open

adjective; zero derivation
in cowboy jargon, referring to a female bovine that is not pregnant I heard this new meaning of ‘open’ growing up on a ranch. The cowboys have to differentiate between the cows that are and aren’t pregnant. If she is not pregnant she is “open” and has to be separated from the rest.
 
Put her in the back pen, she is open.
