... the state with a huge building for the Headquarters of the Quarter Horse Association and signs advertising Angus and Bulls for sale. In previous states we passed the old fashioned windmills in open fields, but in Texas they are still plentiful in the grazing paddocks for powering pumps for watering the herds.
We had passed a sign several times on the road that designated the road we were traveling " Purple Heart Trail." Curious ...
