Old north West cowboy slang for a failed homestead farmer. Almost as bad as calling a cowboy a sheep herder.Cattle people never liked homesteaders and all their barbed wire fences.
1889- This whole town is wall to wall honyockers, bankers and sheep shit.
noun: one who lacks respectability or social graces; one prone to exhibiting frequent displays of the screaming yips.
Coach Clark: If you honyockers don't run the goddam play correctly, you will be running fartlets until you puke!
