Cowboy Rules to Live By...

Or at least things you need to think about!


Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.


Don't never whittle towards you and never spit against the wind.

There's two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither one works.

  Letting the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier 'n putting it back in.
If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.
If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else's dog around.

Be cautious in choosing a mate, don't go settlin' for one who can't open the gate.
A mountain lion felt so good after eating an entire bull he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him...

The moral:     When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

Don't squat with your spurs on.
Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
If you find yourself in a hole,  the first thing to do is stop digging.


  It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.

Always drink upstream from the herd.
  The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.

The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation.

And the rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.
