English term or phrase: waddies
John Grady and his friend Lacey are thinking of leaving their ranch, which will soon be sold, and go down to Mexico to look for a job in a big ranch there.

JOHN: You think they can't use two more top hands?

LACEY: Real cowboys, huh?

JOHN: Just like the old-time waddies.

What does "waddies" mean here? And what is the singular form, "waddy" or "waddie"? Thanks a lot.

I just noticed that you posted this question twice. The other answers seem to make sense, I suppose it depends on the context.
