(Everything NORTH of Sacramento is Northern California to us Northerners, the rest is just
Not all cowboys are from Texas, Wyoming, Arizona, Oklahoma or New
Mexico. There are a lot from other places. Being a cowboy is not just putting on a pair of
boots and a hat. It is more than listening to country music or liking horses. It has to do
with attitude, honor, respect, and values. It is a way of life EVERYDAY, not just when it
is convenient, or fashionable. Cowboys are private, and sociable, dry and humorous, young
and old, black, white, Asian, etc., forthright and a little crass at times. It is, in
itself, the most respectable and best qualities of mankind. Yeah, they tend to be a little
rowdy, loud, sometimes stretch the truth till it looks really thin (but not broken), but
that is what we expect. Frederick Remington and Charles Russell captured the sprit on
canvas, and sculpture. Teddy Roosevelt became one after moving to Montana from New York.
Thank your stars above for the American Cowboy. He still does exist.
