Fort Worth is the sixteenth most populous city in the United States of America and the fifth most populous city in the state of Texas. Located in North Central Texas, the city is a cultural gateway into the American West and covers nearly 780 km2 in Tarrant, Denton, and Wise counties, serving as the seat for Tarrant County. The city was established in 1849 as an Army outpost on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River. Today Fort Worth still embraces its Western heritage and traditional architecture and design. USS Fort Worth (LCS-3) is the first ship of the United States Navy named after the city. Fort Worth is home to the Kimbell Art Museum, considered to have one of the best collections in the world, and housed in what is widely regarded as the most beautiful work of modern architecture in the world. Also of note are the Museum of Modern Art and the Amon Carter Museum, the latter of which houses one of the most extensive collections of American art in the world, in a building designed by Philip Johnson. The city is also home to Texas Christian University and Texas Wesleyan University and many multinational corporations including Bell Helicopter, Lockheed Martin, and others.

Texas Longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to 2.1 m tip to tip for steers and exceptional cows, and 0.91 to 2.0 m tip to tip for bulls. Similar cattle were imported by Spanish colonists into other parts of North America, including California and Florida. Horns can have a slight upward turn at their tips or even triple twist. Texas Longhorns are known for their diverse coloring. The Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America and the International Texas Longhorn Association serve as the recognized registries for the breed. Due to their innate gentle disposition and intelligence, Texas Longhorns are increasingly being trained as riding steers. The Cattlemen’s Texas Longhorn Registry is the recognized breed registry dedicated to preserving the purest Texas Longhorn bloodlines. Using visual inspection of cattle by the most knowledgeable Texas Longhorn breeders and the use of blood type analysis to further identify parentage, it has the ideal of preserving fullblood Texas Longhorn cattle that are genetically and historically correct for posterity.

There are some on ebay right now but I called every store in Ft Worth today and it's officially sold out. Several of the stores said it was being redesigned. Strange they couldn't get the stores stocked with the new one before they ran out of the old.

Redesigned meaning being replaced with the YAH mug??

Hi! I'm moving back to Germany pretty soon but I have a friend in Denton and would like to know where they still have this (old) mug (and the once from Dallas)?, so that she could grab one for me before they're all gone? Please pm me the address of the stores, thanks a lot!
