Fact of the Day: Vaquero

While American cowboys are famous for their hats, horses, and ways to work a farm/livestock, the vast majority of cowboy culture was derived from the Mexican vaqueros.

  6. Thanks to Hollywood Westerns, people often use the term "cowboy" to describe any white male living in the Old West (for instance, "Cowboys vs. Indians" when it was much more often "U.S. Cavalry vs. Indians), rather than as a specific job title with specific duties. In truth, cowboys were (and are) essentially ranch hands.
