Forget about the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace in London. Fort Worth, Texas, has a something just as majestic yet much more real.
Aries Productions of Arlington, Texas, recently took part in a historical event when it sent two film crews to capture the inaugural movement of a herd of longhorn cattle through downtown Fort Worth.
The cattle, acquired by the city in celebration of its 150th anniversary, will be ceremoniously herded through the former stockyards area on a daily basis as a tourist attraction.
Said Aries Productions director Scott Burress, “It was tough; it was challenging to run along with the longhorns and try not to get trampled or step in any manure.”
Footage of the cattle drive will be integrated into a documentary about Fort Worth. –J. Dee Hill
