Gloss:
A term primarily used in the Southwest United States, vaquero (derived from the Spanish word vaca "cow") refers mainly to a working cowboy. The vaquero traditions of horsemanship, equipment, dress attire and language greatly influenced other working cowboys. As extraordinarily skilled horsemen, the vaqueros played a major role in the development and management of the ranching industry in Mexico, as well as the United States.
