies (pretty much a necessity in this climate) and he rides an ATV to herd the cows, but it's as close as I'm going to get.

I'm a little old fashioned and still use my cow pony for all that stuff. Unfortunately, my "cowboy" managed to fall off her while she was standing still so, yeah, not exactly "living the dream" over here.

I love the idea of having someone to share my passion with.

My ex was totally against the idea of having horses. The main reasons were 'putting myself in danger' and the financial responsibility.

I told him he plays with guns in war zones and chose to do that.

The idea is great. Like marrying a rich guy and having all the ponios you want. But reality? Meh. It just isn't there.

Saying that... the guy at the nomad ranch was... phew! We don't get many 'cowboys' out here. And seeing guys with skinnier legs than me in jods doesn't do much for my mental ideals!

Sorry, no offence meant , I have a huge soft spot for the young farmer who delivers our hay , I think the fact that the British can find romance in mud and wellies is just right.

Like I said, IMAGINE THE FREE SHOES AND TRIMS YOU'D GET. Come on ladies, with the money saved on that, we might be able to afford a new saddle in a few months!

OP - depends on the cowboy, but for sure if a cowboy is a cowboy just to get a woman, he's the same as the guy who spends his money just to get a woman. No character.

Sorry, my farrier doesn't inspire lust in me. I like him and he's kept my horses' feet in great shape, but he's hardly what I'd call prime man meat material. There are plenty of other women who find him attractive, including his wife, so I doubt he's crying in his beer over me!

My farrier is 70 something years old but all I can think of is all the aches and pains you'd have to hear about on a daily basis....

And as far as free shoes go... hopefully they aren't like mechanics... Did you ever see a mechanics car?!
