Western Word of the Week - Baquero - #WesternWordoftheWeek #WesternWednesdays

Howdy!

Welcome to our Weekly Western Word of the Day...or, as I affectionately call it, Western Wednesdays!

Baquero - a cowboy; from the Spanish word "vaquero"

Other terms include "backhara", "buckayro", and "buckaroo" (used in the Northwest)

Just a note, "Vaca" is the Spanish word for "cow".
