The word “Cowboy” first appeared in English around 1715 – 1725, in Spanish the word “vaquero” is used to refer to horsemen looking after cattle. In fact, the word vaquero arose in Spain long ago (the way of using a rider to look after cattle originated in the country) before cowboy culture came to America a few centuries before. In addition to this orthodox origin, in folklore there are also some simpler stories about the cowboy’s appearance. They believe that cowboys were created by a job that is typical of herding boys – a job that requires physical strength and is always urged by ranchers with statements like “Fetch that Cow, Boy! (Bring that cow over here, boy.) After being brought to Mesoameric territory, the method gradually spread across many parts of America and upon reaching Mexico it began to flourish.
