HISTORY IN BRONZE
Vaquero is Spanish for cowboy. Hispanics of the era were known for their skills as cowboys and the influence is evident today in many Spanish-based words used for cowboy equipment, such as chaps, lariat and others. In this scene, the Vaquero has spotted a rustler trying to steal cattle from the drive. The Vaquero was created by Mike Hamby and unveiled in May 2008.
