Cowboy logic


The Code of the West

Ask no more and give no less than honesty, courage, loyalty, generosity, and fairness

Two poems you must read - in memory of Lane Frost

Don't  never interfere with something that ain't botherin' you none

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance

Never take to sawin' on a branch that's supportin' you, unless you're being hung from it

There's more ways to skin a cat than stickin' his head in a boot jack and jerkin' on his tail

After weeks of beans and taters, even a change to taters and beans is good

Never kick a fresh turd on a hot day

After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good 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.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'

Never smack a man who's chewin' tobacco

Never follow good whiskey with water, unless you're out of good whiskey

The biggest liar you'll ever have to deal with probably watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning

If you get to thinkin' you're  a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around

Don't worry about bittin' off more than you can chew. Your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger'n you think

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

Always drink upstream from the herd

Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly

Trust everybody in the game, but always cut the cards

If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there

No matter where you ride to, that's where you are

Some things just ain't funny

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

Don't squat with yer spurs on

Only a buzzard feeds on his friends

The only way to drive cattle fast is slowly

Always take a good look at what you're eatin'. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and stick it in your pocket

Never miss a good chance to shut up

No tree is too big for a short dog to lift his leg on

When you get to where you're goin', the first thing to do is take care of the horse you rode in on

Never joke with mules or cooks as they have no sense of humor
