At Oklahoma State, I get a letter from the Cowboys. I'm so excited. "Hey, watching your progress as a football player.” All this stuff, you know. I'm so proud, showing it to everybody. A guy named Jeff Edwards, who was from Midland, who came up there on a scholarship, but he had one leg shorter than the other, and it got to bothering him, so they made him a trainer. He got the same letter. So that burst my bubble.
Cowboys that's American, it means boys who milk the cow - call them 'Stockmen'.

Spending that many hours in the saddle gave a man plenty of time to think. That's why so many cowboys fancied themselves Philosophers.

For movies like The Longest Ride, I got to hang out with cowboys at rodeos and learned how to ride a bull, essentially.
Some of these bulls are gonna' spin those cowboys so fast, they'll look like a frog in a blender.
The cowboys have a way of trussing up a steer or a pugnacious bronco which fixes the brute so that it can neither move nor think. This is the hog-tie, and it is what Euclid did to geometry.
I have turned down soaps operas. I want to be outside, and I want to have the gun. It is cowboys and Indians to me.
Always have faith in God, Yourself and the Cowboys.
Except for the two years he had lived with cowboys in North Dakota,and being the employer of a dozen or so servants,Roosevelt had never had to suffer any prolonged intimacy with the working class.From infancy,he had enjoyed the perquisites of money and social position.The money,through his own mismanagement,had often run short,and he was by no means wealthy even now, but he had always taken exclusivity for granted.
I've always had a massive fascination with the modern day cowboys. Modern day outlaws or going against the system, and that's always been very intriguing to me.
I am nervous about this game. The Cowboys’ best player, quarterback Tony Romo, is not going to play because he has a broken finger. The Cowboys ought to be able to win without Tony Romo because the St. Louis Rams are terrible, but I am still nervous.
I always liked the idea of the guitar - because cowboys played the guitar.

We say it’s a modern American Western - two gunslingers who ride into town, fight the bad guys, kiss the girl and ride out into the sunset again. And we were always talking from the very beginning that if you’re going to have cowboys, they need a trusty horse.
I knew just by reading this guy, Nathanael West, that he was probably one of those icky East Coast guys with glasses who got mad because when he came to L.A., all those starlets preferred producers or cowboys to him.
Cowboys had guitars. And they sang country 'cause they lived in the country.
I’m not trying to turn you into cowboys, I’m just trying to get you better coordinated, get your horse used to things, get your horse comfortable.
Heck, on the first ride you should be swinging a rope off a horse. You should be doing this not so you can rope a cow, but just to get him (your horse) gentle.
You can’t think of everything in life your horse might encounter that might make him afraid so you’d better prepare em for it in other ways.
