Can you tell the difference between a real cowboy and a wanna be cowboy? If so tell me how.
Is it when their boots cost more than their trucks or what's under them boots that counts? Could it be in the way they walk from all the horse riding or the way they shape their hat? What do you think?
To me it's about their knowledge and experiences. From this I'll get a gut instinct which is usually right. The costs of things tend to give things away as a person tries to make up for things that they are deficient in within their own minds.
A real cowboy works cattle and the most likely place would be on a ranch. Anyone else who calls themselves a cowboy but does not work with cattle isn't.
REAL cowboys wear scratchy underwear that they often have to wear for several days before they (can) change it..... FAKE cowboys have the latest 100% cotton undies, which are washed with fabric softener... AND they (fake cowboys) change their undies most every day.....
Ok Duffsmom what about the bull riders and rodeo guys?
Espress10 You are to funny with the making up for deficiencies lol
OK Ackman What is up with the underwear and fabric softener deal? I have to ask is this from personal experience or a friend?|lol
I'll agree with Duffsmom. "Cowboy" is a job, and someone who makes a living in the hands-on part of ranching is a cowboy (or cowgirl). Bull riders and rodeo guys are entertainers using cowboy-related skills. The actor who played Marcus Welby, MD was
That's true I guess they are more entertainers than cowboys because some never worked a cow in their life. Good point SidKemp
Fake cowboys pull up at the gas stations in a big truck, boots, tight pants, a cowboy hat with 20 inch rims blasting rap music from their "system". Real Cowboys pull up at the gas station with dirty boots in an old F150 shaking their heads at the idiot with the rims!
boots are never shiny and never pointy toed
tuck their pants into their boots a lot
spurs are not shiny and down to nubs
hats ARE shaped and dusty
the way they hold their hats
the way the lean more towards one hip when standin (they just do)
faded thined out Copenhagen ring on that back pocket
hunting outfits consists of jeans and a tshirt
can finish the lines "hey, good lookin. Wha..." and "Mr. Boj..."
It's their overall presence. I can tell a mile away, but I've grown up around them and a little bit one myself. (girl of course
So there ya go ... if you were even serious, but I doubt it. :p
It doesn't matter how much the boots cost. As long as you pants are on the outside. I'm a beginner bull rider and I still only have my boots outside of my pants when I'm about to get on. I hate show offs. And if you're wearing an Aussie type hat I won't take you seriously and EXCPECIALLY not one of the stray bendy curled up hats. I'll just laugh and I won't be able to take you seriously
Being a cowgirl is not something you can act. Its how you are raised and your morals. Clothes don't determine whither or not your a cowgirl. Some cowgirls like to dress up in nice clothes. Some like wearing jeans, a old faded t-shirt, and dirty boots like me. Some like wearing sweats. So don't judge a book by its cover. A real cowgirl doesn't care who shes pleasin unless its God, her parents.or herself.
A Real cowgirl would never want to put someone down.
