A different kind of cowgirl











O.K. so I'm not totally certain where this blog is going to go so the ending will be a surprise to all of us. It's just somthin I just started thinking about lately.




When people ask me if I am a "cowgirl" I don't always know what to say. (I usually say yes). I don't have cattle, but I've helped with friends and know a bit about them. I don't Rodeo. Never have. I do love the rodeo though. I had the chance to get a barrel horse and start but chose to go with a pleasure horse. I do know about horses. I have had them all my life, as has my Mother and Grandfather. I train myself I don't have a pro trainer. I can ride the trail or go to the show. I don't consider my self any thing great but I have received many compliments from people who I think are great. I believe cowboys and cowgirls (cow people) have a certain way of life. They seem to have a certain beliefs. Life is pretty simple, it's honest and kind (most of the time). It's hard working. It's knowing how to have a good time. It's dirty. It's a common bond with other people like you. It's having a gift with horses and other livestock. It's knowing how to look at things a little differently . It's helpful when it can be. It's common sense.




I feel like I am all those things. Some of them a little more then others. I do not believe that it is how you dress, the music you listen to or the car you drive. So am I a "cowgirl" Yes. Just maybe I am a different kind of cowgirl then the ones you read about in stories or magazines. Are you?

I believe I am. However, I'm all cattle and not much horse!

Yeaaa, your a cowgirl!

It's all a state of mind...and I think you nailed it pretty darn good.

I agree with BECG...it is a state of mind... at the same time I also wonder what really makes someone a cowgirl...does riding "western" make you a cowgirl? Do you have to know cows or throw a rope? It's a good question...

It's my first stop over here. You're horse is gorgeous! He's so big!!

Aw sshoot- I think I'm gonna cry! You are a cowgirl darlin- I raised you to be one. I think you put it very eloquently! Remember you don't have to be a chicken to recognize an egg!

Thanks for all you comments. I don't think you have to ride western. In fact I happen to ride english most of the time these days.
