Ft. Worth, Texas

Ft. Worth Stockyard
This has been one of the best weekends I have had in a very long time. I am so excited to show you the pictures that I took that I am honestly leaving a lot out. Such as, I am not even going to show any scenery shots or train pictures getting there. We are going straight to Ft. Worth Texas. So sit back and enjoy.

This is a little boy just walking the area with his parents. He was so cute we had to get some pictures of him. I found him to be one of my most favorite subjects of the whole day. Enjoy this cute young cowboy.
4:00 Cattle Drive Down Main Street
Cowboys waiting for the drive.
Let's get movin'

More cowboys to help bring in the herd. And yet another one!

Little Bull Rider
Get On and Get Set

Watch your form. Let's go! Just Keep Hanging On!

For the 8 second Ride!

Let them grow up to be doctors, and lawyers and


Or Bikers

Riding a Hog instead of a Bull.

Or singing in Texas to the crowds.

Or a Police Officer Writing Tickets to

Law Violators!
The View is Beautiful every where you look.

Whether it is the buildings or the flowers.

Or Even the Girls handing out Alka Seltzer Packs.
Is the food THAT bad???
Nope, the food was great and so was the pride in our America!

Cooper Riding the Long Horn of Texas

This was my favorite Cowboy.
He is cracking his whip, horribly loud
and the horse never even flinches.
Awesome!Just look at the character of his face.
This man has lived a life huh?

And not sure it has been the easiest of lives either.

There was so much personality in this man, and he loved the crowd.

The Stockyard Water Tower.

This was the Cowboy that handles the long horn that Cooper was just riding.

The statue of Bull Dogging.

Or Steer Wrestling

Call it what you want.

Authentic looking Indian and his Appaloosa Pony.

I have one of these, just not as pretty.

Horse that is!

Riding into the sunset.

What a mode of transportation!

If you EVER get the chance to attend the Stockyards in Ft. Worth, please go. It is an experience that I think you would enjoy. If you are interested in country, ranching, long horn cattle, cowboys, or just good food and fun, then will be a place you will love. We rode the Am Track from OKC and that in itself was a blast. Oooohhhhhh it was a great day!

I went to the Ft Worth Stock Show while in college. Your pictures are fabulous and I bet your memories are too. How fun! (And I know rodeo fun :D)

Looks like you had a great time. I've never seen anyone ride a steer with a saddle. I love anything cowboy, as you know from my love of all things John Wayne.

Mention Cowboy and OH I wanna go!

You did a fantastic job of posting the pics with comments :) I feel like I just had a tour!

Your pictures are great and so clear!! What kind of camera is it?

Cooper is adorable and I'm happy you guys had a great time. I wish I could have been there in your camera case!
