When anyone first joins the Ranch they are given a status of Greenhorn, once they have made a number of posts the status is upgraded to Ranch Hand. Very helpful/experienced members can get upgraded to Rancher or they may be asked to become moderators of which there are several levels starting at Bartender.

Cows is a new feature. It is so new that very few users have them.

Regardless, if you want to know about them, see the description in the ranch guide.

I noticed every now and then people ask about the meaning of their Saloon Title. May be we can make it a link and it takes to Saloon Title page or something when clicked.
 
You would be much easier to understand if you took that bucket off of your head. And that goes for the tiny ad too!
