Longhorn Cattle - Step aside comin' thru....
Lens: Sigma 18-125 Camera: K-5II

More from the Stockyards...

Fort Worth was a major rest stop on the Chisholm trail as the cattle were driven North. Because of this, the city became known as 'cowtown'. Some of the old stockyards still exist today, but now they are shops, restaurants, and bars. The City embraces it's history, and the stockyards are now a tourist destination. Twice a day they have a 'cattle drive' down the cobblestone streets...quite a site to say the least. These nice fellas are the stars of the show and aren't camera shy at all.

Nice pictures! I'm glad to see that they're preserving at least that part of our history. I've sometimes wondered what it would take to recreate a complete cattle drive .... although the other end might be tricky {because of development in the Kansas cities involved}. There were various different trails depending on how far west the Santa Fe Railroad had gone; I believe the Chisholm Trail, ending in western Kansas, was the last one - the first being the Ellsworth Trail, ending in central Kansas. When we lived in Kansas, we were just a few miles from the intersection of the Ellsworth Trail and the Santa Fe Trail, and I often imagined John Wayne riding past our house.

Nice photos, those are quite the horns I see, I guess the name 'long horned' isn't pulled out of thin air!
