The third day of my stay in Texas, we made a trip to Fort-Worth. I had no idea, what was on there. Nearby Fort-Worth we stopped, becouse someone would buy something in a shop. And then I saw my first cowboys...., life !! Very strange to see with the high buildings in the background. Old and new together.
We parked the cars in the touristic area of the town, on the ground of the very big horse stables, where in the first World- war the horses were breeded for the over sea battlefields, to be slaughtered in great honour. They were not asked for there permission. But indeed, later the horses received a bronze plaquette, placed in Washington!!
After paying a visit to the stables, we walked along the street and saw how the cowboys usually played in their spare time with whip and lasso. It was a funny thought to see, how they were playing like little boys.
After dinner we had time to watch the cowboys and to take pictures of them. They were sitting on real horses and wore real big hats on their heads. In the afternoon they drove the bulls with the long horns from the corrals to the arena. There it was possible to join in the game Bull-riding
Not a sharp picture, I know. That was impossible with so many roundings.
After it had darkened, we were still wandering through the Stockyards and wondering about what was going on. It looked to be an old Western city. But instead of fastened horses, we only saw big motor cycles in front of the saloons.
