Cowboy Wisdom for Today

I am sharing these pearls of cowboy wisdom, courtesy of fellow western author, Ron Scheer, who blogs at Buddies in the Saddle and The Real West

  • Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway.
  • Don’t expect mules and cooks to share your sense of humor.
  • Your buckle don’t shine in the dirt. Get up.
  • Don’t let your yearnings get ahead of your earnings.
  • Don’t wake a sleepin’ rattler.
  • Ride it like you stole it.
  • Size does matter. The bigger your buckle the better.
  • Cattle know why they stampede, but they ain’t a-talkin’.
  • The fastest way to move cattle is slowly.
  • If you’re gonna drive cattle thru town, do it on Sunday. There’s little traffic and people are less disposed to cuss at ya.
  • A hat brim breaks a spider web before your face does.
  • When somebody outdraws you, smile and walk away. There’s plenty of time to look tough when you’re out of sight.
  • Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction.
  • You cannot unsay a cruel word.
