Huebner cattle drive

The Huebner cattle drive, a tradition dating to 1919 came to life again Tuesday afternoon, when cowhands drove the herd of about 500 cattle across the Colorado River near its mouth at the LCRA Matagorda Bay Nature Park. It took some encouragement to move the herd off Matagorda Peninsula, where the animals spend winter grazing, across the river. One reluctant member of the herd, below, required some individualized cowboy handling to join the rest. The hands helping the drive didn’t swim their horses across and left the water herding to seveal boats.
