Western Word of the Week - Waddie - #WesternWordoftheWeek #WesternWednesdays

Howdy!

Welcome to our Weekly Western Word of the Day...or, as I affectionately call it, Western Wednesdays!

Waddie - a slang term for a cowboy. Most likely came from the wad of tobacco kept in their pocket for smoking.

Other terms for "cowboy" include "saddle-warmer", "saddle-slicker", "cow-poke", "cow-prod", or "cow-hand".
