Ft. Worth is Longhorn Country!

Recently, Tim and I learned that Ft. Worth, Texas, is home of the only twice daily cattle drive in the world. Tim is on vacation all this week, so we decided to spend the afternoon at the Ft. Worth Stockyards. And.....even though the event has been staged since 1993, it was our first time to witness the stately Texas longhorns and Texas cowboys/cowgirl re-enacting a historic Texas cattledrive.
FYI: Following the Civil War the Texas economy was pretty much a bust. Texas longhorns were only worth about a dollar a head here in Texas, but they garnered forty dollars a head up North. Hence, the long cattledrives north along such famous cattle trails as the Chisholm Trail.
