“An elaborate piece of artwork, RWK’s depiction of Charles Goodnight shows the cattle rancher in his later years. Goodnight, perhaps the best known rancher in Texas, is sometimes known as the “father of the Texas Panhandle.” Mr. Goodnight brought up long-horns to the St. Louis Stockyard and later introduced short-horns. Mr. Charles Goodnight – an American Legend, Texas Ranger, Indian Scout, co-founder of the Goodnight-Loving Trail – was a co-founder of the 1800′s St Louis Stockyard where he drove his longhorns to the markets and introduced the shorthorns.
