The weather was beautiful as the members of the After Schoolers experienced a wonderful guided walking tour of the Fort Worth Stockyards. The history of the Old West came alive as our knowledgeable guide, Joel, led us through Mule Alley, the Livestock Exchange Building and the original pens of the Cattlemen’s Catwalk. Joel shared stories about Bill Pickett, Quanah Parker, his own grandfather and many others. As we watched the cattle drive along the brick road we could imagine the difficulties of the cattle drives long ago. We enjoyed a tasty lunch at Riscky’s Barbeque before heading back to the Ranch. It was a fun way to learn about our fascinating Fort Worth and spend time getting to know each other.
