A goat roper is a wannabe rancher or a cowboy poser. Goat ropers have the 4x4 pickup and the cowboy hat, but no cattle, horses, brain, or land.

A wannabe cowboy who wears their boots over their pants, thus showing their ignorance of the purpose of the boots. They are more concerned with showing off how expensive their boots are, than practicality. (You wear your pants over your boots to keep snow, mud, and shit out of them.)

When you are learning calf roping, you can accidentally snap the calf’s neck with your rope. Goats are less valuable than calves, so a goat-roper is a novice who is required to practice on goats. (I learned this in Lubbock, Texas, back in 1977.)
Yes, I know he does a lot of repair work for folks in the neighborhood, but as far as I’m concerned, he’s no more than a goat roper.

Not to be confused with a "goat rope", a Goat Roper is an archaic term for a redneck. It lost popularity in the late 1900's, but has had a resurgence in popularity recently. A goat roper denotes someone who is a "hick", and/or clumsy and stupid. Usually said person works in the farming industry, but is not exclusive to this.
"That guy Bill is a real goat roper, did you see the spit stains running down the driver's side of his old, dented 1978 Ford F150 pickup?"

Someone who dresses like a cowboy but completely lacks rancher skills and knowledge. This poser wears the hat and drives the truck but has no clue what to do with the cow.

Any male who doesn't really care if the sex is with a human or a four footed friend, esp. residents of Lehi Utah.
