July 23rd National Day of the Cowboy

Cowboys made up a lot of what settled the west and expanded the United States to California. The day was created by the NDOC in 2005 and made a resolution by the Senate #138, so it is official! Cowboys were sometimes good, other times bad but they were supposed to live by a “Code of Conduct”, or a “Code of Ethics”. Among those codes are to be honest and courageous, take pride in their work, stay curious at all times, do and finish what they started, be tough but fair, keep their promises, be of clean thought, word, deed and dress, to fight for what’s right and be stewards of the land and animals.

How to celebrate – Can you meet the Cowboy’s “Code of Ethics”? (And did many of them keep to the code?) Go to a dude ranch and be a cowboy for a day. Visit Dodge City.
