a "dude" ranch is not a working ranch, it's for city folk tourists to come and think they are cowboys, I.E: "dudes". Imbred is already stuck on me, my buddy has been calling me that for 10 years.

Easterner's were teased by those out West because they would come out West to 'play' cowboy. They would 'pay' to stay on ranches and be taught how to cowboy.

Their nickname was "dude's"

So someone that Pay's to Play a Cowboy

Originally "dude" meant a city person in the country, with strong connotations of ignorance of rural ways. The word as used in contemporary culture, typically American, may have had its origins in the Irish, and indeed, dúd in modern Irish is a derogatory term for a foolish person.

One example of this use is "Dude Ranches", ranches built in the western states of America for "Dudes", or city folk to experience "cowboy life". "Dude" was also used in the 1860s-1870s by cowboys to describe a newcomer to the West. Tombstone Sherriff John Slaughter was thought to be a "dude" when he first arrived in Tombstone. In the Howard Hawks film "Rio Bravo" from 1959 one of the actors (Dean Martin) is called "Dude".
