Also, the Concho Cowboys performed an award-winning skit.

The Site Manager at Fort Concho, Robert Bluthardt, says, "it does have a lot of attractive features, being out with the land in nature, being your own boss, and just having a lifestyle that didn't have a lot of responsibilities beyond the cattle that you were trying to drive the market."

The event was only one day, but the American Plains Artist Show is on display until August 5th.
