BovineGuy,

Are you really a cowboy? I was recently in Texas and had a chance to watch a rodeo...that's a tough life, if you ask me...

BovineGuy,

:biggrin: No, I had a dog named Cowboy a whole lot of years ago, and the first time I needed a user name for a forum, everything I tried was already taken, so I tried Bovineguy, it seemed like a good name and it worked. So I have used it now for over 15 years. But you are right, it is a tough life. I do ride, have owned a number of horses over the years, I've worked cattle, grew up on a small ranch, but I would never call myself a Cowboy.
