Cute Cowboys, Ropin’ Cows & Cow Ponies

A Ropin’ Day at the Cowgirl Co-op

Be still my heart! The two cutest cowboys just rolled up the ranch driveway with a passel of cows and ropes a twitchin’. THE Cowgirl had arranged a rope day at the ranch and found two of the cutest, most talented ropers around. Why they even brought their own cows! Having grown up on the range, these guys were true cow wranglers and still roped cows the old way….. with skill and sitting on the back of a good cow pony!

Let loose the cows, get out the ropes and plant those cute cowboy buns in the saddle. The ranch ropin’ day at the Cowgirl Co-op has begun!

Hmmmm, it’s going to be a great day watching cowboys ……. I mean watching how cowboys rope cows that is. These guys are really good and so willing to teach their methods to the other folks around.

Single a cow out of the herd and start ropin’! Let’s try this black one to start with. Cute cowboy #1 makes a loop,  gives it a twirl and takes one black cow by the horns!

The cowboy got his first rope around the horns and now THE Cowgirl is going to rope the back legs.

Catch those little black back feet in a loop. Easier said then done! But she’s intent!

Success with that cowgirl rope! Got the cow down and snuggly held between the two cow ponies. Now if we were a real cow raisin ranch, this is when we would administer any needed shots, do a little branding or if it was a young male steer, well he might get up with a few private parts gone! Now set her free.

Woo hoo! One mad cow and one foot still roped. Got to get her loose somehow! In runs the cowboy to do the deed.

So its one thing to have a bull by the horns but a whole ‘nother story to have a cow by the tail! No worries cute cowboy #2 handled it with ease.  All in a days work on the range!

Oh not again! I thought I cured him of this at the last cow rope.  This isn’t what a respectable cow pony puts up with.

THE Cowgirl takes her hand at throwing some ropes. She’s already a good roper but practice makes a cowgirl even better.

  1. What a great resource!

  2. Couldnt agree more with that, very attractive article

  3. From the content of this blog, it sounds like even the teen author had a great day. Too bad everything has to boil down to gook and objectification of someone’s looks. I’ll have to schedule a visit.

  4. Looks like a fun day, although I’m sure those men would rather be recognized for their talent and skill than their “buns…” Do either of them have names? That kind of objectification detracts from the true purpose of the goings-on.

  5. Went to watch to happenings yesterday and it was great fun. I wish I had been able to participate. Mark and Preston were very laid back and easy to learn from. Obviously they enjoy what they do. Thanks for the Cowgirl Co-op… Wonderful idea.. Hope to be back soon..
