Fort Worth Herd marks 10 years on the move

The Fort Worth Herd’s longhorns and a cowhand amble along Exchange Avenue on Saturday. About 75 people signed up to ride along.

  FORT WORTH — Hundreds of spectators lined Exchange Avenue in the heat Saturday morning to watch the 10th anniversary cattle drive along the Trinity River.

It’s believed to be the 7,051st drive that Fort Worth has held to provide visitors a glimpse of life in the 1800s.

About 75 people signed up to ride along Saturday, said Kristin Jaworski, trail boss since 2002. One couple came from Arkansas.

“Some of the fellows here rode with us in ’99,” Jaworski said.

Joe and Elizabeth Devane of Alabama were in the Stockyards on vacation. They didn’t know that they would be witnessing history.

“Those animals are magnificent with those horns,” Elizabeth Devane said.
