  •  cowboy, buckaroo (3+ / 0-)

    I realized I failed to make a distinction between the two. Both are out here.
    A cowboy is willing to drive a tractor and bale hay. He will also mend fences and do other 'ground work'.

    A buckaroo is a dying breed. They are the cattle masters, and literally live on horseback. For them, if it can't be done from atop a horse, fuck it. While both cowboys and buckaroos wear the wild rag, they differ in other styles of hats, boots, and clothing. The buckaroos also use different riding gear, and swing much longer ropes- up to 50 feet.

    There are still ranches out here large enough, and in country rough enough, that a buckaroo can find a job, but they're getting scarcer every year.  

    Right many are called, and damn few are chosen.
