an essay written by Darrell Arnold, publisher of Cowboy Magazine. Any comments?

Its not that there ain't no cowboys left, its just you can't see them from the road.

If it looks like a cowboy and dresses like a cowboy and wears a ten-gallon hat and boots, it's probably a truck driver - real cowboys wear tennis shoes! :)

To really know a true cowboy, I felt it meant
saddling up, (with all the odors, sand in your
teeth, wind in your face) and going out and
working with the cattle on a ranch. (i.e. WORK)
Then live like they live.
Now if it's any different than this, someone
enlighten me.
I just watched my dad and grandpa run a grain farm and 100-200 head Hereford beef cow farm here in the midwest on 420 acres. Our ranch riding was
done in pickup trucks!

According to the essay, if you don't do your ranch work on the back of a horse, you ain't a cowboy/girl.

Great article. Being as I spent the last 23 years in Texas I have seen TOO many Robert Redford cowboys.

By the same token, I was fortunate to be friends with REAL cowboys.

Don't forget READNECKS which can be either cowboys or Robert Redfords.

Definately liked the article. But still will not believe a resident of the innards of NYC, and not owning a car is a cowboy.

Yer right about being STUCK in the innards of Manhattan, but my other car is a horse.

Guess the innards of NYC can do strange things to a fella Jim:<)I said something to your post the day you left for the weekend, about changing the pump mount. Did you see it?
Later Bob

Yes, I did. I was off-line till the following Monday morning. I was gonna pick up the pump and bring it to a local machine shop and have them machine a plate for me out of 1/4" steel that would seat in the new pump on the universal mounting boss that comes with the pump. I have a mounting scheme thunk up, I just new to do quit a bit of prep work. I am a little weary about mounting to the front of the pump and leaving a bulky mass out front. So that is why I am using a 1/4" steel setup, and having machined to a few thousandths so I get a real snug fit. Next the majority of the loader lines are steel, and I need to replace the ones that run along the cross support and reroute them, because they are what is making contact with the previous pump. We got a real good snow over here and I was doing a lot of playing over the weekend. And I have had to complete that darn Holiday Honey-Do list. So unfortunately my wife reprioritized my schedule. I am hoping to get to it early next week.

Sounds good Jim.
