Fort Worth's Old West - Part 3

I arrived just in time to see the twice-a-day cattle drive show.

Here is a close up of the cattle who probably know this route in their sleep.

You can see the rest of the street as the cattle passes by.

Sign indicating the daily cattle schedule.

This sign was displayed on the exterior wall of a building showing herding techniques.

I'm enjoying this trip to Fort Worth. Thanks! That herding how-to sign ought to be on the inside cover of some westerns, don't you think? Like maps in James Michener novels.

Thanks Lynette. I always think a picture or illustration is worth a thousand words.

Neat pictures, I have never been to the stockyards.

These Ft. Worth Photos are great! Thanks for sharing them.

I imagine a cattle drive right through the middle of town is a sight to see! It looks hilly there.
