“I love the herd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Who doesn't love big friendly lumbering steers with horns the size of a mid size car? The herd is quintessential Fort Worth and everyone should see the herd at least once. Maybe a few times. The herd makes me happy every time I get to visit. If you have time, be sure to walk behind the Livestock Exchange Building and visit the herd in their pen. You can also see some goats and maybe a rooster.

“Very fun - free - definitely worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Longhorns parade down a few blocks twice a day with a few "real" cowboys herding them along. It was fun to watch and definitely something you should do if you are in Ft Worth - you won't see this anywhere else. Arrive early to find parking and get your place along the route. We stood across from Stockyard Station and had a great view. You can have your picture made while sitting on a Longhorn too - great for kids.

“Fun to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Cattle runs run twice a day every day T 11:30 and 4:00 pm. They let about 12 cattle run the streets. Kids would like it. Lasts about 5-10 minutes. Don't go out of your way just to see this. One of the best stores to visit is fincher's -115 E Exchange ave. we saw belts that were half the price at other stores. We bought two and other stuff. Lots of western wear, boots, etc.

“Only in Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Only in Texas could you see Longhorns coming down the streets, we have been to the Stockyards before, but each time gets better.
