Saddle up a Longhorn


The New Mexico Ag Expo will welcome back the Texas Longhorn steers from the herd of the Folsom Falls Ranch.

Fred Balmer and a crew of three or four Texas Longhorns and an equal number of unorthodox cowboys and cowgirls will be on hand to show off the impressive size and horns of this historic breed. Fred's Longhorns are a little different from most, as they saddle up the bovines and ride them in the Ag Expo parade twice a day.

They'll also be on hand to answer questions, and kids of all ages can have their photo taken next to the Longhorn celebrities.

Balmer has also been known to sporadically spring into prose and recite his own brand of Cowboy poetry. All you have to do is ask.

There is no admission to the grounds or any of the events during the two-day run of the Expo, sponsored by Plateau and Dairy Farmers of America. The show will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 19, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 20. For applications or more information about vendor booths or attendance call 800-635-8036, email the Expo at chamber@portales.com or visit the all-new website at nmagexpo.com.
