This is what the discerning cowgirl wears in the new millenium. You have sun protection, and a little help when you're stuck out with the doggies after dark. At the moment she is alternately exploring with and fighting with a wizard, who is, himself, wearing a hat. His is the blue mortarboard from his kindergarten graduation, and is "The Hat of Smartness."
When the cowgirl isn't having adventures, she has been known to do a little reading. Occasionally with the help of gravity. Do you think it's easier if the blood is all rushing to your head?
