GayCowboyCentral Listing

Retired cowboss, trim (30" Wranglers), ten pounds of 'stache on a 155 lb body retired (end 2018) working ranch foreman, wary of finding a new partner to share life with but time to buck up, come down from the corral railing and look again. Polish blue eyes, hair silver, one friend says I look like Old West character actor central casting sent down. Bilingual Eng/Sp, have worked ranches in Calif, New Mexico, Arizona, Central America, Hawai'i. Living at hq of good-sized wildland and flood- and wheel line-irrigated pasture ranch where I'd ramrodded, way out on the wild desert (my ex put it, "this landscape is homicidal!") not far from Tombstone, two hours from Tucson in the Borderlands on "road" you ought to think twice about driving your town car on. Oh and your cell phone won't work here either--no towers. Remain some on call for input on ranch work like round-ups and scatterings, weaning calves, troubleshooting machinery, taking care of our four or five horses but have mostly turned over the reins of all that. Have strong connection to & interest in Sonora and ranching life on that side of The Border & at home on either side of this fiction we call "The Line". HIV-neg but pos-friendly, play safe. Shaped by physical ranch labor, not working out but working outside. Appreciate manliness & other men who have or do still work hard & who understand how that the brand you rode for is forever going to mean in your life, & about how you know you've gone from cowboy to rancher when two pens are in your workshirt pocket instead of one: in short, if you're a man hopes to "have" a cowboy, be careful what you wish for. I'm solvent, have an adequate retirement fund, can back a stocktrailer to a loading gate using the side mirrors--but also been taught how hard it is for two older men to take up together what with their lives long set how & where they want, specially for one like me still tangled up in his old outfit's affairs. I'm not likely to be looking to take up life outside the Southwest (i.e. San Antonio to Calif coast) or Mexico, but that doesn't mean you can't come here or that we shouldn't explore things. With coronavirus restrictions looking like they'll soon be lifting, and my eyes getting cold and restless & wounds be almost healed from my last try at cowboy love I'm thinking of someone new to love even if I do wonder if that's even possible, much less practical. I give cowdog loyalty to a pard the same as I have to any outfit "workin' for wages" but keep in mind the words to Waddie's "Horses, Dogs and Cowboys"--"When life bucks ya off in a canyon/and your only way out is a friend/any one of the three I have mentioned/will stick like a tick to the end/for horses and dogs and good cowboys/will give all they've got til they die/but latch the gate tight/or wander they might/without ever saying goodbye." I won't hold your flaws against you, and I won't think your broken parts are callin' out to me to fix. Hell, I've stopped trying to fix myself! Sexual "nuts" n bolts: though it's not the driving force it used to be, still have my lifelong taste of play on the rough and tumble side--it'd be nice to have some men in my life who, like me, had got aroused by the sight of a cowboy tied up by outlaws in those old tv Westerns. Happy to take either role if you want to make that real but not into the intense leather-bar scene; good fittin' wranglers, chaps, spurs, calloused hands from work get me goin' & if you're in ok shape and a bit twisted that'll work just fine.

General Description

Thinking hard over life itself, getting to be a long one now of living in the wildlands without a whole lot of gay male companionship. I'm deeply integrated into this remote rural community of ranchers and artists and retired professors who (mostly) don't care if I'm gay but take the attitude "He may be a queer cowboy, but he's OUR queer cowboy." I'm granted housing on this outfit in my retirement and put lots of time into the garden here that has maybe the most beautiful view of any in all the Southwest & I sure love to share it. I can grow about anything, from beef to orchids. A few songs by Dave Stamey mean a whole lot to me, at this stage of my life on this range: "The Circle" ( ) and "A Song for Jake" ( ) and it still not being long since my last breakup, "Mountains of the Heart" ( ) and--songs that apply to two men trying to stay together, one of 'em a working cowboy, and how it falls apart and why ... "She left me this morning, went her own way/now and I'm sittin' here thinkin' in the heat of the day/an old played out land/and an old run down shack/I couldn't blame her if she never looked back ... Guess I can't be a cowboy/and keep a good wife ..." Dust on the Barbed Wire ( ) "Never fall in love with the tall men who ride/they are married to the seasons/and the cattle are their pride ..." Jealous of the Moon ( )
