Western Word of the Week - Maggot - #WesternWordoftheWeek


Welcome to our Weekly Western Word of the Day...

Maggot - derogatory name for a sheep; also called "woolies"

A sheepherder was known as a "Mutton-Puncher"

Ranchers were also at odds with sheep herders because the sheep would eat all the precious grass the cows demanded.
