    One question, can submitters vote as well?
     
  12. Definitely! Though it's considered rather uncouth to vote for oneself. :smile:
     
  13. That would be about the only what I would get a vote. :biggrin: :wink: That is of course, if I entered.

    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...
     
  15. :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.
