Today I was in Fort Worth, so decided to visit to do some sightseeing between morning and afternoon church services. My friend Stacy recommended a list of places to visit, but I didn’t even make it past the first one which was the stockyards.
There were a lot of great signs around, including this one for the Cross Eyed Moose Antiques & Western Furnishing store. This was an interesting store and I might have walked out with a few things if I didn’t have to carry them home on the plane. I also visited a couple of galleries and enjoyed the wonderful smells of the western wear stores.
I also really liked the sign for Cattlemen’s Steak House. However, I didn’t eat in the Stock Yards area as we had earlier gone for BBQ. There are some nice places that I might just have to go back some day to try.
It was fun to watch the cowboys bring the herd down the street. The size of the horns were amazing and you can really tell why they are called longhorns.
Watching them brought back a ton of memories of working cattle and building fence while working on the ranch.
I have a lot more pictures, so look for another stockyards post in the future.
