B is for Buckaroo, who's a cowboy through and through. These broncobusters you'll often see riding on horseback, yelling "Whoopee!"
The word buckaroo comes from the Spanish name for cowboy, which is vaquero. If you say "vaquero" and "buckaroo," you will hear that they sound similar.
A cowboy is someone who tends cattle, usually from horseback. Cowboys do many jobs including watching over cattle as they graze on the prairie, rounding them up to bring them into the corral, taking care of them when they are sick, branding them to identify ownership, and working with the horses that are the cowboy's partners.
