During the mid 1800s the Longhorn appeared in Texas. This new breed of cattle developed as Spanish breeds mixed with English cattle brought by U.S. settlers. Texas settlers used them for supply's such as cups,bowls,and house utensils. The Longhorns became more valuable as cattle ranching grew in the late 1850s.
Widespread fencing led to conflict in Texas in the early 1880s. Owners of small properties complained that they were being surrounded by the fences of giant cattle companies. Before long range wars broke out. A Gainsville farmer found a note that said ''If you don't make gates we will make them for you''.
The daily life of a cowboy is hard if your not used to it. For example waking up every morning and taking care of your cattle they also have to take care of crops. You have to grow food. Get your own supply's for growing crops and taking care of your cattle.
