Subject: RE: What do ranchers raise?
I believe the "dowgies" are the young cattle of either sex. As Carl Sandburg used to sing:

Early in the spring we round up the dogies,
Mark and brand and bob off their tails,
Round up our horses, load up the chuck wagon,
Then throw the dogies up on the trail.

Whoopee, to yi yo, git along, little dogies!
It's your misfortune and none of my own;
Whoopee, to yi yo, git along, little dogies,
For you know that Wyoming will be your new home!
