July 25th National Day of the Cowboy

There is something about the life of the cowboy that seems wholesome, even heroic. Naturally, as with all people, there are good cowboys and bad cowboys but in most cases, the cowboy does his job bothering no one as he, or she, goes about their work. It can be a lonely job and isn’t often celebrated like the life of a lawyer or a politician but requires an equal professionalism and dedication without the fanfare or insanity of higher profile jobs. The day has been celebrated on the fourth Saturday of July since 2005.

How to celebrate – Watch an old cowboy movie. Visit a Dude Ranch. Read about the real old west.
