Today's word is waddy, spelled W-A-D-D-Y.

Waddy is a noun that means cowboy. Here is the word used in a sentence from the Alamogordo Daily News by Michael Johnson.

"There is always an Old West gunfight re-enactment to watch, a nightly rodeo to attend, and waddies on horseback to witness strolling into downtown, tying their steed to a hitching post at the historic Irma Hotel - named after Buffalo Bill's daughter - and enjoying an after-work beverage and dinner."

It's easier to rope a wild mustang than to round up the origin of the word waddy. Some folks claim it comes from wadding, the material used in stuffing or padding, because waddies were once extra hands hired to fill in when extra cowhands were needed. But other evidence suggests that waddy originally referred to a cattle rustler, a usage that wouldn't support the wadding theory. There is also an Australian waddy meaning "stick" or "club," but definitive evidence of a connection between the Australian and American words remains elusive. All researchers can say with certainty is that waddy has been used to refer to a cowboy since at least the late 19th century.
