Wild West Cowboy Facts

Tenderfoot, Greenhorn


Usually a somewhat derogatory term:  An Easterner who is unschooled in the ways of the West, also called a "greenhorn" or "pilgrim".  Some say the term possibly applied first to Eastern Cattle whose feet were more tender than the Longhorn cattle, then later it applied to people new to the West.
