First Cattle Ranches in Florida

I recently had a visitor stop by my blog and share the great Florida Cattle Drive of 2006 with me. I knew Florida was full of cattle country thanks to the John Kral book that a North Carolina girlfriend gave me - it is a beautiful coffee table book. Though I've never been invited to work on a Florida cattle ranch..HINT, The terrain looks fascinating - though watch out for the gators! The Spaniards introduced horses and cattle in Florida long before cattle ranching started in Texas -
Here is a narrated slide show about the Great Fla. Cattle Drive in 2006
and here are some photos from the Cattle Drive by Carlton Ward. Thanks for sharing Leslie!

Ringo is his name!

This picture doesn't do justice to how beautiful this horse is. I would like to think he is named after the outlaw Johnny Ringo but I don't know this for sure.
