North Pole West , Cowboy Lingo

When it comes to colorful speech, the cowboy is a master at mixing simple images from nature with their own brand of slang.  This hybrid language is an American classic and probably one of the reasons the cowboy is so warmly regarded as a true western original. Part of the fun of this language is learning how to speak it for yourself, so  on the following pages we present a little cowboy dictionary to help you with your western education. In addition to cowboy lingo we are including other classic old west terms that were used by miners, gamblers, outlaws and lawmen.  In the making of this fun dictionary it came to my attention that there are a lot of cowboy words for whiskey.  I wonder what ever could this could mean?
