What is a Cowboy? According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary it is “one who tends cattle or horses especially; usually mounted cattle-ranch hand” or a “rodeo performer.”
I say a Cowboy is a heck of a lot more than that! The true definition of a Cowboy is someone who works from sun up to sun down. They work with integrity, honesty, compassion, yet are tough as nails! There is pretty much nothing a cowboy can’t do. They keep the baby calves alive during the long cold winters, they withstand the 100 degree days in the summer putting up hay. They feed America! They compete in a sport where real American Pride is still represented, where God is first in all that they do, because they know that he made them a cowboy for a special reason. They teach values and work ethic to the future generations of Cowboys and Cowgirls! A Cowboy is a larger than life person that can not be replicated.
Cowboys come in all forms, but what a Cowboy really is, is a God fearing, Country Loving individual, who can out work anyone. A Cowboys handshake still means something in today’s world and he won’t stop fighting for the next generation, to preserve a life that only some could dream of living!
God Bless the Cowboy & Cowgirl
