Yesterday, to wrap up the week of my niece’s 12th birthday, we decided to take her to the Stockyards in Fort Worth. Being the horse-lover that she is, we knew this was a perfect place to take her where she could get a temporary fix on meeting the need to pet, hug, love on and talk to horses in the flesh. And there were many! All of the cowboys and cowgirls riding along were quick to stop and let her do just that. And the horses enjoyed it, too!
We arrived in time to view the cattle drive that takes place every day. If you are ever in the Fort Worth area, make time to head down to the Stockyards Station to spend the day, eat good food, experience history and watch the drive.
