With the temporary reprieve in lockdown rules here in Texas a few weeks ago we managed to visit the Stockyards in Fort Worth. For anyone who hasn’t been or heard of it before i highly recommend you go there if you’re ever in North Texas. The Stockyards are a site of huge historic importance for the cattle industry in America. Cattle is pretty ubiquitous here in Texas. After the Texas Revolution there were an enormous of cows roaming around the state. Many budding entrepreneurs saw the value in trying to gather them and bring them to market. All of the cattle was driven overland from southern Texas north to the railroad in Kansas for transportation to the bigger cities in America at the time. Many of the trails including the Chisholm trail, passed directly through Fort Worth itself.

Howdy, my name’s Matt. I'm originally from England but now live here in the Great State of Texas. Since moving here I thought it would be fun to try something new and enter the world of photo blogging. View more posts
