1. We’re all cattle ropin’, horse ridin’ cowboys and cowgirls.
Sure, many Texans participate in one or more of these activities, but given that 88% of Texans live in a metropolitan area, the residents of Texas are a lot more urban than you might expect. Oftentimes the closest most Texans have ever come to herding cattle is watching the annual rodeo…in a Stetson hat and Lucchese boots of course (that’s Texan for a cowboy hat and cowboy boots).
It’s worth noting that our police officers do sometimes patrol on horseback, so maybe this stereotype isn’t completely senseless.
