Cowboys had a tough life. They would ride around keeping their herd of cattle together, then sleep. When they woke up they would have to round up their cows and bring them to where they can sell them. Sometimes it would take multiple days to get to where they can sell them. They would have long days of riding. Which would hurt, it isn't anything like riding a car. It is bumpy and hard. But they got payed well. They would get back and town, and tell all the people stories, just to get attention.
