Part of the fun of visiting the stockyards is running into one of these characters. Members of the Legends of Texas Org. regularly stroll around Exchange street.(mostly on horseback)...and you may even see a gun fight.The men and woman who represent this organization do extensive research on the characters they portray, so you may think Sam Houston, Billy the Kid, Wild Bill Hickock and Bell Starr have come back to life.!
By the way these pictures were all taken by my talented sister Polly. She recently joined a walking photo tour of the stockyards.
I think these guys have a fun job.
It's hard to pick a favorite
but I think this may be mine.
