Cowboy Wisdom

1. Don’t squat with your spurs on.
2. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
3. Letting the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.
4. If you’re riding ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.
5. Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly.
6. If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.
7. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
8. When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person, don’t be surprised if they learn their lesson.
9. Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.
10. When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
11. When you’re throwing your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.
12. Don’t worry about biting off more than you can chew. Your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger than you think.
13. Always take a good look at what you’re about to eat. It’s not so important to know what it is, but it’s good to know what it was.
14. It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
15. Go after life as if it’s something that’s got to be roped in a hurry before it gets away.
16. Never get up before breakfast. If you have to get up before breakfast, eat breakfast first.
17. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
18. There are more horses asses than horses.

  1. Some of it goes without saying. I am not sure why you would want to kick a cow chip on a cold day myself. Still some wisdom.
