Do You Know...
...another English word for a cowboy, buckaroo, is an Anglicization of vaquero.  At least one linguist has speculated that the word "buckaroo" derives from the Arabic word bakara or bakhara, also meaning "heifer" or "young cow", and may have entered Spanish during the centuries of Islamic rule.
