A few short phrases...

Could someone please tell me if I translated these English phrases correctly into Spanish? Thank you very much in advance.

The weary ranchers = Los ganaderos desgastados
The scared ranchers = Los ganaderos miedo
The fat/chubby chupacabra = El chupacabra de grasa (or is it El chupacabra gordo?)
Halloween = El dia de las brusas
The evil boy = El chico malo

The weary ranchers = Los ganaderos desgastados cansados/exhaustos ("desgastado" is used for objects, like worn-out tires, clothing, etc.)
The scared ranchers = Los ganaderos miedo asustados/espantados ("miedo" is a noun, not an adjective. And "miedoso" means fearful or coward)
The fat/chubby chupacabra = El chupacabras de grasa (or is it El chupacabras gordo?) ("gordo" is correct. "De grasa" would mean that it's some sort of sculpture made of fat...)
Halloween = El día de las brusas brujas (In Mexico it's called "Día de Muertos", but although "Halloween" is internationally understood, it's right to call it "Día de Brujas".
The evil boy = El chico malo (If you're talking about a young boy mischieving, the word proposed by Poli, "niño travieso", would fit better)
Some comments and corrections above.

Aquí no decimos Halloween (bueno, últimamente sí, por la influencia de películas norteamericanas sobre el tema). Para nosotros el 1 de noviembre es el Día de Todos los Santos; el 2 de noviembre es el Día de los Fieles Difuntos (ni muertos, ni brujas ni calabazas ).
