Cowboy Countdown-Five


Cowboys. Wranglers. Ranchers. By any name they’re the men and woman who work hard and play hard, loving the outdoors. Now I’ve seen my share of cowboys, and ranches. And farms and farmers for that matter. But I’ve never seen a ranch down under, so I had a bit of trouble with the guest author we’re off to see today.

Names for things are different between North America and Australia. That’s all I’m saying…


Jess Dee is hosting our excursion today. (See the cowboy? This was the closest I could get to having him upside down so he’d be right side up for Jess.) Leave a comment here first and then head over the water for a visit– do you know any Australian slang?

I don't know anything about down under!! I do like all these cowboys, and if some of them come from Australia, I would love to go there one day:)

Only what I've read in books and on the web. Although for a while everyone here talked about going "walkabout".

Hey Viv, I was fortunate enough to spend some time in Australia (Melbourne, Sydney, Caines, and Brisbane). Here are a few terms that I remember. The obvious being Aussie, Barbie (barbecue), bloke (man), bloody, boozer (pub), bushie (a person who lives in a bush), Down Under, G'Day, Hooroo, Jackaroo, Knocker, Moolah, Mate, Outback and Root rat, which I thought was funny because it means someone who is constantly looking for sex. Hey we were in their equivalent of a red light district. It was for educational purposes. That became one of our classmates nicknames. Thanks for the contest and can't… Read more »

Viv, nice cowboy eye candy.

"Whoa, baby, come set a spell on the couch with me. Cuddle up and let me rub your sore muscles, and…"

Oops, was that my mind wandering, and a bit of drooling again, sorry.

Have a "gday", I'm on my way down under.

Before I saw the whole picture, he totally looked upside down to me. Took me a minute to figure out that he was laying down…and waiting on me to come join him. :) Ha Ha

The only thing I can think of is G'day mate…which is not too impressive!

Thanks for the great visuals every day.

I'm hoping that someday I get to see Australia (and a cowboy or 2…..although I'll have to be sneaky since hubby would be with me!) :)

That hot cowboy would get a tongue lashing from me for his boots on the couch – actually any excuse would do…

Any way, the only slang I know is TUCKER means meal or food – 'cause that's my hubby's name! And boy oh boy is he a meal… and smokin' in a cowboy hat.

Oh is _that_ why he's lying opposite to where I'm about to join him? Hmmm. :p Another great cowboy for us Viv! Some day I want to go picture-searching with you as my guide ;-) So, Aussie slang — when it's their turn to buy a round, they say it's their "shout". I find this expression increasingly amusing the more "shouts" there are in a night ;-). One I find confusing is when you ask an Aussie's preference and they say "I don't mind". For a long time I thought that meant they didn't care :-( Turns out, no! It… Read more »

Your poor cowboy looks like he's about to fall. He's welcome to land on me.

I love books set in Australia.
Two words that I see often are mate, refering to their friend, or just another person.

And bloody as in 'their bloody bad luck', where we would say 'their damned bad luck'.

I don't know any slang other than a couple already listed.

This cowboy looks like he needs me to come take a nap with him *g*

I don't know a lot of Aussie slang, just what I've heard in the movies.

Love the picture!!! I'll take him upside down or right side up or?

All Aussie slang that I know seems to already have been mentioned. I keep picturing Paul Hogan from Crocodile Dundee. lol
