Did you know…?

  • In Texas, cowboys are known as cowpunchers.
  • In the Great Basin region of the United States, a cowboy is normally referred to as a buckaroo. This is an anglicization of the Spanish term vaquero, which in turn is derived from vaca, the Spanish word for cow.
  • The saguaru cactus (Carnegiea gigantea) is a tree-like cactus that can grow to be over 12 meters tall. It is a common image in cowboy movies and also in Mexican culture, since it is native to the Sonoran Desert. In 1994, the Saguaro National Park was established in Arizona to help protect the species.
  • In 1836, Samuel Colt patented the mechanically indexing cylinder – the mechanism which led to the widespread use of the revolver. According to Colt, he came up with the idea during a sea journey, where he got the inspiration from a capstan with a ratchet and pawl mechanism. With Colt’s new invention, it was no longer necessary to manually rotate the cylinder in a revolver.
  • Hat ‘n’ Boots is a roadside attraction in Seattle, Washington, USA. Created in 1954, it is billed as having the largest cowboy hat and cowboy boots in the country.
  • The oldest recorded use of the term cowboy is from 1725, when it was put in print by the Anglo-Irish writer Johathan Swift, who used it to denote a lad who was tending cows. In standard English at the time, such a lad would normally have been referred to as a cowherd rather than a cowboy. The notion of the cowboy as an adult cattle tender, working on horseback, in the United States, didn’t form until the 19th century.
