    I only know of one young man who tried it.....the pay sucked big time, and eventually he moved back to town where he could earn enough to support a family. The rancher seemed to think that the free housing (trailer house) and utilities should be enough to compensate for the very low pay.

    Cowboys eat red meat 3 squares a day and traditionally have very low cholesterol.

    I always thought cowboys are born, not trained to become one.

    More to the point, how do you stop your child from being what's in their heart? And if you could, why would you want to?

    sure, if my kid wanted to be a cowboy and play country guitar, i'd be cool with it. i'd encourage him to go to college anyway, though, so that he can always have a backup plan. plus, college communities often have thriving music scenes.

    Doctors and lawyers. Who needs cowboys? Doctors will make their money treating lawyers, and lawyers will make their money suing doctors. And they will buy meat from Argentina.
