Why are cowgirls and cowboys called that?
I mean they don't even ride cows they're on horses!!!!
Well they rode on horses to round up cows, therefore "cow"boy
Horsegirl and horseboy don't "flow" well. :p haha
In the old days they were wranglers. Horses were just another tool to help them get the cattle(cows) from one place to another. They were cowboys because cattle was what they worked with the most since that is where the money was.
Exact reason why fireman is called fireman. Cowboys deal with cows on a continuous basis.
Yeah lol.. The cow thing. XD
