There are times I find Myself wondering why men don't understand
my lifestyle and attitude toward life and relationships.
Then it crossed my Mind that many men in the great State of
Montana claim ot want a "country Girl" but what is a Country
I thought to Myself that since I Live 45 minutes from the nearest
town I must be one.
so why on earth am I still single?
But then it dawned on Me that when they say a Country girl they
mean as follows: wears the right attire such as boots, plaid
western shirt, tight jeans, and maybe a hat; loves to chase
Rednecks or Cowboys; usually lives in town or at least close to
it, she's free to go mudding or hunting anytime; and can ride a
horse in a circle.. or should I say go "horseback riding "
I concluded that I and many like me are not Country Girls, we are
we do wear boots, sometimes plaid, hats,loose jeans so we can get
on our horses and into trucks and combines easily, and Carhartts.
Now I'm not saying we're femanists or Manly, I'm just saying
we're not really going to chase guys.
We may be looking for a Man who can take on the ranch life with
and still love us when we cuss and cry our eyes out because
everything is wanting to die.
You're not going to find us waiting in town for something to
happen. we where raised out on the place working, spending whole
days in the saddle, being expected to help where we can.
we're out feeding hay all Winter trudging around through the snow
with wind burnt faces dressed in our faded, stained Carhartts
and muck boots frustrated because the tractor quit 3 miles back.
Spring: We're still feeding, trudging round in Carhartts, the
difference being we are packing calves in to throw in the hot
box, and to check the cows..again. we're pulling calves, using
our horses to put out pares every day or so, watching losesome
dove for the 30th time,the list could go on forever.
Summer: branding, fencing, checking the water and grass
situation, moving them around to keep water and grass in front of
them, putting salt out, bailing doctoring sick calves, among
Fall: harvest where we spend a majority of our time in combines
or semi trucks and depending on if you're lucky They may or may
not have air conditioning, a radio, or in the case of the trucks
a Jake brake.
And of course we wean, work everything, and doctor the sick.
I'm also not saying we're not interested in Men, are not fun to
be around, don't love to wear dresses,
dancing, hunting, going to the lake, and making memories with
friends and family.
I'm just saying our lives are unique, complicated in ways. but
very beautiful,it's the way of life we enjoy.
To meet a guy at an auction yard, rodeo, where he's working or if
he manages to find his way up here by the border,
is in my oppinion the most likely way I'll find a man who can
Love me and the 20 head of cows that come with me.
i'm out here working for and sometimes cussing out my beloved
I get to be my own boss, spend time with My parents and Brothers,
work with animals, and not wear makeup.
I am quite happy where I am doing what I do!
I hope someday maybe I'll end up married and can give a few more
people the amazing childhood I had and oppertunities I have now.
But if not..It's not like I don't have enough to do!
are any spelling errors don't judge..I was Home-schooled!
