Version #1

The word “cowboy” appeared in the English language by 1725. In the early 1700’s it simply referred to a ‘boy who tended cows’. Later the word described a man who tended cattle on a ranch and went about most of his work on horseback. These skills were then connected to rodeo riders known as cowboys

“Cowboy” appears to be a direct English translation of vaquero, a Spanish word for an individual who managed cattle while mounted on horseback. It was derived from vaca, meaning “cow,” which came from the Latin word vacca.

Version #2

The word “cowboy” (“cow-boy”, “cow boy”) was little seen in the U.S. in the decades before the great surge in cattle drives—prior to the 1870s. The word most commonly associated with America’s greatest folk heroes actually got its beginning in Ireland, and was commonly used in Britain from 1820-1850 where its meaning was quite literal, applying to the young boys tending the cows owned by a family or community. An earlier use by Jonathan Swift in 1725 also refers to nothing more than a boy tending cows.

Why Did The Cowboy Ride His Horse? Because he was too heavy to carry.

A cowboy rode into town and stopped at a saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals had a habit of picking on strangers, which he definitely was. When he finished his drink, he found his horse stolen. He went back into the bar, handily flipped his gun into the air, caught it above his head without looking, and fired a shot into the ceiling.

“Which one of you sidewinders stole my horse?!?!?!” he yelled with surprising forcefulness. No one answered. “Alright, I’m gonna have another beer, and if my horse ain’t back outside by the time I finish, I’m gonna do what I dun in Texas! And you don’t want me to do what I dun in Texas!”

Some of the locals shifted restlessly. They knew not to underestimate the word of a Texan, especially one who had a few too many beers. The man finished off a few more beers and walked outside where his horse had been returned. He saddled up, and started to ride out of town. The bartender wandered out of the bar and saw the man stumbling to get on his horse. “Say, partner,” he said, “before you go…what happened in Texas?” The cowboy turned back and said, “I had to walk home.”

    O my favorite subject ~~ cowboys. Of course being Texas born and raised gives me a special appreciation and love of all things cowboy. The strength, the work ethic, the endurance, the determination ~~ but most of all the heart. True cowboys have a heart of gold and can fill out a pair of Wranglers like nobody else (especially those “drugstore” guys trying to convince everyone they’re the real deal). Anyway, the hat, the boots, the pearl snap shirts and again, the Wranglers, make for some extremely nice scenery. Then put them on a beautiful horse and all is right in my world.
    And, my Dallas Cowboys ain’t bad either 🙂 🙂

    I love cowboys! Your cowboy series is awesome and I enjoyed reading them. The jokes are funny, I can’t wait to tell them to my friend. He owns a few cattle so he will get a chuckle out of them.
