No kidding. I think you might not have the best ratio of cowboys to farm girls there in New England. . .eastern Colorado might be a better spot.

I know this is cheesy, but I swear I saw a farmer specific online dating site somewhere. Greenhorns? Maybe?

You are aware of the longstanding history of discord between cattlemen and sheep herders,right?

Yes, you DO. They are the BEST. The old-fashioned, possibly not-necessarily-all-that-progressive, kind, respectful, tough and soft-spoken type is the BEST. The right kind puts a LOT by loyalty and other cool things that comes with "old-fashioned values". Mine watches Glenn Beck and I watch Jon Stewart. He can build a shed, harvest a duck, find any shortcut and carry me across a parking lot. He shows up. Every day. He believes in things, including relationship, and he shows up to make them happen. I wish, for you, the very best kind of cowboy. They ROCK.

Except that I've always read that sheep people and cattle people don't mix....something about the sheep grazing the grass too close...

Ummm...why are there no chaps on these cowboys? Worn chaps on jean clad butts, the best. And I second Kristin, did you talk to any of these cowboys? Loving them in silence doesn't work, Girlfriend ;^). ~Vonnie, NH

It's too late for me to marry a cowboy....and I can't seem to convince the one I am married to dress up like a cowboy for Halloween--which isn't exactly the same at all.

Maybe I can trick him into becoming one? I've started small, with a couple of dogs....maybe if I add in something a little larger.....?

Or maybe, yeah, you better just do it so I can live vicariously through you.

Nah, didn't talk to any of them. They were behind fences and in a no-spectator area. But I did hear about every other rider's location, and most were near Veryork!

You should start hanging around near Pond Hill Ranch up near Castleton! They have a weekly rodeo up there plus you can go and do trail rides which is super fun (I will always go for a trail ride!) I managed to find a cowboy at work, although he's ditched the belt buckles and the cowboy boots at the office since then. :)

I agree with Zelda. I'm from cowboy country. My husband even comes from a cowboy family but broke the tradition, much to his family's dismay. Better to marry a farmer. Trust me.

When my kids (the two legged ones) were in 4-H there was a saying around the barn that worked for both genders.

"Wrangler butt's drive me nuts". It was also part of an ad campaign.

To enjoy some really good cowboy(s) attire pop over to Ree Drummond's blog "The Pioneer Woman". I try not to notice other women's husbands but she kind of puts it out there -in an "educational" way.

Cowboy, absolutely. Rodeo Cowboy(rough stock)- not so much. I used to have me one of those and he was a mess. Take it from me sister. Unless you are willing to carry him around in a basket after he gets the better end of a bull, take a pass. But everyone is different, don't want to prejudge. "You can't get these kind of muscles anywhere but a farm."

Not alot around these parts Jenna:( Plenty of flannel and jeans but not alot of that cowboy integrity or those values a good country song or movie makes us believe still exists, both sides of the gender coin.

Waylon said it best..."momma's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys." But especially don't marry one! Having said that, I did and I wouldn't change a thing!

Well, according to Rodgers and Hammerstein - the cowboy and the farmer SHOULD be friends!

PS: I have my heart set on a woodworking rancher (one who will build me a spinning wheel as an expression of his love!) :-D

I loved me a cowboy once-it's true what they say when they get the bad side of that bull your going to the E.R., He was true cowboy thru and thru His daddy owned a Ranch and he took to farming to please me. Unfortunately it didnt please him. Today I'm still single and he is out doing what he loves, as you say Bulldoging.
I loved that man and he broke my heart but his heart is where it should be and soemhow that gives me peace of mind. Good Luck Jenna
