George Ranch Event

Our MG Car Club events are diverse and occasionally quite educational.  Our trip this month to the historic George Ranch, southwest of Houston, provided sights, sounds, aromas and experiences not available elsewhere.  This Longhorn is 1600 pounds of “docile” with a 7 foot wingspan.  In the video, you will see the method used in the old days to deal with a tick that caused problems for northern cattle at the end of a drive to Montana or other points north.  The ticks jumped from the southern critters to the others and caused serious, even fatal problems.  When infected, the Texas cows had advantage as they thought it was just another hot day.
