Country Cowgirls
Here's the Texas Team of Boatman and Beard. Both ladies appeared as 2010 Outdoor Girl features
for us. And since we're calling this Country Cowgirls ... I felt it only fitting that a couple of Texas
gals show what we're looking for. We really have no rules other than ... the photo needs a gal and it appears country and or cowgirl-ish. The panel here at says ... plaid shirt, denim jeans/shorts, boots, cowboy hat, straw, woods/timber, crop fields, old barns, old tractors or farm machinery, livestock, Beltbuckles and ... basically anything deemed "country" in the photo qualifies.
This photo was sent to me for the random page ... some time back. I never posted ... as we were receiving a fair amount of cowgirl themed photos. So ... this is the photo that actually created the gallery idea. I don't know either name for the gals ... so if anyone does, please enlighten me.
Nichole from left to right ... Cowgirl Hat and boots, .. working in the garden,
and wearing camo outdoors ... Those all work for the gallery.
Above ... Nichole hangs outdoors in the woods and on the beach. But ... not just any
swimsuit will do ... no, ... Country Girls hang out wearing a Camo Bikini !
So ... I asked the dynamic duo from Texas, the team of Boatman & Beard if they could help
provide a few more examples of what a Country-Cowgirl themed photo might consist of ?  
Well ... the above photos are ... Miss Nichole's GREAT examples ... and below are the equally
COOL photos examples from Miss Jenn. Thanks girls ... I appreciate your willingness to share.
Here we go ... left to right ... Jenn carrying a 100 pound sack like it's nothing, then running around barefooted in the woods ... and sporting the cowgirl hat and leather belt. These work great !
Duck hunting in the bay is certainly a country girl thing, & sticking a beer into your black and silver cowboy belt while boot scoot'n on the dance floor is another great example of the photos we're after.
Then, ... Jenn rounds out her examples with a pretty little sundress sitting in the
flowers along with her chocolate labs. Oh ... also counting is the wooden fence in
the backbround further making the photo country themed.
I think Nichole and Jenn have made it pretty
clear what this gallery is all about !
The Country Cowgirls Gallery
 .... will END December 31st
The next Photo goes here
