MEET THE LONGHORNS

Each of the longhorns that participate in the Fort Worth Herd cattle drive represent a decade that Fort Worth has been a city. All of the steers have been donated to the programs 501 (c)(3) nonprofit support group, Friends of the Fort Worth Herd by generous longhorn lovers from all over the country.

Each steer joins our program with their own unique story to tell. Collect all 18 Fort Worth Herd longhorn trading cards to learn all about your favorite steer by visiting the Fort Worth Herd Drovers in the Stockyards National Historic District or stopping inside the Stockyards Visitors Center.

Complete trading card packets are also available for purchase at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame for $5.00 & benefit the Friends of the Fort Worth Herd.

Amon Carter Museum of American Art: With the Help of Friends

With the Help of Friends celebrates fifteen dynamic photographs ranging from the 1930s to the present day that were selected and purchased over the recent years by the Amon Carter with the assistance of its photography collection supporters. Whether it’s the youthful theatrics of Joaquin Trujillo’s Jacky or the raw industrial motion of Margaret Bourke-White’s Four Thousand Fahrenheit, Otis Steel Company, these photographs tell vivid stories about life and how we think about our world. At the same time, the exhibition proclaims the vibrancy of the museum’s ongoing relationship with its members, and the key help that members provide in keeping the collection one of the world’s leading repositories of photography.
