1st time to see the herd/ cattle drive. Grandson really enjoyed seeing the longhorns go down the brick street in the stockyards. I'm sure we will be seeing it again on our next trip.

If you have never seen the Longhorns up close it is worth the trip. Happens twice daily and is a sight to see.

I don't know about you, but it's not every day you get to see a bunch of cowboys and longhorns strolling down the street! The herd makes the rounds twice per day (11:30am & 4pm) and lasts about 5 minutes. Awesome, unique experience.
