We capture this image of the cowboys driving the longhorn heard down the street at the Stockyard in Fort Worth.  The Fort Worth Stockyards now celebrates Fort Worth's long tradition as a part of the cattle industry with a cattle drive down the street as they would of done back in the day.  The city has long been known as a cow town probably because of the Stockyards. The Fort Worth Stockyard is now listed on the National Register as a historical district since 1976. The Stockyards consist of mainly entertainment and shopping venues today that capitalize on the "Cowtown" theme  of Fort Worth. The Leddy boot company is located in the heart of the Stockyard along with the Maverick Fine Western wear.  Also there  saloons where customers "can 'belly up' to the bar, relax and have a cold beer while in the Stockyards; just like they did in the days of the cattle drives.  Many bars and nightclubs are located in the vicinity, and the area has a Western motif. There is also an opry and a rodeo. The Fort Worth Stockyards are the last standing stockyards in the United States.  On April 1, 2011, the Fort Worth Stockyards Stables were remodeled and reopened. They are located next door to the Hyatt hotel in an original Historic Stockyards building that was built in 1912. These stables offer full care boarding, overnight boarding, hourly boarding, horse rentals on the open trails of the Trinity River and carriage rides. Boarders can ride their horses all around the Historic Stockyards for a feel of those historic times.
