About the Fort Worth Herd


Texas LonghornThe Fort Worth Herd was created as part of the city's sesquicentennial celebration. The city acquired a herd of fifteen Texas Longhorns, each steer representing one decade from Fort Worth's colorfulpast. The city also hired a diverse team of drovers clad in authentic 19th century clothing and riding horses mounted with period correct saddles.

On June 12, 1999, in front of 15,000 spectators, the Fort Worth Herd made its first cattle drive to the Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District.

Since then, twice daily, the drovers drive the longhorns along East Exchange Avenue, harking back to a time when the great herds rumbled through the dusty streets of Fort Worth on their way to market.
