If you’re like me, you may think you would love to be a cowboy, if only for a day! I have the same dreams about becoming a rodeo cowboy as the rest of you, but I know for sure I’m not ready to take that first step, because I’m too scared! A cowboy has a number of responsibilities when it comes to owning and managing his or her own ranch. First of all, you must decide what type of cattle you want to raise, and how much you can afford to invest in them. Also, you must decide whether you want to keep your head out of the public eye at all times, or just to a certain area of the ranch. The latter is more advisable if you own a cattle ranch, since a cowboy’s biggest responsibility is to provide a good living for his or her fellow cowboys, or cowgirls. If you want to keep the herd away from the public eye, you’ll need a good fence – a fence that you have to maintain, but that’s still strong enough to protect the cows from predators and from any weather elements.
