Gotta Get Me Some Cowboy Boots

It seems that a cowboy is judged by a couple different metrics.  He’s judged by the way he wears his cowboy hat, the brand of chew he carries, and the kind of boots he wears.  I really have none of those since I don’t wear a hat, don’t chew and never wear boots.  How would I ever fit in a the the NCBA meeting in Denver.  I must stick out like a sore thumb.  In order to work good you have to look good I was always tell myself.

In the sprit of last years NCBA segment “What to consider when buying a Cowboy Hat,” I decided to this year to purchase a pair of cowboy boots. Now these are not just any cowboy boots but are very flashy exotic boots. Some would call them “your sunday go to church boots.”  I could choose between alligator or ostrich.  If you are going to a cattle convention you need to at least look the part.

I stopped at the Roper booth to get some boots and look at all my options.

You are cracking me up! I bought my cowboy boots when I went to the livestock show in Louisville! I have really come to love them too.


Glad to see that you are coming over to the wild west side! An expensive pair of boots that I hope don’t end up in your closet for the rest of their days. Good entertainment. I want to see the next one on belt buckles!


Loved this segment Shaun… especially the slide! So nice to see that not only is Real Agriculture informative, it’s got a humous side.
